    Foreskin Restoration: Can It Be Done?

    Let's take an uncut look at an online forum where users seek to undo their circumcisions.

    The forum referenced above is Reddit, which has a fairly active discussion group about foreskin restoration. The final few paragraphs are about intactivism, quoting our very own Ron Low on the subject, and linking to this website:

    For Ron Low, founder TLC Tugger, a restoration device company based in Chicago, intactivism is woven into his business. Low can be found handing out intactivist leaflets at pride parades, medical conventions and baby fairs in cities across America. He's written anti-circumcision parody songs and peppered his online storefront with intactivist literature.

    Low, like the other two restorers, argued that circumcision is a violation of bodily autonomy.

    "Circumcision in North America is most often forced on a healthy child, which is unethical since it could just as easily wait for the patient's informed input," he said.

    Low is not compelled by the positions of public health bodies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), that suggest circumcision might improve sexual health outcomes. His website points to public health bodies such as the Royal Dutch Medical Association, which asserts that "there is no convincing evidence that circumcision is useful or necessary in terms of prevention or hygiene."

    Low said he isn't seeking to ban circumcision outright. Instead, he hopes the procedure can someday be limited to consenting adults—even if that means his devices become obsolete.

    "I respect the rights [of people] to believe what they want to believe, but also I respect the right of that child to grow and be a person that has his own beliefs," he said.
