    Look just my experience, most women will agree dicks aren't the best looking thing in the world but they also would rather it not look like a flesh sock either. I think this is great that something that matters so little has gone on for 4 pages, lets go another 4 people!

    I'm so glad we have you John. We can save so much time and money because you can just speak for all the women of the world instead of actually asking individuals what their opinion is. Is there anything else you would like to say on behalf of all the women of the world?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    I worked with a guy for about 20 years. We often had closed door discussions on issues because we trusted each other. We shared personal stories etc. during that time. One day in the menís room, we were standing next to each other, he told me that he had been circumcised because heíd occasionally get an uncommon infection. He had a recurrence anyway. There followed a bit of discussion, I was curious because he had essentially run a test. Engineers, scientists etc. do this all the time. He had before and after data. It was equivalent to testing only one machine with a single modification rather that a larger sample; but it was before and after data of a single modification. He volunteered that for him it worked fine both ways. But, I wanted to know what Karen thought about his penis before and after, specifically how it worked when coupling. Nothing else had changed; what a great test of a foreskin. So I asked. Of course he had gotten the answer already. She missed the feeling from the foreskin and it was significant.

    What is interesting about your claims in this and other discussions is that a single sample of one condition proves to you the performance of that condition relative to the untested ones. And you accept this kind of false Ďdataí from others when it matches your beliefs. Iíve also found beliefs and tests w/o a control sample in engineering. The engineers make test errors believing they know the results of the test they didnít run.
    A frustrating story about this is that when I Google my name I find the results of belief driven testing that was done in my lab (I loaned lab space and gave advice) where the published results are false and Iím specifically thanked for supporting the testing. The testing was used to support the purchase of stuff that didnít work, and that would be used to do more invalid testing.

    you know.......that's only because what we are accustomed to seeing is bare. if circumcision weren't the norm, i doubt we would care.

    Why yes there is, "At your service ladies."

    Do you think I haven't overheard my wife and her friends talking from time to time? Something else I''ve learned from hearing them talk too, size doesn't matter. It's not the size of the bone, it's how well you bury it.

    3. High risk of changes or even dysfunction in sexual function (in fact, this is why we started doing it in the West - to try to stop boys from masturbating by make them less sensitive - it was NOT for hygiene reasons).
    4. No significant advantages (the hygiene thing is total bogus, most boys' foreskins work just fine or can be made to with minor stretching, the STD claims are wildly exaggerated).
    5. Removes as much as 80% of the nerve endings in the penis and finally...
    6. It is performed on a NON-CONSENTING individual, and it cannot be undone. Even if none of the above were true I would still be against it for this reason.

    Temporal is right; it's genital mutilation as much as FGM is. Why we still tolerate performing it on infants in this country is so beyond me.
    Again, freedom of religion.

The body is good at compensating to a degree, but that doesn't make it less true.

    You also have a really weird idea about how much "effort" having a foreskin is. Guess what: cut guys can have gross dicks just as easily as uncut guys, and it takes a fraction of a second to clean under the foreskin.

    Some women have to do the same thing, if they have a larger clitoral hood. Shall we cut it off?
    By him saying that he doesn't care that he is circumsized, he's consenting to it, therefore it was not non-consensual.
