Yes, there is a party and the boys get paraded in the streets. And you can watch the actual circumcision but of course you cont have to.

The boys can be aged anything from 3 - 10.

Not my idea of entertainment. I understand the cultural signifance and some people may be interested. It just sounds funny. Like perhaps they will close the show with a stoning or beheading. ust trying to add some humor to the subject. I yield to alot of cultural issues but I had my 2 boys cut as infants. One in the US and 1 on Lombok. I have assisted before. Not something I will soon forget. Forgive my offensive attempt at humor. I just couldn't help myself.

I passed one of there street parades last week. It was certainly fun, lively and colorful to watch. But I certainly wouldn't want to witness the rest of the proceedings.

*shudder*

I think it is a good opportunity for guests to get an interesting insight into the culture.

I do not have any problem with circumcision. Made is circumcised even though Hindu and of course all my male Muslim friends here are also.

However, personally if Martin was to be circumcised for any reason I would prefer it done in a clinic/hospital.

I would be interested in seeing a female circumcision just to see what is involved. I know it's a very touchy subject. I am lead to believe there different levels from just a minor incision for symbolic purposes to removal of "parts".

Should be an interesting experience Gemma.

You witness how to perform the circumcision on boys?

Last this year this forum was hacked and my three admin logins and emails were all changed.

All efforts to have new passwords issued have till now failed, even the efforts of the hosing company as even the creator email has been changed.

So I have now created a new Lombok Lovers site and would like to ask all members to re register there.

I hope that you will all take the time to come over to the new site and that we can make it as friendly and informative as the old forum.


I look forward to seeing you there.
