Healing Circumcision: Work with Scars
The first movie below is a general introduction to the topic of infant circumcision and to this free online program for healing. Three short films by somatic sex educators Caffyn Jesse and Beth Athena describe healing touch sessions that can be offered to circumcised people by a partner, friend, or somatic sex educator. Procedures for manual foreskin restoration are shown in the fifth and final video by somatic sex educator Thomas Stout. The work is oriented to bringing more awareness to the scars of circumcision, while increasing sensitivity of nerve endings in the circumcised penis, and expanding the pleasure that is possible. Big emotions related to infant trauma can arise when doing work with scars. The primary benefit of these sessions comes through the loving attention, space for emotions, and healing intent that is used in touching the penis.
