    :( Poor little guy will have to live with the damage for his entire life. I too am glad the clamp is off the market. I won't say anything else for fear of starting a circumcision war.

    Children are curious creatures. I wouldn't automatically think something bad when reading that. My son used to be curious when I would change his sisters diaper. He would look, get a puzzled look on his face, then ask where her penis was. Most kids peek when a diaper or pull up is being changed.

    I found an excerpted training video in the use of this particular clamp. It only shows two of the steps in using it, but it is easy to see how this could happen with this device. The video is not graphic. It is the one in the box at the top of the page.

    I've done a detailed study of the history of circumcision from a Judeo-Christian perspective. It is interesting to note that full excision of the foreskin did not appear until after the Roman conquest, when young Jewish men would try to appear uncircumcised, and the rabbis determined the full foreskins should be removed to prevent hiding their Jewish identity. Previously, it was a small wound. The religious symbolism is achieved with the flow of blood, not the amount of skin removed. In the Christian era, Christ's sacrifice fulfilled the symbolism so that it is no longer written on our bodies, but our hearts.

    Not trying to start an argument, but sharing a little relevant history I have learned over the years.

    Thank goodness! We have enough hang ups about naked bodies in our culture.

    Let's let 3-year-olds run around naked and then teach them to be really repressed when they are 6.

    That would be awesome - and you are right that cosmetic surgery has come such a long way. The article did say that he will be able to have intercourse, so that's good.

    LMAO! You know me...just trying to start trouble because it's obvious that the Mods don't have enough to do here! :dance:

    I know it's exceedingly rare for something like this to happen during a circumcision. It's so sad though. Call me tomorrow! :)
