Teenage Boys and Circumcision
This survey of teenage boys' attitudes to circumcision has been compiled by regular correspondent JH from postings on the Teen Hut website (which at the time of writing seems to be down). It is intended, eventually, to be part of a much larger study of teenagers and circumcision. The boys surveyed here were predominantly aged 15 to 19, with a few as young as 12 and a few older than 19. Note that the survey participants were self-selected, so the results may not be accurate for the population as a whole.
|Circumcised and happy
||151||27%||Uncircumcised and happy
|US circumcised, happy
|US circumcised, unhappy
|US circumcised, indifferent
|US uncircumcised, happy
|US uncircumcised, unhappy
|US uncirc., indifferent
What these results show us is that overall circumcision has a higher approval rating, both in the US (where it is in the majority) and in other countries where it is in a minority. Equally, the level of serious dissatisfaction is low, whichever sort of penis a boy has. Other surveys have suggested that the majority of teen boys are poorly
informed about the rationale for infant circumcision. With correct
information more of them might be happier.
