As a resource of circumcised fathers with intact sons, the men listed
below volunteer their time to listen to the concerns of other parents and
expectant parents who face the decision of whether or not to leave their
sons intact. They are especially willing to speak with other fathers and
fathers-to-be, and are available by telephone or e-mail to share their
experiences with making this decision and to answer questions about
raising intact sons. They can help to answer these and other questions:

  • How do I explain the difference between him and me?

  • What do I say if he asks why he's not circumcised?

  • Will my son be OK with a decision to leave him intact?

  • Will my intact son be accepted by his peers?

  • What do I teach my son about hygiene?

  • Which way will my son be "better off" sexually?

  • What if my spouse and I disagree about circumcision?

  • How do I handle family pressure to circumcise?

  • What do I feel about my own circumcision?

  • Will my intact son be accepted by future sexual partners?

Assume that the men on this list will speak
with parents of either gender, unless there
is an (F) after their name, indicating
that they prefer to only speak with other
fathers and fathers-to-be. Because religion
can be a major factor in this decision,
we indicate some contacts who strongly
identify themselves as Christian (C),
Jewish (J), or Muslim (M). These fathers,
however, will gladly speak with any parent,
regardless of religious background.
