Andy Cohen on his son's circumcision

For a lot of parents, the decision of whether or not to circumcise their child can be a big one. But not for TV personality Andy Cohen, who only had to look down in the shower.

Cohen, speaking out on the Howard Stern show yesterday, he said: “He is circumcised. I have a gorgeous, circumcised penis and I want him to have the same.”

The topic of circumcision has been a heated on in recent months, after documentary American Circumcision – released last year – argued an end to the practice.

What his son may want is obviously of no importance to him.

by Anonymousreply 602/28/2019

The main reason his son was snipped was for religious reasons, but it does sound a bit vain when he talks about how beautiful he thinks his own penis is.

It's always a tough call. Every man has to make this decision for himself and his kids (the ones he knows about).

Me, I kept it whole. It's not because I hate G-d, you have to understand that; it's because I just love my dick a little more. I even talked it over with my penis and we both agreed that he's gonna stay in charge. It's thanks to my stick that my own son got here, after all.

And spare a thought too for the pleasure of all the poor prostitutes just trying to get paid so they can buy their passports back. Have some humanity.

To my horror, a few weeks ago Youtuber Josh Peck nonchalantly handed over his infant son (around four months old, if that?) for the snip. Poor baby.

I haven't listened to his podcast or looked at his IG since. Disturbing practice. If I were his wife (who fyi is not Jewish or Isra eli) I'd have taken my son and bounced before the question even came up. There's culture, and then there's just ritual torture. What's he going to do, FGM his future daughter too? How can any parent live with themselves doing something like this to a baby, and their own flesh-and-blood no less?

R20, Josh Peck is Jewish. And Jewish boys are circumcised on the 8th day. His son was born in December, so presumably the bris happened a few months ago, not a few weeks ago.

And it's an important tenet of Judaism that Jews have tried to practice even during dangerous times in history. That's why even secular Jews often still have their boys circumcised. It's a tenet which carries a lot of historical & religious significance.

I’ve seen plenty of both and I think it just looks nicer cut. It looks more naked.

Some like their Boxer dogs, Dobermans, and Great Danes with perky clipped ears and some prefer these dogs to have natural flopsy-mopsy ears. In the end it’s a matter of preference.

I must say, the old National Geographics that had group pictures of nude native tribesmen used to look slightly shocking. But since the U.N. has had mass circumcisions of African men in some countries to decrease the spread of HIV, the natives are looking much more naked than they used to.

Stats suggest male circumcision is declining. But it seems female genital "trimming" (with a surgical knife) is slowly building up momentum in the West.

Female genital labia flaps (skin folds) can be unhygienic too - and can be perceive as "ugly".

So now there's a "hot new trend" of females cutting off parts of their labia flaps. I'll send Cohen a brochure in case his next designer toddler is female and in need of a "snippety-snippety trim".

Those few square inches of skin are among the most sensitive areas of the human body. Circumcision in Catholics was instituted to discourage young males from masturbating.

In the end, cut or uncut is a fairly trivial difference. Dicks work pretty much the same, fucking to the same orgasm in both cases. Other factors impact the quality and functioning of any individual’s performance, regardless of circ status, so your mileage may vary in any case. So if you’re unhappy with your sex life i suggest you talk it over with your doctor if you think you have a medical problem. I promise you he won’t tell you your situation is hopeless because you were circumcised.

Circumcision rates have always been low in Europe and Asia (the Eurasian continent) and are DECLINING even in North America:

[quote] “Although routine circumcision emerged in the US around the same time as in Britain and for much the same reasons (fear of masturbation, syphilis and "congenital phimosis"), Americans took faith in the operation to an EXTREME not seen in Britain. At the very time when British doctors had lost interest, Americans were just getting into their stride, and as the incidence of circumcision in Britain FELL to a vanishing point during the 1950s, in the USA it reached new heights, affecting about 95 per cent of boys. Circumcision became entrenched as an automatic part of the birth procedure, and was often performed without the consent even of the parents.

[quote] I don't really understand why Jews do it as a matter of course.

Because Jews and Muslims have traditions that are so old-fashioned they make the Victorians look like modernist progressives.

Toddler circumcision ONLY made sense in Biblical times or in dirt-poor regions. People didn't have running water - or soap - or proper condoms - or good hygiene - or doctors. The general rule back then was that if smthg is 'potentially troublesome' - cut it ALL off immediately "just to be safe". Leg swelling up? - cut it off. Teeth starting to show signs of caries? - pull them ALL out. Today we have dentists who easily fix most teeth, etc, without going to extremes - extraction is reserved only for emergencies. But back then you just took a plier and ripped out all your 'troublesome' teeth "just in case". People had a very 'simple-minded', barbaric approach to health - because they had no other options.

And that is the dark, unenlightened Biblical / Torah time period when this practice was codified into required custom. Same as the outdated rule that Muslims shouldn't eat pork. Well, [italic]back then[/italic] it made sense. Pigs tend to carry worms and people back then had no way of checking them for it. But today that outdated custom is no longer required - we have better sanitation and pig-rearing practices, so people don't need to avoid eating bacon and pork roast.

