This site discusses phimosis in its specific forms of phimotic ring, frenulum breve, adhesions or skinbridges. During erection these conditions inhibit the relationship between foreskin and glans. This functionally restricts the erection, and thus has an effect on the sexuality. With our culture's attitudes on health care, it would be appropriate to encourage early prevention.

My husband is British (thus uncircumcised) and we first started dating when I lived in Britain about 11 years ago. At the time, he was very reluctant to have sex and I couldn't figure out what was wrong.

After a year he finally 'fessed up that he had a problem with his foreskin being too tight and that sex was very painful for him. After much embarrassment, he finally went to a doctor about it and a few months later was checked into a hospital and circumcised under anesthetic (sp?). He went through months of excrutiating pain at the time. He also learned from friends and his own father that several of them had experienced some medical problems as children and young adults and as a result had to go through the same extremely painful procedure at some time in their lives.

As a result, he would rather have his son circumcised at birth than possibly suffer the same pain he did later on in life.

And as all of this transpired in Britain, I find it rather difficult to believe that they would consider banning circumcision. If they are, they are crazy because they must be aware how many British men end up drawing on the NHS as adults for a procedure that could have been performed at much less cost and suffering when they were infants.

Such subjective feelings develop very frequently, -- why circumcise or nothing? why these routine questions and answers? surely it would be sensible to check kids and if they need treatment then this can be individual.
