Your thoughts dear readers, on a couple of matters to do with manliness and the like.
Matter 1) Recently some fellow bloggers have brought up that age old debate regarding male circumcision. As much as I don't get it (I mean we certainly don't pursue or condone the female variety) I'd like to hear the apparent for and against arguments, as there seems to be a broad spectrum of views. I sit firmly in the pro-foreskin camp. Although I had no choice in the matter, I see no reason to remove any part of the body. I am still in possession of my tonsils even though in my teenage years they caused me annual torture. As for my foreskin.. Why on earth would anyone wish to remove something that is both functional and gratifying. In my experience, it has helped maintain sensitivity and a silky smooth suppleness to the glans. It's also a remarkable masturbation tool, and lovers can use it in a multitude of torturous and teasing ways, techniques that just aren't available to my cut brothers.
But I really would like to hear the female perspective. Is there a preference and why? And does it really matter?
Matter 2) In this neck of the woods (the U.K), there has been a rather disturbing shift toward the no body hair camp. Left right and centre, more and more men are taking the time, considerable effort and expenditure to undergo any number of epilation treatments. Call me a traditionalist, or just plain daft... but I just don't get it. I understand that a degree of maintenance is required in certain areas, and that those who have excessive hair might feel the need to thin out in part... but really, to devoid oneself of hair follicles is in my eyes just a tad peculiar. But maybe I'm missing something. Maybe I'm showing my age. Has the term man been re-invented behind my back? Have I lost touch with the wider world? Is this really what the ladies want?Please let me know your thoughts on these delicate matters. I've included a photo of myself with foreskin and hair intact. I await response and recommendations with scissors and epilator in hand.
