First, to each his own -- some guys like trimmed
pubic hair, some like natural; some guys prefer
beards, some like clean-shaven -- so it's only
natural that some of us would like cut and others
Second, the more guys who prefer cut dicks, the
more uncut dicks are left over for me to go after!

Most guys are willing to live and let live when
it comes to foreskin preferences. But there's one
group out there that actively promotes circumcision
because -- allegedly -- it helps to prevent HIV.
These advocates claim that increasing circumcision
would cut down on AIDS.
Now although I am not an expert in this
particular area, I have been a biologist doing AIDS
research, and I think I know fact from fiction
here. This cutting-stops-AIDS campaign starts from
a true observation but reaches an outrageous,
completely unwarranted conclusion.
It's a half-truth, and half truths are
Yes, in some regions of the world, AIDS
transmission to men with foreskins seems to be
higher than transmission to men without them. But
that's what hygiene, safer sex, and condoms are all
about! Cutting off a foreskin to prevent it from
transmitting HIV is about as logical as cutting off
your balls to prevent testicular cancer.* When a
girl hits puberty should we remove one of her
breasts because she only will need the second one,
and thus cut breast cancer in half?!?
Plus, there are diseases other than AIDS -- and
some are transmitted more
easily if you're circumcised -- genital warts, for
example. Some diseases are more likely if you're
cut, others more likely if you're uncut. And some
diseases are more likely to be passed on to your
partner(s) if you're cut, others more likely if
you're uncut. Which ones? Which are more important?
How does it all balance out?
not cure, of course. If an
organ is diseased it may need removal -- no
Important questions, but there's not enough
space to go into details here. There's an
excellent, unbiased assessment of this question in
of NetDoctor's articles.
In contrast, most circumcisions in the United
States take place with almost NO thought at all:
"Just sign here, ma'am, so one of our Ob/Gyn
interns can earn a couple hundred extra bucks."
When All is Said and Done
So why, after all is said and done, do I still
go nuts when I see an uncut dick? Why, when I
design one of my website logos or buttons, do I
make the dick uncut about 2/3 of the time? Why did
I bother to write all this stuff??
If you're still here, reading all this, it's
probably because you and I agree on several points:
- It's OK to look at penises
- It's OK to photograph penises
- It's OK to think about penises
- It's OK to play with penises
- It's OK to be obsessed with penises
-- to the same extent that it is OK to be
obsessed with any other part of the body (or
topic). Part of our duty as intelligent, moral
penis consumers is to do all of the above without
shame or harm.
And let's face it: There's more to look at,
photograph, think about, play with, and be obsessed
by with an uncut dick than with a cut one.
Everything that's in a cut dick is also in an uncut
dick -- but not vice versa. To put it
penis with foreskin > penis
My interest in foreskins kinda crept up on me.
When I first came out as gay, for several years I
had only played sexually with one uncut guy, and he
had phimosis (an overly tight foreskin), so he
wasn't a fully functioning example of the type. I
didn't have a boyfriend who was uncut until I was
about 40, and starting with him my seriously-dating
partners have been: uncut, cut, uncut, cut, uncut,
uncut. As you can see, it took me awhile to realize
that the jerking-off advantages of a foreskin were
the rule and not the exception. So in my case, I
think the most likely explanation is that my life's
erotic experiences finally added up and reached a
