Should circumcision be mandatory?

Has great health benefits including reduced hiv transmission by up to 60 percent. Cleaner and easier in general for the man plus it looks really nice circumcised. Thoughts on making circumcision compulsory? I think it's a great idea and can help a lot medically.

  • No. Because with proper safe sex practises - that everyone, regardless of circumcision or gender - should be utilising there is no benefit. Its not hard to clean a penis, personally I don't think it's more aesthetically appealing.
    It's a barbaric practise done to infants without their consent. If there is a medical reason, or a man decides when he's old enough to understand the process then by all means but anything other than that is superficial

    • Well said, in a perfect world this would be ideal but so many times people cannot/won't use safe sex practices and be susceptible to the consequences and circumcision can make a difference. Especially if it's working in poor areas or low social economic areas. I do agree with you but I don't think it's that easy. circumcision is a good thing in my opinion for these reasons.

    • If people can't or won't practise safe sex they shouldn't be having sex, and the vast majority of countries that could afford mandatory circumcision already have government funded birth control including condoms to prevent the spread of STD's. If they simply won't practise safe sex that's their choice and they wear the outcome of that regardless.
      Mutilating children instead of increasing the standards of education and availability of condoms and STD testing doesn't seem like a better idea to me

  • Decapitation should be mandatory. Removing the entire head at birth will result in 100% reduction of HIV infections. It will also offer a 100% reduction in blue and pink anons.

  • Male Circumcision is misandry of the highest order. That little snip of infant skin would have grown to be 15 square inches of highly erogenous tissue, the most sensitive part of the penis, which greatly affect sexual function. No wonder American girl are so sexually frustrated when 80% of males in the US are sexually mutilated.

  • Absolutely not. Circumcision has not been shown to reduce any Syd transmission in developed countries. Only condom use, regular testing, and abstinence can prevent stds. Contrary to what you're asking, routine infant circumcision should be illegal. Removing healthy, functioning erogenous tissue from and permanently altering the sexual function of a minor that cannot possibly consent is just plain wrong.

  • I don't know why humans would ever be born with something that should apparently be cut off... so no I completely disagree with you. The part about HIV transmission is basically the same as the cleanliness part so as long as you actually clean under your foreskin like you should, then you'll be fine. And no, circumcision should not be mandatory because you think it looks better. So no I completely disagree, circumcisions should not be mandatory.

    • I guess it may be helpful in low-income and poverty stricken areas, for easier cleaning and such, but I think we have other problems to worry about first, rather than forcing all the people to mutilate their penises, which, frankly, I disagree with in the first place.

  • Yeah it also make the tip of his cock less sensitive so worse sex for him... Yes, nice... Scars can occur... No thank you... I don't see myself gaining anything from cuting my fucking cock... If men should do it why shouldn't women it can be bad now can it? ;(

  • if it's cared for then the foreskin can stay and no health issues ensue. the reduction in disease is basically a myth, even if it did reduce deserve it won't be by enough to make a difference, a condom would work better.

    foreskin also helps for sex, it's better for self pleasure and it keeps it all sensitive.

    little if any benefit to removal of foreskin but losing some nice perks once gone, no thanks.

  • I personally an not circumsized, and I think it is barbaric to cut off a organ of a newborn child, I think unless you are a jew or muslim, you shouldn't have to do it. Also, as long as you properly clean it you will not get any negative health effects. Also the foreskin provides natural lubrication, and your penis is more sensitive, and sex feels better.

  • but uncircumcised have a range of different health benifits including fewer bladder and kidney infection a number of other stds are reduced and of course the penis is larger.

  • Studies show benefits, but not enough to be universally mandated
    So I don't think they should be compulsory

    • You can't 'reduce' HIV transmission. If a guy puts his dick in a guy/girl with HIV the HIV isn't going to go "oh he's circumcised nevermind"

  • Oh please hell no, I am not circumcized. I do not have hiv, my girlfriend doesn't think my dick looks weird, and if we have to have bits of our penises cut off as babies, maybe women should have pieces of their vagina cut out.

  • Not mandatory, but I'm actually all for encouragement through media and possibly partners. Sure, there's an attitude of political correctness regarding circumcision in terms of statements like "circumcision is not natural" or "it's so wrong to tamper with your body like that". But I beg to differ. People have been altering their bodies in many different ways according to the values of different cultures throughout history. As long as circumcision is not forced upon anyone, I don't find it wrong to encourage a guy to get circumcised.

    Personally I've never looked back after my girlfriend asked me to do it.

  • Yes, women should be circumcised at birth, absolutely. Not only does it prevent promiscuity and lustful thoughts when they are older, it's got medical benefits too. It also looks cleaner and teenage girls don't masturbate when circumcised. It's a great idea. More women need to think like you do.

  • I don't think it should be.. because there's no scientific data to prove your theory of health benefits.. I personally think it's alright if the kid has been circumcised when he was under 3yo... but adult circumcision can be very painful and I don't think it's worth it

  • No, the benefits are very small. Honestly it should be the choice of the person who owns the penis when they fully understand what's going to happen.
