Groups such as the Gilgal Society, the Acorn Society, and the Cutting Club openly admit to a morbid fascination with circumcision to the point of sado-masochistic fetish. These groups advertise that doctors are among their members. There are those on the Internet who discuss the erotic stimulation they experience by watching other males being circumcised, swap fiction and about it, and trade in videotapes of actual circumcisions.

Many of these people are the authors of the most recent pro-circumcision papers published in various medical journals (these works are used to push for circumcision in the media and through government organizations). Click their names for more information.

A quick search for these names in PubMed reveals that these are the most common "researchers" and editors of the latest circumcision to prevent HIV research, which is being funded the American government, and the World Bank.
The Gilgal Society published a book containing stories eroticizing the circumcision of minors.
Published by The Gilgal Society
“ He had not reached puberty but soon would: a few hairs were starting to grow at the base of his penis. Neil was then asked to lie on the couch for the penis to be photographed. ...the doctor tested the fit of two sizes of Gomco Clamp bell. During this procedure Neil erected, but was not embarrassed by it and made no attempt to hide it.
Mark came in next and again dropped his trousers readily. He had reached puberty and was quite well developed. ... Its like an elephants trunk was the doctors comment, to which Mark heartily agreed. ... Photographs of his penis were taken...
He had realised after sex education lessons at school that he had a problem.
...the boys were given plenty of wine to relax them. ...the discussion was about the sex lives of the boys and their school friends. The doctor asked how often the boys wanked. ... The doctor showed the boys his microscope and asked if they had ever seen sperm under one. ... He suggested to Mark that if he wanted to, he could have a quiet wank whilst Neil was being circumcised... This was eagerly accepted. ... He lay back with his eyes closed and just let the doctor get on.
He returned to the surgery and put on his underpants (tight jockey briefs). His penis was guided up against his abdomen... Photographs had been taken...
We all returned to the lounge where Mark was watching TV, having had his quiet wank. ...the doctor put some of Marks semen on a slide and put it under the microscope on high power. Each of us looked at the live sperm swimming vigorously around in the semen.
...there is hope that the circumcision will give him the confidence to overcome his enuresis [bed wetting].
The boys also looked at the book and noted a number of horrors which they would be spared now that they were circumcised.
On this occasion there were three boys to be circumcised, two of them brothers aged 8 and 10. The doctor had planned to take the younger one first... ...did not need circumcision, but it was being done for uniformity with his brother
He went down fighting and, because he had just been screaming, appeared to stop breathing. This worried his father, but the doctor said it was quite normal...
Ians foreskin was long... ...it needed to come off.
After lunch we had a five-year-old to do. ... Robert has shown his off to his school-friends. I hope some of them ask their parents if they can have their penis circumcised too.

Circumcision Helpdesk - Gilgal Society Rebranded
As of July 14th of 2014, date of the beginning of Vernon Quaintance's trial on charges of child sex abuse, the Gilgal Society's website has gone blank. However, upon verifying the Circumcision Information Resource Centre (another website by Vernon Quaintance which was "sponsored by the Gilgal Society"), we found that it is now sponsored by "The Circumcision Helpdesk."
The Circumcision Helpdesk website is also owned by Vernon Quaintance since 2003, and now contains the information previously presented by the Gilgal Society.
