    I have no sons, but I wonder how guys circumcised as adults who do have sons, have discussed the matter of circumcision with them. I ask this because I think so many who were circumcised as infants have no idea about the procedure. I am not arguing for infant circumcision pro or con; just want to know how those cut as adults have dealt with their own sons, if indeed they have.

    My sons were RIC but they are still very young. I was circumcised when I was 33 (about a year after my youngest was born). I’m not sure how I’ll explain it to them if they ever ask about it. I’ll probably just give an explanation of what circumcision is and why we had them done. Not sure if I’ll discuss my own circ with them, I probably won’t.

    My folks had my younger brother RIC’d even though I wasn’t and my dad wasn’t either at that time. When I was 12 or 13, my brother asked my dad why his penis looked different. My dad gave us a basic explanation of what circumcision is. He also went onto say that since circumcision is common in the US, they chose to have him cut but since it’s not common in France he (dad) and I were not circumcised. That satisfied our curiosity.

    When my dad chose to have himself circumcised, it was never discussed. Thee only other time I discussed it with my folks is when my wife was pregnant with our first son. My mom asked if we were going to have him done. When I said “yes,” my dad said something like “ good it’s better like that.”

    I debated about putting anything on this but finally managed to get up the courage to do it. I was circumcised while in the Navy and was given (no choice) a high and tight cut. My wife and I loved the sex we had after the cut and were able to get pregnant (for almost three years uncut, no kids). We have three sons and a daughter. All three of my sons were RIC’d and didn’t have the problems I had in Middle and High School as a uncut male. My oldest son has never mentioned it at all but his two younger brothers brought up the topic when they had sex education in High School. Each time I explained the circumstances in which I had grown up and the fact that the Navy had clipped me and that their mother and I loved the sex after the cut and didn’t want them to go through it as adults. They asked a number of questions about sex, masturbation, and sexuality along with the inevitable questions about circumcision. They seemed to accept my answers about that at the time. Both of them are now married and have children of their own. I have never asked them about the status of my grandsons, that is their business not mine. I’m not sure that my wife and I would do the same thing now as we did back then but you can’t change the past.
