Circumcision has no adverse effect on sexual function, or penile sensation; if anything the opposite. Many men report that their sexual experience is enhanced after getting circumcised. Unfortunately misinformation placed on the Internet by individuals and organizations who are opposed to circumcision has deluded some of the 1 in 10 men who have sexual problems into falsely believing that their infant circumcision is to blame. These men then join anti-circumcision groups and perpetuate their unscientific myths.
The benefits of circumcision exceed the risks by over 100 to 1. The risks are mostly minor and easily and immediately treated and are less than other vaccinations. The consequences of remaining uncircumcised can be very serious indeed. Half of uncircumcised males will suffer at least one medical problem during their lifetime because of their foreskin. Some will die from penile cancer, prostate cancer, and more from HIV. The female partners of uncircumcised men are more likely to get cervical cancer, sexually transmitted infections and ensuing medical problems. Thus circumcision is a wise choice. It is referred to in medical circles as a "surgical vaccine".
This site aims to provide information on all aspects of circumcision aimed at the general public, and especially at parents who are expecting a boy, and who are trying to find information to make an informed choice. This site also aims to allay some of the fears that are being spread by the anti-circumcision lobby, which has been zealously proclaiming the so-called disadvantages of circumcision and trying to frighten prospective parents. There is another view, a more sane one which is based on medical facts and experience, which we are aiming to provide here.
Please note that the site is still work in progress, so please check back for updates. If you have a questions of comments, please contact us (see Navigation Bar -About - Contact Us). We look forward to hearing from you!
