The foreskin is a lip, and thus an organ; its ablation is a mutilationMichel Hervé Navoiseau-Bertaux Salem-News.com
The reason is simple: the foreskin is taboo, like autosexuality that is designated by a word with reproachful connotations.
(PARIS, France) - Abstract – Only mentioning the lips of the mouth and the vulva, anatomy textbooks do not generalize the notion of lip to all the organs that have a similar structure and function.
Among these, the foreskin moreover includes an erogeneity and an ability to retract that make it the specific organ for masculine autosexuality. Generalizing the concept of lip and giving lonely pleasure a scientific and non contemptuous calling, this short article fills two medical gaps.
Lips are organs frontier between the interior and the exterior. Their great characteristic is being both-sided: skin on one side, mucosa on the other side. The exterior shelters the interior from rubbing and desiccation. They also are particularly provided with fine-touch nerve endings. They comprise: the eyelids, the nostrils, the lips, the labias, the foreskin, and the anus.
The generalization of the notion of lip forbids proponents of circumcision to claim that the foreskin is not an organ but a useless and anti-hygienic fold of skin.
Indeed, that generalization all the more overthrows that view as, like the clitoris, the foreskin has particularly dense erogenous innervation... in synergy with the fine-touch innervation.
So, the – unique in nature – rolling back and forth of that double-sided blind enables, besides easy cleaning, particularly pleasurable stimulation both of itself and the glans. Since it can be suppressed without impeding reproduction, the foreskin, like the clitoris, is not a genital organ; it is the specific organ for masculine autosexuality.
These observations do not figure in any medicine textbook. The reason is simple: the foreskin is taboo, like autosexuality that is designated by a word with reproachful connotations. However, it is biologically established that its ablation is an as unnecessary, painful and risky as sexually, ethically and legally inadmissible mutilation4. Under cultural or religious pretexts, the deep reason of circumcision is always forbidding autosexuality to children.
