Whats wrong with Circumcision?
Topic: Case study of hiv and aids
June 24, 2019 / By Alwyn Question:
It seems that word around here claims that circumcision is bad, I was circumcised... when I was a baby. But Im now very confused. Because What I was told is, its a good thing to be circumcised because you don't have to worry about infection, and so on. What are the benefits of being uncircumcised?
There are so many posts claiming circumcision is bad, hence why I brought up the question.

my personal view is I don't like my man to be circumcised don't get me wrong if I meet a guy who was circumcised and I was attracted to him enough to sleep with him it would not put me off it's just that personally I would rather he had a natural penis mainly because I suppose where I live 99% of men have there foreskin it's normal here, and I think we are better informed in English schools about sexual matters than the USA judging by the questions asked here by young American boys.
WE are taught about the penis it's parts and the functions there off.
many years ago circumcision was popular here also it was thought just as in the US that the white stuff under the foreskin was a bad thing which could be responsible for all sorts of infections but that was before the days of micro biology and genetic studies
we now understand the reasons why the foreskin is there and it's purpose basically because it would take to long to give a full description here all human skin exudes an enzyme onto is surface the very purpose of this is to break down the protein coating of viruses and infections which land upon it. Because the glands of the penis is not skin it's membrane it does not have the ability to coat it's-self therefore the inner surface of the foreskin produces sufficient to do the job which when it mixes with dead skin cells it produces the stuff which fills Americans with dread (smegma) but the enzyme and the acid in human urine actually makes the under side of the foreskin one of the most hostile places on the human body for bacterial and viral infection in other words the foreskin protects from infection where as the exposed gland is open to any infection which land or is placed upon it so if a circumcised guy does not wash a female is far more likely to pick up an infection from it even if it has not penetrated into the mans system so he can carry infection without actual having it himself
OK I admit there is one group of infection which has learnt to deal with this environment the yeast infection however women are 50 time more likely to get this and pass it on to a male than the other way round and in 98% of guys who get yeast infections (very rare) less than 1% in a lifetime and of that 1% or multiply it up to 100 in 10,000..... 98 will be cured with out circumcision now take a look at the rate of infection per head of population between England and the US in all instances the US is higher HIV/AIDs nearly double that of England and in the case of chlamydia 8 time higher so does that blow the idea that circumcision is cleaner out of the water or not of coarse it does!
and finally American girls and women are at long last learning the truth (well the intelligent ones are)
and are listening to the Experts from every medical group around the world including the US and that is that circumcision does more harm than good and is not recommended anymore
sorry but what you was told years ago was a deliberate deception to promote circumcision for two reason
1 it placed lots of money into evil doctors money grasping hands
2 So that certain religious group who promote this practise on so called religious grounds could live amongst you without being segregated or victimised for what they do to there children which is why it became so fanatical after the second world war
sorry but you was lied to

Well, first of all, loving someone is not smth you can force to happen, it just happens or it doesn't.
Thing is, that it seems as you were incapable of loving... and that's a problem that you should try solving out.
There's really no magical answer to it, but you should, at least imo, try being alone for a while. Getting to know yourself better, and focus on what you really need now. If you're not ready to commit, brad pitt could knock on your door and it just wouldn't work out, because you probably need time for yourself, with yourself, and by yourself.
It's an inner discovery experience...
And secondly, you could try therapy... sometimes it's not just for "crazy ppl", sometimes daily issues can be solved with a good guidance...
Hope everything goes ok for u!
The reasons for it are contirved by people trying to keep this practice going. In the US the medical community knows very little about the natural male genitals. As such they told parents to pull back yong boys foreskin and that caused many infections. Most of us that are natural have had zero problems and of course we have the full package and that is so much bettyer for sexx and for ones pleasure. The rest of the worls is 80% natural and has no infections problem.
The benefits include better orgasim control and timing and better sex for both partners. The foreskin is not just skin and does not just protect the glans(head). Circumcision is now known to ablate the most sensitive parts of the male genitals. This surgery takes away the main male pleasure zones with over 20000 fine touch and stretch nerve endings amputated. The foreskin has several parts including the ridged band that is great for ones pleasure (that is why nutters like Kellogg wanted to chop em off, to curtail masturbation), Masturbation is important for a mans physical and mental health. The ridged band directly contacts the vagina for very great pleasure all around. The dynamics of sex and the actual mechanism of the penis are drastically changed by circumcision. The foreskin can normally be slipped all the way, or almost all the way, back to the base of the penis, and also slipped forward beyond the glans. This wide range of motion is the mechanism by which the penis and the orgasmic triggers in the foreskin, frenulum, and glans are stimulated
The only touch organ possessing as rich erogenous innervation as the foreskin is the clitoris. Circumcision deprives man of 2/3ds of the main erogenous zone constituted of the foreskin and the glans.

