I have blogged about circumcision a few times before. On Circumcision, What About Afterward, How Do You Decide, and Live Journal Rant are my prior posts.
This is usually a very touchy subject, but one that I cover with the families that I work with. I never used to, but I have found about 1/2 of the families that do circumcise end up regretting it. SO.. with that said.. I hope I don't offend.
Below, you will find some information I share with clients and friends.
- Circumcision Information Packet
- The Truth About Circumcision and HIV
- Circumcision Decision Maker - an interactive educational tool.
Penn & Teller Documentary - a humorous (and very colorfully embellished) video on circumcision and good solid information about it. It shows a GRAPHIC circumcision at 2:02-2:11 and 19:49-19:56.. other than that, there is no other procedures shown. 22:37-23:40 and 24:13-18 shows an adult restored foreskin and 23:40-23:52 shows a topless woman. Sorry, lots of disclaimers.
Function of the Prepuce - an educational piece on the biological and sexual function of the foreskin.
