If you are curious as to how the foreskin functions but do not have access to your own or your partner's, then you may find it helpful to view the moving photo gifs and video clips of real penises demonstrating their foreskin movement from several different views. Feel free to save and share them if it will be helpful in encouraging people not to be afraid of men with complete genitalia.

Additionally, viewing the photos on the following two links would also help clarify and deepen ones understanding:

The three zones of penile skin shows just how extensive the foreskin is:

Circumcision DOES NOT protect against infection. In fact, circumcision raises the risk of infection:

Circumcision does not prevent UTI/ Circumcision may also cause UTI:

I've put this together as a suggestion of places to start for health care and birth professionals, but I'd still like to do more. Most of this list is available online. I got a lot of help on this project, too! And it looks like I need to add the new informatoin for physicians from ICGI.

I read about someone using a 'senslip' device (artificial foreskin) and so I went to their page to see what it was all about. In any case they have a good rendering of a normal male penis it might be useful as an educational tool so here is the link:

Advocates for Youth published an interesting fact sheet which compares rates of STDs and HIV, among other things, between youths of the US and Europe. Some of you may have previously seen a similar sheet from 2001, well they've updated it in August and it is about the same. Unfortunately, they messed up the graphs but the the left margin has some interesting data:
  • The proportion of the United States’ adolescent and adult population that has been diagnosed with HIV or AIDS is six times greater than in Germany, three times greater than in the Netherlands, and one and a half times greater than in France;
  • Among teens, syphilis rates are more than 70 percent higher in the United States than in the Netherlands;
  • Gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported infectious disease in the United States, and U.S. adolescent rate is 28 times greater than teen rates the Netherlands;
  • Chlamydia infection is more than 15 times more common among U.S. teens than Dutch teens;

Condom use appears to be about 10% - 15% less common among US teens. I think this helps demonstrate that circumcision is just not a factor in STD acquisition. You all might want to tuck it away for future use.

This may be a repeat... but worthy.... a good choice of powerful and informative articles, both to support intactness AND keep our sons safe from medical ignorance.

Direct link: http://www.nocirc.org/articles/
Or from the nocirc main page, click on 'directory' and then 'important articles'


I think I'm just over 5 years 'researching' this issue and I'm pretty sure a few of these are new to me. BTW, I noticed this from the Mothering weekly email 10/21/08. Marilyn Milos' response to a parents question about forced retraction was featured in the email...(http://www.mothering.com/sections/ex...s-archive.html 'retracted foreskin') In her response she referenced this resource (along with a few nocirc pamphlets). From her response:

Quote:
Go to www.nocirc.org, click on Directory in the menu at the top of the homepage, again on Important Articles, and read the second, third, and fourth articles. Also, click on the pamphlets on the homepage and read three, four, six, and seven. Once you've done that, you'll know more than most doctors learned in medical school and you'll know how to care for your son and what he needs should a problem occur.

The reference page links to each of the resources in the 'brief articles' section.
For the 'in depth articles' section there is a short summary of the information with links to the full articles. Here's just the citations...

Oh, goodness just noticing this resource list has resurfaced with the new forum host...   Or maybe I just haven't made my way over to the resource threads in a while. Anyways.... there are so many new resources to list here.... and brand new organizations like Intact America and the WHOLE Network.... who wants to start?

Parents considering infant circumcision should REALLY check out Circumcision Decision-Maker. It takes you through each of your reasons for wanting circumcision one at a time and then gives you some expert opinion. It also has a lot of information on penis anatomy, how the foreskin develops, circumcision, and care of the intact penis including washing instructions.

This is the best resource on circumcision I've seen in years- and probably if there was only one chance, this is what I would give to someone.  
It's that good.

Child Circumcision: an Elephant in the Hospital

by Ryan McAllister

 

http://vimeo.com/26130057

 

From the description:  

"What is infant circumcision? Why is the practice common in U.S. hospitals and not in other countries? What does it remove and how does that affect the child? Does scientific data suggest that circumcision has benefits? What are the potential complications? How does it affect sexuality? Is it a medical procedure or a social surgery? If it's unnecessary surgery, what about contemporary bioethics principles?


Through both a review of scientific literature and a discussion of the human cost of the procedure, this presentation explores these questions from the perspectives of the child, the adult survivor, the parent, and the practitioner.

Ryan McAllister, PhD, is a parent, a biophysicist, an Assistant Professor of Physics and Oncology at Georgetown University, and also a volunteer who supports parents and families. Over the last 10 years he has been studying the medicalization of childbirth in U.S. hospitals.

The slides, supplementary material, references and a copy of the video can be downloaded here:
physics.georgetown.edu/
~rmca/Elephant_in_the_Hospital/

NOTE: This presentation includes some graphic slides necessary to present the procedure and anatomy being discussed."

Circumcision videos from  a more neutrally acceptable site. Note:  

 

"This site is designed to support the educational goals of our pediatric trainees and provide a useful resource for health care professionals worldwide who are caring for newborns. 

If you are an expectant parent looking for information about maternity services at Stanford Hospital, or for health information about pregnant mothers or newborns, please use the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital website. The links below are designed for use by physicians and other health professionals."

 

 

 

http://newborns.stanford.edu/Circumcision.html

"The information contained in the links below is intended for health care providers who are caring for newborns in a setting where circumcision might be desired by the parents. Written information, photos of conditions that cause concern or present a contraindication, and video clips of the three most common techniques used for the procedure are presented."

If someone wants to transcribe parts of the video- pm- me and I'll add text here.  I cannot do it. 

 

My notes:   The information appears to have been edited from when I first saw this a couple years ago (2006).  For example, there are now more warning about graphic material before entering a site, at least one video has been changed, I believe a recent newborn circumcision picture is off the main page and a newborn photo is there instead, and references to offensive aesthetic commentary/description are removed. The first time I saw the website, on one of the vids, a doctor was talking about a 'pretty penis' and one of the videos had a little blurb next to it: "Because of the excellent cosmetic results he obtains with this technique, other physicians often request his services for their  own family members". Also one of the video the doctor was not gloved for some (all?) of the procedure.  Anyways, the good news is that it has been significantly changed from the first time I saw it, the bad news is that no one questioned this as a teaching resource.  I saw the site because it was posted as a resource on a pro-circ parenting support thread with 'compliments' about how useful it was.   A link to the old MDC thread with the raw comments is here:  http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/542818/another-circ-medical-site-and-video
