Circumcision Anyone? A Quick Snip of a Blog.

Encouraged by a young man’s needs, I have decided to have a closer inspection of the modern penis. Never requiring too much encouragement, but as a lady from the Uk I am at a statistical disadvantage. Adapted members are not the norm in Britain, and therefore tricky to get ones hands on.  

How modern I thought. Pimp my penis.  Not so… willies have been modified since willies were invented a 100 years ago, and it’s thought that 3/4 of the male (obviously) population have gone ahead and put their tails on the block.

Muslim faith decrees it, but Jewish men partake mainly because Jewish ladies will never touch anything unless it’s 20% off.

Popular also amongst other mammals’, Moby Dick had to enlist the services of fore skin divers after a nasty bout of crabs.

In the UK we tend to work on the ‘if it aint broke don’t fix it’ rule, so unless it hurts to use, rotting  or you have an old shilling stuck under it, everything remains intact.

Babies normally undergo the procedure between 7-10 days, a simple snip, similar to clipping the tails off new born puppies, and normally needing no stitches. However, I do know of a friend who had her son circumcised at a week old. I’m not sure what went wrong, but it was at least a year before he could walk.  As a late comer, an adult visit will be local anesthetic, half an hour fiddling, and 4 weeks until your maiden voyage.

Ok, so why?

1. Infant circumcision gives 100% protection from penile cancer. Sweeping statement….

2. Cancer of the cervix in women is due to the Human Papilloma Virus. It thrives under and on the foreskin from where it can be transmitted when you have it off. It’s suggested that at least 20% of cancer of the cervix would be avoided if all men were circumcised…..fair play.

3. Protection against HIV and AIDS. Another British Medical Journal article in May 2000 suggested that circumcised men are 8 times less likely to contract the HIV virus…..OK. Some men will tell you anything so as not to wear a condom. Remember ladies, God gave men a penis and a brain, but not enough blood to use them both at once. You make the decisions.

4. A trimmed member is odour-free, feels cleaner, and you enjoy better sex. Awareness of a good body image is a very important factor in building self confidence….. I think this point was written by the circumcision fan club. Don’t kid yourself. Any willy will get stinky if you don’t wash it for a week, and willies just are not that pretty. With or without. Not loveable like sable Pomeranian puppies at any rate.

5. Balanitis is an unpleasant, often recurring, inflammation of the glans. It is quite common and can be prevented by circumcision….Eh? This is the sort of catch-all foreskin disorder that doctors diagnose when you’re boring them and they’d rather you zipped up. I had to look ‘Balanitis’ up.  I only know one reason for a penis swelling, and it normally cost £60 for half an hour.

6. Urinary tract infections sometimes occur in babies and can be quite serious. Circumcision in infancy makes it 10 times less likely…… OK, I’m a granny. I know these things.

So, why not?

Circumcision does remove a lot of the nerve endings found in the foreskin, and these nerve endings could otherwise contribute to sexual sensitivity. The foreskin may actually be beneficial to the sexual satisfaction/pleasure of not only the man, but the woman, the other man/ goat as well.

 And the lubrication issue. Without the skin, you may need some extra help during a DIY session. Although a great fan of lube, I would suggest the cunning use of a  quality hand cream. This way it may be possible to encourage involvement from those suffering poorly moisturized hands for mutual benefit. If all else fails, remember, self masturbation is always very safe. Not only are you able to control the technique of the person you’re with, but you can leave when you want to.
My research seems to show, that in the majority of chaps whom are circumcised, it tends to have negative effects on their sex life. This isn’t universally true, and not for those who had broken bleeding willies from SRI’s (Shagging Related Injuries), where anything is better than nothing.

So chaps, it’s a bit of a toss up, and like all discussions on circumcision we have reached our cutoff  point, so let me know your thoughts and heightened feelings.

Back in a snip with another blog……..

  1. This is a really informative post! Very interesting to read and full of facts that have somewhat shocked me, but fascinated me at the same time!

  2. Did you get your facts from the 1950’s? Or did you get your facts from tabloids? There is a publication called JAMA where 99% of the worlds medical scientists and doctors go to for reference. There are no instances in JAMA that recognizes or boasts that uncircumsized penises accelerates, causes, or correlates with cancer, HIV, and so on. Your comments only perpetuate the ignorance of male brutality. More importantly, it has to be understood that it’s not just a SNIP. The infant baby without any pain assistance, is strapped down to a teflon/plastic board (google “circumcision procedure”), a bladed tube is forced down around the head and foreskin to cut the skin away from the head (under the age of 3 the male penis and foreskin are attached), once the bladed tube separates the head from the foreskin then the skin is torn or cut off around the circumference. According to you it’s snipping… imagine shoving a bladed tube down your index finger to separate the skin from your bone and then cut it. In the US it’s about business… about $50 to $300 procedure billed to the insurance. It’s good business snipping, torturing, mutilating a child. Wake up… it’s 2011. You have the internet, google it… yahoo it…

  3. The supposed nonreligious reasons for men being circumcised are:

    CLEANER: Instead of cutting newborn boys, women should inspect their lovers and send them to the bath if they are found wanting in cleanliness.

