I've always wanted to know what women really thought bout that theme. Many a girls including my girlfriend tell me they prefer when a man is circumcised. Others say they are indifferent about it. I was circumcised at 13 and have been satisftied by the operation ever since . I don't feel i lost any sensitivity so don't go around with the sensitivity story when gining your opinion pls. bye

Well I'm Jewish...We have to get it done lol.
But seriously, most Jewish boys are circumcised at birth. It is easier to "clean" myself in the shower, as I don't have to pull it back and all that stuff. Don't ask how I know this, but one of my friends growing up wasn't circumcised, and he didn't really care all that much, he just hates the extra time spent in the shower cleaning the thing.

Mitzi: I never heard Trumpet play.
Bernadette: Play? He didn't *play*, dear. Trumpet didn't have a single musical bone in his body. No, Trumpet had an unusually large foreskin. So large that he could wrap the entire thing around a Monte Carlo biscuit.
Dammit, now I'm gonna have to watch Priscilla tonight.

Well, I got clipped for medical reasons at the age of 12, and no woman I´ve been with has been complainingabout my performance so far. It might have given me more "staying power"...
Else, what Lifeliner said for the Netherlands also applies to Germany.

"Ya i guess most americans are cut. In costa rica its the only positive american influence I can think so. Ever since the US circumcises, costa ricans do as well. Happy about it"
Don't be so sure about it. It was that way here in Costa Rica, but not in the last 15 years. They do it today "by request only".
I laugh a lot with some Jewish friends [men and women] specially in the Sabbath, [I'm Catholic but don't have any problem participating with them each single Friday night] when we talk about many different topics, and they suppose that I'm circumcised but they don't know that for sure, because I simply don't accept or deny it.
Some things are better to "keep it confidential" at certain point.

Thanks for the link TACAA320.
What a barbaric and disgusting thing to do to a baby. I can't stand to watch the video. The pictures are bad enough.
he just hates the extra time spent in the shower cleaning the thing.
So would he get his ears cut off too if it saved him an extra 20 seconds every day?
I am so thankful that my parents gave me the choice - very happy to keep it, thanks! I've never resented the 10 seconds it takes to wash in the shower every day, I've always kept it clean, and no woman has ever complained about it tasting strange when she's reciprocating a favour.

The fact that you had it done at 13 doesn't really say much since I'm sure you weren't truly using it
Some people consider it mutilation of the body, but while I see where they are coming from, I respectfully disagree. I feel that our parents make many decisions for us while we are growing up, and we are who we are based on them. So whats another decision on extra skin around your p.p.
Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

Aghhh! I couldn't imagine going through THAT operation when you're thirteen. I'm glad I got it over with after I was born.
As for the foreskin topic itself, one of my ex-girlfriends told me if she wanted to see the penis of an animal she'd watch the Discovery Channel--she didn't want the Discovery Channel coming alive in bed.

Uh...and just what "sensitivity" were you able to experiment with between birth and 13 years old? Men with intact foreskins typically cannot stand to have the foreskin rolled back with their underwear on because the head of the penis is too sensitive. Wouldn't it then be reasonable to assume circumcised males experience less sensitivity?

I was circumsised after 8 days of life as I am of the Jewish faith. I personally do not have a problem and I don't notice any problems. It is much cleaner and easy to clean. Uncut guys have to worry about cleaning the crap under the foreskin. People who say "It reduces sexual pleasure" need to learn there is more to life and a relationship than having a slightly better climax point.
