    Not every religious act should be protected. Second, it is harmful, as it causes nerve damage over time.

    Re: Should male circumcision be banned?

    Why do people think its barbaric? Look man I like the fact that its easier to keep my pecker cleaner, I think about the only drawback to being circumsized is in the winter I could use a little chapstick....barbaric lol.

    Also about this nerve damage **** what are you talking about? I'm 25 and I still pop a random chub like a 12 year old boy. **** I wish I had some nerve damage maybe it would counter balance some of the boner flexing.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Both of my brothers are circumcised. Neither has any remembrance of it. My sister is a doctor and says that there is no viable medical/physical/psychological reason to ban male circumcision.

    Of course not, but they're not sacrificing goats or virgins.

    Based on a couple replies I can only assume my link was missed by a few. Seems to me a very important study.

    Circumcision ring cuts AIDS risk in Africa

    The most powerful force against AIDS in Africa may be circumcision, a procedure that's easily done in the developed world. But it's a challenge on a continent where there are too few medical workers and a reluctance by men for cultural reasons and fear of pain.

    Completely dismisses the belief that there are no sanitary applications for circumcision. BTW, masturbation still works with circumcision also.

    circumcision > abstention?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No it doesn't. My sex life with my wife happens to be quite healthy.

    You probably just aren't aware of it. Rubbing will cause sensation at the head of the penis to decrease as time goes on.
