I always wondered what was the difference between circumcised and uncircumcised guys- certainly when I was a teenager, I noticed that most of my friends had a significant extra that I lacked but it was not until I had my own child that the issue really hit home. Should I put the kid under the knife? I decided not to, and now, 16 years later, I am rebuked for it and asked to arrange what I should have done years’ ago. Birthright, religious affiliation, aesthetics and so on all came into the argument, but let’s face it, the chap faces three or four uncomfortable weeks and the benefits he assumes might seem less attarctive when he wakes up looking or a pain-killer tomorrow night.
I told him- Michaelangelo’s David looks fine without a trim.
