...Chances of std transmission (for certain stds) and easier hygiene are the most obvious effects; rates of sexual dysfunctions are not significantly different in circumcised vs uncircumcised men.

Most adults are happy to be circumcised, and as the late dr. Spock said "they feel normal" because the majoriy of us males are circumcised. They know that they will never get penile cancer or have foreskin related problems and never need to be circumcised as an adult. A vocal minority consider circumcision to be mutilation and preach against it, primarily re.Babies who then should decide as adults.

While critics say circumcision decreases sexual pleasure, there are currently no scientific studies to support this claim. In fact, study participants in africa who had been circumcised as adults reported either no effect or increased pleasure.
