: : I would just like to hear input from parents with boys on what helped you make the decision on whether or not to circumcise. Any input and stories to go along would be helpful. I have done quite a bit of research on my own... so I don't need any help on that part. Just opinions and input from parents themselves.
: I totally agree with Rowena and Kendra. We decided not to circumcise my son. My husband goes as far as to call it "a form of mutilation".
: I asked my husband about growing up without being circumsised and he said that he was never teased about it and that the majority of boys he knew growing up were not circumcised, except for the Jewish boys(and he went to an all boys school)
: I also agree with Rowena on the cleanliness issue, if you teach your son to wash properly and be clean then there should not be any problems.
: Also, one more thing, my husband says, and this is from his own personal experience and is his opinion, that men who are not circumsised are more sensitive in that area and feel greater pleasure during intercourse.
