  1. So My Lad @ 14 is thinking about it.... I say its all up to you and ( I am glad no one asked me my choice...as I was just 1 month old ) What would you advise you kid. https://ph.she.yahoo.com/is--tuli--really-necessary-022907456.html Is ’tuli’ really necessary? By Dr. Randy Dellosa, Your Online Shrink | Yahoo SHE – Tue, Apr 8, 2014 10:29 AM PHT Summer is that time of the year when multitudes of Filipino boys “shed blood” to become men. No, it’s not in war that their blood is spilled, but in the surgical procedure called circumcision. For some reason, blood plays an important part in the coming-of-age of both girls and boys. Just as a girl’s first menstruation signifies her crossover from childhood to womanhood, Filipino boys undergo the bloody ritual of “pagtutuli” to enter manhood. What is the foreskin? To appreciate what circumcision is, people first need to know what foreskin is: It is the loose fold of penile skin that slides over the penile head to cover it. Contrary to popular belief, the foreskin is not just extra and useless skin. It serves the special purpose of protecting the head of the penis from infections and injury, and it is a highly erogenous area which is as sensitive as the finger tips and lips. Interestingly, the human foreskin is also used in the manufacture of facial skin creams, skin grafts and porous bandages. Styles of circumcision The goal of circumcision is permanent exposure of the head of the penis so that it ceases to be hidden by the foreskin. The two styles of circumcision done in the Philippines include the “dorsal cut” and the “German cut.” The dorsal cut is one short snip of the foreskin, with the snip being as long as the penile head. In the dorsal cut, there is no foreskin removed. Once the cut heals, the foreskin just droops to the sides and underside of the penis as loose skin. Because the dorsal slit is simple and quick to do, this is the style of circumcision commonly done in “operation tuli” or “mass circumcision” events. In the German cut, much or all of the foreskin is surgically removed. Without the foreskin, the penis attains a neater and sleeker look. The German cut however is more bloody, time-consuming and complicated procedure since it involves cutting off the foreskin all around the circumference of the penis. No medical reason Medically speaking, there is no reason to do routine circumcision on males. Circumcision is necessary only when the foreskin is too tight, thereby resulting in the following problems:
