A Father's Talk with his Son about Infant Circumcision

I'm not sure if I've posted this link here before but I don't think so. It's an article from the website Restoring Tally where circumcised men are encouraged and aided to 'restore' their foreskins. I was going to post this in the thread: 'What Mothers Must Do for Their Sons' because it's related to the problem of discussing sex with our sons which that thread dwelled upon.

But here is a dad who speaks of his intact son and the conversation he had with him before his son went on a camping holiday with other boys for the first time in his life.

It's a captivating tale which moved me to tears, touching my heart for its selfless, inspiring content from a father who chose to leave his boy intact with his foreskin, despite his own circumcision as a baby.

It's the epitome of all that 'intact' stands for.
