Male Genital Cutting

General
The only country where routine (as distinct from ritual) infant circumcision is still prevalent is the USA. The best sites for information about this are

Internationally there is an umbrella group, the International Coalition for Genital Integrity

Circumcision has become uncommon in the British Commonwealth over the last few few decades, but it still done at a troublesome rate.

Action
You can endorse the Ashley Montagu Resolution to End the Genital Mutilation of Children Worldwide, a Petition to the World Court, the Hague.
Reform Jews especially are invited to sign an online petition calling on the Leadership of the Union for Reform Judaism and the Central Conference of American Rabbis "to demonstrate leadership by now educating its Rabbis to recognize the medical and ethical shortcomings of religious circumcision, and to both sanction and promote alternative ceremonies, like the Brit Shalom, [and] to support those that do so."

Care2 has two petitions running, one to the Centers for Disease Control, the other to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The MGM Bill is a proposed measure to outlaw Male Genital Cutting.

Blogs
Blogs, podcasts, videos, Facebook pages and essays are now together on one page.

Mothers

Birth Psychology is a site concerned with psychological influences at birth.

Fathers
Circumcised fathers considering leaving their sons intact now have a special page on the NOHARMM site where they may contact a circumcised father of an intact son in their area.

The Whole Network has contact details for foreskin-friendly doctors, sorted by state.

Sexuality
Cat Saunders is a counsellor, shamanistic practitioner and minister who explains why she regrets never having had an intact lover.
The Goofyfoot Press, publishers of "The Guide to Getting It On", have a page of first-hand accounts of sex by and with intact men.

Students
In September of 2002, San Francisco State University became the first college campus to have a student organization specifically focused on ending all forms of genital mutilations. Since the formation of Students for Genital Integrity (http://www.studentsforgenitalintegrity.org), other students around the country have expressed interest in starting similar organizations. A moderated Yahoo e-group for students only has been created as a means to help that happen. There are currently chapters of Students for Genital Integrity in Iowa and Florida, and two are forming in Washington DC and one in Arizona.

Circumcision is not mentioned in the Qur'an, but more Muslim boys are circumcised than any other single group. An Islamic site with anti-circumcision information is http://www.quran.org/khatne.htm (also http://www.quran.org/CIRCUMCISION.HTM), part of the Virtual Mosque. Another, FreeMinds.Org, has a page against Islamic circumcision.

The QuranicPath website includes some finely detailed argument.

The Revival follows "the Original teachings of Qur'an".

Nurses and Midwives

Foreskin restoration
Some thousands of circumcised men worldwide are regaining some of the function and much of the appearance of a foreskin by encouraging growth through tension. They keep contact via:

Artificial foreskin

A company in Salisbury, England, Viafin-Atlas, makes an "undergarment" called a "Senslip" out of latex and rayon that acts as an artificial foreskin, even retracting like one for urination (not intercourse). The idea is to restore the sensitivity of the glans. The need for such a device is itself an indictment of circumcision. Their website has a video with a strong pro-intact message and some good graphics, but a rather confused message about the innervation and role of the foreskin.

Law
Men who want to take legal action on account of botched, non-consensual or unnecessary circumcision (and lawyers who want to help with such action) should contact Attorneys for the Rights of the Child (ARC).

Here is a link for information about lawsuits against doctors and medical boards.

Here is one to resources on medical malpractice.

Men who object to having been circumcised are invited to join the class action at SueEasy.com

Art
Photographer Sherwin Carlquist has a web site of his black and white photographs of natural men (intact and with no tattoos, tanlines or shaved bodies, either) in natural landscapes.

Angela's Men is a gallery of treated photographs of intact men, many closeups. Treatment is commonly a metallic finish, such as copper. The images are large, suitable for printing.

Videos
The groundbreaking British documentary It's a Boy! is now available on DVD. Trailer at the website.
"Circumcision? Intact Facts" An important short video. It doesn't show the whole circumcision procedure, but it shows enough, the baby first screaming and then traumatized. It is dramatically evident that the pain and trauma of circumcision cause a dissociative state.

Country & Western singer Mark Weigle has songs supporting genital integrity.
A song on a CD by Dennis Payne and Charles Bieker has the refrain, "I Am Not Circumcised." Over the melody and the sung words "I am not circumcised," Dennis reads from Chuck Thompson's list of famous intact men. A copy is $10 ppd from:

Opera!
"Opera is for when the emotions are too big for words" so Betty Katz Sperlich R.N. and Nurses for the Rights of the Child have enlisted Ron "Dadou" Romanovsky (formerly of Romanofsky and Philips) to create "It's a Boy!, a circus opera", using puppets, musicians, dancers, a trapeze artist and a knife-juggler. A concert version has been performed at the Santa Fe Playhouse and at the Ninth International Symposium on Genital Integrity in Seattle. The CD is available from Fresh Fruit Records, 369 Montezuma Ave, #209, Santa Fe, 87501 USA.
