Foreskin And Seven Years Ago …

The Unkindest Cut Of All

The first time I saw an uncircumcised penis was on the cover of John and Yoko’s album “Two Virgins.” I thought John had forgotten to take off his condom.  In the 1950’s, almost all kids in America got circumcised – especially the boys. All the guys on my block got one as soon as they were born and some of them couldn’t walk for a year!

People against circumcision have changed America’s minds. Today, only one in three baby boys is circumcised.  One of the most militant groups opposed is “Mothers Against Circumcision.” “Intact America” is another. They believe the operation is only supported by medical myths, religious traditions, is extremely painful, and a violation of human rights (Yikes!)

I’ve read the pros and cons about circumcision and I decided it’s not right for me.  Unfortunately, my parents made the opposite decision years ago and there’s no going back on it.  There are also no accepted medical procedures to reattach foreskins – even if you could find one in the right size and color.
