Lop it off or What?

So, here's a question. Should the end of an infant's penis be cut off or not? In more formal terms, what are we supposed to do about circumcision?

Leaving aside religion, and those few times when it is immediately medically necessary, it is true that in hte long term it leads to fewer STDs and cancers.

On the other hand circumcision is also known to reduce the sensitivity of the glans and thus, as some would say, reduce sexual pleasure.

Hmmm. You might want to click through to see that argument being demolished, it's likely that it actually increases the sum of sexual pleasure.
