The following linked websites show original photos which document possible harm and damage from circumcision. They are not representing, but all individual cases of men and boys who dared to be photographed their penis. Thus it demonstrates how different foreskin amputations are performed worldwide and what can go wrong with it. These collections do not claim to be exhaustive.

ADVISORY: The linked websites contain explicit photos of adult male genitalia in the flaccid or erect state. If you're easily offended by such photos, you are hereby warned not to visit these sites.

Global Survey of Circumcision Harm

In 2011, a global survey of circumcision harm was launched, because the medical community has never investigated the long-term adverse physical, sexual, emotional or psychological consequences of infant/childhood circumcision on the health of adult men. On September 21, 2012 the survey was closed to new respondents.

To fully appreciate the damage caused by circumcision, one must first understand how the natural, intact penis should look and function. The photos firstly show the way that Nature/God intended the human penis to look and function.

Pages after that reveal the damage suffered by survey respondents and others who have submitted photo evidence of their damage.


Traditional Circumcision and Initiation into Manhood (ulwaluko) is an ancient initiation ritual practiced by the amaXhosa of the Eastern Cape. The ritual is traditionally intended as a teaching institution to prepare boys for the responsibilities of manhood. The principles that lie at the very core of the ritual are respect for self (including self control and integrity), respect for family (not to bring shame to them), and respect for community (to protect them from harm).

Every single initiation season the media writes about complications accompanying the ritual of Traditional Circumcision and Initiation into Manhood (ulwaluko). The magnitude of these complications is horrific, from 1995 till 2014, 919 boys have lost their lifes in the mountains and hills of the Eastern Cape. Many others were mutilated or even lost their manhood.
