    oooh pffffffffft... teach ya damned children to pull back there damned forskin and wash under it properly every time they shower, teach'em to wear a freakin rubber when having sexual intercourse with people.. make sure they know that unprotected sex is OKAY ONLY when you are in a relationship with a person who is trust worthy and dedicated to the relationship

    and then

    Teach ya damned kids that "I love you" means "I trust you and wanna have unprotected sex because it feels better but I'm going to totally go fuck some mangy munt the second I have the chance" that you actually need to establish trust by developing a relationship thats over three damned weeks old ya know... a year or more preferably!!!

    The popular media is illiterate. Somehow a disagreement among scientists just blows their little minds.

    yeah, just wrap it up, cut or uncut. personally, i think circumcision should be a choice for an adult to make. or at least a teenager. this coming from a jew, mind you. a bad jew, but a jew nonetheless.

    southbeach1500 saidOh come on, cutting off most of the cock's erogenous tissue doesn't have any impact on sexual pleasure that a cut cock provides it's owner.

    All the cut American guys are very satisified with the level of erotic stimulation their cut cock provides to them, PLUS they don't have to worry about all those horrible smells, bacteria and general filthiness that one observes on an uncut cock.

    And guys with cut cocks last longer during sex, so sex is much better for cut guys than for uncut guys.

    I tend to defer to Nature & Evolution. Men were given foreskins, so I find it arrogant to second-guess millions of years of natural selection. Foreskins are a result of function, not fashion nor fleeting fad.

    If we fail to recognize the reason for our foreskins, I think the problem is with us, and not with our prepuces. Have we become a race of neurotic hypochondriacs? When we try to outthink our own bodies, we merely outwit ourselves. Far better to accept the wisdom of eons of evolution, than to reinvent the human race according to momentary theories.

    Genital mutilation is a dying thing in my country Oz. It's used to be like ordering your meals in hospital. Leave with child's genitals mutilated, tick yes. They stoped this practic over 20 years ago, down here, and it was manly new Australians they got to keep their foreskin back then. So the majority of Aussie men have been inflected with genital mutilation.

    Same ole' mumbo jumbo from the crowd that's against it. More science coming in all the time for it.

    Like any false belief system, even if you present a mountain of science against it, the religious nuts / zealots / idiots / false believers will support their side devoid of rationale. Such is the human condition.

    I read an article earlier this morning (while sick with a nasty cold) about how they think the reason that STDs are higher in uncircumcised folks is that they harbor bacteria under the skin that is non-areobic that general cleaning doesn't contain enough. That makes good sense to me, and no amount of cleaning would likely fix that. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16184582/

    "The studies found that the circumcised men in the Kenyan study were 48 percent less likely to get infected and 53 percent less likely in the Ugandan study." Note that one of the big difference is that the circumcised folks were MUCH less likely to be carrier of disease which makes the real numbers even bigger in terms of health care management. Numbers like 53% can't be ignored in any rationale discussion on the topic.

    Strictly from a cleanliness point of view, I think it's a good idea. We have our wisdom teeth removed, as well, and, of course, we don't have folks screaming about that. Arguably, having our wisdom teeth yanked is almost always a good idea in our modern times. Probably the same could be said to be true with preventative maintenance on other parts of our body. Folks have it done with tonsils, appendices, and so on. Sometimes, we improve upon ourselves. If we can lower our incidence of disease, and, protect others from disease by taking that action, it's clearly the right and proper thing to do. We have to move away from I,I,I,me,me,me attitudes that so many folks have taken up and think of the bigger picture.

    Each to his own.
