  1. Chose myself to have it done at 25. I had really bad phimosis, so it was either get circumcised or potentially risk tearing my foreskin a second time during intercourse. I don’t regret it. It’s less sensitive but also not painful anymore.

  2. Meh, I dont feel much one way or the other. I’m circumcised, and I think it looks fantastic. I’ve seen uncircumcised and I think that looks pretty great to. So I dont feel much one way or another about my parents choosing for me. Though I hear uncircumcised penises are more sensitive, so I’m curious about how it feels, not that I’ll ever be able to know.

  3. I’m circumcised, don’t give a shit about it. Don’t blame my parents because it was the societal norm where they grew up and I doubt had any opinions offered to them to argue otherwise.

    If have a son, he won’t be circumcised.

  4. I guess my parents followed the same principles than I try to follow with my body :

    If it ain’t broken, don’t try to fix it.

    I’m uncircumcised, and I won’t advise for circumcision unless it’s necessary (some people can’t retract their foreskin, which can cause problems for mating, and that’s one of the only valid reason to get it cut from my POV)

  5. Circumcised when I was born. I think it looks better than if it wasn’t circumcised but I don’t understand the need to do it in the first place. If I had a choice I wouldn’t be circumcised because that’s my natural body.

  6. I was uncircumcised until two years ago. I would say that there are pros and cons to both in my case:

    I had a tight foreskin that made me hypersensitive so pulling back was very painful to do. I will admit, having a foreskin was HOT, the sliding motion and the head peaking out.

    But now my sensitivity has gone down to normal, I don’t have to worry about cleaning and overall I feel better sexually and physically🙂

  7. I’m a mom, and I never made that choice. I figured its his willy and he could later if he wanted to. Sounds like I made the right choice… (quietly exits the conversation)

  8. Erm. It was my choice. As an adult.

    It was necessary for me due to the pain that I didn’t want to live with.

    I’m happy with it. It’s better for hygiene and is less sensitive now.

  9. I am uncut and I am happy with my parents choice. Yeah it was a little different from everyone else but it’s down there for me. I think it adds a bit of intrigue for partners and just has become my norm. I think both sides of the debate make a huge deal out of it.

  10. I don’t think anyone other than the owner of the genitals should have any say in what happens to them, whether parent or otherwise. That’s not okay.

    The exception to this would be if there is a medical reason for it to be performed, in which case the parent needs to do what is right for their child’s health.

  11. Apparently I was about to be snipped but then my parents heard it happen to the baby in the next room, and that scream changed their minds.

    Circumcision for non-medical reasons is genital mutilation.

  12. I was circumcised as a baby. Been that way the entire time I’ve been aware of existence. All the men in my family are cut. Not worried about it. At all. 😁

  13. I cannot understand the decision. Not being a believer, I don’t get the religion and the hygiene side it is like cutting off my kids had so I don’t have to trim his nails.

  14. I’m a type 1 diabetic, and after I got a UTI at age 4 my parents decided to side with my pediatrician and get me cut.

    Imagine being a 4yo boy quite cognizant of pain and sitting while your dad’s on the phone with the doctor as they guide him through removing blood and plasma-caked gauze from his tiny junk.

  15. I’m circumcised, my adopted brother wasn’t until he broke his dick with his ex, after hearing his story and reading about all the various torn banjo strings and the various beatings i’ve put my dick through I’m glad im cut.

  16. Uncut here, I’m surprised how many women expect all men (at least of a certain age range) to be circumcised by default and also how many of them think uncircumcised penises are gross.

  17. Uncircumcised. There was a time in my life where I wanted to be cut because I was too sensitive and didn’t always last as long as I wanted to in bed. Now I’m a little older and have more experience and have things figured out better and I like it. It’s anecdotal but I’ve had women tell me it feels different then a circumcised dick in a very good way.

  18. I have been complemented thoroughly on my Penis shockingly often by sexual partners.

    Not for size

    Not good use

    But for it being a “really pretty penis”

    And that makes me pretty ok with the fact that I had my foreskin removed.

    🙂
