    Honey-go talk to your parents or an aunt or an uncle or some trusted adult. It's okay--don't let these losers on here make you feel bad about not knowing. Don't be embarassed.

    Circumcision is removing the foreskin of the penis -- which is not extra skin it is an organ of the body that serves a purpose!

    You really dont know, OK baby boys are born with a extra amount of skin around the head of the penis, for hundred of years this has been removed due to being clean. sometimes bactiria can live up there if it is not cleaned right. but now baby boys are circumcised which mean they removed that extra skin ether right after birth or a week or so after for ether religious reasons or because it looks good. an uncircumcised penis is not very attractive in alot of persons eyes. unless your penis looks like a sweet potato right now and there noe extra skin you have to pull back to see the head of your penis chances are your circumcised

    leave him intact. there is not any scientific reason to circumcise. some bull reasons for the argument for... -that is cleanser no longer rather, you will desire to guard the wound after. If he's left intact you wash it such as you could a finger. You don’t pull the foreskin lower back, it’s fused there and could stay so till 4-5 each so often as much as puberty. -it seems nicer what grown determine seems at their new child after babyhood to assert "you have a superb finding penis"? Penises do no longer seem superb, they're utilitarian. If while he’s older and has a miles significant other that doesn’t like it, then that person isn’t wonderful for them -he would be made exciting of contained in the replace room the fee of circumcision is dropping, so by reducing your son is unquestionably going to make him the unusual one out. Plus maximum boys are too embarrassed to bypass greenback bare contained in the replace room anyhow. the phobia of being small or having a spontaneous erection is greater embarrassing than a foreskin -he would be much less in all probability to get STDs secure intercourse protects against STD, no longer being decrease -i want him to appear like Daddy, with the aid of fact Daddy is till daddy gets a common Brazilian or infant come out with comprehensive pubes they gained't seem the comparable. by the time they seem the comparable they would be waiting to chat their variations It’s your son's penis, no longer yours. enable him choose while he can settle on for himself.

    it is the surgical removal of the foreskin on the penis.

    it is not a necessary surgery but some do it for religious reasons and others do it because last century it became a popular thing to do.

    many feel that the removal of the foreskin aids cleanliness but any one with a foreskin is certainly able to pull back the skin to clean it while bathing.

    finally, some men feel that a foreskin protects the head of the penis and this makes it more sensitive sexually.

    it is an option parents must choose. doctors used to say that babies don't really "feel" the pain of the surgery (or, probably more correctly, they don't remember the pain). but infants do feel the pain, and, as in any surgery, you risk infection.

    Removing the extra foreskin from the tip of the penis for no apparent reason other than some people think it looks better and claim it is cleaner. Its an old fashioned procedure that is losing popularity here in the U.S. and most boys born in other parts of the world only have it done due to religious reasons.

    Circumcision is a surgical procedure which consists in cutting some or all of the foreskin (prepuce) from the penis.

  • I would never get this done to my son. I was thinking about it and now that I saw those pictures I would never get it done unless I absolutely had to. That's so bad to do to a baby when its totally not needed. I'm going to cry now.....
