Complications rare with baby circumcisions, rise with age
ĚReuters via FOXNews ^ | May 13, 2014

There are few reported complications after boys are circumcised during their first year of life, but the risk rises considerably if the procedure is performed later in childhood, according to a new analysis published on Monday.

Previous research found wide variations in the rates of complications following male circumcisions. Those studies were often small and based on patients from a single hospital.

For the new study, published Monday in JAMA Pediatrics, researchers used data from U.S. insurance claims for babies younger than one year old, children between ages one year and nine years and older children 10 years and older. The findings do not include children who underwent ritual circumcisions in a non-medical setting.

And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed. Genesis 17:12(KJV)

Leave this to the PROFESSIONALS The Rabbis! Think there MAY be SOMETHING SPECIAL about the 8th day(Like G*D knew what HE was doing?!)!

So, God supports buying children from strangers?

I’m guessing the main complication is convincing an adult male to get it done.

Sure, the risk he might object.

Blood platelets rise to a maximum level after birth on the 8th day; and then start to decrease. Hence, if you wanted to circumcise someone, you would choose the 8th day.

I knew a guy, in the Navy in fact, that was engaged and his soon to be wife wouldn’t marry him until he had “the deed” done.

He was 34...he said if he didn’t love her so much, knowing what he knew after the fact...he would have told her take it, or leave it.

Said it was “the” single most painful thing he had ever done and would not have done it if he knew just how damn painful it was going to be.

Yep that is where THIS comes in:

An honest discussion of the subject requires acknowledging that it has a real effect on sexual options for the typical married couple.

I had a 30 year old friend have it done, we had a grand time mocking his suffering for the following week or two.

In some circumcisions, the doctors throw away the wrong part.

Really. Why don't you tell us about it. Interesting handle for someone that just joined. How about introducing yourself?

Plenty of guys in RVN were begging to have it done after the itch drove them crazy.

In 1963 I was in a air force hospital in Japan after a appendectomy. my two roommates were black guys, one of which had a circumcision, he was in his 30’s and was in great pain. The other fellow had a broken leg and a beautiful ebony wife that would visit him every afternoon. The visit would always cause the circ. guy a rise in the bed sheets accompanied by grimaces of elevated pain. I hate to admit it but I looked forward to those visits

See my message to explain my apparent new status. Or see my posts to decide if I’m a credible longtime Freeper who might have a good reason for a new account.

I don’t think this is the place to go into detailed sexual technique, but to summarize: Uncircumcised men have the choice of intercourse with or without retracting the foreskin, each creating different sensations, and one necessitating more lubrication than the other. The natural foreskin protects the glans, and some believe this preserves its sensitivity that may be dulled if the glans is exposed to friction with underclothes in daily life. Also, the foreskin contains ample nerve endings capable of providing pleasurable sensations, and these are eliminated by circumcision.
