    Shows like Sex in the City tend to severely exaggerate the cultural bias as well. I am uncut, and none of the girls I have been with really cared. In fact, with a lot of uncut guys, you can't even tell the difference when they're erect. When my foreskin is retracted, most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference unless they took a closer look.

    In my experience, blacks and hispanics don't find it odd at all because the circumcision rates are much lower among their populations. It's mostly white girls. But even white girls are becoming more used to seeing intact penises, especially out on the West Coast where the circumicision rate is the lowest.

    In Europe, it's the opposite problem. There is a great deal of prejudice toward circumcised penises.

    You have to understand that the people who post on this board with problems etc. are a small minority of intact men. A clear majority of men on this planet are not circumcised and the majority of them do not have problems.

    The majority of intact men never have problems with retraction etc.

    If you went to a message board about testicular cancer you would find many men who have problems with their testicles. Based on this would you decide that excision of one testicle would be beneficial (since cutting off one testicle halves one's chances of getting testicular cancer)?

    Women can experience clitoral orgasms without the clitoral hood, which is homologous to the male foreskin.

    I think parents must sign a form. Circumcision is still very common according to most surveys. The rate has however, been reducing slightly. This is due to a variety factors. To a small extent, many have realized that circumcision is not necessary. Also, many immigrants come from non-circumcising cultures. For example, in California, the rate is very low because of the high hispanic population. But in the South, I think the rate is still quite high. Also, some insurance policies and state medicaid etc. no longer cover the procedure. Overall I think the rate is around 65% in the U.S.

    Clitoridotomy is no worse than male circumcision. All the different kinds of female circumcision have been grouped together when in actuality, they are very different.

    A Type I female circumcision, known as clitoridotomy, is the removal of the clitoral hood. The clitoral hood is homologous with the male foreskin. It covers the clitoris in the same way that the foreskin covers the glans.

    I agree that the other types of female circumcision are mutiliations (stitching up the vagina, excising the clitoris etc.). But clitoridotomy is no worse than male circumcision.

    I don't think a clidetomy is any worse than male circumcision. All it is is removal of the clitoral hood. That's no worse than removing the foreskin. But it is still considered to be genital mutiliation along with the other kinds of female circumcision.

    Of course, cliterectomies and the stitching up the vagina etc. are acts of mutilation. But people group all the kinds of female circumcision into one.

    Oh I've done plenty of rush hour driving in the the New York city area with my Subaru (manual transmission). It really didn't bother me at all. I guess if your clutch is all messed up that would be aproblem, but if not, it wouldn't really.

    After a while though, manual transmission just becomes second nature and it doesn't feel inconvenient.

    "And speaking of foreskin, what happens to the cut nerves after the skin is cut? Are they still sensitive?"

    The nerves in the foreskin are excised and thus gone. There is no doubt that all the sensitivity of the foreskin is lost after circumcision. The only debate is about GLANS sensitivity.

    Yeah, the F1 transmissions are beginning to make their way into the consumer auto market. In F1s today, they have a manual clutch, which they have to use for starting, but after that they usually just signal the gear change using a button and allow the computer to handle the clutching. The computer is of course very high tech and it can clutch better than any person can.

    But with most tiptronics etc. there is a delay. So after you shift, it'll be a second or two before the gear kicks in. Also, they usually don't allow you to redline. If you're at really high RPMs, it will shift automatically.
