Hey, what's the deal? Looks as if there aren't any foreskins in there. (Can't tell about #3, is he doing a Puppetry deal, or is there something else going on that I can't quite make out from the blurry photo?)

Got any clues? Except for a few obvious hints (piercings, chopsticks, and the like), it might be difficult for the average Jane Or Joe to do better than random guessing. Fun, though! Anyone other than me up for a V-day equivalent?

Diane - The general estimate is that about 70% of American males are circumcised and it's the most common surgical procedure done on 'em. Heartbreaking, isn't it? They spend nine months all safe, warm, and protected and then... wham, as soon as they're out the most sensitive (arguably) part of their body gets clamped and cut. Oh, and I'm all for a V-day equivalent.

To be honest, the only uncircumcised males I know are my sons. (Speak up, those of you who have been hiding something from me. :-) There was NO WAY I was going to let their gorgeous little foreskins be mutilated like that. (Don't worry, I promise not to re-start one of the famous late-'80s misc.kids flame wars about circ/uncirc, just reporting my own experience...) The boys report that their peers are more likely to be "intact" than "cut". So perhaps there's hope for the future, in this small way at least.

V-day is traditionally celebrated on Feb. 14th, so let's make plans at the start of the new year. It's in my PalmPilot, so I know I won't forget. ;-)

22...... possibly 19. That's based on some observation and logic, not having any knowledge of Dan's body other than Burning Man photos.

As for a V-Day for foreskin, guys.... we need to step up and have a congener to The Vagina Monologues.... The Foreskin Fantasies.

"My dick is mad. It's pissed off! Those bastards at the hospital cut off its coat! I mean, the little fella was barely an inch long and these motherfuckers feel like they've gotta slice my foreskin off for hygiene reasons. Hygiene? Trust me, I'll be keeping an eye (and a hand) on my penis......"

It was one of the first arguments of my first fatherhood.. Cheryl (Wife #1) was adamant about Ryan (son) being circumcised.. (he was). Ignorance on my part.

There's at least one uncircumsized one in there (ie: mine). And y'all can do better than that on which one is mine, although admittedly if I could do it over again I'd fix the color balance.

Tough call, but I'm going with 16 (possibly 24). There don't seem to be any signs of a darkened circle of skin indicating scar tissue from a circumcision in those pictures. I don't have much else to go on considering I've only met Dan once, fully clothed, and in a dimly lit bar. And that was over two years ago.

Diane - The V-day celebrations have become something of an institution in my life so I shouldn't forget. I support the local university's production every year and try to round up new people each time I go. Makes me proud to have a 'coochie-snorcher', it does.
