“Incorrect. It's a matter of anatomy. In utero, when the fetus is developing, the nerve ending that crowd the clitoris in women, in men they end up in the prepuce. Circumcision removes about 50%, if not more, of the pleasure receptors of the penis. I will encourage you to watch the video in the link below.
Since my frenulum was not removed during circumcision as an infant, I have regained a bit of extra sensation on my new prepuce, and sex and masturbation are as different from before, like night and day. If you were clipped, I would recommend you to research online “foreskin restoration”.
Also, though I'm gay, my female friends always say that sex with uncircumcised men is way better that with clipped men, because the prepuce caresses their vaginal walls, while a clipped penis, with a dried out glans, irritates their vaginas. Also, they fake orgasms less with natural men than with clipped men.
I personally believe that male genital mutilation should be done by consent, not by imposition. And on this issue, I would take the side of the government over religious traditions. I would go against any religious group or tradition to make it illegal to circumcise minors.”
“Clarification... While the nerve endings in women end up in the clitoris, during development in males, the nerve endings end up in the prepuce for me. So, circumcision is pretty much like clitoridectomy. The fact that a man ejaculates does not mean sex was good, he just ejaculated. Satisfaction, and a great sexual experience are two different things...”
“Removing the prepuce is similar to clitoridectomy. The majority of the sexual receptors are in the prepuce. Women also have better sex with natural men, in comparison to circumcised men. By clipping a child, you are not only chopping away a better sex life for him in the future, but you will be denying his future wife of better sex as well.”
You do realize that by removing the prepuce, you loose over 50% of your sexual function. The BS you mentioned here is just that, BS. The medical community that are pro-circumcision are in the pockets of those companies that harvest foreskins for skin repairs and other applications, because in America, it's all about profits, no matter who gets screwed in the process.
If women were aware that, sex with intact males is 1000% better than sex with clipped men, they will be asking their clipped sexual partners to get restored ASAP. Unfortunately, given the lousy education we get in this country, the majority of people do not realize the wonderful sex life they are missing.
I am restoring right now, and making great progress. At my age, 55, my sex life is much, much better now than when I was in my 20s and 30s.
It is a shame we are depriving men and women of a great sex life by mutilating infant boys for the sake of tradition or religion.
“The newer generations do not see religion as a necessity to live a fulfilled life. It is enough to be a good person and be good to your neighbors. Believing in a made up entity a quality of life does not bring. Your good actions do.”

“As Jesus preached - over and over again - Love thy neighbor as thyself. So SIMPLE and yet so not done by so many!”
“Circumcision should be considered a form of genital mutilation.
The decline on circumcisions in the U.S. is not sharp enough; there should be no circumcisions performed in the U.S. or around the world. It is barbaric, to a certain degree it is an imposition of a religious belief onto a non-consenting child. It seems it was invented as a way to diminish the male libido, the same way the FGM was invented in order to remove sexual pleasure receptors in females.
It removes around 50% – perhaps more depending how drastic it is performed – of the nerve endings needed for a proper pre-orgasmic experience. The foreskin, or prepuce, is an organ in its own right; it is NOT “just a flap of unnecessary skin”.
Women that are pro-circumcision should have 50% of their clitoris removed, and see for themselves what it feels like to have diminished genital sensitivity.”
“It is the result of almost 2000 years of persecution by the Catholic church to impose its views of what Christianity should be, while trying to erase the other Christianities available during Roman times.
The same thing happens with Islam and theocratic countries; not accepting Islam as your faith is cause for capital punishment. Now, how puerile is that concept?!
Life is much better without organized religion.”

