End game

Sir: There's a divinity that shapes our ends. In a long life I never met a man (Another voice, 27 August) who advocated circumci- sion, or a woman who didn't. The basis of choice is neither sanitary nor medical, but sexual. The foreskin was given for a purpose, two purposes: to protect and reinforce. Without one, man becomes the dominated partner in bed.
