The erogenous deficiency that paedocircumcision imposes has different aspects. Their individual consideration allows a quick overview of the long-term psychological and psychosocial effects of paedocircumcision.
|Aspects of the Sensorial Deficiency Caused by Pedocircumcision and their Possible Effects|
|UNSPECIFIC||acquisitiveness, possessiveness, materialism, possession-oriented materialistic philosophy|
|SENSORIAL||abstract reasoning, analytic logic, guessing attitude, conceptual reasoning, religious mind-set, insecurity, probabilistic/relativistic science of uncertainty|
|SEXUAL/EROGENOUS||curtailed sexual gratification, anti-sex moral, sexism, polygyny, misogyny, sex discrimination, sexually polarized moral, sex-driven psychology|
|PLEASURE||dissatisfaction, alternative devotions and gratifications, fanaticism|
|EMOTIONAL||insecurity, devotion, uncompromisingness, emotional detachment|
|CHRONIC||insatiability, productivity, prolificacy, enthusiasm, exaggeration, pathos, fanaticism|

Judaism wanted to redirect and subdue sexual energy so it could be utilized by other loftier and socially acceptable activities. The religiousness of Jews and Muslims illustrates well the ability of paedocircumcision to produce devotion. Likewise, the intellectual advance of the integrated Jews compared to their host-nations illustrates neonatal circumcision’s effect on intellectuality. By all appearances paedocircumcision effectively accomplished its objective. It really sublimates sexual energy and alters mental disposition.
By frustrating erogenous sensitivity paedocircumcision forcibly redirects sexual impulse so it unavoidably has social effects. Generally, from the social aspect paedocircumcision facilitates dependence, obedience, collectivism, clannishness, groupism, ethnocentrism, piousness, religious fundamentalism, abstract intellectualism and over productivity. Undoubtedly, the mental effects of paedocircumcision primarily benefit monotheistic values, theocracy and religious systems of government. In atheistic environment they tend to stimulate abstract science, artistry, intellectualism, over productivity, and get-quiche-rich attitudes.
Any deficit stimulates acquisitiveness. The stereotypic Jewish greed may serve as an example of neonatal circumcision’s ability to implant emotional deficit and insecurity. Erogenous deficit stimulates possessiveness. The higher the age at which circumcision is performed, the more and more expressed its sexual component becomes and resembles that which is known as castration anxiety. This is illustrated by the stereotypic sexual possessiveness, polygyny and sexism of Muslims who circumcise their boys latter.
However, no action has only positive consequences. Living organisms are complex balanced systems that any physical manipulation misbalances. Inevitably, the advantages of paedocircumcision whatever they may be are at the expense of something else. Paedocircumcision certainly has side-effects that are outside its goal
Channelling sexuality is socially conditioned. Different times conform to different ideals. It is the social context that evaluates personal characteristics. Eventually, it is history that evaluates both the intended and unintended effects of a neuropsychological intervention. The social benefits of paedocircumcision are culturally determined and are therefore conditional. Certainly they are at the price of personal displeasure, frustration and unhappiness but the subconscious experience of ordinary people is outside the subject of history.
The intended effects of paedocircumcision such as religiousness, docility and alliance have been of primal importance in ancient world. But its unintended side-effects have remained unnoticed or have been considered unimportant. With growth of population, development of sciences and globalization, however, the long-term effects of the practice formed noticeable tendencies. In the long run they caused a substantial ethnoreligious and cultural segregation. Disregard for psychological, unintended or unpleasant consequences of paedocircumcision is a ludicrously inadequate anachronism in modern times.
What’s more, the desirable effects of paedocircumcision in ancient times out to be ridiculously inadequate to rational civilization. Together with its neglected or unforeseen long-term consequences they impede the development of modern civilization and are incompatible with or even hostile to democratic values.
