    I recall some of the board medical experts recently talking about the evils of circumcision. Unfortunately it would seem most medical experts not only disagree with you, but are in favor of it. :hat:

    How is a child going to get sexually transmitted diseases. If someone wants to get the operation when he grows up, OK but you shouldn't be allowed to be hacking bits off peoples dicks without their permission.

    Americans carry out these barbaric acts but laugh at Africans who perform female circumsion.

    I'm sure kids would prefer not to get vaccinations, those needles hurt, but the benefits outweigh the risk that the child is going to be traumatized. Anyway, I'll take the word of licensed medical experts over some message board doctors.

    interesting biological fact not worth knowing, the penis head is shaped like a mushroom so it will pull your sluts previous sperm donors goo out on the upstroke to give your guys a better chance of splitting that egg & extending your gene pool into the future...:hat:

    Sure there is: decreased sex drive, i.e., sex is not as pleasurable therefore less incentive to cheat on your man.

    Why do you think male circumcision came to be? Decrease sexual sensitivity in males and you get a much more productive male. You think that you think about sex a lot now--if the head of your johnson wasn't so desensitized by rubbing up against your garments all day, you never get anything done.

    Less fucky, more worky.

    Why would supposed decreased sensitivity cut down on sex drive? Sex drive is determined by hormonal processes, not the intensity of orgasms. Besides, the Judaic idea that circumcision reduces urge came from a rabbinical philosopher a thousand years after the practice was the standard for Jewish males.

    I'm not justifying circumcision, I just don't buy the theory.

    Anyway, as for the "female circumcision" thing, I really wish people would stop comparing the two. What most of us think of as "female circumcision" is actually clitoridectomy...which isn't the removal of the clit hood, but the removal/amputation of the clit itself (often along with the hood and sometimes labia). A male equivalent would be if doctors or rabbis actual cut the head (glans) of your dick off...which isn't the case.

    Again, I'm not weighing in on what's ethical and what's not, but I just wish people would stop comparing the two practices so casually. I've been following Ayaan Hirsi Ali and her organization for years and some of the practices done to young women in Africa and parts of the Islamic world are shit that you wouldn't even find in a Saw or Hostel movie.

    Anybody fucking a woman who already has a vagina full of another man's semen is not positively contributing to the gene pool. Not unless they ejaculate bleach.

    sex drive doesn't originate in your dick. it happens in your head. that's why 80-something guys and paraplegics still chase 20 yr olds: long after your dick stops working right the ancient part of your brain is still active and still trying to get you laid.

    Just because a jewish philosopher wrote it down a thousand years after the practice was established, doesn't mean that the rationale a thousand years prior wasn't the same, i.e., ancient jews never wrote anything down, relying on oral tradition rather than formal texts (until about the 1st century or even a little before).

    Do you think that the motivation to circumcise (thousands of years ago) was to lessen the chance of disease? Based upon that rationale, ancient man might have been yanking out his teeth as soon as they came in.

    There are two types of erections--psychogenic (message sent to brain after seeing, hearing, or thinking about something sexual) and reflexive (direct physical contact of an erogenous zone such as AND ESPECIALLY the head of the penis); reflexive erections are involuntary and can happen with or without sexual thoughts, but once they happen, sex/orgasm is the way to scratch that itch.
    [TABLE="class: codi-masthead, width: 100%"]
    [/TABLE]

    Circumcision cuts down on reflexive erections and thus the need to "relieve" that condition is likewise reduced, which results in less sex and more time/energy/focus on other tasks vital to survival such as food gathering, hunting and finding shelter.

    They've done studies on those with debilitating spinal injuries and while their hormonal functions are intact, they have decreased sex drive due to lack of sensation, although much of their lack of sex drive may also be attributed to emotional and psychological reasons e.g., feelings of physical inadequacy.

    My son is 21 and he actually thanked me for having him done. I've asked him before if he thinks I made a bad decision, he gives a resounding NO!. One of his friends was recently done at 23 years of age. Medically necessary. It was painful. But it is odd nature would make it the way it is when there's flaws to the design.:dontknow: But I find all dick uncut or cut to be :)



    F-mutt... he has no dick so it's not n issue for him:fuckyou:

    Right, removing an ultimately unnecessary piece of skin is exactly the same as amputating the nerve rich source of female pleasure. :rolleye::rolleye::rolleye: The clit is a female homologue of the penis. That means it's a better comparison to amputating a man's penis.

    Also, ever consider the trauma involved with a circumcision done at age 18?

    Women I've known say they find uncut weird and are turned off. Yes, there are drawbacks to circumcision, but freaking out women would seem to be a bigger one. You don't really hear them say "gross! He's circumsized" too often. Sal's penis should be a good example of the typical reaction.

    i agree with them... although... the best way to prevent penis cancer is to remove the penis...

    On a related note... you will also never break a finger if you cut your arms off...
