I always felt weird about this subject. I thought and still think it is an unnecessary procedure that can effect healthy baby boys later in life. A lot of people said it helps with hygiene and all that but if a woman can keep herself clean, there is no dang excuse for a guy. There have been studies done that are now linking circumcision to one of the main causes of Erectile Dysfunction in men 40 and older. Basically, you have this done and you have a 4.5 times greater chance of it later in life. You are also more likely to catch a surface STD. And it is worth mentioning that studies are being done linking the procedure to autism in boys. Boys have a 1 in 52 chance where girls have a 1 in 252 chance of autism. Also I may as well throw in that men who are not circumcised experience sex differently because the nerve ending of the head of the penis is more sensitive. When you get circumscribed, this nerve ending is damaged or destroyed entirely. On the other hand, doctors are saying your prostate cancer risk is lowered by up to 14% if you are circumcised as a baby. You are less likely to suffer from a UTI, your chances of actual penile cancer are reduced, and some STD's have a harder time being contracted. It is also easier to get a woman pregnant (some studies suggested). I didn't feel like leaving source links for everything but if you need one, I will pull some up. Anyways, discuss your thoughts on it and if you would do it to your son (if you had/have one).
