Talk to him: Discuss your concern with him and see if he would consider a circumcision. With regular hygeine, not being circumcised presents minimal health hazard to either of you, although most people are more concerned about the cosmetic appearance.
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
No problem if clean: This is possibly your problem, thinking that a circumcised penis is more normal, cleaner, healthier or looks better. Majority of men in the entire world remain uncircumcised except for muslims, jews, 70% of americans and some african tribes. A clean, easily retractile foreskin should pose no medical problems. Discuss with bf, many men feel that is is more "macho" to remain uncircumcised.
