Have you ever thought about why we circumcise our little boys in this country? We are told it's healthier for the boy, that it protects them from future health problems.  But is that really true? What if there are actually health consequences and risks due to circumcision?  And what about the sexual impacts it has on him as a man?  On tonight's show we're talking to psychologist Dr. Ronald Goldman about the American tradition of male circucision and why you may want to re-think this procedure for your son.

On this episode we discuss:

* The history of circumcision and it's "anti-mastrubation" beginnings

* The health risks of circumcision

* The actual procedure of circumcision for a newborn boy

* The sexual and psychological impacts on boys and men from circumcision

* Why this practice of cutting off a functional part of a male's body continues to this day
