What Circumcised Men Are Missing

 Alert! Some sites linked to BoysToo.com have graphic pictures and illustrations that may be offensive to some people. These possibilities range from the beauty of the normal, intact penis to some truly offensive, gruesome torture scenes of penile mutilation by clamps and knives. These scenes are even more depressing when pathology subsequent to the circumcision occurs, such as infection (the >Jacob Sweet case-->also here) or penile amputation ( the >David Reimer case recently televised).


The following link is to information on the >function and >anatomy of the foreskin including the original research on the subject by John R. Taylor, MB, MRCPEd, FRCPC published in the British Journal of Urology in 1996: >Canadian Site.

Women also suffer loss when men are circumcised: >Women's Loss.

Until recently, the losses foreskin amputation causes, particularly the loss of sexual fulfillment including just one's desire to be with women, was a (perhaps the) major reason for circumcising . Misogyny and asceticism were hallmarks of the man's man, one dedicated to God who must eschew the pleasures of the flesh. A Medieval philosopher made note of this: Moses Maimonides  (1135-1204) in his >Guide for the Perplexed:

"Similarly, with regard to circumcision, one of the reasons for it is, in my opinion, the wish to bring about a decrease in sexual intercourse and a weakening of the organ in question, so that this activity be diminished and the organ be in as quiet a state as possible....The fact that circumcision weakens the faculty of sexual excitement and sometimes perhaps diminishes the pleasure is indubitable. For if at birth this member has been made to bleed and has had its covering taken away from it, it must indubitably be weakened."

Some men have stretched the shaft skin to cover the glans penis to simulate a foreskin and protect the glans from further desensitization. >NORM, the National Organization of Restoring Men.
