|I didn't watch the video but I read the text and it made me queasy. It almost makes me wish I would have a boy so I don't have to make the decision because I know I'll have to argue for no circumcision with my partner and we usually like to find some kind of compromise on things. I guess I'll just have to have him with me when I talk to the doctor about it and hope he changes his mind. That is, if we have a boy, thank god they don't do that to little girls too!! ( I've heard about what they do to girls in some countries ) It just seems like they wouldn't have that part if it was harmful to them.|
|We did have our son circumsised. I asked his daddy what he wanted to and he wanted it to be done. Mike isn't circumsised and has had issues with it, so he was adament that .Jaylon be done.
We were not present for the procedure, but he was given something to help with the pain. He didn't wake up for it, nor did he show any sign of discomfort while it was happening, or during the healing process. After a week we were not longer using the gauze and petroleum jelly and it looked good.
I think most people have it done if the baby father is done. (opposite in my case). If I had another son (which I am not) I would have it done again.
I have never heard that it desensitizes the penis if it's circumsized, but I'm not arguing, as I don't do as much research or reading as others. I know that I have had sex with men that are circumcised and men that are not, and I do not see that they enjoyed it any less or more either way.
|There are studies that show that uncircumcised men have a higher incidence of contracting HIV, but scientists are not sure why. I am not not not saying that one causes the other by any means, though. I was so glad we did not have to make that decision since we had 2 girls.|
