The concept that an anatomical deficiency in the erection can influence the sexuality appears to contradict every advance in understanding which our culture has made over the last century. - Psychological research has concentrated on parental and environmental phenomenon, and the urological disciplines do not include sexual behaviour. Scientific research has overlooked this area of human sexuality.

The Magic of a Man


When the phallus is inhibited, the individual's relationship with his own body and his ability to share and satisfy himself and others is also inhibited. In due course his experience in intimate relationships reflects socially.

(Again, social inhibitions may develop and the full opportunities of manhood may be denied for many complicated psycho-social reasons which are discussed in many large volumes of books, here we are discussing a simple fact of life which has been overlooked. And how easy it would be to resolve, how ridiculous that this extra complication became established in the first place).

"both men and boys can - over time, adapt their beliefs and thinking patterns to accommodate their anatomical conditions.". When a problem is conscious, an individual has the choice of confronting it, and by confronting it can even turn it to some greater strength. On the other hand, when unknown to the individual he's fighting his own closest friend, how many self deceptions would he accept in order to maintain a sense of integrity?

Both the subconscious and semi-conscious experiences limit and confuse reality. Over a period of time as situations and lovers are repeatedly mis-sensed and misinterpreted, the sufferer learns to live with a one sided and unbalanced picture of himself and the world.

Attitudes and intentions adapt to accommodate the illusion of normality or the doubts of abnormality; the inconsistencies become integrated, (alternatively the personality becomes disintegrated) . Similar to the incest victim or the person who represses his homosexuality, the personality adapts to and adopts this irrational chaos element.

His experience of what defines him as man is limited, inhibited and avoided, how can he develop a realistic sense of being a man or any realistic confidence (Latin fidere 'trust') in his maleness? Foreskin inhibitions can never support and would always undermine fulfilment and sexual confirmation as a man.

It is impossible to define the consequences in any absolute terms, unrecognised foreskin conditions are best understood as an inhibition with the tendency to stimulate isolation. They add an unnecessary confusing ingredient to intimate relationships and subsequently social relations of all sorts. They are compatible with shyness, privacy, anxiety, frustration and loneliness, and they are incompatible with a relaxed sexuality, openness in intimate relationships and thus, happiness and leading a simple life.

When the magic of a man is subconsciously in a state of bondage, who can say exactly where this may lead his sexual energy? The ability to share and satisfy himself and others is inhibited. His intimacy with his own body reflects in any and every close relationship. Without this intimacy and the integration with himself and others, the wholeness of a man is missing.

Was it innocence or ignorance - which led to these consequences?
