More alternatives to circumcision

In response to your circumcision article (WDDTY, vol 9, no 9), I offer the following observations for parents who would prefer to try an alternative

In response to your circumcision article (WDDTY, vol 9, no 9), I offer the following observations for parents who would prefer to try an alternative.

The procedure is to grip the end of the foreskin between finger and thumb, gently pull it forward and urinate. The foreskin will swell like a balloon until the pressure is equal to that of the bladder. With the finger and thumb of the other hand, squeeze the "balloon" and force the urine out of the end of the foreskin. Once the balloon is emptied, the bladder will refill the foreskin and the procedure is repeated until the bladder is emptied.

The purpose of this exercise is to alleviate the restriction of the foreskin, which also tends to slightly lengthen. R Loom, Malaga, Spain......
