Weirder than placenta encapsulation...

I just had my newborn son circumcised at a nice modern hospital in a country that doesn't really "do" circumcision (India). After the procedure was over, the doctor asked me if I wanted the foreskin, since (according to him) some people want it to keep it for "religious purposes." Does anyone know what groups keep the removed foreskin and what they do with it? Googling isn't turning up anything, but I might be using the wrong key words.

Male masturbation and using lube

I honestly don't know this, and almost none of the men that I know are circumcized, so I wouldn't know who to ask in person. Is it generally so that lube is more needed/vital/ important/whathaveyou for masturbation if one is a male who is circumcized? [more inside]

There Is No Category for Mohel on Yelp

We just moved to Austin, TX and have a new baby boy due next month. Of course I wait until the last minute, but does anyone have any recommendations for a mohel (ritual Jewish circumciser) in the Austin area? The ceremony will not be huge, since we do not know anyone here yet. My wife is not Jewish, so s/he would have to be accepting of that.

After effects of circumcision in a 11 month old baby?

My 11 month old son needs to be circumcised soon due to extreme phimosis which has led to repeated urinary tract infections. (See this question for some background, actually.) Are there other Mefi parents who have had their older infants/children circumcised? Our urologist seems to think that he'll only be in discomfort for a day or two, and that the aftercare will be fairly minimal, but I'm not sure I believe him. Please lets not debate circumcision, ok? We chose not to have him circumcised at birth, but repeated serious UTIs are a whole other kettle of fish. Thanks! [more inside]

Adolescent Circumcision

Deeply conflicted, the circumcision we'd reluctantly decided upon was rescheduled until his seventh day. My husband and I got within a block of the doctor's office, our perfectly-formed week-old baby in his carseat, and simultaneously decided he was just right and we were just wrong. We turned around and never looked back, until . . . [more inside]

I'm going to be having a baby boy soon, so I've been forced to handle a sensitive subject: foreskin! Should we circumcise him, or not? Is it genital mutilation or just good, clean hygiene? I'm snipped, so it's always seemed perfectly normal to me, but is it even necessary? Some professional medical advice would be appreciated, as well as any sociocultural perspectives/opinions you might have.