What most people are against is parents forcing their children to circumcised. Everyone should be able to make that decision on their own, this is a cosmetic procedure, not medical. Circumcision rates have dropped from over 80% to nearly 50% since the 60s... clearing up misconceptions and stigma takes time.
The infections thing you heard about is actually a misconception stemming from improper care of a child's intact penis. As infants, the foreskin and glans are attached together, yet some parents and even doctors think they must pull back the foreskin to "clean" underneath, but they are actually just creating problems. These same people usually also think they must clean the area with soap all the time... which will cause even more problems. The child will start having redness, soreness, tightness, and eventually get an infection. To take this medical issue further, due to possible complications from the surgery (taking too much skin, skin reattaching to the head, meatal stenosis, excess bleeding, skin bridges, infections) any benefit you hear about, even if you only believe the "pro side", the possible benefits dont outweigh the possible complications. So there isn't an immediate health need.
There are actually many benefits when it comes to sexual activity for being intact. Some people worry about cleanliness, but it isn't hard to rinse during showers... and women are no better then intact guys. Here are some specific benefits:
1. during masturbation, the mobile skin makes it easier and more pleasurable, just move the skin instead of using lotion and your hand (which doesn't receive pleasure)
2. during sex, the extra mobility reduces rawing friction and need for lube making it more pleasurable. The foreskin also provides extra padding making the penis thicker and feels more organic.
3. during oral/handjobs, the guys partner just has to move the skin, not worry about how they are grasping it or if there is enough lube, etc
So not only is it beneficial to the guy, but also his partner... especially if the guy was circed tight. Although some may not realize it, you are better off being intact.

It is a myth that circumcision is a beneficial operation.
No medical association recommends routine infant circumcision anymore (even in the USA). Circumcised boys do not do better health wise than intact boys. A few studies show a mild difference in conditions which are rare and not serious; but if you add in the downsides it isn't worth it.
There are many reasons I can give you why circumcision is a bad choice.
Have a watch of this 20 minute video by the nocirc organisation. It is very informative:
In regards to care. Care is a lot easier with intact, non-circumcised boys as there is nothing to do. The foreskin is unretractable in infancy so it should be left alone. No cleaning under it or pulling it back is required. This medical page explains further:
Circumcised boys actually require a lot more care.
Firstly, all newly circumcised boys are in discomfort because there is an open wound. The wound is susceptible to infection. It can also become irritated by ammonia in the urine - which provides more discomfort for the baby.
One common problem is a skin-bridge. The skin left over after the foreskin is severed can re-attach to another part of the penis resulting in an adhesion (see link below for picturesof this and other complications). Very little of this is told to you. Do you really want all this hassle when there is no need for it?
(Look around the circumstitions site - it has a wealth of information.)
The psychological effects of circumcision are open to dispute, but I cannot imagine them being anything other than negative. It certainly won't help you bond with your child - especially in those crucial early months:
(Look around the cirp site- it has a wealth of information.)
The foreskin serves a sexual purpose. The negative sexual effects are rarely mentioned or worse, denied. Circumcision removes a functioning part of the penis. Many circumcised men do not even know what they have lost - especially in the USA where it can be a taboo topic - what with men having fragile egos and all.
As someone with a foreskin, I value it. It contains many specialized nerves on it's underside. When the foreskin is moved up and down it is very pleasurable and prompts the release of all sorts of feel-good hormones. Circumcised men cannot masturbate as easily as there is no gliding effect. If they try it without an artificial lubricant then it may chafe , become red and sore. I think this is terrible - to worsen the sexual lives of someone without their consent. This site shows the movement of the foreskin in masturbation (graphic). It also contains a 20 minute video on the function of the foreskin:
Without the foreskin protecting the glans, circumcised men lose further sensitivity. The glans (head of the penis) dries out. It also brushes on underwear which causes the skin to toughen -sort of like when you walk bear feet - the skin hardens. This page shows pictures (graphic):
There are good reasons to believe that sex is better for the woman as well, if the man has his foreskin intact: This site is an educational one on why it is better for both partners to be intact (graphic):
Men in Britain, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy, along with the rest of Europe don't get circumcised and they all do as good if not better than countries where circumcision is more common. So all in all it is best to be as nature intended. No medical association actually recommends non-therapeutic infant circumcision. Check out this site for frequently asked questions:
Here is some other information you might find useful:
History: Non-religious circumcision only started in English-speaking countries in the late 1800's. The main reason was to prevent masturbation. More info can be found at this at this site:
Rates of circumcision:
Circumcision rates have dropped in the USA to 60%.
In Canada and Australia the rate has dropped to less than 10%. In Britain the rate is less than 1%. Only 20-25% of the world are circumcised, 2/3 of these are Muslim.

