Today, my girlfriend gave me a choice of having a circumcision or breaking up with her. Either way I'm going to lose something I hold dear. FML

Lose the girl. It's one thing if she wants you to change your hair style it's another thing entirely to chop off a piece of your dick for no valid medical reason.

Agreed. You can find a better girl. You shouldn't have to be in a relationship where there are ultimatums, especially ones that involve unnecessary surgery.

^this. Ultimatums are the worst kind of thing to throw around in a relationship, and honestly, if she thinks "get a medically unnecessary modification to your genitals or I will leave you" is an okay thing to throw at you she needs to go

Actually, there is a medical reason. It is harder to maintain cleanliness down there. With a little extra work its fine, all but it is a medical problem. I work in a ER and we have kids come in every so often because they are uncircumcised and have infections down there. She shouldnt leave him over it and he should ditch her for not accepting him the way he wants to be but I wanted to clarify the medical thing.

Tell her you'll get one if she does.

Tell her that you'll do it if she has a labiaplasty. See how she likes it.

you do know that's not the same thing as female circumsicion right? some women choose to have their vaginas reguvinated which includes a vaginoplasty and a labiaplasty to make it all look nice and new and shiny. not the same thing.

Semantics. Either way, (in this specific scenario) you're cutting off a bit of your genitals solely so that your partner doesn't leave you. Surely we can agree that that's utterly fucked, yes?

Why would she want you to cut your foreskin off? I mean unless it's causing you a health risk I wouldn't do it. No relationship is worth that pain.

maybe for religion?

If it was for religion he would have done it when he was born. If it's for her religion, tough luck. That doesn't mean he should get it done.

It's your body and your decision. Talking about preferences would be one thing, but an ultimatum is never healthy in this regard. If a piece of skin is more important to her than everything else about this relationship, you're probably the only one in this arrangement who holds it dear.

She sounds like a loser. Ditch the bitch.

I kinda have to agree with them. However valid her reasons may be for you to get a circumcision (health, sexual pleasure,...) if she's making you choose between that and her, and you were to choose her, she's got leverage on you for your entire relationship. What she wants or you lose her. Plus let's look at this objectivly, if she's willing to dump you over this cosmetical little issue, she doesn't value your relationship much now does she....

About sexual pleasure, if anything circumsion diminishes it, it doesn't increase.

As far as sexual pleasure goes, it's better for both with the guy intact. There is only a cosmetic issue in the US. Pretty much everywhere else in the world doesn't mutilate children for no reason.

I married an American, with conservative(ish) Christian parents, and I remember asking at some point early on, in a nervous way, if he'd gotten circumcised, and he replied - equally nervous - that he hadn't. Which came as a huge relief to me - and my relief came as a huge relief to him, because he'd been teased for it in school and he'd had previous girlfriends pressure him to get a circumcision. His mum apparently decided she would let him make the choice when he was older. Phew.

Exactly. My King is in tact and he's the only black man I have met who is. We live in the US but I never had an issue with it. The sex is better. And I'm really happy because if we have a son I don't have to worry about arguing about not mutilating my kids genitals.

Don't lose your head, you can always find another, less controlling woman.

DON'T DO IT OP! Natural is beautiful and any judgmental woman who wants you to mutilate yourself isn't the right one for you. Losing sensation in your part isn't worth some woman.

Come on it's not that beautiful.

a dick is never beautiful, the women get the good looking parts.

Why does she want you to do that? Maybe there are issues with cleanliness and if so...yuck! Clean under the foreskin well!
