Q.

manhood and the natural feel

Why is there this constant fetish by parents and others to remove the vital foreskin god and nature gave males? Illogical and disgusting. No caring parent should even consider this abusive invasive procedure. Parents male infant circumcison is extremely trauamtic and painful for infant even with dorsal nerve bloc. Leave alone and forget yr voodoo fetish.

yr reply here is a cop out and will be reported to yr medical association in violation of hippocratic oath. There is NEVER any reason to circumcise a male infant medically. Best interests approach violated by so many doctors and parents to mutilate male infants for MYTH and whim. Disgusting demeaning and debauched. This is like RAPE not entitled opinioin where do u find opinion to assault a female infant in best interest if the child eyt male can be brutalised by penille circumcision to follow religious croc of parents NOT of the child et al Dr Msarais or community enforcing mutilation like Xhosa when a male there says NO NO NO !!!!!!!
