Re: Reason for partial circumcision?
Sounds more like he had a buried penis which is often a condition caused, or made worse, by circumcision.
Here in Australia during the 70s and 80s, when the medical profession first began to advise against circumcision, there was a trend to leave more skin on boys whose parents still insisted on circumcision. I don't think that happened in the US though. What country was he born in?
