These pages are aimed at the research and revision of our understanding of the ancient tradition of circumcision from the perspective of modern medicine. Our intention is to discuss and develop an appropriate initiation for manhood in the modern world.


May 2018
There is a new Forum open for suggestions, questions, personal experiences and general exchange of ideas.
I doubt if i will be around to answer regularly - but hope to look in from time to time to check how its going.

I accept any feedback from other site owners pro- anti- or unbiased - please drop me a line and a link.


Wanted :
People to help and eventually
take over the admin on this site and project.


Put it up as an extra on your own site to increase hits (it weighs around 14 MB and gets 200,000 hits a month).


"animals copy to survive - if someone has good ideas it is a collective responsibility to copy them!"

It would be really nice if all my info was not lost, and it needs more than one person to develop different sides to a new story. There is no copyright - (the copyright looks like this.)

Please use the information - copy what you want from the site - develop a new design - a classical version, a punk version, etc. I think a wiki version of a lot of the texts would really help with clarity. And Internet needs a site with videos and pictures.

Its a great little subject because its such a tabooed area - there has been so little research - its all new land ... but its got no street cred. ... its nothing you can talk about ... so its a lonely job, and this brings me to :

There is still no group supppoprting education on Phimosis. But even before Internet started, there were large anti and pro-circ. movements with quarterly magazines.

Doctors and uni. professors have written many articles on the anti and pro circ. view points ... these are the only influence on popular opinion; and its ridiculous that the only question most people have on the subject is whether "to circ. or not?". As if there were only 2 alternatives!

So, this is my latest attempt to get some sort of gathering of people - who feel the importance of the subject ... the chaos and futility of the whole phimosis experience - and that future kids dont need to go through that ridiculous waste of time and energy and love.

Sometimes it seems to me, a totally irrelevant subject in comparison to 100s of other modern problems ... but then i wonder how much it has influenced basic human relationships and social structures over the millennia ..? (see European)

If this concerns you, PLEASE write a short mail, (it would help me if you write "GROUP" in the subject line)

With the needs of good parenting ... and with modern social networking possibilities ... i feel sure that these days, a support group could form).

Sorry but i've closed the personal contact from this site - Please send your personal stories and links to pictures/videos to the Forum .. but i don't intend checking more than once a year .. i simply have done all i can alone with this subject.
