Circumcision Exposed - Rethinking a Medical and Cultural Tradition

Circumcision exposed.jpg

An emotionally literate, culturally sensitive, yet fearless exploration of why the United States is the only country in the world to circumcise a majority of its baby boys for supposedly medical reasons. Includes various aspects of the practice, including its impact on sexuality.


Excellent--the right mixture of personal, scientific, and political.
– Jed Diamond, author (The Warrior's Journey Home: Healing Men's Addictions, Healing the Planet)
Thoroughly researched, compelling, expressed with fervor but in no way a diatribe
– Ed Duvin, former editor (animalines)
[D]isplays particular sensitivity to issues of religion, health, sexuality and parental and infant rights. (Sexuality Library, San Francisco)
