    This is one for my fellow Aussies.

    The general rule seems to be that Aussie guys OVER 30 are circumcised, and UNDER 30 they're not.

    But how true is that?

    What age are you? And what percentage of guys your age do you reckon are circumcised?

    I'm 32 and cut... and reckon 60% of guys my age are too, but could be wrong.

    Your thoughts?

    Disagree. I'm 49 and uncut, and know plenty of others like me.

    43 and cut

    Went to mostly multicultural schools so was probably a 50/50 mix but from memory most caucasians were cut.

    I'm 36 and would say about 80% of the Anglo guys at my all boys school were circumcised. Hardly any of the Italian or Greek guys though.

    Since leaving school I've come across a lot more uncut guys my age, so I'd say the circ rate for Aussies born in the mid 70s was somewhere between 50% and 70%.

    25, uncut.
    I have 2 friends that are cut and I don't know of many that are; most the guys I've seen my age at the gym have their hood.

    The Australian circumcision rate fell past 50% about 1975, so guys over 36 are more likely to be cut, under, more likely to be intact, but that's only a statistical probability, and it will vary a lot by state, ethnic origin and happenstance.

    I'm 34 and uncut. For guys my age in Melbourne it's about 50/50.
    I once did a series of searches on one of the gay dating sites running a search for all melb guys of a particular age, first by cut and then by uncut. My age was the first year when the uncuts slightly outnumbered the cuts. All older ages there were more cuts, and with younger ages the uncuts were winning.
    Not sure it's the same throughout Aus though. Health and hospitals are essentially state government matters is Aus, so policies on funding and recommending circumcision in public hospitals probably varied by state.

    Thanks for your responses so far. Seems like my theory is generally agreed to. Love to hear from others. Nick

    32 here and used to do exactly the same. Still get quite a few who would rather not say their circumcision status though, wouls skew the resullts.

    Observation at the pool would suggest most men there are uncut, although a lot seem to be European background. What surprises me is the number of Asian boys who appear cut. Most of the African boys are shy but the few I've seen are cut.
