I will often hear women say that men do not complain about being circumcised. While it is difficult to accept that their parents did something to harm them, and that their sex life has been compromised, many men are now speaking out against what was done to them as a baby. Read some of their stories here.
In addition, you may wish to consider the following:
- in countries where circumcision is more common less than 1/1000 men who were not circumcised as infants decide to have it done as an adult. In countries that respect the genital integrity of their baby boys, the rate is around 1/16000. That means that in Australia there is at least a 999/1000 chance that your son will be happy with keeping all of his genitals. And if he happens to be the 1 in 1000 that decides or needs to have it done he can decide to do it. If he is circumcised and not happy about it there is nothing he can do to completely get it back.
- It is estimated that around 200,000 men world wide are currently undertaking non-surgical foreskin restoration. It does not regrow all of the complex structures lost to circumcision but does give some of the feeling of having a foreskin. Read some of their heartwrenching stories at Restoring Foreskin.org.
