Psychoanalysis conceals the psychological impact of circumcision
Just like preputial sensitivity is unknown to Freud so the circumcision neuroses are imperceptible to Freudian psychology. No matter how truthful its central concept may be psychoanalysis lacks the capacity to understand the long-term psychological consequences of circumcision. Being a psychological projection of paedocircumcision psychoanalysis does not identify circumcision’s mental effects. It does not recognize the circumcision-caused sexual frustrations and neuroses. It fails to expose the relation of sexual anxieties to circumcision. In effect, psychoanalysis conceals the psychological consequences of paedocircumcision and therefore aids its spreading.
