The Start in 1994 and My Personal Bias
|I admit to a very strong personal bias. I started this site with
the intention of demonstrating that boys must be checked before puberty.
This bias is based on my personal experience. It was almost immediately
after discovering my condition at the tender age of 43, that I knew this should have been checked before puberty.
My personal experience was quite extreme, I have heard only few
similar cases. At the beginning of puberty during the first explorations
of my male body and masturbation, pulling my foreskin back had an effect
which was difficult and painful. People avoid difficulty and pain, and
so, as one would
expect from any healthy little boy, I learnt to avoid retracting my foreskin.
Both expert and popular thinking maintain that sexual disturbances
are always caused by environment or upbringing and parents, this contradicts
One could say the energy behind this site was generated by the conflict
between my personal experience and our cultures normal understanding
of sexual behaviour.
I`m the sort of person who writes, - my note book is a like a friend
who I discuss things with - writing is a form of therapy. At first
(July 94), I wrote by hand and then as the quantity of paper increased
I decided to buy my first computer in Christmas 94/95 - I didn`t know
what I was writing - maybe a book.
Around this time the world started
to learn about Internet, but in those days even computer experts in
Europe had no real ideas what this was or how to get on it. I persevered
and by Feb. 96 I was on-line with Version One of the first circumcision/phimosis site in Europe and the first 8 pages.
