felipe: Three weeks ago today I was circumcised. I live in Barcelona in Spain, although I was raised in the UK. I got it done 'cos I had balanitis for 10 years and despite trying every kind of cream and ointment, sex was often painful (especially the next day) and a put off (juts the thought of having a sore dick made me soft). The operation was relatively quick and not at all painful...although I have a certain aversion to knives, the sensation was not very nice, but there was no pain. The only pain I have experienced was during the first three nights and the night hard-ons, as the stitches got stretched a little. However, no real problem. After all the swelling has gone down, (after a week), I have almost healed 100%, and I have started to jerk off again. Actually, I feel like when I was 12, you know, when you first realize what your dick can do!!! It looks so different, and since it is 'bare' all the time, I feel turned on 100% the time! Amazing. So, if any of you are considering the 'cut' don't worry about the pain, the stitches etc., as this is just myth (although there are bad cases i know). if you need it done, go for it!! For the rest, any of you had similar situations? You know, late circumcision (I am 35). If so, how did you get on? How do you feel with your new 'friend'?
