'''Basic Trope''': Angst about being uncircumsized.
* '''Straight''': Bob feels weird going to public restrooms because he is uncut, and other men seem to all be cut.
* '''Exaggerated''': Bob obsessively avoids using urinals and considers himself an abomination to the ladies.
* '''Downplayed''': Bob had a period in his awkward teenaged years because he was uncut while the other males he kept seeing were cut. He got over it.
* '''Justified''':
** Bob has joined a religion where apparently ThePowersThatBe care about whether a man has a foreskin or not.
** Alternatively, self-consciousness (whether about foreskins or anything else) is a fact of life; Bob just happens to be self-conscious about this particular thing.
* '''Inverted''':
** Bob feels like a cripple and is angry at his parents for having his penis cut when he was a baby.
** Alternatively, Danny moves from USA to Europe, and begins to feel awkward about being the only cut male around.
* '''Subverted''': Bob feels awkward about his uncut penis, but gets over the angst when his girlfriend declares she would never go back to cut men again.
* '''Double Subverted''': Bob feels awkward about his uncut penis, until he meets a girl who despite his expectations isn't grossed out. He is happy until she dumps him. Later he learns she secretly always hated Bob's foreskin-ridden thing, but was too nice to complain.
* '''Parodied''': Bob is certain the weird skin flap thing "there" is a malformation or maybe cancer. He goes to see a urologist, who gets similarly worried because [[EpicFail even he has never seen an uncut penis]].
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes Bob feels self-conscious about his foreskin, other times it doesn't bother him.
* '''Averted''':
** Circumcision issues are never handled in the story, or the story is set in a world where circumcision is unheard of.
** Or the cast consists of [[ImprobablyFemaleCast females only]], or creatures with no penises or foreskins.
* '''Enforced''': The story is set in times of Old Testament, all the characters are good Jews... and Bob wants to join their faith.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Oh, no! I'm the only uncut guy in the locker room! Everyone will stare at me!"
* '''Invoked''': Bob reads Literature/TheBible and starts to wonder if {{God}} still cares about foreskins or not.
* '''Exploited''': Mean Melanie wants to bring Bob down, and decides to be vocal about how totally yucky uncut manthings are.
* '''Defied''': Bob doesn't let others' opinions regarding what his penis looks like faze him.
* '''Discussed''': "Bob, you need to get over with this silly [[StealthPun wangst]]. No matter what the wild stories in your porn mags say, most girls really don't mind whether you're cut or uncut as long as you're cool with youself."
* '''Conversed''': "I don't get this whole 'woe is me and my foreskin' thing about Bob in Daily Soap. It isn't like all Americans were cut? Or are they?"
* '''Deconstructed''': Due to lack of uncut males in his life, Bob never learns to properly wash his penis, which leads to a life with frequent discomfort and absolutely no oral sex ever.
* '''Reconstructed''': Bob gets over the angst, and he learns to keep himself clean and comfortable. Because he is confident and clean, his {{Love Interests}} take notice and give him plenty of "loving attention" regularly.
