The circumcision of adults triggers minimal cortical reorganization, if any at all. The loss of sexual sensation and pleasure is clearly perceived. Its compensations are sexual and conscious. The circumcision of children before puberty evokes a psychological shift of medial profoundness. The loss of sexual sensitivity could be partly realized because sexuality was partly developed at the time of circumcision. Its compensations tend to remain more or less associated with sexuality and are partly unconscious. Neonatal circumcision produces the profoundest cortical reorganization and psychological transformation. The loss of sensitivity is not realized. Its compensations are maximally dissociated from sexuality and tend to be asexual and entirely unconscious.
