Ok, this is more a plea. And I do recognise that circumcision is sometimes necessary.
Irretrievable damage can mean that a foreskin must be removed. But before you consider it, read about sexually mutilated children.
The operation removes a huge number of sensitive nerve endings, removes sexual sensation, sometimes damages the underlying penis structures, and is exquisitely painful. And it's done to children in religious ceremonies with no anaesthetic, with them held struggling to be brave, in public forums. If you have to be circumcised, or if you choose to be circumcised, then ensure that the surgeon does not remove your frenulum. Be very specific when you sign the consent form, for removal of the frenulum will cripple your sex life. And if you are a circumcised man with no frenulum, then you have a possible negligence case against your surgeon.
