Why Circumcision is Popular in the United States

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the nineteenth century, the middle class on both sides of the Atlantic were caught up in the hysteria about masturbation and its evils.  Doctors then declared that removing the foreskin prevented masturbation, cured bed-wetting, and continued to add imaginary benefits. 

This hysteria and the popularity of removing the foreskin, subsided in Europe; but circumcision has continued to be a preference in the United States long after the reason for it was forgotten.  Circumcision prevents masturbation about as well as wearing a condom on your head prevents pregnancy.