“Religions nearly always seek to eliminate the opposition by ELIMINATING the opposition. Dead men don't argue.”
“There is no real medical reason for genital mutilation, either male or female. It was the invention of certain groups to reduce pleasure receptors in males, and completely remove them in females.
Circumcision removes around 50% of the penile skin, and the most nerve ending are in the prepuce. The more drastic the procedure, the more nerve ending are removed. The practice was invented to reduce sexual sensitivity in males. FGM is the same, except it completely removes all sensitivity; it is like removing the whole penis.
Genital mutilation has to stop everywhere. It is denying an individual its right to enjoy a full sexual experience as an adult. The prepuce is an organ in its own right, the same way the clitoris is an organ in its own right.
“If you are a Christian, then revenge belongs only to God. If you are not, then you know the death penalty does not solve anything. We, as a society, are better off investing in the education of our youth, so we ameliorate the rise of these monsters.”

“Christians are about the most blood-thirsty people on earth. Some of them make the Taliban seem modern.”
“I agree with you. I want the return of mom and pop shops. But, since in this country some people thing malls is definitely it, soon I'll be moving to a country where shopping malls are almost non-existent, and small shops prevail.
With the old style of shopping, you get to know the shop owners, and they get to know you. I know some American love the impersonal shopping experience of a mall, but that's not me.
I don't like socially irresponsible companies, and Walmart as far as I'm concerned, can go bankrupt.”
“We are both in agreement. Still, the fact that Islam and Christianity are based on embellished stories around two prophets. Nobody resurrected from death, nor anyone ascended to heaven either via angels or winged horses.
What I'm against is this ridiculous vision in Islamic countries in which not wanting to be part of the Islamic faith is cause for capital punishment. It makes Islam look like a very primitive and unattractive religion.
This poor woman is better off dead that living in such deplorable country and their archaic faith.”
“I love when women comment about things they don't know anything about...!
Circumcision is barbaric. It is the removal of one of the most sensitive organs of the male anatomy; it is not a flap of skin, but an organ with a precise function to perform. Would you go for removing half your clitoris, because circumcision removes about 50% of the penile skin, and the most sensitive part is the prepuce.
It seems this barbaric practice is a way to diminish the libido in men, and some men have had such a drastic removal of the prepuce that they cannot have normal sex because orgasms are painful; they can only masturbate. The lack of foreskin over the glans also makes the glans, or balanus, smaller and keratinized.
Circumcision is genital mutilation. It is time to end that horrid practice, as well as female genital mutilation, or clitoridectomy. This is a type of religious/cultural tradition we can get rid of.
And women should embrace an uncut penis. The prepuce seems to make vaginal intercourse much more pleasant, for what I've been reading from female bloggers.”
“When will some people get that provincialism is not cool anymore? When will some people understand that, any form of bias against others that are different from us, is not acceptable. Times are changing fast, and for the better regarding social issues.”
“Perhaps this wouldn't have happened if Apple built their products here in the United States. When you use a foreign country and company to make your products in order to save in salaries, then you risk having that company steal your I.P. Yes, the products might be a bit more expensive, but Apple products are expensive no matter what. Now, Apple and Samsung are wasting millions just debating who stole what in court.
Wouldn't it be cheaper to build those precious phones here in America, and use the money you are not using in law suites to pay for good American salaries?”
“You might not see the problem because you did not get anything part of your genitalia removed when you were a child. As a man in the process of restoration, with good results so far, I think using the feeble excuse of removing one of the most sensitive parts of the male anatomy, so that the child's penis looks like his dad's is preposterous!
Circumcision should be performed only if the person is an adult, with his consent, for some medically necessary reason; it should never be performed on a child just because.
Circumcision exists as a form of religious imposition, as well as a form of controlling the male libido. An exposed balanus is keratinized, therefore diminishing the pleasure it can experience. The pleasure a covered balanus provides does not compare to an uncovered one. I now do know better.”
“Like the iPhone is such a good phone. I've had several iPhone models, which always went back to the store. I don't like the Apple ecosystem that much; too restrictive.”

“Jailbreak it, I will agree with you, they should let you do what you want. But I think their point is they would have so many issue with compatibility with their operating system, is mostly the reason why they don't like Jail-breaking it.”

“I will research the Spanish version of the news, but I infer they are talking about genetic markers for the different varieties the country will be selling in the future. Since most commercial pot is a hybrid between two species, most probably they refer to varietal genetic markers.”
