Discussing Foreskin Restoration with Friends

Aug 2, 2011 Posted by Nathan

Talking about foreskin restoration with friends can be a tricky topic.

On one hand, I want them to understand my mission and why it means so much to me. But on the other hand, I am generally private and don’t discuss anything related to sex with friends. So I feel like I’m crossing several boundaries at once. That’s also where the lines get blurred about what circumcision really is. It’s not just about sex. It’s about human rights. I try to approach it from that angle.

One conversation in particular comes to mind. It was with a female friend who I’ve known my entire life. As a gay man, I suppose I’m given a little more leniency with discussing these things as it could have been especially awkward if I were straight. I don’t even remember how we got on the topic, but when I first told her I was restoring my foreskin, there was a noticeable shock in her expression.

“Ewww, why would you want to do that? Foreskins are gross,” she responded.
