Freedom is Important because People are Important


Hello,

Everyone is entitled to personal taste, though I find it unfortunate that a man would have to have surgery in order for his member to be deemed attractive.

I do not think, if the same standard was applied in reverse, it would be considered a good thing.

You don't have to die for something to be harmful. There can be pretty horrible complications to male circumcision (the correct term for the procedure on females is quite rightfully 'mutilation') resulting in loss of entire parts of the penis, which is not lethal but horrific for the person concerned. Though, admittedly, such cases are rare. Luckily.

I have no problem with the ruling. I understand why it upsets those whose religions traditions are affected but I cannot find it in myself to place their feelings above principles of physical integrity.

As for personal taste... well, to each their own.

Hey Wish,

I've always said, that aside from the muscles and hair, the most unattractive attribute a man has is his nether-regions. In high school, we had a middle eastern kid Omar that didn't have a circumcision and everyone called him "anteater".....

Sure, it looks totally f'd up... but at the same time I hear that 90% of sexual stimulus of the male organ was from being un-cut....

If that's true, just for the sake of "making the Johnson pretty" we have the same sexual release as a garden gnome comared to women without it.


Don't blame me for being born with my "G-spot" outside of my insides, and then having it gutted from me 8 years before my first erection because "somebody" say's it's cool.....

Imagine the furor against the same practice to go against women and remove their "g-spot", on their insides, in the same way.....





Actually... it's the perfect analogy for Government control today....

Anyone broken is worthless

Just break part of them enough and make them beg for more....

Every circumcised man grows up realizing a different sexual world than they might have otherwise....

In our atheist based world we live in, many times this decision is made without church and could be viewed as nothing more than having a PIG spayed.....




IF THERE IS NO RELIGION INVOLVED, WHY IS THE G-SPOT OF THE MALE REMOVED WITHOUT HIS CONSENT YEARS BEFORE HE CAN MAKE THAT DECISION FOR HIMSELF??????

I doubt that the foreskin provides a whopping 90% of all potential stimulation. That seems extreme. Not that I agree with removing any portion of potential fun from a defenseless infant or child.


That said: In terms of equivalence, forget about the g-spot. Think clitoris. That's where the fun for women is easiest and most available and, would you look at that, it's also on the outside. The most brutal form of FGM is pretty much the equivalent of cutting off the entire head of the penis, or the entire penis, let alone the foreskin. Because it removes all outside bits. Whatever furor there is to be had, you don't need to imagine it. It's actually real.

But that's not this argument. The two procedures exist on different spheres of wrongness and it's not a competition.

There is ZERO comparison here AR....

The only reason why "white" girls today don't do the same is that penises look "prettier" cut.....

But as to your "whatever" attitude about males being stripped of a majority of their sexuality at birth and nobody standing up for them but "6ix"......

Uh, did you READ my earlier post??

Where did I say that I approve of circumcision? That I have any opinion whatsoever on penis aesthetics? That I find any amount of pleasure reduction acceptable? I said THE OPPOSITE.

Seriously, READ before you reply.



(Incidentally, yeah, I would be up in arms about FGM. I AM. Because it really happens. And yes, there IS no comparing it with routine male circumcision. So stop talking about it as something hypothetical. It actually happens.)

I don't argue that circumcision reduces sensation. I find the 90% claim highly exaggerated, but AGAIN, I state that it's not relevant to the argument. It's just probably inaccurate.

Also, what does "white" have to do with it?

No complications. It was a decision my wife and I made after talking with our pediatrician and looking at a bunch of studies. There are a wide range of potential medical benefits from circumcision.

A big factor was our pediatrician telling us that in all her years of practice the only problems with penises she had seen were in uncircumcised boys.

Nah, it's not based on principle. There are physical forms I find unsightly, and there is certainly a wide spectrum between devastatingly beautiful and merely okay, though I am much more particular about faces than I am about bodies. I just honestly don't consider human dangly bits to be revolting. :)

That's interesting! What were the potential complications of not circumcising? And thank you for sharing, btw.

The most quoted is a decrease chance of urinary track infection. This risk is small, but the studies do show a decrease in circumcised infants.

Phimosis, which is a tightening of foreskin, can occur. It can be treated in different ways including circumcision later on, but it is painful. While many reported cases of phimosis maybe misdiagnosed it is still a problem seen in a small number of young boys.

Cancer of the penis, while rare is almost never seen in circumcised males. Studies do suggest that proper hygiene may play a role in reducing the risk of penile cancer, the issue is this cancer is typically aggressive and often results in the loss of the penis.

Than you have recent studies that show circumcised males are slightly less likely to contract HIV and other STDs. In fact the World Health Organization is recommending circumcision in Africa to combat the HIV problem.

