Here is a collection of resourceful information about circumcision, intactivism, and foreskin restoration. Woven in between pieces from my academic work are links to sites that will offer additional information.

This information serves as a resource and does not serve as medical advice. Seek out a physician for medical assistance or consolations, and preferably, an intact-friendly physician.


The Retraction Process of the Foreskin

It is important that everyone have an understanding of the mechanics of the male sexual organ. Below is a diagram of the retraction process of the adult penis… after the foreskin has been naturally retractable by hand.

NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES retract a child’s foreskin. Do not allow anyone, including physicians and nurses, to retract your child’s foreskin.

For more information on the mechanics of the foreskin, refer to the “mechanical” section of Functions of the Foreskin (see below)
