I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but yeah Anyways a few days ago in my Psychology class we were talking about the pros and cons of circumcision for males. The discussion prompted me to do my own research since I pretty much didn't know anything about the procedure, let alone that it was the "norm". I had always thought that only Jews were circumcised. Boy was I wrong. To prove just how ignorant I was on the subject, along with many others, I didn't even know what an uncut penis looked like. I had always thought the penises I've seen in porn and in real life were an intact penis. Wrong again. I asked my husband if he was circumcised, and he told me no. Upon more research I discovered that yes, indeed he is, and he didn't even know! More research and I find out that this is the most sensitive part of the male penis, and is analogous to the female clitoris, and is vital to sex for not only the male, but the female. Without this foreskin there is a certain roughness that leaves me chaffed after sex, something I've always thought was how you're supposed to feel. I feel like I and everyone else has been lied to, has been punished so that over half of couples can't have the pleasurable sex they should be allowed to. I am baffled at this hideous crime that has been performed on almost 80% of men in America, and still over half even today. If we were all cutting off the clitoris and labia of our infant daughters there would be a huge uproar. But it seems little is being done and parents continue to be ignorant and cut off their son's precious genitals. As I continue to do more research I just find more and more upsetting information. I think the best evidence comes from men who decided to be circumcised later on in life, so can compare the two. All of these men wish they wouldn't have done the procedure to fit into our backwards "american ways" and compare the sex of the two to a nice milkshake vs skim milk. Why didn't I know about this sooner, why not everyone else? Why are we all being sexually punished?? I have been a complete mess these past few days. I can no longer look at my husband's dick and feel aroused knowing that it has been mutilated so as to not feel nearly as much pleasure as it should. Knowing that as he ages his penis will continue to lose sensitivity and there's a high chance that he'll get erectile dysfunction. He already has premature ejaculation, which I thought was just psychological for him but now realize it is due to his circumcision and that it will most likely never go away. I feel like my own genitals have been cut off, and that there is nothing I can do. I've tried talking to my husband about this, but he just gets angry and refuses to. I think part of this is due to his conscious protecting him from the horrible crime which has taken so much away from his sexual being. The sad part is that he will never know the difference. Just like so many other men and women. I feel helpless knowing that there isn't anything I can do to protect these children I should also note that medical benefits of this procedure have already been disproven, and that when properly washed (which any parent can teach their children) the foreskin actually protects the penis. You are born with it for a reason! Please don't do this to your children! I feel so upset and hurt, angry that my husband had to have this horrible procedure done to him because of ignorance. Angry that he doesn't want to acknowledge it. Angry that I will never know what sex with an intact penis feels like. I can only read what it feels like, and ladies it feels a lot better! I am both depressed and completely shaken up, knowing that I live in a world that allows this. Please, don't take my word and look this up if you don't already know. There are nonsurgical restoration methods, and from what I've heard these are hugely beneficial and will restore a lot of sensitivity to your penis. The penis is meant to be intact, just like the female genitals are. I'm sorry this is a bit of a rant, I'm just really upset and there is so much that I want to get out there so that this procedure won't have to be performed on non consenting individuals with perfectly healthy penises.