    HEALTHIER: Every medical problem that routine circ supposedly addresses, is much better addressed by condoms and/or fidelity, and perhaps even by giving johnson a wash before and after some passion time.

    SEXIER: Wrong. The bits sacrificed to circ are the most sensitive in the entire male body. It is possible that intact men are more willing to wear condoms for this reason. The sliding action of the foreskin makes vaginal intercourse more pleasant for him, and often for her too. The foreskin interacts nicely with her lubrication and his precum. The only thing I do that makes my wife say quietly “Stop that. It gives me uncontrollably randy thoughts” is when I slide my foreskin back and forth with her looking on. I suspect that the bald johnson is more susceptible of becoming insensitive in middle age, which can lead to a cessation of marital sex.

    Why do it to newborns? Simply because they can’t say no, and the recovery period is one where they aren’t doing much with their lives anyway. This wrongly trumps all ethical reservations about bodily autonomy and integrity.

  4. Becky, would you, for one moment, entertain the idea that girls should have their clitoral glans removed?

    I ask this because this would seem to be quite a similar thing. You mentioned yourself that removing the foreskin removes a lot of nerves. Would it surprise you to know that the foreskin contains 20,000 nerve endings and the clitoral glans contains 8,000?

    The foreskin has the most sensitive parts of the penis and the mapping of it was done by Sorrels et al. It can be found here-

    There is always damage with mutilating the foreskin, but there can also be a lot of other problems and complications that may take some time to develop or be found at the time. If you look up meatal stenosis, meatitis, skin bridges and adhesions, you will start to see some of the slow developing problems. Others that can be at the time would include haemorrhage, pain, infection(including MRSA), penile amputation and death. As to the latter, 49 boys have died this year,so far, and 91 died last year, in South Africa, due to circumcision(remember most circumcised boys in the world have this done to them from the ages of 7 to 18 and done in unsanitary conditions).

    Good luck with your research into the subject. There’s a lot to learn about it. There are a lot of youtube videos about it, and if you find one that includes one being performed you may wish to turn the volume down as it’s quite a horrific scream.

  5. Thank you Tally for your comment, and all your info.
    I’m sure you’re correct in all your replies. I’m new to blogging and glad to see both you and Guggie being kind enough to read my musings.
    I’m not anti-science really Guggie. In fact I’m delighted by, and fairly knowledgeable on cosmetic surgery developments! I’m just more into telling a good tale whilst learning a few things as I go. I’d never thought about circumcision and the resulting ups and downs until yesterday! Amazing.

    Thanks again chaps!

  6. Your reasons why need to be updated:

    1. Circumcision does not prevent penile cancer. The rate of penile cancer in the mostly circumcised United States is higher than in many non-circumcised countries. See

    2. The relationship between HPV and circumcision is very weak. Recent studies show that other factors come into play and that the circumcision status of the male has very little bearing on any cancer in the female.

    3. One recent study showed that women have a 50% increased rate of HIV infection if their male partner is circumcised. The only studies that show any benefit for HIV are for men in heterosexual relationships, and those studies are questioned by many experts as being fatally flawed. Regardless, protecting men at the expense of women does not sound good to me.

    4. First world countries have running water. It is inexcusable for a man to not practice good hygiene. I think it polite to rinse my bits before getting intimate. I expect the same from my partner, so it is only fare I do so, too.

    5. Balanitis is often caused by over-washing the penis. Soap should never be used inside the foreskin. It dries out the mucous membrane and causes problems. There is a study that shows replacing the soap washing with just a rinse clears up cases of recurrent balanitis.

    6. UTIs in baby boys is relatively rare and usually treated with antibiotics. It takes 100 to 300 infant circumcisions to prevent one UTI in a boy. Baby girls have a much higher rate of UTIs than the boys, and we think nothing of using antibiotics on the girls.

    As for the reasons not to circumcise, you are spot on. There is a New Zealand study that determined that many female problems, like vaginal dryness and being sore after sex, are caused by their partner having a male circumcision. I was circumcised at birth and I am restoring my foreskin. I no longer need to use lube when wanking and when having sex. My girlfriend stopped being sore after sex, also. I have much more sexual pleasure since I restored my foreskin. I can only wonder what it would have been like if I had kept all my bits when I was born.