Some studies have also indicated that women whose sexual partners are circumcised have a lower risk of cervical cancer. These are less than stellar studies, but do add something to think about.

How much benefit a person gets is still up to debate. I personally think the benefits slightly outweigh the risks overall, more so when you have a good doctor performing the circumcision.

That being said, I understand why some parents don't want to have it done, and I'm cool with that as well. I'm not an advocate for circumcision, just that parents should have the choice.

Hey, Ive been in a firefight before! Well, I was in a fire. Actually, I was fired from a fry-cook opportunity.


My understanding of making such a decision is similar to M52NICKERSON's. No real overwhelming proof of one side over the other, and really, its a personal decision - or should be.

As for the less sensitivity during sex - I am reminded of the man who stated "I just had the worst sex I ever had in my life" and his friend asked, "So how was it?", to which the man replied, "Fantastic!".
I really wonder how one can enjoy sex more than another because of a piece of skin or how that decision is made. On second thought, in all that is holy, please do not tell me about how that decision is made - I really do not want to know.

As for the court decision - I guess senile old men wearing dresses and making idiotic decisions isn't exclusive to North American Supreme Courts.
"The fundamental right of the child to bodily integrity outweighed the fundamental rights of the parents"
"This change (of body integrity) contravenes the interests of the child to decide later on his religious beliefs."

Say what?

So now the state is in charge of making any and all such decisions until the child becomes of legal age? Good grief. I suppose they expect a child who wants this done to practice their religious freedom will now have to make an application to the court or will the child have to wait til they are "legal" adult age? Must be awful slow in the German Courts.
Of course, how many Doctors will be willing to do this on an adult?

The only thing that could come close to deciding the matter is the observations of men who have experienced life both ways. But even that is a bit of a judgement call, since the man's experience may be colored by his opinion of how he looks. I admit, I'm thinking of a certain episode of Sex and the City in which a man gets The Cut so he'll look prettier, then dumps his girlfriend so he can go show off his new look. That's probably not very realistic.

I don't disagree with Germany's decision though. I don't think anyone's body should be altered without them having a say. Permanently altering a boy's privates when he's helpless has always seemed wrong to me, though I can see where the reported health benefits could sway a parent.

Hmm. I have no penis, so I can't really know. But the scientist in me says we can't really know unless we get the input of individuals who have experienced sex (and other things, like hygiene) with and without a foreskin. Otherwise, this 10% versus 90% stuff is pure nonsense.

We can get the input from those people, with the understanding that their experience is still going to be different from that of a man who was circumcised as an infant. You have to remember children heal much faster and better than adults. I also believe that keratinization of the gland in infants is a bit different than that of adults.

Now there have been studies that have shown that intact men do have more sensitive penises than circumcised men. Even with that more sensation does not equal more please. There are plenty of women who can't stand direct stimulation of the clitoris. Some men do not like direct stimulation of the gland.

That's the idea I have, picked up by little bits and pieces of info over the years. Uncut seems to be more sensitive, but not to the extent the cut means numb. Far from it, in my experience.

It would be informative to have some kind of direct comparison, even as limited as that must be. Some men out there must have something to say.

Anyway, cut men are hardly swearing off sex. It doesn't seem that they've lost so very much.

Freedom is Important because People are Important


Hello,

Sex is mostly between the ears.

I am cut, my son is not. There didn't seem to be any compelling reason beyond custom to have the procedure.

I'm kind of glad I didn't do it. It can be up to him, and there are indeed doctors who will do the job on adults who request it.

Really, though, I can't imagine a person of value who would leave a lover because of such a detail. And if they would put the breaks on intimacy because of it, it's probably for the best that such a pair never had intercourse anyway.

Sex is pretty important to most relationships, I hear. And I don't think a person should be deemed "valueless" for things they find attractive or not. I don't think a lot of that is up to us. Some people have balloon sexual fetishes, or foot fetishes...I don't get either one, and I may find them odd, but I don't BLAME them for what they like as long as they ain't hurting other people...

Hello,

Sex is pretty important to most people involved in sexual relationships. So I wonder what value you think should be held for such a person in that context?

Try to imagine falling in love with someone and getting intimate only to be shut down and told your vagina is too unattractive for copulation. How much value would you place on this person in the context of your relationship? Would you still value them as a romantic partner?

I also find it rather shallow to be attracted to someone, connect with them enough to have sex, then find the shape of their genitals offputting for some superficial aesthetic and then reject the person. I don't even think I'd want to be friends with such an individual, so I can't imagine any interpersonal value I'd assign to them. I rather think I'd be awfully emotionally hurt.

I think parents should choose which ever they want. I'm not opposed to circumsision, the guys who don't have their forskin still dig sexin' so I doubt that the loss is felt too keenly, they still have buckets o fun.

