I don't agree with this at all. You usually have some well thought out things to say, so don't take this as an attack but i disagree completely here. i can speak for myself, and im a pretty analytical person, from my experience it seems that a majority of the time, sex is probably 80% psychological and the rest being physical. sensitivity is (for me) not a problem, but then again maybe i am an exception to the rule?
but maybe i should put it this way since i am circumcised, that had i not been, i think walking around would be a problem. 8)
It seems that you've only experienced one side of the coin. So have I, but there are many studies and anecdotal reports that support the fact that foreskin is more than just about aesthetics. Though the studies do conflict as to whether or not sensitivity is increased or decreased, or as to whether or not the patient was satisfied with the outcome...
Quote:"Adult circumcision appears to result in worsened erectile function (p = 0.01), decreased penile sensitivity (p = 0.08), no change in sexual activity (p = 0.22) and improved satisfaction (p = 0.04). Of the men 50% reported benefits and 38% reported harm. Overall, 62% of men were satisfied with having been circumcised."
It seems that it's just kind of the luck of the draw...maybe some of these guys are getting better surgeons?
I am guess it was a cultural more having to do with 'uncleanness' written into the book by the authors of that time.
I thought there was some part of the bible where Jesus told a disciple or somebody that circumcision was no longer necessary
Surveys have shown most women who approve of circumcision do so for reasons such as they want the boy to look like their dad, or it looks better....these are hardly adequate reasons unless women want to have sex with their own sons.
I can't believe this is the conclusion you stopped on. you can't see the fact that perhaps if it were true that these mothers are wanting their sons to be circumcised, it would because of their own point of view? Think about it.
The mother preferred a circumcised penis over one that was not, then she would project that belief onto society thinking that a potential mate for her son would also be more accepting if the son were circumcised.
I highly doubt that the mother is motivated by wanting to have sex with her own son. I think someone has been reading too much Freud.

And don't call me darling or sweetie as if I'm your child. That's just creepy.
. i think the most absurd aspect to circumcision is the religious part of it. why would an all powerful being care about a meaningless piece of skin? it just sounds so pathetically petty and insignificant.
It's a way of distinguishing your tribe from the neighboring tribe.
Scarification, tattoos, secret handshakes, circumcision, silly haircuts: all designed to make you belong to a certain subset of humanity.
What if he wants it ALL OFF?
