To snip or not to snip?

A friend of mine is pregnant and having a boy (and, by the way, is the cutest pregnant chick EVER) which means she has to make the agonizing choice: circumcision or au naturale? I was in her shoes four years ago, and it was a tough decision. While some go with circumcision without a second thought, some of us feel that if we're going to bloody up our son's most sensitive organ, there better be a damn good reason for it. So some of us do some research.

This is the funniest of what we discover:

Circumcision became routine practice in the United States as a way to curb masturbation. If you don't have foreskin, you don't have to wash your penis. If you don't have to wash your penis, you'll never discover that it feels good to touch it.

This is the most disturbing of what we discover:

When you tell men this, they say "Um, yeah... right... I never masturbate." I get the sarcasm and sure, I think it's funny. But I gotta tell you, it would be much more comforting if you would follow it up with "...and you still have to wash it anyway."
