Circumcision causes erogenous deficiency and deeply affects the subconscious life. The physical and emotional deprivation it imposes reduces the ability to adapt and to gain satisfaction. Circumcision induces the Circumcision complex that has a wide range of psychological compensations. The compensations of the Circumcision complex as that of any other psychological syndrome may be regarded as neuroses. Therefore the circumcision-induced neuroses coincide with the compensations of the Circumcision complex.
In effect the sexual frustration that circumcision imposes is analogous to the fear of father in the Oedipus complex. It stands to reason that circumcision can facilitate development of the Oedipus complex and that circumcision neuroses may manifest as castration anxiety.
