Circumcision predates the religious ceremonies with which it is associated. Are there reasonable cases for and against routine male infant circumcision? I think there are. I don't have a strong position on either side of this discussion. It's one of those intensely personal choices, and I don't think it can be reduced to a simple yes or no answer.

Circumcision removes the most sensitive part of a man's penis. The five most sensitive areas of the penis are on the foreskin. The transitional region from the external to the internal foreskin is the most sensitive region of the fully intact penis, and more sensitive than the most sensitive region of the circumcised penis.
