That is good enough reason, apart from the fact that other infections, like AIDS and fungal are greatly reduced as well.

I am no expert in religion, but I am fairly certain that God did not command it, and suspect that it was the health benefits that caused it to be recommended, with religion being used as the offered reason.
In genesis 17:10-14 God commands circumcision for the Israelites and all those living with them. Although some Christians also practice it, there is no religious requirement for them to do so.

Re: Are you circumcised?

According to the NCBI stats, 12 nations scored a percentage of 99 or higher on circumcisions.

They were Afghanistan, Comoros, Gabon, Gaza Strip, Iran, Mauritania, Morocco, Tajikistan, Tunisia, the West Bank, Western Sahara and Yemen.

It's probably a test, you know, like when he tested Abraham...

Re: Are you circumcised?

As far as I know, the cultures with high rates of circumcision (muslims and jewish) come from areas with high levels of desert. Many years ago it was difficult in those areas to have enough water to wash properly. That's why it made sense to circumsized because they would have less bacterial and fungal infetions. But nowadays, almost everyone has more or less access to water to wash (especially in North America and Europe), so it doesn't make sense to circumsize unless there are medical reasons behind it in specific cases.

It does not make sense to eliminate penile cancer?

Re: Are you circumcised?

Originally, practice was started in USA mostly to combat masturbation.

Dust, on a mirror turned black,
the refection is flawed, all the mirrors are cracked,
strange how the glass seems to sing.
But the words are like death, they could be anything.
Here we are, win or draw, badly used, badly scored.
Here we are, gone before, in another time.

Penile cancer is reduced - but not 0%, with circumcision. Penile cancer is very rare and due to HPV and lack of cleanliness.

A man is more likely to get breast cancer than penile cancer.

So, for the very low rates of cancer it seems a bit silly.

Circumcision is a barbaric religious ritual. So, unless it needs to be done for medical reasons. It doesn't need to be done.

Unless you are trying to get people to stop that evil masturbating like the guy who also gave us cornflakes.

News to me that circumcision is a cure for masturbation.

Re: Are you circumcised?

I am surprised it is low in Canada. I have never dated a guy who wasn't peeled. I expected the rate to be around 90%.

Doesn't work, huh? Any way, that was the main argument at the time. See The Masturbation Taboo and the Rise of Routine Male Circumcision: A Review of the Historiography

If you clean it properly the penile cancer rate is equal between circumcised and non circumcised.

I remember very well my Urology clerkship at medschool and they always taught us: "A penile cancer you can smell when walking into the office"

Even though rare but also a circumcision can cause serious complications. And it changes the feeling during sex. It is interesting that non circumcised men often have less problems maintaining an erection with a condom than circumcised men.