My little brother, adopted, wasn't circumsized, but when he came to live with us we had to have it done, he was newly 4 at the time, he was constantly getting infected etc. But my little nephews aren't circumsized and they haven't had any trouble so far. If I had a boychild (by accident since I'm not having babies) I would probably get it done for convenience sake in hygeine, but if people could be convincing enough I might not. I think its about 50 50 these days on it, possibly even more boys not having it done now.

For once Riona has hit the nail on the head, it's not completely about aesthetics, for me, I've always equated uncircumsized to "Harboring Bacteria." Especially because I'm sensative. And then there's the whole "Sex with that alien thing below yer waist? I don't think so" I don't think it is something I COULD get past, since a relationship would mean I would be fighting down my repulsion regularly. Fortunately, that never came up. For what it's worth, If I felt a relationship was important enough, I would consider body modification. You still rot the same way when yer dead, so I don't much care what I do to it now...


Oh, and it is ALWAYS a good idea to discuss such things BEFORE intimacy, along with "Are all your organs what you dress like, and do you have any extra bits I should know about??? Interestingly enough, multiple penises (penii??)on one person sound fun, just as long as they are all pretty
Heh heh heh.

A Wish a chara,
I think we agree on things more often than either of us would like to admit. :)))

Anthony, I guess its all okay because Wish's husband is circumsized, and that's the only person's anatomy that really matters to her I'd reckon. So its all okay. But yeah, I think people would talk about it before they got ready to have sex?

Don't think they miss that piece of skin one bit...



Circumcision is not usually practiced here anymore, unless you are Jewish. So most males under 30 would still have their foreskin, whereas older males do not.

If it is not necessary, then why do it? Really the medical arguments do not hold up, you just have to learn basic hygiene. This about tradition and expectations about appearance, and the same discussions are had re female circumcision, but do not hold up to logic either.

I'm with Anthony on this one. I think that would be a really gross conversation and I would run a mile if someone asked me intimate details like these before I was intimate with them.

I have had partners who have both scenarios, so it clearly is not on my list of important priorities.

I agree that it should be a personal decision. But I think it's fair that the courts decided that the person in question is the child, not the parents.

Quote:



As for the court decision - I guess senile old men wearing dresses and making idiotic decisions isn't exclusive to North American Supreme Courts.
"The fundamental right of the child to bodily integrity outweighed the fundamental rights of the parents"
"This change (of body integrity) contravenes the interests of the child to decide later on his religious beliefs."

Say what?

So now the state is in charge of making any and all such decisions until the child becomes of legal age? Good grief. I suppose they expect a child who wants this done to practice their religious freedom will now have to make an application to the court or will the child have to wait til they are "legal" adult age? Must be awful slow in the German Courts.
Of course, how many Doctors will be willing to do this on an adult?



How does placing priority on the child's physical integrity equal all decision-making being taken away from the parents? It's one very specific decision that is affected. Because it causes an irreversibel change in the child's body. An infant or toddler cannot voice any kind of reasoned input in this decision. An older child or teenager can. That's the important part. It's not about restricting the rights of parents but elevating the rights of children.

And there are plenty of doctors willing to do the procedure on an adult. It's a routine procedure and with an adult there is zero legal ambiguity.

I think it's immoral whether it's done to men or women. Religious people can go right on doing it if they want, and I can go right on thinking it's barbaric.

That said, I'm out of here before my "blarg what did I just read" reaction sets in.

I guess I should specify that I'm never okay with doing it to females because the express purpose is to make sex no fun for them, which is mean. But men who are circumsized still have rutting fun so I don't see it as a problem for them. BTW I don't reckon you'd find too many adults who volentarily go in to have it done, the point of getting it done when you're young is that it doesn't hurt as bad, you won't remember it anyway and your body will adapt normally, whereas when you have it done as an adult it might indeed decrease your pleasure enough to matter.

But even if circumsized men still have enough fun, how is it fair to make that choice for a kid? Why do parents get to decide how much pleasure decrease is okay?

There are studies that show that women who have had even the severest form of FGM done to them can still orgasm (though it's obviously much harder to achieve, methinks, and possibly rare) so medical complications aside, this makes it a matter of degrees of pleasure that are permitted to be taken away.

The ease with which this aspect of the subject is dismissed makes me a little uncomfortable. Sexual pleasure may be easier for men, but that doesn't mean involuntary reduction of it is not a form of violation. Even if the kid never knows the difference. If they did, as you say, they might reasonably not choose the procedure.

I would like to point out that "you won't remember this anyway" is not the best justification for non-consensual surgery ever.

Reminds me of a I think Drew Carrey skit?? They said "Sex is kinda like Battlebots..."
"You mean I just flip her over and bang her until her bits fly off?"
"Yep, just like that"
