i personally think it would be really mean to not circumsize your son just for the simple fact of how embarrassing it would be for him. but im taking a human sexuality class right now, and today we were talking about the penis & we had to learn about uncircumsized penis's. My professor said that a few yrs back, it was thought that there were more dangers then not in circumsizsions but that recently the WHO has said that it is actually more dangerous to not circumsize. The extra skin increases your risk of STD's & AIDS, penial cancer, and UTI's. It also increases the risk of him giving his partners cervical cancer and anal cancers. It also can cause smegma if you dont know how to properly clean it, which is a cheesy like substance that forms under the foreskin which is bad for them. Just figured id let you all know because ive quite often seen moms on here saying they dont think its necessary to circumsize there sons! :)
I think its great that you are laying out all the facts for these moms so that they can make an educated decision. this is not what I would consider to be a judgemental question, but rather intended to inform. I made the educated decision to get my kids circumcised. Esp. cuz when they are in that in between age where they don't want momma to see them naked, but also couldn't care less if they wear the same underwear for a week, they wouldn't much be conscientious about cleaning their penis properly either.
