A circumcision is a small procedure that is painful after surgery but heals quickly. There is good arguments for a man to have a circumcision and it is found that women whose man is circumcised, has a much lower risk to get cervical cancer. There are also arguments that after circumcision the penis is more higienic. He will definately feel no pain when erect after circumcision.

I suggest that you and your husband study the following detailed article about circumcision and decide if you want to have the procedure done: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumcision
