Yes, Benjamin is circumcised.
My two boys are intact. But I only know of one other family IRL who has intact boys. But I live in a pretty rural are so that might make a difference.
Jeanne, mom to Dev0n (4) Isabe11e (3) and C0rbin (2) (12/2011) Vio1et (6 months)
There aren't many in my area that don't circ as well, and we're suburban.
Megan (28) and Jayson (31) Happily married 8 years
3 boys, all circ'd.
We live in the city (or rather less than two blocks outside of Chicago city limits). I asked my OB about this and she says that her practice circumcises about 80% of the boys. The rates are actually much higher since we also have a large Jewish population and those boys are circumcised on the eighth day outside of the hospital. So, I never heard of not doing this until I saw one of the threads on this site about two years ago. Now I don't go around asking people about whether they are or are not circumcised or whether or not they will circumcised their boys but the rates among people that live around me are apparently quite high.
1 boy, partial circ. (They take off a lot less skin, though I personally think it looks kinda goofy and the scarring is horrid). Depending on how it looks as he gets bigger, he may or may not choose to have it altered to suit him. His penis though he can do what he wants with it lol. My next boy will be left intact though, based on the research I've done.
yes, DS is circ'd, and if he'd had any little brothers they would have been also.
*Kimberly* Mommy to Hayden (6), Alexis (4), and the Twins!

Parker will be circ'd. So will any other boys down the line.
2 circ'd boys here
Adding to the hypothetical votes- if we had a boy he would be intact.
My son is intact.
Audrey (38) DH (34), Lilly (DD), Logan (DS). Breastfeeding is more than feeding. It is communication between mother and baby. It is a form of nurturing; it is an act of love.
Jude is intact.
We chose to have Micah circumcised for hygiene and aesthetics.
2 Circd here. Left it up to DH.
Two boys, both intact.
Edit: I was leaving it up to DH with DS1 and we signed the consent to have him circ'd. I told him that he had to go with him for the procedure. When the OB came, he told us there was no medical reason to have it done and DH changed his mind and daddy-protector mode kicked in! <3
