Hi wkd,

Just like you I am from the UK and cut. I was done at birth, so growing up when I knew someone else was like me I tended to try and be friends with them as we had something in common. I am still good friends with one of the other cut guys and in touch with many. There were at least 3 in my primary school class and perhaps 15% of my secondary year - that I was aware of anyway!

I have also got several friends through work that are either Muslim or Jewish, so I would say that I probably have a good percentage of close friends that are circumcised. Definately well above the national average anyway, which is pretty low to start with.

None that I know of, except a few jewish guys. It's an alien practice to most europeans, and has been seen as such for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks were very proud of their foreskins and saw them as a distinguishing mark from the barbarians of the east (Persia and Egypt, long before Islam). Christianity only spread in the Roman empire once the requirements to follow kosher and be circumcised were dropped.

It's long been a mystery to me why circumcision became routine in the States (and apparently in Australia too).

Three of my school year were cut, all RICs, out of around 80 of us. At college I had one mate who was circumcised as a teenager. Since then, apart from those of the above that I still keep in touch with, I have one mate who was cut at birth (as were his three brothers - he doesn't know why as the family were not religious in any way). Having worked in a multicultural environment, with a number of Jewish and Muslim guys, I would assume that there are others in my social circle but it's not a subject that I've ever broached with them, as they are work colleagues rather than close friends.

Looks like you guys in the UK have a lot of catching up to do. It's cool being circumcised. I wouldn't want to be the other way. Because I have been that way and I prefer the circumcised way. I'm glad to be rid of my foreskin.

That is logical if you had your op done in later life for medical reasons.

It is most certainly NOT cool to be cut unnecessarily. It is child abuse

Yeah. All the kool kids are doing it.
Great reason to have half the skin of your penis removed.
You call that catching up? There's a euphemism for you.

I'm 36 and grew up in the South Wales valleys. I was circumcised, at the age of four, due to a pretty severe phimosis. Circumcision isn't exactly the "norm" around here (especially in the 1980s, when the area was even less culturally diverse than it is today) and of a sports class of about twenty boys: I was the only one that was circumcised. At the time, I was self-conscious about being "different": especially after the initial teasing I endured, but this soon gave way to curiosity.

Of all my friends (both from school and out of school), I remained the sole Roundhead, for many years. It wasn't until I reached adolescence when one of my mates developed phimosis, at the age of 15 and had to be circumcised. As an adult, I later discovered that several more of my friends have been circumcised in the past few years: again, all due to phimosis.

Very rarely, do any of these friends express any negativity toward being circumcised. On the contrary, the general consensus is that they wish they had the surgery much sooner. My one friend, who was cut at 15, is certainly the most vocal about this: as I distinctly remember him being doubled-up in pain and being virtually unable to urinate, for several weeks, prior to him being circumcised. He was terrified of going to the GP and equally afraid to speak to his parents about his problem. Although the surgery left him free of the excruciating discomfort he had been suffering; he has frequently stated that being examined prior to and after his surgery, was deeply embarrassing to him, as a teenager and that his experience could have been avoided had he been circumcised when phimosis had first been diagnosed when he was much younger.

I was told 6% of the UK male population are circumcised when i was in hospital having mine done.

ICBW but I believe that I read that it was about 1-2% done in infancy by the NHS these days, whilst the remainder are later-life circumcisions or ethnic/religious circumcisions and circumcisions previously performed abroad on immigrants, but the figure that you quote is about right, albeit at the lower end of those that I have seen in recent years.

I began my military training with 11 other lads, and we were all naked by the end of the first day to shower as a cohort. There were 2 guys who were cut then, and I was circumcised soon after we started. My 'unveiling' led to a discussion in the showers as to the pros and cons of being circumcised, and a few of the guys openly looked at my dick and asked about the operation. With the other 2 guys who were already cut we had quite a big discussion about it with everyone comparing etc. Turned out one man was cut at birth and the other aged around 8. Both had fairly loose cuts with a bit of skin bunched up against the helmet, as opposed to mine which is pretty medium and loose enough to move up and down but with the skin stretched out.
It wasn't a big deal as we had all been taught how to wash ourselves in the first couple of days of training. Our instructor demonstrated how to wash out of a tin by standing naked in front of us all, but he was circumcised and he asked for a show of hands as to who wasn't cut like him. So he demonstrated how to properly clean the foreskin by getting an uncut lad up to the front, who stripped naked and then the instructor washed his penis, showing the rest of us.
In my service since I've seen both cut and uncut. Think those of us who are cut have the best deal, as it is easier to take care of.

I find cut British guys fascinating because of their rarity just as an uncut American guy is rare and fascinating. I once hooked up with a British guy in Kenya (he was white) and he was cut. I wish I had asked him about being cut. He had come to Kenya as an adult and hadn't lived there long, so being there wasn't the reason he was cut.

I'm from the UK and cut. I'm the only one of my friends who is circumcised. At school, there was one other guy in my class who was cut. Seems we are a bit of a rare breed...
most of the guys I was at school with had juicy foreskins, just a couple of mushroom heads, my preference is for uncut, find the French have a lot of uncut as well, but Americans, must be to do with the settler influence, most are cut - still taste good but not as good as uncut

No it's not child abuse. I had it done for cosmetic reasons. I wish it had been done at birth. I haven't heard complaints from my friends here in the US about it. They prefer it that way.

It depends very much where you live and the social group that you're in as to how many circumcised guys you meet in the UK. You'll find a number of threads on this same subject that have been posted over the years on here.

I grew up in a white, lower middle-class, Anglo-Saxon environment. My closest childhood friend was circumcised at birth. As I've mentioned elsewhere, by the time that we left school there were two other guys in our year that had been cut, out of a year group of about 80 (I also knew of a couple of others, outside that group, from conversations). At college, however, I only knew one mate who was cut - surprising, despite it being more of a social "melting pot" than my earlier years. Later, working in London, in a much more diverse social group that included guys from wider religious backgrounds and from around the world, including several Jews and Muslims, a few Americans and a fairly generous number of Australians, I found myself with quite a few circumcised mates.

I have observed through various social media and web forums, however, that even amongst traditional British groups of Anglo-Saxon origin there seem to be some "hotspots" where there tends to be a greater preponderance of circumcised white, British lads: for example in parts of West Yorkshire, East Lancashire and of the South Wales valleys. Some of this can, maybe, be put down to exposure to other cultures and religions (e.g. the higher Muslim population in the Bradford area, or the Bury/Bolton/Oldham/Rochdale areas) that perhaps makes it a personal choice - I don't know for certain, just speculating!

Generally, though, even from my childhood years going back to the 60s, it's very uncommon to find many UK lads, outside of the circumcising religions, who have been cut.

At my grammar school (wide rural catchment area of about 20 miles radius; late 60s) there were 6 lads in my class of 30, and another three that I knew of in the parallel class. (Naked PE/games showers three times a week.) All done before coming to the school, so no idea why. But several came from the same town, so maybe there was a circumcising GP there! One of the others had had an American father, so that probably accounts for that, and one was done when his parents took him out to Aden 'as it was more hygienic'.

Much more difficult to know about friends since then, unless the topic arises, though several are, for a number of reasons. (One who I thought was is not: he just has a very short foreskin that pulled itself back when he was 16!) On the other hand, of sexual partners, I would say 50% were circumcised - pure chance! I belong to a naturist swimming club, with a fairly high age profile, and I would say that 50% of the regular attenders are circumcised.

The majority are uncut. I know of 4 that are cut, they all like being cut and are quite proud of it.
