And also the frenulum is not the foreskin.

While the other user hasn't explained why it is relevant, they are correct in that it is relevant. This is because circumcision usually removes the frenulum, or at least a large chunk of it. And it's downright criminal because the frenulum is very sensitive. What little left I have is the most sensitive part of mine.

It’s not really true to say science shows that the foreskin is erogenous or even that circumcision affects sexual pleasure.


"The glans of the circumcised penis is less sensitive to fine touch than the glans of the uncircumcised penis. The transitional region from the external to the internal prepuce is the most sensitive region of the uncircumcised penis and more sensitive than the most sensitive region of the circumcised penis. Circumcision ablates the most sensitive parts of the penis."


"This study confirms the importance of the foreskin for penile sensitivity, overall sexual satisfaction, and penile functioning. Furthermore, this study shows that a higher percentage of circumcised men experience discomfort or pain and unusual sensations as compared with the uncircumcised population. Before circumcision without medical indication, adult men, and parents considering circumcision of their sons, should be informed of the importance of the foreskin in male sexuality. "


Heads up, that source is written by Brian J. Morris, who is rather infamous having a circumcision fetish, and has a habit of peddling shitty studies meant to skew cultural acceptance of circumcision. Nine times out of ten, when people post pro-circumcision studies, they're from him. He is downright obsessed with it, constantly pumping out studies and publications solely about circumcision.


Take this above link with a grain of salt, it is literally from intact wiki, but still.

Here is a more educated breakdown:

You could rotate it before battle to your preferred position, but not rotate it mid battle.

Right, and trickle down economics works. /s

You'd be safer IRL printing it on a printer without yellow ink, then scanning it, then deleting the metadata from the scan.

And Geordi would probably canonically agree, at least with the second bit. Just finished reading Picard the Last Best Hope, and Geordi had no problem taking over the ship yards of Mars to build a fleet to save Romulans.

Even a small percentage is good. The situation is desperate.

The fewer first time home owners that get out bid by corps the better. Doesn't matter if it is a drop in the bucket.

And that's even before considering how it would help stop housing from being an investment vehicle.

I guess, no one NEEDS a video streaming platform.

Nobody NEEDS social media, but when a social media does something harmful, they need to be regulated.

That'd be well and good if they didn't have a monopoly.

Agreed, however approval/star voting would be better.

Getting shot in your own home during a no knock raid isn't a culture problem.


I don't know if anybody else has noticed, but this area has been hit particularly hard by creepers. If you come across this chest, please donate some dirt/sand to fill these holes in!

I couldn't think of a name for this bridge/river, so if you think of one you are more than welcome to name it.


This one is a long one, but a high quality video that explains a lot. Definitely worth listening to in the background if you have the chance to add to your watch later playlist.
