    Not sure you really want to start this discussion again. Do a search, there are several other threads on this topic. You will also find that the majority of the nerve endings in the penis are found within the foreskin. So removing it must have some effect, if nothing else in reduction of nerve endings that have the ability to be stimulated at one time.

    Personnally, I prefer Jockey brand boxer briefs. I like the way their pouch is made.

    I think your assessment that they are ingrown hairs instead of zits is probably correct. I have a similar problem and I do not shave my pubic hair (just my shaft and balls from time to time). The curliness of the hairs is what causes the problem. I find that I have less problems if I give myself a "breath of fresh air". Meaning whenever I am at home I am nude, no restricting boxers or briefs, this seems to help. If you have to wear something because you live at home or with others. Try wearing a robe or loose fitting shorts/pants. Also I sleep nude. Another possibility would be to trim instead of shaving, that might prevent some of the ingrown hairs.

    Actually Steve, I did not miss your point. But you did miss mine. Being a virgin does mean something to some people. Therefore, the word does have meaning.

    >Science doesn't prove or disprove anything (something the "intelligent design folks can't seem to grasp). Seems you argued before that facts are proven items. So given your statement. Nothing can be a fact.>But it does cast some fanciful biblical ideas into grave doubt. The idea that the Earth was created 5000 years ago is irrational.Irrational by whose standards. Created 5000 years ago, maybe yes, maybe no. Depends on which biblical definition of day that you use.>That's silly fundamentalist propaganda. Now are you going to tell me that science has proven the Noah myth?Give me one instance where science has proved the Bible incorrect. To my knowledge science has not proven or disproven that Noah existed or not. However, there is pretty good evidence that at least most of the plant was covered by water at pretty much the same point in time.>That's fine. Keep your non-"facts" out of the science classroom.I will if you will. Since evolution is a theory, it is not a fact either. Presenting it as a fact is not being very truthful or for that matter very scientific. Refusal to acknowledge that there are other theories on how the world came about, just because you disagree with them is pretty un-scientific as well.>Religion has contributed absolutely nothing to the understanding of the natural world. There is nothing in the scriptures of any religion atoms, molecules, molecular biology, genes, planets, stars, pulsars, and on and on, ad nauseum. If you're searching for meaning and ethics, religion and philosophy are fine, but they are utter dead ends if you want to understand how the universe functions. It has no mechanism to explore ideas in that domain.Here we definitly disagree. I find the scriptures to be very informative regarding how I should go about studying the natural world. Explaining how I should look at it, how I should study it, that it is worth the investigation, and basically telling me that I am responsible for it and keeping it.>What happens when strong scientific evidence contradicts the bible in a way that even you can't discount? Will you have a major crisis of some sort?Since this has never occurred, do not think so. Do I think I know everything? No. Do I think that what I believe is 100% correct all the time. No. That's why I have faith and why I have to continue to study and understand.>So if I forcefully disagree with you, I'm arrogant. If you forcefully disagree with me you're...what? Don't believe I ever referred to you as arrogant. And I never said you couldn't disagree with me, forcefully or otherwise. I just put forth my beliefs so that others can see information from another perspective. I may not change your opinion, but do not think it is right to just keep silent and not point out where I believe you are incorrect.>From your past postings, I assume you're a fundamentalist Christian, so you feel about other religions the way that I feel about all religions. Does that make you a hypocrite as well?First, I may or may not fit into "fundamentalist christian" Most individuals that fit into my definition of fundementalist christian would actually probably consider me quite liberal. You are correct, I am a Christian; a New Testament Christian to be exact. Also, I may disagree with the teachings of other religions, and even some of my Christian counterparts. However, I do not believe that it is correct or appropriate to attack other religious beliefs, other than point out to the individual what I believe, why I believe it, and support it with scripture. After that it is up to them to either accept it or reject it.

    I am cut and not very happy about it. But given my age it is a pretty normal state for someone in the USA. As stated, at one point like 95% of baby males in the US were cirumsized at birth. It is now down to approximately 60% and lower in some areas, especially the western states.Other than the middle east the majority of the rest of the world does not practice cirumcision. So, on a world view your pretty normal. From a US or Middle Eastern perspective your part of a growing minority.

    I disagree. Many people think that saving yourself for one person, who you will spend the rest of your life with, is the way that it should be done.If you do that you do not have to worry about catching an STD, you don't have to worry about getting ostrasized by having a child out of wedlock, etc.Sexual purity has nothing to do with the physical presence of a hymen.

    Damien, AgreedBy the way SteveA -- The last time I checked, Science has yet been able to disprove any of the items found in the Bible.In fact, any time someone sets out for that task, they wind up proving instead of disproving.Personally, I will take my faith over your "facts" any day. But that is just me.I find science a great way to more fully understand the creation that God gave me.

    Yep, she has 2 pairs. One that is more gel like. The other set that is lighter (just foam).For those curious that cannot figure out what I am talking about. My wife has had a double mastectomy. Luckily we had it done before cancer developed, after many many surgeries for pre-cancerous lumps. Then we went thru reconstruction with breast implants (where we had 2 fail during the process that had to be replaced) and then after about 5 years, we had to have the implants removed because she started swelling up as a reaction to the implants.So, now she keeps her breasts in a box. (4 boxes actually, one for each breast and she has 2 sets.)

    Here is a suggestion. Sorry it took me a little bit to come up with it. When my wife still had breasts one of the things that she used to do from time to time was rest them on my chest. This gave me somewhat of a feeling, at least, of what they felt like. Also, I am not sure that the nipple sensitivity is a lot different than a guys. Meaning have someone lightly caress your nipples or play with them a bit. Should give you a good idea.
