I have twin boys, almost 16 years old. Both like to play on-line computer games, and sometimes participate in bulletin boards - both on topic and off.
A few weeks ago one of my sons told me that there had been an off-topic discussion on one of the gaming boards (I don't know which one) about circumcision. As an intact teenager, he already has strong feelings against circumcision, and was interested in the responses. He told me that he learned from one of the posters that the foreskin contains thousands of nreve endings (probably something he already knew from experience, but had never seen in print). From his comments about the discussion, it seemed that there was a lot of good, factual information about forekins, and a fair amount of opposition to circumcision, in a group mostly comprised of young males.
My son didn't add to the discussion, but said there were a LOT of posts. Parents who believes that their son will be fine with his circumcision because he'll never know what he's missing might be surprised at where their sons could learn a LOT about foreskins and circumcision!
I was very pleased to learn that the word is getting out there, in a group that most needs to hear it.
