Side Effects of Adult Circumcision

By Daniel Barrett

Medical Researcher, Chris Moore is a man on a mission to save adult foreskins. How did his strange passion get started? He almost made what he feels would have been the biggest mistake of his life - getting circumcised. Ever since he made some shocking medical discoveries, he has tried to educate men about what they would be losing and stop unnecessary adult circumcision.

Since the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reported in 1971 that there are no valid medical reasons for infant circumcision, there has been a steady decline in infant circumcision in North America. In 1999, the AAP issued still another statement discouraging the practice of newborn circumcision. Shortly thereafter, the American Medical Association also published that there is no proven medical benefit for routine circumcision. The Canadian Pediatric Society calls circumcision an obsolete practice.

Because of these announcements, in 2006 the percentage of infant circumcision in the United States was reported as being less than 50%. In Canada, currently 48% of adult men are circumcised although the reported rate of newborn circumcision in 2005 was only 9.2%.

More than 80% of men in the world are not circumcised. Circumcision is not common in Asia, South America, Central America, and most of Europe. Doctors in these countries are well educated in the care of the fully intact male; not so in North America. Doctors here are quick to recommend circumcision for any problem involving the foreskin.

North American men are left to turn elsewhere to find effective alternatives to avoid circumcision when diagnosed with common problems such as phimosis. This condition occurs when the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back completely. This can lead to conditions ranging from mild discomfort to persistent infections and painful intercourse.

If left untreated, phimosis can lead to a more serious condition called paraphimosis which occurs when the tight foreskin is pulled back and is caught behind the head of the penis. Blood flow can be cut off and lead to gangrene or even auto-amputation if not treated quickly.

The first thing these uneducated doctors recommend for every problem involving the foreskin is circumcision. This is 100% unnecessary and extemely undesirable. It is estimated that nine out of ten men being circumcised do not need the surgery! Aside from the pain, physical and emotional trauma, cost and down time, what is the big deal with cutting off the foreskin?

Medical researcher, Chris Moore was one of these men with a foreskin that was too tight and he was about to be circumcised. When he started researching about his own phimosis, he found that there are thousands of men who are desperate to regain, stretch and even surgically replace their lost foreskins. Moore had to find the reason why they so desperately wanted back what he was about to get cut off. What he discovered shocked and infuriated him.

It has been reported that 100% of circumcised men suffer from reduced sensitivity and sexual response. Additionally, it has been estimated that the uncircumcised male has 10 times the sexual pleasure and satisfaction than a circumcised male. Does this sound like an old wives tale to you? It did to Moore so he turned to science for the facts.

Moore found out the foreskin is not simply just a piece of skin as was commonly thought. It is a highly sensitized part of the body and its removal also removes several critical components of the male sexual anatomy. Without the foreskin, around 80% of the penis' erogenous zones are lost which are important for realizing the fullness and intensity of sexual response.

The frenulum is a very sensitive nerve-laden area that attaches the foreskin to the underside of the head of the penis. For uncircumcised men, this is the male "G-Spot" and it is highly pleasurable during sexual activity. Depending on the surgical method, the frenulum is usually completely destroyed by circumcision.

The foreskin is meant to cover the head of the penis and protect it from irritation, drying, calluses and infection much like the eyelid is meant to protect the eye. The head of the penis is meant by nature to be a protected body part. The dryness and callusing of the head causes a loss of sexual pleasure, feeling and satisfaction.

The inner foreskin creates plasma cells which distribute antibodies and antiviral proteins. This is believed to be one reason why whole men are at a lower risk of getting Chlamydia, HIV (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Once Moore learned about the importance of the foreskin, he was not about to let someone amputate his. He still had to solve his tight foreskin problem though. Moore dug into all the research he could find and consulted many foreign doctors familliar with intact males. He tested methods for easily curing phimosis at home with no cost. Moore then set out to help other men with phimosis.

In a subsequent clinical trial 509 out of 512 cases (99%) of Phimosis were cured at home with simple painless foreskin stretching exercises. Moore decided to spread the word to other sufferers of a tight foreskin. He created a website designed to help educate men about the importance of rejecting circumcision and how easy it is to treat the problem in the privacy of your own home.

With this new resource available, it is hoped that many more men who are fortunate enough to be left with what nature intended them to have, will reject circumcision before it is too late. - 30540
