Go get it done. I didnt like mine either. I got it done for aesthetic reasons also about 8 yrs ago. When i went to get it done the doctor told me i had chronic foreskin irritations. That being said i would have done it anyway. I like not having a foreskin. Sex is way better. No smell. No more irritations. cosmetically i think a circumcised penis looks better. It certainly feels better. If my foreskin were to magically regrow, i would get circumcised again. You should ask men who have been circumcised as an adult, since they have lived on both sides of this coin such as myself. There is a yahoo group and some websites that give you plenty of information and a list of urologists that perform adult circumcisions. Go to a site called circinfo.net. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
There was absolutely no pain when i had my circumcision done. the only times when there is pain and discomfort is when someone has phimosis and has never had the glans of the penis exposed because it is so sensitive. when i got mine done i took one pain killer the first nite and that was it. Only Tylenol after that.
I was circumcised when I 4 so I can't compare between the feeling of being uncut and cut, being circumcised as an adult when you can make the choice is a very personal decision as it's different for ever guy as to how they like their to penis to look, maybe if there foreskin is tight etc.
I'd say don't rush into it and do plenty of research.
I have friends who have been pleased they decided to get cut as adults but I've heard guys who regretted it.
if you were to go ahead with it take time to find a surgeon with a good reputation and discuss the types of circumcisions tight/loose low/high cuts to be sure it's right for you.
I made the decision to be circumcised about 10 and it was purely for aesthetic reasons, I much preferred the look and had wanted to get it done for some time. Not regretted it for a moment. The process was pretty straight forward the down side being that you can't have sex for about 8 weeks after. The process was simple, under local anaesthetic and I returned to work straight away. What I would recommend is that you do the research and get a good clinic/surgeon, circumcision is less common in the UK than in the States so I would have thought you would have good options. If like me it is something you really want then I would suggest you get it done, as I said I have not regretted it. DM me if you want to chat further.
i did it 5 years ago and never regret it since (well, only after the healing process ended). it was for aesthetic reasons but also because my foreskin was a bit short and sometimes had painful intercourse sometimes. anyhow, now i don't remember how it felt with the foreskin and enjoy the sex. if you had set your mind to do it, do it. just make sure you have a good doctor. there are some blogs online which show you how the procedure and heeling looks like if you need more details.
I have 4 close friends who were circumcised as adults. 3 were due to issues with the foreskin and 1 was purely aesthetic. All are very happy and prefer how they are now to before.
Like you I often thought about it and reading stuff online the vast majority of those warning against it have been cut just after birth and feel they are missing something. I personally feel my foreskin gets in the way sometimes and would prefer to not have it. Those that have been cut later that are not so happy it is usually to do with the style of cut they have so make sure you do research the surgeon and make sure you know what the end result will be.
I suppose if you're sure it's what you want and are prepared to have the surgery then why put it off? Just do the research to make sure you get the look you want. Good luck!
anyway im kind of obsessed with this issue. some cut men told me its better. letting the pee hole free and its better for urinate and more hygienic. when have you been cut
I think that's the clue - 'kind of obsessed'! So was I, and I knew I'd not be happy until I got it done. I'd always preferred the look of the circumcised penis, and (unusually for the UK) most sexual partners have been circumcised. So, after chatting with a number of guys online and in real life who had been circumcised for cosmetic reasons, I had myself circumcised almost 6 years ago. I have no regrets about it - well, just that I wish I'd done it years before!
You may find this useful - I downloaded it many years ago. There is more to it, dealing with the actual operation and outcome, but this may answer your questions.
THE PROCESS OF CHOOSING TO BE CIRCUMCISED.
Here is a conceptual model of the different decision stages when considering to be circumcised.
PHASE 1. BECOMING AWARE OF YOUR UNCIRCUMCISED STATUS
The prompting factors could be:
Cosmetic - Embarrassed by appearance
Medical Reasons- Phimosis- Circumcision is unavoidable- purely a matter of style and functionality.
Peer pressure- An unverbalised emotional desire to conform to group norms
Cultural factors Symbolically displaying kinship in society- similar to scarring and tatooing.
A requirement by a lover.
A critical incident imprinted on the person as a child, -seeing a younger brother being circumcised.
PHASE 2. INFORMATION GATHERING
This stage is very much a personal and a private pre-decision stage where information is actively gathered.
Informal information gathering takes place.
1.Should I or should I not have it done?
2.Comparing yourself with others.
Seriously considering the perceived perception of:
1.Pain and suffering.
2.Agreeing to the seemingly inconceivable act of someone cutting your penis.
PHASE 3. ACTIVELY MAKING THE DECISION
A critical stage is reached when the person emotionally and rationally has to make a decision:
NO - Maybe it is just an erotic fantasy.
For the moment rejected. Rationally rejected but the issue is not emotionally resolved and will therefore re-surface.
Permanently disregarded. Complete rational and emotional acceptance of being uncircumcised.
YES - The conflict is resolved. The person now needs to define how to implement the decision ?
You have lots of opinions here which is great, it does come down to your choice but if you go for it you must be aware of the risks and be prepared to live with the outcomes. All i can say speaking as someone who had a tight foreskin circumcised age 15 that if you are lucky enough to have a working natural foreskin you should treasure it! I have come to accept my circumcised state and love my body etc but if someone offered me a working foreskin I'd bite thier hand off. Everyone is different but I lost a lot of sensitivity when I was cut and whilst I was more comfortable afterwards my glans has lost a lot of sensitivity over time. You need to be prepared for that possibility and also that you may well need lube to masturbate (as I do).
