The fact that sexual pleasure is so hard to measure is an argument IN FAVOR of leaving the decision up to the penis owner.

my body my choice

Let’s say that circumcision, IN REALITY, has no effect on sexual pleasure. The problem is that we would never be able to know this.

But you will still have men WONDERING about whether or not they would have had more pleasure with a foreskin, which is reasonable since, hell, it was part of their penis. Shouldn’t men (like women) be spared even having to WONDER what things would be like if their parents hadn’t literally had a part of their genitals CUT OFF and replaced with a scar?

    This is so brilliant– would it be alright if I borrowed it in coversations with others? I’ll try to reference your blog whenever possible.

    As an aside, I am convinced I instictively knew something was missing, literally DECADES before I even learned what circumcision was. One time after intercourse, feeling discomfort in my glans corona, I distinctly recall thinking to myself, “there ought to be something going over the top to make it smoother”. It needs to be emphasized that at this point in my life, my 20’s, I was in a state of near total ignorance about circumcision- I knew literally nothing about it or that anything had been cut off my penis.

    • Yes, certainly use anything you see on this site! I’ve been in this fight for years, and I’m more optimistic now than EVER before. I have a feeling that our culture will hit a tipping point with male circumcision VERY soon, perhaps in the next 10 years.

      I’m sorry about what you went through. It sucks. But I’m glad you’ve now educated yourself. I assume you have heard of foreskin restoration?

      One day I was sitting at my desk spending some time in existential contemplation when a wave of pure pain, pure anxiety so intense I, an extremely docile person, never have even risen my voice to anyone, nearly Hulked out, put my fist through the walls, tore the room apart, and yelled out. I had no idea why, what was it, what was wrong. All I could tell was it was some memory buried deep, something deeply horrifying had happened. Something to do with my peni… no, not quite, the pain is centered around…what? Its not…anything I know of. I got onto my computer and quickly discovered what used to be there (thanks Wikipedia). I was horrified, how could any sentient organism do something so…perverse.

      It has been months and the pain, the anxiety still haunts me, but at least I know what it is now. Now all I want to do is scream out ‘THIS IS EVIL!’

      I have found one Tom Golden LCSW, who claims that during treatment for PTSD, circumcised men tend to dig up a memory of pure anxiety and pain, and that therapists are aware that it is circumcision. Unfortunately not much else can be found on the topic. Other than it is known that the brain develops a class of memories called Implicit Memories, and is fully functional just before birth (that is how newborns recognize their mothers).
