Hey buddy...no worries. I'm not sure about outside circumstances surrounding the issue -- like how close you are to your parents, how comfortable with "that kind of talk", etc. -- but I asked all my friends for you: the answers? Most said for cleanliness, some said for religious/cultural reasons and one said for a medical reason...his foreskin was so tight that it wouldn't retract. But ALL said they asked their parents. I asked my mom and my family is NOT close or open to stuff like that! But she told me it was for cleanliness mostly, but my dad was and so they both thought they should. My friends just had a baby and the father is cut, but they decided it should be up to their son when he's older to decide for himself. There's so many reasons to do it....do you want yours or not want yours? I would call my doctor and ask him...if he didn't deliver you, then ask him to find out, even if it's secretly from your mom or dad....OR if you know your dad's "status", then ask him...or just tell your parents that you're "different" then others and wondered why. It'll be fine! Hang in there kiddo! grinPS...you wanted a novel, right? :S
Shhhh....my rice cripies are trying to say something!
