Who performs Jewish circumcisions?

Circumcisions of Jews are done by a Mohel (or by a Mohelet if the Mohel is a woman). A Mohel is trained in the ritual of circumcision according to the precepts outlined in classical Rabbinic texts. A Mohel is someone trained in the halacha (Jewish religious law) and medical procedures in order to be able to perform the circumcision to the highest standards, but he is not necessarily a Rabbi. The Mohel performs the ritual of brit milah (circumcision) on the baby boy eight days after he is born (unless there is a problem with the infant's health, in which case it is done at a later date).


Can you have kids if you get your foreskin cut off?

Yes you can, However you will have far less pleasure in the sexual act of producing the child without one. the foreskin is an important and pleasurably sensitive part of sexual intercourse. while there is no advantage in the removal of the foreskin on the penis. this operation has no effect on the fertility of a male.


How long can you wait to get circumcised?

A man can be circumcised at any time, but keep in mind that circumcision is not necessary. Circumcision has no known medical benefits, and no major medical association recommends routine infant circumcision. Circumcision caries with it serious risks of adverse outcomes including prolonged bleeding, infection, severe pain, and surgical error that can result in damage to the penis. For these reasons most physicians recommend against circumcision.

Circumcision can have long lasting consequences. Circumcision removes a normal part of the penis that functions to protect the glans of the penis. Removal of the foreskin can cause decreased sensitivity of the penis and decreased pleasure during sexual intercourse. This is yet another reason why circumcision is becoming increasingly uncommon. If the procedure is committed on an infant there is a real risk of post traumatic stress syndrome brought on by the excruciating pain, with outcomes like lack of bonding with the mother and behavioral problems later in life.

Circumcision is far less common now in the United States than it once was. During the 1970s and 1980, around 80% of male infants were circumcised in the United States. A study conducted in the United States from 2005-2007 found that circumcision rates had fallen to below 40% in most of the United States. In the western United States, fewer than 25% of infant males were circumcised in 2005-2007.

today the practice is still marketed strongly in the USA by a medical fraternity that is making billions a year from it. not only in charging for the procedure to be done on infants. but also having an industry that comes with repairing resultant botch ups. But it is quite likely that the high price the tissue (prepuce) for skin production and the production of hormones used in the cosmetic industry might also have a lot to do with this procedure being advised to naive parents.

Can you get smegma if you're circumcised?

A natural intact penis and for that mater vagina as well always produces smegma. However the in the case of the penis where the prepuce has been cut away there is not the ability for it to collect except directly under the glans and around the frenulum where there is not the constant friction from clothing.

"Infant Smegma: Skin cells from the glans of the penis and the inner foreskin are shed throughout life. This is especially true in childhood; natural skin shedding serves to separate the foreskin from the glans. Since this shedding takes place in a relatively closed space with the foreskin covering the glans the shed skin cells cannot escape in the usual manner. They escape by working their way to the tip of the foreskin. These escaping discarded skin cells constitute "infant smegma."

"Adult Smegma" ... Adult smegma serves as a protective, lubricating function for the glans." ("Care of the Uncircumcised Penis," American Academy of Paediatrics, 1984)

"An infant's glans is very delicate and can be seriously irritated by urine. The foreskin acts as a cover for the glans and produces smegma for a protective coating." (p. 55) / "As to smegma, the normal secretion produced under the foreskin, Gairdner claimed that this substance protects the glans. This is particularly important if wet diapers are left on too long, since decomposition of the urine can cause irritation of the glans if it is not coated with smegma." There is not a shred of evidence to support to theory that smegma is carcinogenic..All animals produce smegma, and none is circumcised. When mammals reproduce, smegma is deposited. If smegma contained a carcinogen or even an irritant, then the propagation of the species would be jeopardized. No such phenomenon exists. Circumcision: An American Health Fallacy, by Edward Wallerstein, Springer Publishing Co., 1980)

You are having problems changing the belt on your Craftsman sander model 315.11720 any advice?

Take and set the sander on end with the cord down. The, with both hands, push the front roller towards the boc that sits between the rollers. You will hear a click. That takes the tension off the belt. Remove the old 3x21 belt with a new one. Now, while this sound strange it is what the manual suggests, take a large screwdriver and place it between the black front roller bracket and the square housing that sits between the two rollers and pry so you are pushing the pront roller back into position. You will hear another click and the spring will reposition the front roller and put tension back on the belt. Then, run the sander and turn the knob on the other side of the sander until the belt tracks correctly.


If you convert to Judaism is circumcision mandatory?

There are four main branches of Judaism. They all believe the same things but to different levels of observance:

  • Reform - Least observant, but still spiritual.
  • Conservative - Mix between Reform and Orthodox
  • Orthodox - Strict observance of the laws of Judaism
  • Hasidic - Very strict observance of all the laws of Judaism

Some Reform groups don't require male circumcision as part of the conversion process, but this is a minority attitude. All others, including most Reform congregations, include circumcision in the conversion process.

2) Mohels perform circumcision, but doctors and rabbis can also be trained as mohels.

Can a 2 year old get circumcised?

Yes. He can, but why should he want you to do it to him? Did you explain to him that It is intended to damage his penis that will lead to less sexual enjoyment when he is an adult, and it also reduces the pleasure felt by his partner as well. Despite what your doctor may tell you, there is VERY seldom a medical reason to cut a boy's foreskin off, any problems which do arise are almost always cured by less drastic treatments. Did you know that there are thousands of specialised nerves in the foreskin and that they are there for good reasons, and all are lost if your son is genitally mutilated. The ONLY person who should decide to have the operation is the person who has the penis, and only then if they are an adult, and they know exactly what they are doing. Once it is gone, it is gone for ever.
