Related to circumcision, the term Circumcision coma stands for two things:

  1. One can name the state of shock that newborns and babies fall into when they can no longer endure circumcision and fall into a coma because of their pain.
  2. Since Lindsay R. Watson coined the term in his book "Unspeakable Mutilations", it describes a state of denial in grown-up men who have not yet realized that in their earliest childhood, the circumcision gave them a highly traumatic experience that they have not yet realized or even processed. When genitally mutilated men realize for the first time (often through a trigger impulse from the outside) what has been done to them, it is often like an "awakening from a coma" to them.
