    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 ?

    Yes, and slightly weird.
    I wasn't given a choice about the procedure and I doubt if my parents were offered the option of retaining my foreskin.
    Generally, yes, they're discarded. In USA, a small portion of the neonatal foreskins are sold to tissue processors. An example is SkinMedica which sells lotions containing "neonatal fibroblast" additives.

    I was circumcised reasonably late - at the age of 11 or 12 - I didnt ask for the to present the foreskin afterwards it but I guess some might want it (like tonsils) my ex had her gall bladder removed and I asked for the stones as a keep sake - I think I got to keep them in the marital settlement! Possibly the nicest part of her is in a little speciman jar in my folks loft!

    Imagine the celebrity memorabilia prices around foreskins - how much would Jimi Hendrix's be worth or Elvis Presley's (I am not suree if they were cut or not)

    I remember Houston or some other porn star sold a bit of her nether regions (or am I making that up)

    I am sure there would be a huge market!

    I certainly hope so!:eek::biggrin1:



    nakeddad, I'm so sorry you are this dissatisfied with your own body. That you would even consider sewing on the cast-off skin of another human being, speaks volumes about how upset you are. :frown1:

    They tried to Circumcise me and it didnt work. Which left a dark brown scar wring that i like. As a young man i noticed i had lots of skin i could pull even when i was rock hard. So as i got older i noticed one day for some reason my penis felt great and new and i didnt know why till i looked. Skin was starting to cover the head. From that day on ive been stretching and packing it. It takes time and is well worth it. I also gained some real girth and a little more length. :cool:

    Well Matt, it would be useful not because the doc has preserved it in formaldehide. But I have heard where there were cases that they used foreskins for grafting when people were burned.

    Foreskins for Sale Thread


    I kept my 2 inch splinter that I had when I was younger, I would have kept my foreskin had I had the choice I was done when i was just a few months old so didn't have a choice, eventhough I would have rathered that my parent would have left my foreskin where it belonged on my PENIS.

    Generally they are NOT discarded, in the US MOST foreskins are sold, this is why hospitals are still encouraged to circumcise, and they then package and resell the foreskins and make big profits eventhough they still charge the parents and insurance companies for their removal.

    matt121matt121, I don't remember my source but it was anti-circ and the comment was along the line of: there are so many RIC's in USA that only a fraction are purchased by the fibroblast processors such as ATS or SkinMedica. When you think about how many RIC's are done, it makes sense. That's not to say fibroblast processing isn't big, it is. Annual revenue is around a billion dollars per annum, give or take a few hundred million.

    It's my personal belief that money isn't the main driving factor behind RIC. It's a factor perhaps a big factor but there are many others. To dwell upon money distracts from the bigger factors.

    I had the weirdest run of emotions over this thread. Strange, odd, semi repulsive, understanding, sympathetic, amused....

    Whew!

    A lot of diversity here.

    Wish I had mine back...for real, and not in my sock drawer.

    What use is a foreskin after it's been removed ? I've only kept mine out of curiosity.
