    I figured it had been a few hours since the last circumcision thread; so, hey, why not start a new one!


    Now in this one I want to know your views on having dear old dad circumcised. Why would you have it done or not have it done?


    If my dad were still among the living, I would leave him as he was.



    (and let's try to keep this civilized)

    If my dad were still living I'd give him hair plugs on his little bald head for what he had done to mine.:eek:

    I'd wait until he was too mentally incompetent to resist and then get it done.

    Just kidding but I like the analogy.

    For some of us, this may be a decision we have to make as our parents grow older. I've talked with a few older men who've chosen to be circumcised very late in life because their adult-onset diabetes allowed more (and more serious) infections under the foreskin due to the change in their urine.

    If your father is uncircumcised and has adult-onset diabetes and has dementia or other cognitive problems, you may have to make this decision for him.

    Even though Im circumcised, my dad is uncut

    Hes always said that he thought a circumcised cock was better looking, more manly and cleaner

    Yeah! I'd probably have him circumcised if he'd go along with it

    I know that he watched me as my cock got circumcised - I know for a fact that I WILL NOT BE DOING THAT WITH HIM - I hate hospitals and surgeries!

    I was a baby due. I was circumcised whilst I was still in hospital after I was born.

    I wouldn't have wanted that for dear dad even if his Medicare would have covered the whole cost. Incidentally, that's one way to bring down the cost of health care: just forget about circumcision, enjoy the natural. The uncut cock has possibilities that are out of reach for the circumcised. I can think of "docking" which I thought my teen friend and I had discovered for the first time in human history. But, we were learning by doing.

    I am cut. My dad is uncut. My dad has expressed to me that he would have preferred to be circumcised. That is why he had me and my brothers cut.

    I am very happy with my circumcised cock.

    I would support my dad if he ever decided to go through with getting circumcised, but I doubt he will at this point.

    My dad had foreskin problems, so he got circumcised when he was in his late teens.

    It's the same whether juvenile (type I) or adult onset (type II).

    Funny that he didn't make that choice for himself then isn't it, but chose that for you.

    If it gets to a point where kids have the power to have their dad circumcised, it means that the dad doesn't that that much longer to live and there is no real point in getting it done.

    aka: before hospitals let you make medical decisions on your parents, the parents have to be pretty near death and incapable of making their own decisions.

    If he has problem foreksin and infectiosn etc, then doctors can make the medical, decision to circumcise him.

    SirConcis, it appears that you're saying medical indications are the only reasons circumcision should be done. I think the O/P was alluding to other reasons, right?

    :lmao: In America it has been the custom for about 100 years to circumcise boys at birth, before they leave the hospital.

    Thanks for the info NCbear. I learn the most incredible things here.:cool:

    If the children have legal custody of their dad, it is because the dad is sufficiently impaired. At that point, children would have to have a hell of a good reason to order their dad to be circumcised unless it were not an obvious and immediate medical problem.

    When someone else gains authority on a patient's life, (such as children on their father), it is because the patient is in grave health. In such circumstances, cosmetic/elective surgery is the last thing a hospital would agree to.

    Now, if a patient has a severe urinary infection and a severe phimosis, the doctors may decide circumcision would be medically indicated. This children may have to sign a consent form, but the request to circumcise would come from the doctor, not from the kids.

    SirConcis, would "keeping it cleaner" or "preventing infection" be reasons to do it? Let's assume, for this discussion, there's no existing medical indication.

    If the kids are given the right to make medical decision for their father, it is because the father's condition is pretty dire. At such a point, elective surgery would not be considered. You don't want to create any wounds on a weak/sick person.

    Now, if the father is still mentally competant, then he will be the one making the medical decisions, and the kids would then have to convince him to choose to get circumcised.
