    The scar you're talking about is the "line" where the foreskin was cut. Not everyone has a noticable one -- it tends to be more prominent in men who have darker skin on their shaft and lighter skin under their foreskin. Depending on your aesthetic preference, and your own colouring, this may be less attractive to you than having foreskin.

    Doesn't function as well though. If I were you, I would think again icon_idea.gif

    I advise against circumcision. You will lose sensitivity in your glans, and I frankly have to wonder if our human cultural values are wiser than the millions of years of physical evolution that have made us the way we are?

    Most medical problems with the foreskin occur in childhood. As an adult, you are past that, if you perform simple personal hygiene. There are inconclusive studies in Third-World countries that suggest that uncut men have a greater risk of contracting HIV, but if you practice safe sex, and use a condom, it's a moot point.

    Here in the US some gay men do avoid the uncut, but many of us do not, in fact treasuring them. Have you read my thread about docking? icon_wink.gif

    It would be nice to keep this to the OP's original question and not have this bumped to the top constantly in another cut vs uncut thread...

    to simply answer your question, it's the 'dark ring' around the shaft

    I don't see a scar...
    That V thing just looks like it's part of the shape of my penis.

    ...

    I was cut at birth.
    I grew up thinking most guys were.

    Well, that could happen but then this thread is over if that's the case. Explanation provided, case closed!

    I was cut at birth (or shortly thereafter) and there is a distinct line that is somewhat darker than the skin below it.

    Don't do it! I got cut when I was 10 and I am not happy with...
    Even if all other guys around you are cut it is not worth to give away the most sensetive part of your body! Even if it is tight, there are ways to make it better!

    circumcision scars can be numerous. the darker ring is commonly referred to as one, however, there is actually a difference between the lighter skin of the foreskin, and the skin of the penile shaft. the lighter skin secretes oils which act as a moisturizing lubricant to the glans penis,helping to maintain it's sensitivity, and when combined with the sloughing of dead skin cells, is the major component of 'smegma. If you notice the dick head on a cut man, the glans is not shiny, slick, or as smooth. This is because the cut dick, in essence, has a 'calloused' glans penis, & therefore, is much less sensitive.(Just one of the major drawbacks of circumcision),
    Other circumcision scars can refer to differences in skin pigmentation and actual true scarring which can occur during a botched circumcision. (Which happens more often than what one may commonly think!)icon_eek.gif
    Sometimes this can happen on the shaft, OR the dick head, and produce scar lines, differences in dick head shape, shaft contouring, etc..
    Dispite my arguments against it, my son was circumcised, and ended up with a botched circumcision,where his shaft skin grafted to the head of his dick. --MOST unpleasant,icon_evil.gif which would have left him with a deformed member, had I not insisted we go back a couple of years later and have it repaired.
    It's worth doing your research if youre considering the proceedure, especially considering your age.

    I tend to keep kosher, myself, but that's merely a preference. In reality, it's what God gave you, so keep it in place.

    my father and I had an intense ...discussion...about body piercing quite a few years ago. he described my ear lobe piercings as "self mutilation". (good thing he didn't know what else was pierced icon_wink.gif )

    i calmly replied that any piercings i had would close up eventually when removed and were much less worse than the mutilation he had given his permission to be done to me shortly after birth, without my consent.

    he looked puzzled, until i hissed out "circumcision, dad!"

    he turned BEET red and mumbled something about "your mother's idea" and hurried out of the room. icon_redface.gif

    the topic of "self mutilation" was NEVER brought up again.


    owen, i'll go on record as saying i find an un-circumsized penis EXTREMELY erotic and sexy. as do many, many circumsized guys out there.

    PLEASE think long and hard (no pun intended) about this irreversible action.

    i wish mine was the way it was at birth. icon_cry.gif

    The OP contained: "...but lately i am thinking that i might get circumcised..."

    That opens the discussion to the pros & cons of circumcision itself. And as for the narrow topic of scars, I knew one teenage boy when I was young whose circumcision went badly, and his dick looked awful. It caused him a lot of embarrassment & distress, a straight guy who didn't want to show the mutilation to any girls. Now am I talking scars? Mental & physical?

    I have been cut since birth and have never been with a guy who is uncut. i think it shouldn't matter. i would love to be with a guy who is uncut but there something sexy about it if it is done right.

    Owen,
    Don't get cut - you eventually end up losing sensitivity and your glans dries out. Uncut is way better.

    I had a circumcision two years ago. There's barely any difference in sensitivity, and the scar is pretty much gone now. It was very noticeable for the first six months or so, but after that it faded to the point where you have to look hard for it.

    All in all, there isn't much difference between being uncut or cut. I had mine done because, aesthetically, I like the look better. Don't let the haters get you down, and go for it if you want to icon_smile.gif

    But don't expect your junk to look pretty for a few weeks.

    Like I said, two years later, not six months.

    And my glands are plenty moist.
