It deals with a topic we are all interested in, our sexuality. But it looks at it in a new way, and one we must know about, if we are to have healthier and happier sex lives, and more loving relationships.
A major aspect of the book focuses in on the role that sexual pleasure during intercourse plays in the well-being of an intimate love relationship. And that the sex organs, as designed by Nature, work to enrich our lives in two ways: (1) they create sexual pleasure, and thereby, (2) create feelings of love for our lovemaking partner. In the process of explaining this, it lifts up the bedcovers in America's boudoirs and illuminates the shocking revelation that the part of the penis that plays the most important role in creating sexual pleasure (and ultimately love)--the foreskin--is removed in infancy by circumcision and thrown in the waste basket.
I foresee the current widespread acceptance of circumcision in this country (it is not practiced in most countries of the world) dwindling quickly once the information in this book hits the fan. Especially important, it offers hope and inspiration to men who want to restore their foreskin. Yes, this was a surprising solution. Foreskin restoration, though it may seem a "far out" concept, is presented as a dignified way for circumcised men to get back their foreskin through skin expansion techniques ("regrow,"as the author states it).Read more ›
It is most obvious that we could brush our teeth easier if our cheeks were cut out. But the tongue would become tough and dry and food just wouldn't have the same taste.
We could cut off our eyelids and prevent any eyelid "problems", but, without natural protection and lubrication, our vision would rapidly deteriorate. (And, we'd have life without sexy winks.)
Circumcision destroys much of the sense of touch that is experienced in sex.
Nature provided cheeks, eyelids, and foreskin. The intended function of each is similar. Complete sexuality is using all senses to the extent that nature intended.
The author's hope for devastation rests with foreskin restoration, whereby circumcised men can recreate a foreskin facsimile by non-surgical techniques. The Wall Street Journal had a front-page article on foreskin restoration in December, 2000.
In depth, this book explains how circumcised sex abnormalizes, not just mechanics, but the emotional relationship that surrounds it. How? By direct, down-to-earth language and quotes/stories by those affected. In one chapter, twelve women comment extensively on the differences of circumcised and uncircumcised (natural) sex from their experience. Not to be too heavy, though, humor periodically sprinkles the book.
The book operates on two levels. One, a conversational one-on-one relating of what circumcised and natural sex are like and what the differences are. Ms. O'Hara conducted research providing survey results from women, documenting their experiences and comments. These objectify the dysfunctionality of relationships highlighted by circumcised sex, disturbing an essential factor of what she calls the "love bond". There are also stories of foreskin restoration success, including a marriage-saving account of her husband , Jeff, who wrote the book with her. Throughout the book, the primary victims--circimcised men--are given emotional encouragement for foreskin restoration.Read more ›
