If peer-reviewed articles (which he provides as pdfs on his site) are propaganda, then I guess propaganda has a completely different meaning than what I thought. To me propaganda is saying things like: circumcision robs you of a full sexual experience, without any proof.
I’ve said this previously, but maybe you missed it so I’ll say it again. I think everyone should choose for themselves whether circumcision is appropriate for them and their children. I tend to believe giant organizations of medical professionals over people’s feelings on a message board, which is where I get my opinion. But if you want my personal anecdotal evidence, I and most women I have encountered very much prefer the aesthetics of a circumcised penis. I have had a very fulfilling sex life, and I enjoy the sensations just fine.
Also, if I’m not mistaken, your foreskin was removed because it became infected? Is it not equally probable that an infection requiring surgical removal could reduce the sensitivity of your penis just as much or more than circumcision? Also, your story kind of reinforces the whole uncircumcised penises have more infections point.
Finally, contrary to what you believe is obvious, abstinence is the best way to avoid genital diseases. Which is even plainer and easier than condoms.
I dont know what you are up to but you appear to set things out of context like the WHO recommendations on circumscision. Which are basicly only published for high risk HIV countrys..
You talk about it beeing a free decsision but push a circumcision propaganda site that is out to influence parents with unsusbtituated fears(the guy is ripped apart all over the web for his CIRCUMCISON FETISH,,,,Search for it)..
So how do you know how it is to have sex with an intact foreskin? How can you know the difference? No peer reviewed study will explain that to you. (Here is a study with experiences of 5000 people!!! : http://sciencenordic.com/male-circu…ds-bad-sex-life). Basicly you are clueless on what you are missing out! YOU cant know it.
There is no risk to having a foreskin in europe or america. OBVIOUSLY!
NO SANE doctor recommends circumcision to a healthy foreskin in germany cause there is no risk to it cutting a piece of healthy skin full of nerve endings that create pleasure and protect the glans.
Cutting healthy foreskin is a cult-ural thing primitive tribes and religious cults do.
2012 SWEDISH PAEDIATRIC SOCIETY
Circumcision of young boys for religious and non-medical reasons ought to be banned in Sweden. “We consider it to be an assault on these boys,” said Staffan Janson, chairman of the committee for ethical issues and childrens’ rights. Children are unable to form a decision in the matter. Circumcision is an attack on boys’ integrity. “It’s such a complicated and difficult question, but even so, we’ve decided that this is a procedure to be done away with,” Janson said.”It’s a mutilation of a child unable to decide for himself.”
2010 ROYAL AUSTRALASIAN COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS
“Ethical and human rights concerns have been raised regarding elective infant male circumcision because it is recognized that the foreskin has a functional role, the operation is non-therapeutic and the infant is unable to consent. After reviewing the currently available evidence, the RACP believes that the frequency of diseases modifiable by circumcision, the level of protection offered by circumcision and the complication rates of circumcision do not warrant routine infant circumcision in Australia and New Zealand.”
The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) is a not-for-profit professional organisation responsible for training, education, and representing over 14,600 physicians and paediatricians and 6,600 trainees in 25 medical specialties in Australia and New Zealand.
“The foreskin has two main functions. Firstly it exists to protect the glans penis. Secondly the foreskin is a primary sensory part of the penis, containing some of the most sensitive areas of the penis.”
Well I rather belief sane western people instead of religious cults and primitive tribesmen.
I know I cant convert you cause you have idiological interest in it but maybe someone else gets some enlightement on this issue.
