  1. The anti-circumcision crowd will give you negative stats about circumcision. So what? My impression is that, on balance, circumcision has no medical value, positive or negative. In the end, it is a *religious* commandment. For those who don’t care about Judaism, there is no reason to perform it.

  2. Ami, regarding the anti-circumcision crowd:
    The circumcised have no choice in the decision! The procedure can’t be “undone”… therefore it should not be performed at birth, where the receipient has no decision in the matter

  3. Actually ladies do NOT like circumsized penises; the lack of foreskin means that the natural lubricant in the vagina dries out very quickly which means painful intercourse !

    Sarah is correct also. Most dryness during sex is actually the result of the dry, callused glans of the circumcised penis grabbing the woman’s natural moisture and pulling it out of her. An intact man has a soft, smooth glans because it is covered by the foreskin. This makes sex more enjoyable for both partners.
