I have just been reading the "Muslim Question" thread ..


Muslim Question (by IceTitan447 Jan 20 2006 in Non Aviation)

but I think I have hijacked enough myself that I now need to start a new topic - please dont read any further if you are squeamish.

Firstly , I want to make it clear that I do not intend to be offensive to either Muslims or Jews ... but the subject of circumcision came up on the other thread and I as a nonMuslim/Jew I am curious and have some questions if anyone feels up to answering them for me

1/ do adults converting to either religion have to undergo the operation ?

2/ a poster on the other thread claimed that circumcision lowers STD
transmission and reduces rates of penile cancer - anyone have ( pardon
the pun ) hard facts on this ?

3/ I have been told that 'cut' men have less sensitive penises than 'intact'
men - despite the reputation that gay men have for being sluts I haven't
actually slept around all that much .. and only in western countries where
obviously circumcision is a lot less common ... anyone with a bit more
experience of both types care to tell me whether they think there is any
truth to this

4/ apparently sometimes adult males have to undergo circumcision for
medical reasons .... obviously anyone who has had this done is in a
pretty good position to advise whether sex/orgasm was more intense
before or after ... so , anyone who has been there , done that and is
brave enough to tell Anet ?

There have been a fair few very entertaining threads on this. Just ask TWFirst!  Wink

That said, I'm firmly on the rolltop side.

Having only ever experience one side of things, I'm afraid I can't answer most of your questions.

I do know that men wanting to convert to Jusaism or Islam do need to get themselves circumcised.

I knew a Parsee man here who wanted to get married to a Muslim woman. They decided he would convert and he went through the surgery at the age of 30. And the they broke up. What a waste!

Also, men who are "already cut" and want to convert to Judaism, are required in many temples to go through a symbolic circumcision. I don't know the details but a drop of blood is drawn from the area.

Quite right. This is Anet after all, where, evidently, freaks of the world unite!  Wink

It's usually easier to polish helmets than it is to dust every nook and cranny of a rolltop.

If you wish to convert to a religion who does not practice circumcision.....Is there a prosthetic foreskin on the market or can you have an eyelid transplanted there or just grab one from a cadaver?

Never really understood the reasons given to circumcise other than for a legitimate medical concern such as phimosis.

Also never understood why religions profess the removal of a body part which was placed there by the very "maker" they believe in.

If it wasn't meant to be there, then it wouldn't be there.

Not to imply that I have, but. . .
In the States circumcision for guys in my age range (30-50) is more the norm than the exception. They got this wild notion back in the early 20th century that it was the thing to do, and as far as I know it's still the 'norm' for most infants, although the practice is (luckily) declining. It wasn't until I started traveling to Europe in my late 20s that I ran into any uncut guys.

As far as the cleanliness issue, my only comment is that you can quickly tell if an uncut guy hasn't showered in a day or two, whereas, just dealing w/ the 'helmet' it's not so obvious on a circumcised guy.

Having said that, I prefer the full deal, my partner is as nature intended, and it works for both of us. I don't notice him being any more sensitive than me though.
