    We keep hearing "Most guys who are un/circumcised are happy to stay that way" but if you could change your status, would you?

    I wanted to post a more detailed question: -
    - but poll questions have a word-limit of about one line. Let's see how this goes, anyway.

    Good poll.

    Yes I would definitely change my circumcision status to intact - trying t be restoring but having it instantaneous and complete would be nice.

    Judging from the answers so far it looks like 66% of men prefer to be uncut.

    Cut and glad I am. I don't care for foreskin. I like the look, feel and taste of a cut cock.

    As nature intended and happy to be so. I looked into getting cut years ago and decided it wasn't for me.

    I felt this was rather well tended to in your earlier thread- http://www.lpsg.org/29139-happy-with-your-circumcision-status.html

    "I'm not cut and wish I had been 68votes=5.55%

    I'm cut and wish I hadn't been 329votes=26.86%

    I'm not cut and glad of it 329votes=26.86%

    I'm cut and glad of it 336votes=27.43%

    I'm not cut and don't care 46 votes=3.76%

    I'm cut and don't care 114votes=9.31%

    I don't know if I'm cut or not 3 votes=0.24%




    This poll is slightly different from the other one (In a perfect world) because it also asks whether you're cut now. And yes, I know a couple of guys who don't know if they're cut or not. "

    True, though this was devised to answer someone who claimed more guys would get cut if it wasn't for cost, pain, abstinence afterwards, etc. (And equally, more might restore if if wasn't for the trouble and time.) This removes those from the equation.

    I am circumcised and would probably change if I could conveniently. However, I think a lot of lingering over this has been done that shouldn't be. We guys circumcised or uncircumcised should really make the best of what we have. You uncircumcised guys can always be cut but be sure you want to. I tried restoring being really tightly circ'ed and found the process to be a real irritation, tape and all plus the messing with keeping everything attached every time I peed. To much trouble to maintain for a couple of years. I gained enough to loosen things up in about three months. I am happy but would I be if things didn't turn out like I expected after a year or two? Some things come with a high price tag. Enjoy how you are or pay the price only it can be high. For you young guys it might be worth it to do the uncirc process. But remember the only way to undo a uncirc is a circ.

    yes, just like I'd grow my beard out and keep a full thick cock bush, I 'd want a nice thick long foreskin.



    All man and all natural. Some say a skin smells... Bring the musk on, it's part of being a man. While you're at it, suck my thick cock and swallow my load.

    Mmm.

    True, but having separated out where they are coming from, it's a backward move to merge them again - one of these discussions got bogged down with some idiot insisting that circumcision was OK because "most guys are happy the way they are". That would still be true if (numbers just for illustration) 1001 circumcised guys liked it and 1499 hated it, while 500 intact guys liked it and 1 hated it.

    Also, you need to look at the context: intact guys in circumcising cultures who want to be circumcised are in a very diffent position from intact guys in non-circumcising cultures who want to be, and vice versa.

    Look at the ratios of the two: intact guys like it ~3:1, circumcised guys dislike it ~8:5. Therefore, if you want your son to be happy, your chances are much better if you leave him intact.

    Big disclaimer. This is far too small a sample to have any statistical power, and not a random sample of the general population, or even a random sample of LPSG. (I tried this on a UK site, but there were too few circumcised guys to get a useful answer.)

    We do need more answers here. I didn't see the poll when it came up. I'm happy to be intact, though that is no surprise!
