Okay, I realize that similar questions have been asked before but please allow me to explain my situation and my question: I've been having foreskin-related issues (painful phimosis) for a while now and am seeing a urologist on Friday about getting circumcised at last. This, I hope, will resolve my issues. I've also always kindof secretly wanted to be circumcised anyway so this works out well. I'm not without my concerns, however, as any sane man would be. Mostly discomfort and gore post-op. Please help me to get past my fears by reminding me of what I'll be gaining. How has being circumcised (especially if you were done as an adult) benefited you personally? I'm not looking to start a debate of any sort. I respect uncut status and anyone who wants to stay that way. I'm a Mac/Linux user, some people prefer Windows. Many thanks!
