Is it unusual to keep your foreskin after being circumcised ? I was circumcised 4 years ago, and afterwards I asked one of the doctors if I could keep the foreskin. He gave me a little jar with it in before I left the hospital. I guess I was curious about what the foreskin looked like after being cut off. I've still got it in a drawer. Has anyone else kept there's ? I wonder what happens to all the foreskins which people don't want to keep. Are they just thrown away ?
