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 - with Medical texts back to 1920 and Diderot - Anthropology back to Ploss and Bryk and Grey who summarised the previous thinking - I answered at least 5,000 emails - analysed the physical, sexual and ultimately psychological effects of a previously ignored part of the external male body ... realised how this has influenced cultures and relationships throughout our development - AND had the experience of my life ... against expert opinion and so much bias on circumcision .... at the beginning of internet with bleeping modems, no flat rate, an atari computer, a few good friends, it was hair raising and hysterical and now, looking back, wonderful and incredible.
I have since realised that the suggested methods of treatment and medical care on this site, (monitoring boys and early prevention of problems) were appropriate only up until year 2000. The new easy possibility of internet videos, suggests the appropriate modern method in the immediate future, is principally boys checking themselves, (though different cultures need different methods). (please see Postscript).
This site was also the first data base on Atypical Penis Fracture
My apologies to those who feel male initiation is more than just a couple of penile problems but i needed one site - with one site name ...
