Male Initiation and the Phimosis Taboos



German version .........................French version


This site is the most complete research data base on Phimosis up until year 2,000 - Medical texts back to 1920 - Anthropology back to Ploss and Bryk and Grey who summarised the previous thinking - I answered at least 5,000 emails - and had the experience of my life ... against expert opinion and all bias pro and anti circumcision - at the beginning of internet with bleeping modems, no flat rate, an atari computer, a few good friends, it was hair raising and now, looking back, incredible.

www.male-initiation.net is a bad name but all the links go there - i have now opened a www.research-phimosis-frenulum-male-circumcision.com they mirror each other at present

also mirrored at members.lycos.co.uk/origins or members.multimania.co.uk/origins (the name keeps changing ... )

so I am back online and will slowly make a few arrangements to finish the site off - appendices of russian and finnish texts which I could never translate and titles of some old medical texts which german and british libraries couldnt supply - and more

this - if all goes well - will take a year - and then in 2012 - (better say 2013) - I will get round to answering my email (see contact page) and finding out if anyone wants to update or integrate or use any or all of my basic material ... the copyright looks like this
