Just like the title says. Also, where were you born, because I know that I, like most men in the United States, am circumcised, but I've heard that it's less prevalent in Europe, and am curious to look at this disparity. Also, while I would like that we not turn this into a debate thread, please try to keep discussion civil.

No, I'm from Europe - our society doesn't particularly endorse the mutilation of a child's genitalia.

As was said above about Europe. Unless for a religious or some sort of personal preference Europeans are not generally circumcised.

Hey, why don't you cut the hostility?

Yes, but not until I was 29. Having caught it in my zip, my foreskin lost it's elastic properties, and so had to go, or I'd never be able to clean behind my colossal helmet.

Nope.

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?
#16
Nope.

I remember sitting in my psychology class for a year in college, noticing a film case on the shelf entitled "the circumcision that went wrong". Decided I didn't want to see it.
Turned out it was part of the 2nd year course.
Made me glad I never went through that shit.

It's been recommended by physicians for a long time. Mostly for hygienic reasons, in my understanding. However, recently doctors are more and more saying that it's not necessary. Also, there are arguments going both ways that it improves/degrades sexual performance and/or pleasure, but, there's never been anything conclusive and the general consensus is that it makes little difference either way.

Most americans are circumsized? Really? I really didnt know that. I always thought it was something jews did (no offence to anyone, just seriously thought that :P)

This is basically going to be North America, Jews and Muslims vs the world.

I live in Israel, I am circumsized. No surprise there.
I was circumcised at birth but i don't really have a problem with it. Circumcised dicks are nicer looking, foreskin looks like rotten sausage when your dick isn't erect
Jks, i don's have a problem with either and i don't think it's fair for people to get all creeped out by it.
But the argument that you shouldn't be allowed to circumcise a baby cos, obviously, it hasn't given you consent is a pretty strong argument and i sort of agree with it. But i don't mind cos i don't live in a country where people are creeped out by it.
#25
Yes, but I sort of wish I wasn't.

I'd take an anteater over not being able to feel sex as nature intended any day.

Yes, and I'm from the US. No surprise there, huh?

It is something that Jews do (don't judge, jesus was circumcised).
Americans started doing it cos it's healthier something. But health shouldn't be a problem if your wash properly.
#29
I'm a European non-Jew non-Muslim and yet my foreskin was chopped at birth. I don't know why. I think it was reasonably common practice here in the UK in the seventies.

I don't mind being circumcised. My ****-smashing ability seems unimpaired.

I don't like the idea of it being done without consent of parents, though. I'm pretty sure my parents didn't agree to it.

It's healthier in the same way removing your eyelids would be healthier - less place for dirt to accumulate, but it also means that the entire system of natural lubrication and cleansing that your body has evolved is negated.

I can. It's because Jesus had both, and one drunken night, they found out the hard way, and agreed to never ever mention it ever again.

Fine, but his parents were very religious Jews so the chances are quite high. BTW also girls can be circumcised, they do it in africa. So... if jesus was a girl... its possible...

I do, just as I would if I hadn't been circumcised, but I've always wondered just how much more difficult it would be to manage.

+1 for sentiment, -1 for inflammatory language.


No children should be circumcised. Ever.


Unless it's medically necessary, which is unusual.

I was circumcised as an adult, and it was never a problem.
