Recently, I became aware of the pervasive mis-/dis-information (or, more correctly, propaganda campaigns) of anti-circumcision groups by reading an article in a widely circulated Canadian newspaper. It was essentially a testimonial written by a circumcised man who was seeking foreskin restoration through a series of bizarre techniques using weights and masking tape. The impetus for this restoration was that he became convinced by anti-circumcision groups that he had been sexually mutilated as a child. I was completely horrified by this story!
I was circumcised at 68 years of age, after 65 years attending a boarding school (Geelong Grammar) where 99 per cent of boys were circumcised. My foreskin was horrible - it had a long elephant trunk - and I found the build up of smegma, etc impossible to control. I was highly relieved to finally be circumcised, but the operation could have been better performed. Too much inner skin was taken, and not enough skin in total.
I am 77 and after talking to my girlfriend I decided to get circumcised. I have some questions that even after talking to my doctor were not answered. I would be pleased if you could answer these: 6 - How much skin is going to be removed ? Is it up to me ? 7 - What kind of medicine should I take after the surgery ? (antibiotics, painkiller, etc) 8 - How long should I avoid sexual intercourse ? My doctor said It should be a month , but in your page you said 7 weeks would be sufficient. 9 - As I don't have phimosis is the surgery simpler?
I hope to hear from your soon and thanks in advance.

I use to really be against circumcision as a teen and adult. But I like to dig out the facts, and the debate the intactivists have created made me very curious about what they had to say. I found intactivist comments and arguments and facts are not supported by science. In fact the science says the opposite. That is why the AAP, the CDC, the WHO, and UNAIDS all recommend circumcision. The science shows that 6) circumcision is incredibly safer than vaccinating your child. 7) circumcision is now done painlessly on newborn boys. 8) circumcision does not reduce male sexual pleasure, and is positively correlated with LESS sexual dysfunction. 9) the benefits of male circumcision include(but not limited to) significantly reducing the risk of: yeast and bacterial infections, UTIs, prostate, cervical, and penile cancer, STIs including HIV, and prevents common problems caused by the foreskin being too tight.
Hinduism, like some of its gods and goddesses, has many faces depending on caste and location. Shrines and places of pilgrimage in one region may differ entirely from those in other areas, and while many follow the Vedas as being sacred texts and dharma as moral code, not all do. Belief in a supreme god is common, though the gods and goddesses that come from him vary. Reincarnation , or coming back to life after death in a continuous circle of dying and rebirth is common, as is a belief in karma , or the just desserts of sorts that determines what level and what form you will take when being reborn. Karma is based largely on what you did while alive, good and bad [source: BBC ].

Experience it seems is something that he certainly has because he informed me of doing four circs one morning. In actual fact there is another chap who is undergoing the same procedure on Wednesday. He averages one a week, and even for aesthetic reasons such as mine. And on Wednesday I too will be done. He explained to me that I will have to have a general anaesthetic and apparently I will have some stitches, which is something I didn't realize, but so be it. He has assured me that the result will be good and look perfectly normal.
Jupiter is very well posited in your chart and thus ushers in good and neat financial tidings. Bosses or if you have financial backers may think you are not functioning properly when you listen to your intuition. But that is what pays off in the longer run for you. If you are involved with a working condition that uses personal efforts, remember that it is sure to bring immense success. Do try and build a nest&rsquo s egg saving money for times when you may need them rather than spending unnecessarily. The stars indicate that there could be heavy expenses incurred due to illness of a family member. To combat those kinds of situations, it is advisable to practice discretion and financial planning to avoid lack of finances available. After the second half of the year, there are chances and indications of pay rise and promotions. Overall a very good year for money and finance provided you can control your urge for wasting and spending money.
Today it is often forgotten, but once upon a time communism had a sort of free love vibe to it. Generally, it led to increasing rights for women in countries that became communist from Russia and Ukraine in Eastern Europe to China and Vietnam in Asia. Women gained an immense amount of personal freedom as old religious and cultural restrictions on their behavior collapsed as the new communist leaders attempted to remake not just the government, but society in general along Marxist-Leninist lines.
Hi. I was just browsing through the net and read one of the articles on 'Circumcision' authored by you. I am a male in late twenties and am not able to retract my skin when the penis is in the erect position. I have never masturbated in my life till now. I feel the orgasm or I ejaculate only during some sex-related dreams. Do you think, I can still go ahead with circumcision? Thanks
First, let’s consider Cuba for a few minutes. Cuba is a large island a little larger than the US state of Tennessee. It has a tropical climate that is moderated by the fact that the island is only 669 miles wide at its widest point and 69 miles at its narrowest. That means that nearly every city, town, and village on the island is within twenty miles of the cool breezes from the Gulf of Mexico or the Caribbean Sea.

I m hoping that you'd provide me with some information and other details that I should be aware of before deciding.
This stark contrast between what the study says and what the media reports said did not go unnoticed. In his column for Discover magazine, geneticist Razib Khan said this about the media coverage of the study: “But in the quotes in the media the other authors (other than Reich that is - ed) seem to be leading you to totally different conclusions from this. Instead of leaning toward ANI being proto-Indo-European, they deny that it is.”
