It's normal...: Every man or boy, who has ever set foot on planet earth, is or was uncircumcised. This goes way back, to the very first baby boy, so many thousands or millions of years ago. It's normal to be normal (uncircumcised), although a guy can run into problems if his foreskin is too tight or if he doesn't wash his penis properly. Like brushing teeth, good hygiene habits should be taught in childhood.
