    Just wondering when circumcision fell out of favour in Australia?

    I'm 32 and about half of my mates are cut.

    Anyone got any stats? When did things peak? When did things change?

    How old are you? And what percentage of your mates are cut or uncut?

    Seems things really changed around 1980. I was born in 1975 and about 80% of my close friends are cut. I've heard it was popular longer in the country than the city though.

    Born 1978, uncut. Most of my mates from school were cut. I grew up in country Nsw but my family was from Melbourne so perhaps there is a something in the city vs. country thing.

    Almost all of the guys I've had sex with would be in the 31-40 age range now. I've not counted, but I think it was probably 50:50.

    In 2004 the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, seemingly along with every other medical organization, issued a very strong opposition to the practice of circumcision. They found, in 2004, that 59% of Australian males were circumcised but only 32% of males under age 20. The RACP says the rate of circumcsion in 2004 was between 10-20%. The high water mark would have likely been when the world turned on circumcision in the late 70's. It wasn't the entire world, the more religious the people the more likely they are circumcised.

    I just found a study that says that of the men in that age range, 49.66% are circumcised. My 50:50 was a pretty good guess.

    The only Ausie I've known was cut. I met him in Hawaii back in 1974. He was also visiting. Hell of a good-looking stud.

    When I was born in 1978, it was offered to my parents seemingly as a standard option in hospital. "Would you like us to circumcise him for you?". They were then told that most parents were opting for it, and I was done the next day. Almost like it was expected! How times change.

    Born in Sydney in 1949 and just about all the boys I went to school with were cut. There might have been three that were not and boy oh boy did I find them hot.

    I've known a handful of Aussies (a few while in the military) and I remember most were cut. I do remember 1 uncut. All were my age or younger.

    27 uncut

    its a funny one one time you can be outnumbered by cut guys and the next time you never see one. i think regions and family background is the biggest factor.

    I agree ssgt.

    Just about all my mates at high school were circumcised, but when I got to Uni I found lots of guys were uncut.

    Guess with Aussie guys you can never really tell. Funny how it can come up in conversation though

    Thanks for your feedback guys. Don't seem to be any hard and fast rules. Lots of cut and uncut guys in Oz. 50/50 split?

    There are graphs by state and nationally here. The rate today is below 20% everywhere, but in low single figures in Tas, ACT, NT, and WA. It's NSW and QSL that keep the national figure up. Because it has been trending down, most old men are still cut, young men are not.

    The RACP moved to strengthen its 2004 policy against non-therapeutic circumcision in 2009, but under intense lobbying from people like Brian Morris, Alex Wodak and Terry Russell, they watered it down just a little.
