Circumcision The jig is Up.

Circumcision The jig is Up.  For whatever reason the genital cutting of children came into being, the time is now right to end it. 

Historical reasons for circumcision are hypothesised to be blood letting rituals, tribal membership rituals, replacement for child sacrifice, a covenant with God etc.  Myths to perpetuate the practice have evolved such as its a useless piece of skin, it is dead skin, its cleaner, the child feels no pain, its a completely safe and harmless procedure, and its better for whatever reason.  Then culture invades medicine and circumcision is used to medically reduce sexuality, medically prevent masturbation, surgically cure mental illness, and surgically the only way to prevent disease.

In the 21st century, with the advent of the information age via the internet we can now dispel these myths and inform people with facts.  The foreskin is a functional sex organ providing pleasure to the individual and their partner.  Circumcision is harmful being extremely painful and it comes with many complications including death.  There are more effective medical ways to prevent disease.  Bodily integrity is a human right, and the only person who has the right to decide is the individual being circumcised.

The one difficult area in ending circumcision is the religious one.  While people such as myself who are non-believers find the religious need to circumcise primitive and absurd, those who believe are deeply disturbed at attempts to restrict their religious practices.  If it was possible to alter these beliefs my argument would be that to truly make a sacrifice, commitment, or covenant with God, one must be consciously aware in the process, which usually comes with adulthood.  It needs to be adults who decide to sacrifice their foreskin to their God, religion or whatever.  That privileges could accompany those that choose circumcision, such as the position of rabbi or imam are only available to those adults that chose circumcision for themselves.

The Jig is Up and children need our protection.

Describing the pleasure sensations of the foreskin and being intact

Given most statistical data analysis (research) into male sexual anatomy is both inadequate and crude at best.  I think I will begin a narrative testimonial, more in the case report or qualitative research paradigm.  This may inform future research methodologies.

I will describe the feeling of oral sex as performed by my wife of 23 years.

My wife will begin oral sex by leaving the foreskin covering the glans (head) and using her tounge in circular movements around the tip of the foreskin known as the frenar band which has parts of the ridged band embedded within it. The feeling is quite a sharp pleasurable sensation.  As the foreskin retracts, the tounge will touch the glans which is also pleasurable but of qualititaively different sensation, less intense than the ridged band, a duller sensation by contrast, but almost equally pleasurable.  She will then roll the foreskin half way down the glans, and lick in circular motion and gently move her open mouth in an up and down motion.  This is where the strongest interaction between the two different sensations between the foreskin and glans is most obvious.  The sensations tend to cascade together creating a combined sensation of the two contrasting sensations.  It feels extremely pleasurable, almost my favorite feeling.

She then proceeds to fully retract the foreskin and begins licking my frenulum.  The frenulum has another pleasure sensation which is similar to the ridged band, less intense but possibly more pleasurable, or just more easier to enjoy as it lacks the intensity.

She then uses her mouth to glide up and down my penis, beginning with the glans moving down over the corona and frenulum, and then it feels like my bunched up (rolled back) foreskin (Which contains the ridged band) is engaged and stretched down my shaft by the mouth and tounge. The feeling is of almost unbearable pleasure when her mouth glides over my glans, then gliding over the frenulum and corona gives the sensation of the orgasm trigger, and then stretching the bunched up foreskin (Ridged Band) down the shaft seems to be the sensation that eventually releases the orgasm (This is the most pleasurable of all the sensations). NB.  The ridged band is removed by circumcision.