Same goes for circumcision. Back then (Biblical / Torah / Quran times) people didn't bathe every day. Many didn't even bathe every week. They lived in the Middle East area - a ridiculously HOT climate, with lots of pests, diseases, poverty and NO indoor plumbing. Many worked in the fields and had sweat, dirt and even wind-swept desert sand accumulating in their genital area. They wouldn't always be able to wash it off, especially if the water source was far from their house. So their only desperate solution and "sanitation" practice was to cut off foreskin.

The practice was also somewhat widespread in Africa (an unbearably hot climate like the Middle East).

Now compare that to Europeans and Asians. No widespread history of circumcision. Because the climate is milder and even cold in the northern parts. While the Eurasians obviously sweated too - there was less need to cut off skin folds in a temperate climate. It was mostly a practice developed by populations in unbearably hot climate zones: Middle Easterners and Africans.

So it's a bit ironic that Americans are emulating a traditional custom which originated not with their fellow and ancestral Europeans - but which was promoted by Middle Easterners as a group.

R81, JFK was circumcised in 1935 at age 18.

Those Muslims and Jews must have been retards. I never wash in my foreskin because I love the smell. It never builds cheese or gets irritated or anything and if a guy doesn't like the smell I just use water and it's fine. Never soap. Who are you people? haha. There is no reason to circumcise. People are just used to it. If it was never done and you never saw a cut dick you would never know. I also tore my frenelum completely years ago and when I'm erect I look cut. It's the best of both worlds.

r111 i am a white american. my dad is uncircumcised which is why i am, although under different circumstances since he was a home birth. i've always thought it was weird my parents based their decision on that, and as a result i've associated being uncut with poverty. though i don't have phimosis or anything, i don't like the way uncut looks, and i don't like feeling different... especially as a gay man where it's ALWAYS the first thing a guy mentions when he sees me naked for the first time. i lived overseas for a time where i actually had my longest ever relationship - and all guys there were uncut so go figure. being there taught me how irrational and america-specific male circumcision is, but sadly, it's made me lose confidence back in the states. i am curious r113 how being circumcised as an adult was the best decision of your life? how did it change your psyche? and how did you go about doing it/pay for it?

They mutilate women's labia for religious reason too. Soo funny people get worked up over that but not over chopping off someone's penis skin.

R131 - My experience travelling in the USA was so different - as a well endowed, uncircumcised guy, I was always very popular and desired in the bathhouses, sometimes to the point of an obsession by some for my natural state status. Some guys were quite enthralled by it.

Interesting now living in a Latin American country, when I see the odd American at the bathhouse, and his circumcised penis, it looks odd, and like something is wrong with it. And the lack of interest of hooking up with these guys by the local guys. . .

American men never let you see their cock. Towel dancing, showering at the gym wearing a swimsuit. Now they want to cut off the most sensitive skin on their entire body because it's "prettier"? Color me skeptical.

It looks more naked without the cloaking device.

It's like tattoing among tribes. It's a primitive practice that's traditional, ritualistic, and aesthetically pleasing.

Look how beautiful and supple that foreskin cock looks at R134

by Anonymousreply 14004/13/2019

Suppleness is what I like best about uncut cocks - and its silky smooth head.

by Anonymousreply 14104/13/2019

^^^Yes! Not all dried out like cut cocks. Also, cut cocks get a funny shaped head. It's gross.

by Anonymousreply 14204/13/2019

It's easier to tack on aesthetic or scientific rationalizations to universalise a traditional practice that was historically used to identify them as outsiders than to change the practice itself. Good try, long run, but not cutting it (yes, pun) any longer.

I don’t like uncut!!!!

by Anonymousreply 14404/15/2019

R144 - And like, who cares? It's not like the uncut guys are going to feel they're missing out because some fat, bald, 64 old American doesn't like their penis. You're quite free to only pay for mutilated whores. . .

Andy Cohen is gross.

Cut can be smelly if the person doesn't wash; same as uncut. Last cock I had was cut and smelly; I haven't had sex since then.

It is pathetic that Andy Cohen would use this topic to draw attention to himself. I pity that child. It will grow up with a fucked up set of values.

I am thinking that Cohen and Schockgobbler ought to get together, if they haven't already, but I mean longterm: kindred spirits and all that. But yes, I pity the wee bairn (the more so if those two monsters became husbands).

R138 to whom? Jews,Moselms and propagandized Americans that is. Most straight women and gay guys around the world think that intact cocks are better. Most people would fuck a hot Italian or Spanish guy who is intact over a cut American or Moselm.

Since the only way to see Andy's gorgeous dick is to look at a fake nude photo, I looked and looked for an uncircumcised cock in an attempt at humor. But Andy has not been the target of very talented fake nude artistes, so this is it, at first glance I thought the fake dong was uncut, but after enlarging the photo to 500% I still was not sure of the dick in question's status. Reminded me of a real hot guy I once new who had a "loose circumcision" which was mighty damn attractive. And no offense to either side of this discussion, but I love em both intact and cut.

Orthodox Jews do this insane ceremony where an old man sucks the blood off of the baby penis. Lots of babies end up with herpes. Google " metzitzah b’peh "

Yes, R158, but it's only the Orthodox that do that.

Mainstream Jews are opposed to that.
