As a man considering circumcision, you must keep in mind always that this must be your decision. Nobody has the right to make it for you. It may be difficult not to listen, but if you make this decision without emotionally “owning” that you made the choice yourself your relationships with the people whom you feel made it for you may be stressed.

This is not to say that you cannot include another person’s feelings on the matter in your decision. In my case my wife’s opinions about the subject, and about my uncircumcised penis, played a large factor. But, if you don’t have reasons why you want it yourself, chances are that you aren’t the one who wants it, and you aren’t yet ready to make this decision despite its positive nature.
