    I am reviewing this rite of passage for a child, perhaps it is a first step amongst the living, but why do men do this?

    What are the feelings about being or not being circumcised?

    What would your choice be for yourself and your child?:popcorn:

    circumcision is entirely unnecessary. There are actually health complications that can come from it. Not only that, but it decreases sensitivity.

    the only reason the Jews did it was because it did help with hygiene in the days before regular showers were available. But today, you won't have any problems if you take showers.

    The US and South Korea are the only countries where circumcision is common. In the rest of the world, only certain religious groups (jews etc.) do this.

    there are 3 arbramaic religions - jewish, islam and some chrstians practice it. For some, it is an identification of belonging to a one of the sects.

    but if it wasnt a religious rite, would your opinion be different?

    why do you blame 'feminist', when feminists are oppose to female circumcision?

    I think there are equal concerns about hygiene in this day and age with the increase sexuality and decrease inhibitions.

    Would hygiene be a major consideration in the decision to circumcise or not holding religion as a non-factor? Do you think that circumcision would be considered a disfiguration of the body for the purpose of pleasure?

    To be clear, circumcision reduces pleasure.

    I do see it as a cultural practice of disfiguration. The foreskin wouldn't be there if it wasn't useful.

    Anyone who washes properly wont have a problem. Before daily showers were available, the practice was understandable, but not now. I can't think of any other hygienic reason.

    You're more likely to contract AIDS and other STD's if you're uncircumcised, that's fact.

    So when it comes to that, who cares about pure pleasure?

    Are you certain of this?

    Aside from loss of pleasure, complications can develop. And there is a larger issue - if you are circumcized as a baby, you have no choice. If you're uncircumsized, you do have a choice.
