I feel robbed
I am a 14 year old male and I am circumcised. I do not get any pleasure
from masturbating and it is very difficult to ejaculate. I feel robbed by
a system that cheats males out of having a whole, natural pens in the name
of religion. I love my parents, but I feel hatred to anyone who promotes
circumcision. I say to them, "go get the rest of your penis cut off if
you love it so much! Then try to masturbate!" Also, I am jealous of
anyone who is uncut and I want to know how it feels.

It is nearly impossible for me
to have an orgasm from
I was circumcised at birth in 1958. Turns out, my
father was intact until
he was in the US navy, where they basically forced him to be
in his early 20s. My brother and I were both cut based on his
I have several problems that are related to being
cut. While I can orgasm
from masturbation, it is nearly impossible for me to have an orgasm
intercourse, even after thrusting for a long time. The majority of the
time, I end up pulling out and finishing manually or my partner doing
for me. Oral sex, while certainly enjoyable, is worse. I can count on 2
hands the number of times I have come from oral, even after prolonged
stimulation. I also have a short penis, about 4 inches erect and I have
always wondered if that was due to my tight circumcision. I am
thinking about restoring my foreskin.
I am happy to say I have broken the cycle. When my
son was born, I refused
to let them circumcise him. He is now almost 17, and still intact. This
caused quite a problem with my father when I informed him. He insisted
have it done, but I was adamant.
all the great info.

The stupidest thing I have done
in my life
I had myself undergo circumcision because of the
peer pressure and teasing I received from college friends. Both from
guys and more importantly, from the girls.
Thinking backwards I believe it was the stupidest
thing I have done in my life.
A few years later, again I succumbed to the
demands of one of those girls,
my wife. (I do NOT blame her)
Both my sons were circumcised at birth.
I am not sure if I will ever forgive myself for

The only feeling I have is in
the little "leftovers"
Two weeks ago, I found out about the site on
circumcision, also about the
pictures of the scars and deformities that circumcision can bring
about. I'm very interested in this matter since I was circumcised
myself (quite carelessly, if I may say so) at the age of 4. This brutal
surgery has affected my
life in a negative way (and I express myself very carefully).
The diagnosis was phimosis and apparently the only
solution back then (1960) was circumcision. I don't know the exact
details, because it was not an item that was spoken of back then.
When I was young, no one talked about his or her
privates. It even became so that I had forgotten about the whole thing
and that, in my mind (when I was around 9 or 10), it was just the way I
was. To my knowing, my penis was as it always had been ever since birth
and there was nothing wrong with it.
You know every boy goes trough a period of great
friendship at the beginning of his puberty. That includes sexual games
like p.e. playing doctor and so on. Can you imagine my consternation
and the shock I experienced when I first saw a friend's one?? I came to
realise that I was totaly different in that place, that it was not at
all the way it supposed to be and that nobody had ever told me or
prepared me for that moment.
Later, when a friend learned me about
masturbation, I came to realise that I was completely different: okay,
it was a pleasant thing to do, but what the **** was all the fuzz
about? Later, a friend told me that even pulling his foreskin back was
giving him exitement and a good feeling...By then, I got the feeling
that that was stolen from me. And up until this day, I feel that way.
I have got quite a few scars on my penis myself. I
have been ashamed of it for years. Also, I have very little to no
feeling in my glans. In fact, the only feeling I have is in the little
“leftovers” of my foreskin. My glans has indeed become increasingly
drier and drier over the years. I've never been able to come by
intercause, I always need to stimulate myself because of the limited
feeling I have in my penis.
Further on, I’ve sensed jealousy towards uncut men
ever since I found out that ‘normal’ men are different.
Anyway, I have some
pictures [NSFW] of my penis and the scars and I was wondering
if maybe you would be interested to put one of them in the gallery of
circumcised penises. Maybe it can help parents and doctors to think
twice before they resort to such drastic mutilation. The way I see
things, every circumcision is one too many, except if there is really
no alternative, and if the pictures can help to decrease these barbaric
practices, you're welcome.
As someone on the site already said: if there is
only one boy (or man) this item
can save from being mutulated, then it is worth it.

