So you are an older, or maybe even elderly, man and still not circumcised. Are you thinking of the future and perhaps worrying how being uncircumcised will affect you?
More importantly, parents who are now making the decision whether or not to have
their sons circumcised, please consider the fact that your son will not always be
a baby, a child or a young man -
During my career I filmed in many hospitals, often on Geriatric Wards. The Nurses
told me many times about one of the biggest problems they face daily -
the difficulties ensuring that elderly, uncircumcised men kept their penises clean and healthy, especially if they are suffering from Alzheimer's or Dementia, or recovering from a Stroke, or are disabled, making them unable to do it for themselves.
Maybe you already know a gentleman in this situation, a hospital patient or Nursing Home resident? If you do then you will know what I’m talking about. You will understand that through no fault of their own their personalities may no longer be the same as when they were young men due to their illness or condition. In this situation some men become terribly distressed and even quite aggressive when a Nurse or Carer approaches their penis during bathing; most men find this excruciatingly embarrassing.
Just imagine the indignity of needing to be held still while your penis is cleaned.
It’s a frightening thought, isn’t it.
So think about your own future and old age. I don’t suppose you like the idea of being dependent on someone for your personal hygiene, a Nurse or member of your family needing to clean under your foreskin for you. I imagine it could be humiliating as well as embarrassing.
You know, you could make it easier for the Nurses or Carers.
You could avoid that humiliation and embarrassment for yourself, and for your sons.
Get circumcised as soon as possible. Get it done now.
Perhaps you would like to read what Nurse Gail has to say on her Blog on this subject, as I think she makes these points much more clearly than I can. With Nurse Gail’s permission, I have copied her Blog entry on the next page...
