Write to Know - Part 2

This is the second installment of some questions that I have been asked after posting a forum on Men's Health.

Do women prefer circumcised penises? I am not and am considering having it done.:
The ratio of boys circumcised to boys preserved intact continues to decline in America. In 2001, it had further declined to a ratio of 55 percent circumcised, while the percentage of boys preserved intact had risen to 45 percent. (I stole that fact from a medical website)

Turtlenecks are back in fashion.

To ask if women prefer uncut to cut, is like my asking you if you prefer big breasts or a small breasts. It's a matter of taste. If you've received mixed reactions to your fully clothed member its probably because it's not common for women to come across an uncircumcised penis these days. Think about it....when we were sneaking a look at Hustler magazine or watching porn, none of these guys were circumcised. So, imagine our surprise when we pop down south for some oral fixation and find a little more than we bargained for.

I've been with one man that was uncircumcised. I will admit, the first time I came across it I was incredibly surprised and had no idea what to do. I was afraid I would hurt him if I tried my usual tricks and truthfully, I wasn't sure where to start. Thankfully, he acknowledged my hesitation and showed me the ropes. As soon as the flag was flying full mast, it didn't look any different then those who had come before and worked just as well.

This sounds kinda corny, but if you're happy with it, keep it. Just as I have found a man that doesn't care if I have small breasts, you will find someone that doesn't care if you have a little extra foreskin or even better, likes it! It's part of your entire package. If you really want to become circumcised, make sure you pick a respected surgeon who has done many of these types of procedures. Get references and get more than one opinion. Your family jewels are precious and you don't want just anyone going at them.

Should I shave my pubic hair?: My honest opinion....No. Men are suppose to have some hair on their bodies. If you have hair on your legs, chest, stomach and your crotch area is totally free of fuzz, it looks kinda strange. I think that it makes a penis look a little sad. Women do appreciate some grooming in that area. Trimming is definitely a must of you have hairs that are over a 1/2 inch in length or the growth is so dense that we need to use a hair pick to get through. If you require women to keep this area up to par, than you should give us the same courtesy. Nothing is worse than surfacing from a blow job and hacking like a cat coughing up a fur ball

Why do women give up so easy?: I'm not really sure what you mean by this, but I'm gonna hazard a guess and say that you mean why do we give up so easy on a relationship.

It's a case of "been there, done that". If we start seeing the warning signs (phone calls not returned, weird behaviors etc), we just get out. So many of us have had our hearts broken that we jump ship before the relationship starts to sink. It's emotional damage control.

Unfortunately, sometimes the reasons that you're acting a bit funky has nothing to do with us. Men seem to have a wall up when it comes to emotional conversation and communication. If you're having trouble at work, with friends or family, or you're just not feeling yourself PLEASE TELL US. Women can be self centered creatures when it comes to new relationships and we immediately think that any little blimp has to do with us. Giving us the heads up on your current issues will help us navigate through those bumpy, moody waters and we'll just move to the other side of the boat for awhile instead of clipping on a life jacket and leaping off the side.

I have more questions to be answered later on in the week, so please don't be upset if I didn't get to yours today. Please feel free to submit your own via my email link or if you're daring, toss it on the comment board.


  1. Turtleneck? Never heard that one before.

  2. BadAss - Yeah, I can't take credit for that one. I heard it somewhere but can't remember. Oh, well. It's amusing.

  3. No turtlenecks for me yet. I've seen them, but never had to deal with one, so I'm not sure how they work. I'm not going to lie and say it wouldn't freak me out, but I'm open minded.

    Don't shave. Trim! That's my two cents.

  4. Lola: It's a bit like a tootsie pop. Great when you get to the center!!!

  5. I call it a "covered wagon."

    My wife is actually the opposite of the rest of the world. I'm one of the only guys she's been with who are cut! She was actually disappointed at my lack of foreskin, which I think is just bizarre. Who LIKES a covered wagon?!?!

  6. Daddyfiles: The more I hear about your wife, the more I'm convinced that she and I are going to get into alot of trouble together. She is a funny girl!