I won't do it in a million years
Yoh yoh yoh!! Okay I always thought that I am not
going to circumcise for one reason; that is pleasure. My nephew 10 has
done it. I 20yrs won't do
it in a million years. Thanks keep me posted. Big upz to you.

far and away the most
Seems to me your site is by far and away the most
comprehensive and accurate on the subject of MGM. Although I only
discovered it a couple of years ago. (In my experience, Google's search
system leaves at lot to be desired) You must have put in hundreds, if
not thousands of hours into it. And I do
enjoy the logical interjections into the news stories.
A couple of months ago, I read a book "Wilful Blindness: how we ignore the obvious
at our peril" by Margaret Heffernan. Circumcision is not
mentioned but she gives many other examples of willful, illogical
blindness. Including how physicians for years, decades kept giving
pregnant women X-rays even though there was very, very clear evidence
it vastly increased the odds of that child dying of leukemia.
Keep up the good work in the New Year,

He DOES have a normal penis
Prior to my boyfriend, I had one experience with
an uncircumcised man. He was ashamed of his penis and he repeatedly
apologized for how he looked and we had one fling in the dark.
I´m currently in a loving, long-term relationship
with an uncircumcised man. Other than my one time fling, this is really
the first time I´ve been intimately involved with someone
uncircumcised. In the US at least, he´s a true rarity. When we first
got together, I remember thinking, "Geez, couldn´t I find someone with
a normal penis?"
Then it hit me. He DOES have a normal penis. His
penis looks how it´s meant to look like. His foreskin is supposed to be
there, like that bit of skin covering my clitoris is meant to be there.
His body is fully intact as it was meant to be.
Your website really opened my eyes. The
circumcision videos and pictures disturbed me, but showed me how so
many boys are needlessly mutilated. Males are born with foreskin and
they are supposed to have it. If I ever had a son, I don´t want him to

It has been a revelation
Hi! I found your site very informative and well
I had always thought circumcision was done for
cleanliness. I am American and had never seen anyone that hadn't had it
done until recently. I am the very satisfied partner of an intact
Englishman. It has been a revelation - being with an intact man has
been the most sexually satisfying experience of my life and honestly,
his intact penis is just beautiful. He told me it is very easy to keep
clean and there is no reason to cut any part of the foreskin off. I had
no idea before him. He has certainly opened my eyes.
Thanks again for your wonderful site.

It's much more about the journey
Hello, I've been against circumcision for years
and I've recently been reading up on it again since starting a
relationship with an intact guy. I am American and out of 19 partners,
he's only the 2nd intact one I've been with.
One thing I've noticed (and wanted to share with
your readers), especially with my current guy, is the difference in
outlook regarding sex. With cut guys it mostly seems to be about the
"end goal" and trying so hard to come; it's not necessarily that they
only care about their pleasure, but it's more about "let's have sex so
I can come." With my current guy, it's much more about the journey and
the complete experience of being intimate with each other. He also
seems to have much more control over his "point of no return" than
circumcised guys. We are able to have penetrative intercourse several
times during a "session" because he can go for a while and then back it
off so that we can play in other ways. It also feels better when he is
inside me; I don't lose lubrication and I don't feel like he is just
using his penis as a battering ram. Other types of sex are also more
pleasurable (for him) and pleasant (for me). And he is always clean! He
does have a smell, which is a normal pheromone smell that everyone has
and is actually more arousing to me than cut men.
One thing you may want to watch/share/include is this
video (or the information in it):

I believed that it was unethical
I've been meaning to write to you for some time
concerning your website circumstitions.com. I just wanted to
say well done and keep doing what you are doing!! I am
a rural GP in NSW (Australia) and it still irks to see mothers
and fathers asking for this barbaric procedure done to their
sons. And the reasoning is always idiotic (in my professional
I was never taught how to do
(neonatal) circumcisions whilst in training...never really wanted to
learn to be honest. In fact, in my final year of medical
school I flat-out refused to participate in unnecessary (non-medically
indicated) circumcisions; I would tell the surgeon(s) that I believed
that it was unethical to do the procedure. I always felt that
there was a lot of either indifference or outright apathy
in doctors when it came to this topic. So many
doctors I came across willingly or unwillingly accepted circumcisions
as the "norm" and did little to nothing about informing people
properly about circumcision.
