I agree this should be off-topic.
Look I think most American men are circumsized, obviously not by choice. This may be a moral or political issue, but moreso on a "parents" forum, not this one.
In terms of seduction, you're either circumsized or you're not, and there's nothing you can do about it. (well I guess you can but adult circumcision seems like its never attempted or desired).
It's irrelevant to debate the ethics of it for seduction - actually not even that, I don't think anyone is even taking up the contrary position here.

"I'm Not Missing Anything by Being Circumcised;Why Should I Restore?
With no accurate means of comparison, the typical circumcised man does not know what he is missing. A man, colorblind from birth and thinking his sight is normal, might also never question his condition. However, as a man ages, he loses sensitivity of the penis. Many men have difficulty achieving sufficient stimulation to reach orgasm. The foreskin is a definite asset in maintaining this sensitivity.
Foreskin restoration is a logical process of returning the penis to as close to its original condition as possible. However, it can be frustrating, time-consuming and care must be taken not to use undue force.
While the majority of circumcised men are unconscious of, or deny any negative feelings about circumcision, a significant number in the U.S. and around the world are aware of their feeling of loss, resentment and betrayal by parents and anger over this violation of their bodies.
When one understands the anatomy of a normal penis, the structure and function of the foreskin, the historical and cultural context of circumcision and the truth behind the myths, one can better understand men's feelings and motivations for restoration. Our message to men is that it is acceptable to care for our bodies in this way.
The Foreskin is a Normal, Healthy and Beneficial Part of the Penis
The foreskin consists of at least three structures: an outer foreskin, inner foreskin and the frenulum. It begins as far back as the shaft midpoint, covers the glans (head of the penis), and can extend beyond the glans. The frenulum (similar to that which is under the tongue) connects the foreskin to the underside. The foreskin and glans are joined by a common membrane and separate gradually. For some, the process is not complete until puberty.
The Purpose and Function of the Foreskin
Protection. The foreskin protects the sensitive glans throughout life from adverse conditions, such as the abrasiveness of clothing. Without the foreskin, the glans becomes dry and calloused and desensitized.
Pleasure. The foreskin is a unique structure filled with delicate nerves and a rich blood supply. The foreskin enhances sexual pleasure, especially as it glides over the corona (ridge of the glans) during sexual activity.
Sensitivity. The foreskin is a highly nerve-laden structure, containing approximately 10,000 nerve endings. It is this structure that gives the man his most pleasurable sensations. It also helps to retain glans sensitivity. Circumcision removed this structure and over time sensitivity decreases, making it more difficult to achieve satisfactory stimulation.
Lubrication. Much as the way your eyelid lubricates and protects your eye, the foreskin keeps the glans moist and sensitive. This effect is helpful during sexual penetration as the penile shaft glides within its own skin sheath rather than directly, chafing one's partner. Without the foreskin, many couples need additional lubricants.
Privacy. Like the female clitoris, the glans is designed to be a protected internal organ, exposed only when aroused.
Why Men Restore Their Foreskins
Pleasure. The new foreskin adds pleasure to the penis during sexual activity. For most men seeking restoration, this alone is reason enough to restore.
Protection. The foreskin protects the glans from the abrasiveness of clothing. When protected, the glans will regain much of its original sensitivity.
Privacy. Like the female clitoris, the glans penis is intended to be an internal organ, visible only when aroused.
Aesthetics. 85% of the world's men feel an intact penis is normal, natural and attractive.
Wholeness. When seeing their circumcision scar, many men sense that part of their body is missing, which is very similar to women who have had a breast removed. Seeking physical and emotional wholeness is quite natural.
Emotional pain. When feeling hopeless over their unchosen circumcised state, men can be helped to manage anger by doing something about a condition which they had always believed was irreversible.
Resentment. A 1991 survey of 301 males seeking restoration information showed that almost 70% of those circumcised as infants or children resent their parents for their circumcision. Regaining power over their bodies reduces resentment.
Empowerment. Victims of rape, crime and child or spousal abuse typically report a deep sense of helplessness and vulnerability. Who is more helpless and vulnerable than a restrained newborn having part of his penis amputated? Men restore to take back control of their bodies from the damage done by parents, their physicians and our culture.
Restoration isn't sought only by those circumcised at birth. Some children are unwillingly circumcised. Others are pressured "for their own good" by friends, sex partners, or military. Some immigrants circumcise themselves or their sons "to be American." Afterwards, most males note a marked decrease of sensitivity, which lead some to restore."
Very homo, no homo... now the advantages of being circumcised are, imho:
1- less polarizing to most women... - some women will not suck a dick of a guy not circumcised...
2.- following #1 the correlate no circumcised with bad hygiene, specially white american woman..
3.- circumsized more aesthetic penis (NO HOMO SERIOUSLY, STOP JUDGING)... In before dude come out with a homo joke (my bad he already did)
In general you are stuck with what you have, and if circumcised you really would not be aware of any loss.
Someone like myself who had to have it done mid life for medical reasons.
Huge loss of sensation that I can never get back.
And man it was painful.
6 months before healed properly.
Wish I'd been done at birth so that I didn't knows what I was missing.
"I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail." -- Maslow
Of course I don't know anything about your situation or where you were born, but over here we have an epidemic of premature forced retraction of young boys foreskins. The doctors tell the parents you have to rip the fused foreskin from the head and scrub it out, that causes scarring, infection and sometimes problems with phimosis later in life. Then that gets used as a scare tactic to promote circumcision.
Believe it or not, I talked...face to face... with a medical student in Washington DC who was training to do circumcisions... She didn't even know that the foreskin was physiologically and naturally fused to the head of the penis upon birth and naturally separates later in life, she was completely dumbfounded. I will never forget that conversation... These are the people telling parents there's something wrong with their son's penis if it doesn't retract and causing the very issues that lead to circumcision. Sad really... The organization Doctors Opposing Circumcision has written quite a lot on it.
"The further a society drifts from truth, the more they will hate those who speak it" -- George Orwell
Chess master, you are quite correct.
The medical people know little about it.
I did quite a bit of research before having it done and discussed alternatives with a few doctors.
They suggested my situation was such that circumcision was my only choice.
Upon further study, I believe this may not have been the case.
If I knew the loss of sensation I would suffer, then i would have looked quite a bit harder at alternatives.
Is anybody not getting laid due to this? If not, maybe that's why it's banned. Too much politics, philosophy and bs, not enough seduction.
See here, circumcision helps prevent HIV:
It also helps protect against most STD's , other infections, and lots of other diseases
30% reduction in herpes and HPV, protects against loads of stuff
See here for a brief overview:
Show me that non circumcision helps prevent HIV or STDs and then youve got a real case...
From a seduction point of view, its better to be cut...if your fucking a lot of women, chances of STDs is way way higher and if your uncut your playing massively with your health
No chick wants to feel your dick if youve got that cheesy smegma crap on it..thats disgusting
And plus if you touch your dick all day (like I do..I touch my dick all the time, whether im with a woman or not), it helps to be super clean..with a circumcised dick I never have to worry about my dick getting dirty - its so much cleaner than worrying about cheesy shit building up and constantly have to clean things
Here is the message I received today from hangman: "You mentioned a Monogamous relationship in the Relationships forum whilst you keep posting that you sarge other girls. What a troll..."
I will tell you that hangman, I sarge for fun, like it or not.