Circumcised men can get infections... just like uncircumcised men. It's a common misconception that circumcision reduces a man's chances of getting an infection. This is tied with the falicy that circumcision is cleaner. Again not true. A foreskin takes 5 extra seconds to clean. It's not that big of a deal. Simple retracting, rinsing and relpacing of the foreskin in the shower every day and there is absolutly no difference health wise between a circumcised and uncircumcised penis.
I was circumcised as a baby aswell. My parents told me for the same reasons. However I grew up with two uncircumcised friends. None of them have ever had a single problem with their foreskin. As a kid I realised what a foreskin did and why it was there. Since I found out my foreskin was removed without my permission I have resented my parents for making the choice without my consent... since it is my body after all. Not theirs. Here is a list on why:
#1 It is an amputation of a normal, natural, healthy, and fully functioning body part without the owner of the body parts permission. It's one thing to do it as a medical treatment for a severe problem that can be fixed no other way. IT's another to take the body part while nothing is wrong with it. This is a violation of human rights.
#2 Circumcision removes 2/3 of the total penile nerve endings, it also removes all of the peinle fine touch neuroreceptors (which are nerve endings that are specificly sensitive to fine touch, the touch exsperienced durring sex). It also exsposes the head of the penis, which was meant to be an internal organ. This means the skin on the head was not meant to be exsposed to air and clothing. The head without the foreskin will dry out, toughen and build up several layers of skin that block sensitivity of the head. Circumcision takes away 50% of a mans sensitivity after the first 20 years, after that the sensitivity loss increases. This is because the more the head rubs, the more sensitivity that was lost. I know this is a fact because I have restored my foreskin. Since then my sensitivity has doubled and I can't even get back everything ever lost.
#3 The foreskin accounts for 90% of the penile function. Which means circumcison removed 90% of a penis's function. Which obviously isn't good.
#5 www.sexasnatureintendedit.com... Circumcision also effects sex not only from a mans point of view but from a woman's. The site will be able to exsplain that.
This is just a very TINY list of why the procedure is "bad". The procedure as a whole isn't bad, it just needs to be the choice of the individual.

