Gut Rumbles

February 21, 2006


I love interesting comments on my posts. I got some good ones about circumcision. Did I read them wrong, or were ALL of the pro-circumcision comments from wimmen, who don't HAVE dicks--- at least not the last time I looked?

I liked their reasoning, too. A clipped dick is "prettier." (HUH?) I've had sex with MANY wimmen who didn't realize that I AM NOT circumsized until the act was over and they saw Roscoe on break. The foreskin stays the same size when a penis becomes erect. Think of what happens as being kinda like one of those push-up ice cream bars. Sprout wood and the "ice cream" rises right out of the holder. Anyone who can "look 'em in the eye" and tell the difference between a clipped and non-clipped dick at that point has either really good eyes or one hell of a lot of experience.

The disease crap is just that--- crap. But there IS that "risk" thing doctors mention that makes wimmen hyperventilate and develop the vapors even if the "risk" is a got-dam lie. Soap and water eliminates that alleged disease problem, and I've never known any boy (or man, for that matter) who didn't ENJOY washing his pecker... Strictly for hygene purposes, of course.

I'll tell you the REAL difference, from my PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. (Listen closely, wimmen--- you might learn something here.) When I had my bionics installed, they caused a permanent semi-erection until they softened up a bit. For about six months, I walked around with the head of my Roscoe pushed out past the foreskin and I found the situation VERY irritating.

At first, having the head of my dick rub around inside my pants was uncomfortable to the point of actually being painful at times. Then, after a while, I LOST SENSATION in that area. Not completely--- I didn't go altogether dick-dead--- but I damn sure wasn't as sensitive as I had been all my life. Even today, now that the bionics are all broken in, I notice the difference. It ain't as good as it once was.

You clipped guys may call BULLSHIT and say that if it got any better you couldn't stand it, but YOU don't have a comparison to make. I DO. You just don't know what you missed because you never had it.

When my son was born, I was adamant that he would NOT be circumsized. I'm not, my daddy wasn't, HIS daddy wasn't, none of my uncles were and--- amazingly enough--- not a single one of us EVER had any kind of disease or infection problem. I think we all liked washing our dicks... a LOT.

Of course, I would not be surprised if that BC ex-wife of mine decided to have Quinton circumsized. She might use "disease" to justify doing it, but that wouldn't be her true motivation. She's just sadistic. And I think circumcision is a barbaric act.

I apologize to all my Jewish friends, but I still think the Big Clip is one religious ritual you folks could do without.


If the Rabbi's justify circumcision for health reasons, why do they still sometimes perform circumcisions on babies who die before the eighth day? Seems evident to me that the hygiene excuse isn't the only thing going on if a child is already dead. Just wondering.

Hmm ... I feel like I should say something on this, since I know a bit about it: I have no doubt in my my mind that circumcision is excruciating, and since I'm am not endowed with that equipment I can't really comment on the degree of "barbarism" involved ... however, being the religious Jew that I am, I could tell you that the circumcision (in Hebrew: Brit Milah, Covenenat of Circumcision) is meant ONLY for Jews and Muslims, and why people of other faiths have it done is anybody's guess. Abraham in the Bible is commanded by G-d to A) circumcize himself at 99 years of age and B) circumcize his son Isaac at 8 days. From this tradition, all Jewish boys are to be circumcized on the 8th day, and if there are any blessings involved there, it's that he's too young to remember that pain. Abraham's other son, Ishmael (believed to be the beginnings of the Muslim nation) was circumcized at the same time as Isaac, except Ishmael was 13 at the time and that has become Muslim tradition.
the only time a Jewish child is not to be circumcized on the eighth day is in the case of sickness, in which case it is postponed untilo the baby is well enough for the procedure to take place.
I thought this was a good article ... by the "Professionals":

Being "cut" - I agree with you about the loss of sensetivity. All three of my boys have been circumsized just because I am. The one possitive thing I can think of, with loss of sensetivity, is that I can "hold off" for a much longer time. Had I not been cut - I'd never get my wife off.

Yes, I speak from experience. Always have liked getting up close and personal.

Yet I never knew about the sensitivity issue. Thought it was due to self-abuse!

I shall never denigrate or think ewww when I see a pecker in its au natural state again!

Well put Rob!

5 of my nephews were done ... when I had my own son I was a bit leary and didn't do it.

In retrospect I'm glad I didn't. Well written post btw.

I'm cut, but not my 3 sons. I figured I'd let them make that decision for themselves.

The old corn dog vs. hot dog argument.

As a hot dog, I can still rack a shotgun. Case closed.

I think it's a barbaric practice. If you are concerned about hygiene, wash your damn dick as Rob said or teach your sons good hygiene..
I've had both and from a womans perspective I can definitely say that I enjoyed the noncirc much better. I found it to be softer (not in the erect vs. non erect sort of way) and much more sensitive to my touch. Given the choice, I would definitely choose the noncirc.
I believe the foreskin was put there for a reason, to protect and had I had a boy I would not have had him circed. That's just me but I believe boys should be given the choice, not have the foreskin hacked off at birth.

I discussed this issue with my urologist just recently. I've always found the process just outright creepy. Babies are born every day and we chop off parts of their bodies. What's worse is that when you suggest NOT chopping off a part of a babies' body, these same people look at you like you have three heads. I was shocked when my urologist told me that he had his son circumsized to avoid the slight chance in adulthood that he develop an infection the way some of his patients do. I wanted to ask if he also had the child's pinky finger removed so he never has to worry about getting it accidentally slammed in a car door.
