Land of Yu-Phonia
by Rosemary Romberg (Wiener)

I once went to visit a far off land. As soon as I arrived there I noticed that the people all looked just like us except for one thing. Hardly any of them had ears. On the sides of almost all of the people’s heads were small holes surrounded by small scars where ears should be. I imagined that this was probably an unusual breed of people who were born that way.

I had been visiting for a few days when I came upon a group of children. All of them were earless, just like nearly all the inhabitants of Yu-Phonia. Some of these children stared at me with fascinated curiosity. I soon realized why. I have ears. Soon a woman came along and scolded the children. “It’s not nice to stare at people! Now, go away and leave her alone!”

Mja phimosis: This link used to work….

https://www.mja.com.au/journal/2003/178/4/treating-phimosis

The link above used to be a valid link. It showed a picture of a normal intact infant penis and an abnormal intact infant penis with true phimosis.
Basically, they showed slightly pulling back… Normally a non-retractable I can’t foreskin when pulled back slightly will pucker like lips and have a healthy pink look.
For true phimosis, when the foreskin is slightly pulled back the lips of the foreskin flatten out and look strained and white-ish and does not pucker like puckered lips.

(these are my own words above as the link above is now only for member use and I am not a member. I am only writing what I remember. I am not a dr or a scientist just someone who has been reading for 5 yrs on the intact boy because I am a mother.)

I found a link that works. It’s for a site in Canada

“Phimosis is nonretraction of prepuce. It is normally seen in younger children due to adhesions between prepuce and glans penis. It is termed pathologic when nonretractability is associated with local or urinary complaints attributed to the phimotic prepuce. Physicians still have the trouble to distinguish between these two types of phimosis. This ignorance leads to undue parental anxiety and wrong referrals to urologists. Circumcision was the mainstay of treatment for pathologic phimosis. With advent of newer effective and safe medical and conservative surgical techniques, circumcision is gradually getting outmoded. Parents and doctors should a be made aware of the noninvasive options for pathologic phimosis for better outcomes with minimal or no side-effects. Also differentiating features between physiologic and pathologic phimosis should be part of medical curriculum to minimise erroneous referrals for surgery.”

“11.2. Conventional Male Circumcision

In this case, the phimotic foreskin is totally excised. Circumcision is one of the oldest elective operations known in humans. It started as a religious/ritual sacrifice [90]. But gradually it became a routine neonatal procedure in USA and in some countries of Euro pein view of its reported hygiene and cancer-preventing benefits [91]. It cures phimosis and prevents recurrence [92]. It also prevents further episodes of balanoposthitis and lowers incidence of urinary tract infections [26, 93–95]. But it is besot with its own innumerable short, and long-term problems. Pain, difficult recovery, bleeding, infection, psychological trauma, and high cost are seen with circumcision [96, 97]. The literature is full of reports of morbidity and even deaths with circumcision. Besides, circumcision could lead to keloid formation. Possibility of decline in sexual pleasure for both circumcised males as well as their female partners due to loss of erogenous tissue has been reported [96, 98–105]. With advent of newer plastic surgical procedures for phimosis, this traditional surgery is gradually getting outdated. Circumcision is to be avoided in children with genital anomalies where the foreskin may be needed for later corrective surgery for the anomaly.”

Awesome article written by a man for men
Cultural circumcision: not really on, is it? 15/01/2011 12:00 pm We here at the JOE office got chatting recently about the practice of circumcision. While some felt it was largely a harmless practice, one had his reservations.

excerpt

In America recently, there has been a growing movement of men, in the thousands, who are taking the time to stretch out a new foreskin in a process called “restoration.” Men find different ways to tug at the remnants of the foreskin to stretch out a new piece of skin to cover their glans. After years, they’re able to get back a semblance of a foreskin, and men are able to tell the difference. Some men have testified that they thought their sex life was over, until growing back a new foreskin, though not the same as the original thing, has helped them; restoration dekeratinizes the glans, exposing the mucosa beneath it. Since men become more sensitive, they note that they are once again able to have sex, and THEN some; some men report orgasmic sensations never before felt. And still, in others, their female partners notice a difference in the way the man thrusts; it’s not so hard because he’s no longer working to get a sensation. Wives of said men, by the way, report a difference in their orgasmic sensations too. Some people might say this is anecdotal, but the proof is in the pudding. You can talk to men at TLCTugger dot com. It’s so sad that these men have to work hard to get back what should have been theirs to begin with; a whole penis is a man’s BIRTHRIGHT.
