I think you want to tuck it down no matter what, if you don't then urine will leak right out the top of the diaper ;)

Jpmsave,

Jackie Kingsley is no more (or less) than a journalist, of course. She writes well and tries to be neutral, but I sense a bias towards circumcision - especially when she quotes the Masters and Johnson so-called 'study' which was flawed from the outset. See this link, you only have to read the first few paragraphs to understand why.

http://www.noharmm.org/masters.htm

Am I in danger of being considerd a misogynist if I suggest that her opinions are inevitably suspect because she can never know what owning a penis means? I hope not, because I love females! But her implied dismissal of a normal, natural penis concerns me, particularly when she lives surrounded by males with foreskins in a country which does not routinely circumcise any more.

Well, perhaps... but if I may be explicit... one of the first things I noticed after circumcision as an adult, was when I had to 'sit down' on the toilet. I had to hold it down to prevent it showing as semi-erect and the chance of miss-aiming.
