The Circumcision Secret

By Stan Emerson

I am a 51-year-old, circumcised man.

By age 43 I had lost all glans sensitivity. It became difficult, at times even when I was alone, to reach orgasm and ejaculation. This is the big secret here. But of course most cut men don't even know why they have difficulty with, or lose interest in, intercourse or masturbation with age.

Due to the awful damage to my penis, there is just no more physical sensory input to achieve or produce much or any pleasure, and the neurological triggers that lead to orgasm and ejaculation are severely damaged or not even present.

I was cut way too tightly to "restore" my foreskin with stretching, so I gave up some years ago. There was no gain at all in the time I did spend in restoration. I was born to Catholics, sexually mutilated at birth by an elderly Jew (a medical doctor) born in Russia in 1888. I was born in Beth Israel Hospital, Newark, New Jersey. The doctor sliced off an excessive amount of my prepuce organ and the skin system of my penis so I was never able to have a normal sex life, not even during masturbation.

My goal is to make sexually mutilated men, fathers, and women too, furious (in a non-violent way) at the sexual mutilators at large today.

Circumcision was mentioned to me by my late mother when I was in 9th grade.

No details, no explanation.

Just a mention of circumcision since it had been severely inflicted on me at birth. I did not wonder about it for decades. I heard Dr. Dean Edell, MD, on the radio about the craziness of and damage from infant circumcision. Reading more caused me anguish, alarm, and finally disgust. I'm concerned about the darker, troubling aspects of this tragedy: the sexually mutilated male MD's, the Semites, and the young fathers and their fear, envy, anxiety and hatred of the normal, natural, intact penis. I became a Natioanl Organization of Circumcision Information and Resource Centers (NOCIRC) activist, keen on confronting others with this atrocity and fraud.

If your husband was circumcised, he will remain sexually mutilated until he dies. He has a partial, man-made, desexualized, and emasculated penis. If he was forced in infancy to undergo this senseless, violent, shameful, degrading practice (posing as medicine) then he has never known the joys and sexual sensations that only the intact man knows. His primary sex organ, his prepuce & penis, not his brain, was surgically reduced and permanently damaged anatomically, neurologically, and physiologically. What pleasure he experiences now will fade soon. In his 40s, when the glans of his penis is fully deadened and desensitized, he may lose interest in sex. Then too, he might die in denial, especially if he demands his own newborn son be circumcised to match his own partial, wrecked penis.

More men tell their stories about how circumcision has impacted them on the links/videos on this page. Our hope is that men are empowered to speak up about this very important topic. Change can only happen when we are not longer silent.


  1. Thank you for coming forward. Until more men come forward, it will always be a struggle to get people to recognize the full tragedy of altering an infant's genitals, especially if it shows up later in life, 40 - 60 years later. No studies will be done and people will continue to minimize all of these effects.

    A very recent press release out of Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, repeated the claim of mainstream USA medicine, that there is no "evidence" that circumcision diminishes sexual pleasure or harms sexual performance. That press release was the basis of a profoundly misleading story on CBS News. There is "no evidence" because American medical and sexual research refuse to go looking for stories like that of Stan Emerson.

    I have met 3 men with stories similar to Stan's. Their problems did not become manifest until well into middle age, so that men who go through this blame their aging, and not their having been circumcised in infancy.

  3. Oh, that is so sad. I did not know about this side effect. I'm even more glad that my sons will not experience this later in life. I think I'll go hug my husband now...

  4. This post sheds a light on a very dark corner of the house of possible circumcision side effects: the extinction of sexual sensation after age 40.

    My cut father's sex life ended around age 50; my brother's around age 45. I dear friend from my college days recently told me that he, at 53, has no more feeling in his penis. Last year I met a man whose sex life ended around 50; I took him 10 years to figure out why. He is now 63 and restoring.

    I am 59, intact, still very horny, and can make my wife come 3-4x.

  5. As Stan was, I was mutilated, by an old-fashioned Catholic doctor who took too much tissue away. I am trying to restore but it wil take a long time. As Stan discovered, at the age of 64, I too have little sensation in the parts that were intended to be soft and delicate.

  6. A couple years ago I met a young man, only 23 then, who was well on his way to having this problem. He'd already given up on having an orgasm from sex. He was stunned when I asked him if he was circumcised and told him it was the cause of his problems. I told him about restoring, but I have no clue if chose to. If not, I dread to think about what kind of problems he'll be facing as he ages.

  7. Aww Zoie!!! Hug him lots! YAY though for your whole babies! ;) I'm very glad my son is whole and will never experience such things.

  8. He has every right to be sad and angry, but most of us who are restoring are focusing on the positives. Even so, my heart breaks for this gentleman.
