Do you or will you have your son circumcised? Please vote and give an explanation for your choice.  I circumcised my ds and am pregnant with another boy who will be also. I dont believe it is mutilation at all. IMO they are cleaner that way, less infection.

Quoting littlest.angel:

Just out of complete curiosity, where do you live?

Quoting Misery_Stitches:

DS is intact (as are all my friends, all ex boyfriends, family [nephews, brothers, dad, uncles etc] and majority of random strangers I walk past in the street).

SO and one little boy are the only people I know who are circed. SO due to hypospadias (penis deformity) and the other kid I dont know why - but it was fucked up.

We chose not to do it because I couldn't really find any medical validity to doing it. DH is uncirced and doesn't have any issues with infections. Also I feel that since DH is also uncirced he will be able to teach our son all about proper hygiene in that area.


Come check out my blog. I promise you'll have fun...

Absolutely not. There was no reason to cut my boys. They are perfect.

We will not circumcise our son if we have one. We don't want him to be the odd one out compared to his peers world wide. Besides, everyone knows the Europeans have amazing sex and they don't circ:)

I have 2 girls and am due in july with a boy. I will not be getting him circ'd. I can't justify putting my newborn through a painful, elective surgery that has risks for solely cosmetic reasons. If he were to need it for medical reasons we would, but barring that he will be left intact.

Me too. My two oldest are snipped my youngest isn't.

Quoting mommythree0508:

My son is circumcised. I left this decision to my husband as he knows more about having a penis than I so.
