Big thanks for this website.
I was cut as a baby, and so to read about some great men, who are having some problems with what I have felt "robbed" of, is very amazing to me. I'm so sorry that maybe having a foreskin isn't as easy as I had thought. I remember as a four-year-old gathering what little skin I had left, up around the head, and just wishing it would stay there. I now know about restoration, but that seems like a lifetime pursuit. At my age, the resurection will be faster.
After learning the history of circumcision, it was a no-brainer for me to leave my sons intact. Thing is, I really felt kinda inadequate as a father, since I couldn't really tell them how to take care of themselves. I wish I had known about this site. I tried to show them how to start to retract when they were ten or eleven, but since I had nothing to retract, it was pretty lame. Since then, I would ask periodically how it was going, but they never said much. They are late teens and early twenties now, and I still don't know if they can fully retract or not. I would feel really badly if they were having problems and didn't know who to ask. It can be a bit embarrasing somehow. At least they have both expressed their appreciation for leaving them their skin.
I wish that Americans weren't so stupid about foreskin.
Paul & Jim, Keep up the good work. To all you men who are having a challenge, just know how much I admire your determination, and hope for your eventual success.
