    I'm really curious about this and a bit confused. My dad and guys in his generation that I see in the gym are cut, but you get down around my age 21 and there is tons of foreskin - especially the teens and kids who come in with their families. I'm in BC.

    I'm uncut and most guys around school or that I hang out with (that I know about) have foreskin. I was chatting with a guy from Winnipeg and he says it is just the opposite (he's 18).

    What are your observations? I have heard Ontario is largely cut, so it must vary with region.

    Where as, I think it just depends on the parents. For example... IN my immediate familiy, my brother and I are uncut. However, 4 of my male cousins are cut and the rest are uncut.

    As an Ontario man for my entire life, I have yet to see a set observation. IN the locker room, we were mixed. Same with at the gym and in University.

    I'm from Winnipeg, i'm cut, and 98% of my friends are as well... something we have talked about believe it or not.

    If you are in Quebec, you will find that a big percentage of guys are uncut...don't have figures but in the locker room uncut dudes seem to predominate.

    I imagine that the francophone areas would be largely uncut, reflecting the European attitude and traditions.

    As with Australia, many of the other areas probably went through a circumcision fashion after WW2, which has reversed over the last 15-25 years as people came to realise that routine circumcision could not be medically (or ethically?) justified.

    I'm from NB in Canada and I'm uncut. I should check some cocks in my gym locker room at Quebec to check if they are cut or not.

    I've noticed an age difference in Ontario. If you're over 30 and anglo you're probably cut. If you're under 30 you're probably not. Someone told me that around 1980 the government delisted it as covered under health insurance and so very quickly the circumcision rate plummeted. At around the same time the Canadian Paediatric Association listed it as an unnecessary procedure.

    Of all the people I know having babies right now not a single one is even considering circumcision.

    Roughly half of my Canadian teammates were cut (well, uncut too I suppose lol). They were born all born from the very late sixties to the mid seventies.

    I'm from Quebec, and an anglo and i'm uncut. I would say half of my friends are uncut, and more french canadians are circumcised than you would think. Also knew two couples who had kids and both planed on circumcising their kids

    That's almost exactly the same as my experience in Australia.

    Someone once told me that in Australia you need foreskin for sunscreen; in Canada you need it for warmth.

    I hate winter.

    (Sorry for not being right on topic. I really hate winter.)

    That's how the tough guys in Oz do a self-circumcision: if your foreskin gets burnt enough, it peels off by itself ;-)

    My Master is a native Torontonian and is intact. I came from the U.S., though, and he's the first lover I've ever had who was not circumcised.

    I have no idea about other Canadians -- haven't gotten a chance to get out on the streets and pants some people. I'll have to do that. :tongue:

    Great. Let me know what you find. In the meantime, you can come to Vancouver, pants us, and retract our foreskins. It happens all the time.:biggrin1:
