I had a brief summer fling with an uncircumcised dude several months ago. I don’t like calling it a “fling” because it makes it seem like I took the whole thing really casually. I didn’t. I actually liked the guy a lot. He was tall, attractive, sweet and genuinely a really interesting guy. He was the first guy I’d ever hooked up with who “got” the whole internet / online / blogging thing. It was one of those situations where you meet someone, and you feel like they already “understand” you — even though you’re practically strangers. You know?
Plus, he had a beautiful penis. The skin was really smooth & uniform in color and texture. He didn’t have really large veins crawling throughout along the surface. He got hard as a rock when he was turned on; it was so long he actually tapped my cervix. And, he was uncircumcised. I’ve developed a slight preference for unsnipped cockadoodledoos because most of my ex-boyfriends and lovers have been Spanish, French, French Canadian, Mexican, Danish and other non-Americans. (Sure, I’ve dated white, Latino and black American dudes, too. But, there’s always something, you know, “missing.” I’m convinced it’s the foreskins and frenula.) Anyway. In the shower together, the fling (past lover? short-term affair?) asked me what size his penis was. “Oh,” I assured him, “you’re big.” His response was, “I guess that’s good to know. I don’t really have a point of reference because I don’t see other men’s penises.”
Straight men typically only see other penises up close and personal when watching porn; so they get “reality checks” from women. “I don’t know if I have a nice looking penis, wondered if you could tell me,” writes a Funky Brown Chick reader who shall remain nameless. “[I]ts not something that comes up when I am having sex. I’ll send you a pic if you dont mind telling me.” I figured: what the hell. I emailed him: “Send me a picture and I’ll let my readers tell you what they think.” He wrote me back. Here’s the photo. [NSFW.] Please share your thoughts. I’ll write more about circumcision tomorrow. In the meantime, please feel free to use the comments section to tell us your position on foreskins and penises in general. Do you prefer circumcised or uncirusized penses? If it doesn’t matter to you, feel free to answer this question: If you and your partner had (or adopted) a baby, would you circumcise them?
