B.) Circumcision: Assault on Male Sexuality

Guests:

1.) Laurie Evans, M.A. Ms. Evans is director of the NY Hudson Valley chapter of NOCIRC, a national organization of health care professionals devoted to educating the public about the harm done by circumcision.

2.) Jeremy Proctor, author and activist. Mr. Proctor has expertise in the cultural and historical background relating to circumcision.

3.) Paula Young, frequent contributor to MensNet who believes that circumcision is harmful to men. Ms. Young thinks that male circumcision is an unnecessary attack on male sexual integrity, similar to female circumcision, which would never be tolerated in this culture.

The show focused on the harm done by routine infant circumcision, especially the loss of sexual sensitivity for men. We attempted to understand why it is done and whether circumcision represents an actual and symbolic assault on male sexuality.