The only people who have to worry about infection, circumcised or not, are those who have terrible personal hygiene. Uncircumcised men who shower regularly like normal guys don't have to worry about getting infections. Over 99% of uncircumcised men have never had any problems with their foreskin.
Circumcision is bad when it's done to someone else, such as parents getting their sons circumcised when they were babies. This is bad because no one has the right to make such a choice for someone else's body. No one has the right to cut off a healthy, functional part off of someone's genitals at a time when they're too young to consent to it! This is violation of a human's right to their whole body. You may be fine with the fact that you were circumcised, but there are many, many men who resent the fact that it was done to them and rightfully so. Hopefully if you have a son in the future you'll leave him the choice to make for his own body.
To know the benefits of being uncircumcised you'll have to learn a bit about the foreskin. It's extremely erogenous, much like a women's clitoris, and contains 20,000 nerve endings...more than the rest of the penis combined. The foreskin makes up the majority of the penile skin, and uncircumcised men don't need lubricants for sex/masturbation as they can glide the foreskin up and down the shaft, which adds to the pleasure...the foreskin also protects the glans of the penis, keeping it sensitive. Also, it's been scientifically proven that the five most sensitive parts of the penis are all located on the foreskin and all removed by circumcision. So when parents get their son circumcised, they're removing a large chunk of his sexual sensation.
Lastly circumcision can also cause a host of complications, and many circumcisions are "botched" circumcisions.
To sum it up circumcision is bad because it's unnecessary, harmful, pointless, unethical, etc etc.
I hope this answers your questions.

Circumcision is bad. The supposed 'benefits' of circumcision are all lies, spread by the pro-circumcision lobby.
There are many benefits to being intact, unmutilated and with a fully functional penis. I'm sitting here bemused because I'm finding it hard to understand how anyone could ask what the benefits of having a body part unmutilated are. I mean it's quite simple - an intact body part works properly, whereas a mutilated one does not.
An intact penis was developed through millions of years of evolution, taking its form and function as a result of natural selection. Circumcisioon was developed through religious ignorance and through the prejudice of a few sexually repressed 19th Century 'health activists'. The aim of these folks was to destroy feeling in the penis as a way to prevent masturbation.

There are plenty of things wrong with involuntary circumcision. It is forced on a non consenting child, and no pain reduction is used. There is incredible agony, and many children go into shock.
I was cut as a child, by a doctor who was a remnant of the John H. Kellogg era where the pain of circumcision was considered part of the treatment to stop masturbation. There was no pain reduction offered, and I remember the feel of the knife cutting through the living flesh. New born infants feel that also. Committing this on a new infant or a child is a crime against humanity,...unfortunately, it is hidden behind a socially acceptable clinical term....circumcision.
Uganda has just outlawed female circumcision. Female circumcision already enjoys the title of Female Genital Mutilation,...where is the equality, where the same protection would be offered to male children. In truth, it is Male Genital Mutilation
Circumcision is a cruel, brutal, destructive and unnecessary procedure. Instead of deciding to do it on a whim, the parents/medical profession should have to show good, sound medical need for it.
No child is born, needing to be circumcisied.
The religious circumcision procedure is just as brutal. If you feel religious circumcision is okay because it is a sign of a convenant with their god,...think of it. If you wanted to join a club, and they told you to be a full member, they would have to cut off useful parts from your gentials and those of your sons,....how fast would you tell them to go to hell? If their god wants a used foreskin back at the expense of mutilating a helpless infant/child, then perhaps it is time to look for a new god. Education works!!
Go to: www.norm.org and read about the reason and function of the foreskin. You will see how very fortunate are those who still have theirs, and how misguided are those who promote circumcision. While you are there, read the "Lost List" on the left column of tabs. You will see what you gave up (was hacked off your protesting body) to circumcision

Try not to be so hard on yourself. Sounds like the flu really kicked your butt, and you're not back up to your old self. Your thinking may not be so hot because you don't feel so hot. The economy is really rough right now, and it's putting a strain on a lot of people. Things cost more and more, but the paychecks stay the same. That is not your fault! Things definitely are slipping for everyone! I am seeing so many guys who are taking it personally, like they are a failure or something.
Can you look at what you do have? At your age, you're doing pretty well, having a house with your brother, a good job, your own vehicle, kind parents. If you are too proud to ask them for help, maybe you could ask them for a loan, and write it up on paper. At least you might ask for help to see a doctor and some gas. Part of your Scout promise is to take care of your physical health. So do that! You have a lot to offer, and your family knows that; that's how they brought you up. I'm sure they don't want to see you lose ground on what you have done so far.
If we are all going to make it through this slump, we have to lean on each other and not let pride isolate us. This "every man for himself" stuff is not going to work right now. Don't give up!
