Which was the reason it was promoted in the USA in the first place.


6: Circumcision increases risk of erectile dysfunctions.

7: If too much skin is removed in circumcision, it can make the penis smaller since the dong needs some skin to expand during an erection:



8: Circumcision does not lower the risk of AIDS.


9: Circumcision is more hygienic. Who the fuck doesn't clean their dick? It's a three second job you do when you shower so this is not a valid argument. Women produce 10 times as much smegma as men - so it's OK to amputate an infant girls' labia lips so she doesn't have to wash them??

10: Circumcised foreskin sold to cosmetic manufacturers for profit:


Erectile dysfunction 4.5 times more likely to occur if you're circumcised

Stanford's school of medicine list of circumcision complications (including infection, haemorraging, skin-bridging, phimosis, amputation and death):


Cut infants get long-term changes in pain response from the trauma of being circumcised


Circumcision decreases penile sensitivity


Circumcision associated with sexual difficulties


Circumcision linked to alexithymia


The exaggeration of the benefits of circumcision in regards to HIV/AIDS transmission


Circumcision/HIV claims are based on insufficient evidence


There is no case for the widespread implementation of circumcision as a preventative measure to stop transmission of AIDS/HIV


Circumcision decreases sexual pleasure


Circumcision decreases efficiency of nerve response in the glans of the penis


Circumcision policy is influenced by psychosocial factors rather than alleged health benefits


Circumcision linked to pain, trauma, and psychosexual sequelae


Circumcision results in significant loss of erogenous tissue


Circumcision has negligible benefit http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9091693

Neonatal circumcision linked to pain and trauma http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9057731

Circumcision may lead to need for increased care and medical attention in the first 3 years of life http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9393302

Circumcision may lead to abnormal brain development and subsequent deviations in behavior http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10657682


CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms the importance of the foreskin for penile sensitivity, overall sexual satisfaction, and penile functioning. Furthermore, this study shows that a higher percentage of circumcised men experience discomfort or pain and unusual sensations as compared with the uncircumcised population.


CONCLUSIONS:Circumcision was associated with frequent orgasm difficulties in Danish men and with a range of frequent sexual difficulties in women, notably orgasm difficulties, dyspareunia and a sense of incomplete sexual needs fulfilment.


CONCLUSION: There was a decrease in masturbatory pleasure and sexual enjoyment after circumcision, indicating that adult circumcision adversely affects sexual function in many men, possibly because of complications of the surgery and a loss of nerve endings.


CONCLUSIONS:The glans of the circumcised penis is less sensitive to fine touch than the glans of the uncircumcised penis. The transitional region from the external to the internal prepuce is the most sensitive region of the uncircumcised penis and more sensitive than the most sensitive region of the circumcised penis. Circumcision ablates the most sensitive parts of the penis.
