    I just wondered if being circumcised as a baby makes you more or less willing to have other body mods, or has no effect. (Damn! I now realise that to measure that, voluntary adult circumcision should go in the last box. Can't change it now. And it'd be damned hard to express that in 100 letters without confusing people.)

    Well i was circumcised as a baby and i dont have any tats or piercings. And my mom has always been very firm about me not getting any tats. And i'd say that being circumcised as a baby didn't make me more willing, being cut never really enteres my thought process as a body mod, it always seemed to be the norm to me.

    I wasn't circumcised as a baby (my parents were against it) but I noticed that some of my school friends were circumcised. I wasn't sure whether I liked the look of a circumcised cock when I was very young, but as I grew up I started to like it. I became fairly fascinated by piercing during my early teens, although I'm not sure why. It might be because my mother got her ears pierced when I was about 10, at a time (mid '60s) when it was not fashionable. I started occasionally piercing my foreskin or fremum for the erotic buzz of it, letting it heal after. But when I was about 19 I inserted rings in holes I made in my foreskin. I went on to have many further piercings and mods - look in my gallery, but ONLY if you like this sort of thing. Please don't print my pictures and show them to people in order to gross them out. I developed a liking for tattoos but I still have none. I got myself circumcised, simply because I fancied it, when I was 30. By then, I already had an idea about the split cockhead and thought it would look better without the foreskin. I liked foreskin sensations but I don't miss them. Sex without a foreskin is just as good, maybe slightly better, than with, IMHO. Although I've had lots of different piercings I now only wear 1 ring in my left ear lobe and another in my right nipple. I don't have any plans for further piercings although you never know??? :smile:

    When I was in college, I had my ear pierced. After about 6 months or so, I let it close up because the novelty had worn off. I do have two fairly small tattoos. I was cut as a baby.

    I was cut as a baby, and I have no desire to be pierced or tattooed. When you get old, the tats will too. Plus, your piercings will stretch.

    Same here. I never cared for tattoos or piercings. I always thought that the best way to dress up your body was to be fit and get a sun tan. I'm more into the clean cut look.

    Maybe TomSchmo and I are the only ones; but most Americans don't consider infant circumcision a body modification.

    I was cut as a baby. I have my ears double pierced and guaged. The front holes are 6 guage and the backs are 00's. I also have 5 tats with a minimum of 3 more planned.

    NJQT, can't say that I disagree with what you've said. But... if most Americans don't consider infant circumcision body modifications, that's only because they've never given it a moment's worth of actual intelligent thought. They're so wrapped up in religious beliefs and misconceptions that they can't see past that into reality.

    I can guarantee you that if you started routinely cutting off infant's eyelids they'd sure as HELL consider that body modification/mutilation...


    And now back to the actual poster's question. Yup, circumcised, dual nips, frenulum. By my OWN choice.

    For NJQT:

    Body modification (or body alteration) is the permanent or semi-permanent deliberate altering of the human body for non-medical reasons, such as; sexual enhancement, a rite of passage, aesthetic reasons, denoting affiliation, trust and loyalty, religious reasons, mystical affiliations, shock value, and self-expression. It can range from the socially acceptable decoration (e.g., pierced ears in many societies) to the religiously mandated (e.g., circumcision in a number of cultures), and everywhere in between. Body art is a modification of any part of the human body for artistic or aesthetic reasons.
