Psychoanalysis diverts one’s attention from circumcision
It is convenient for one to consider that one’s sexual frustration has occurred in the past of which he has no memory as a result of imprinted fears from the preceding generations. This view conceals the real physical suppression of sexuality in adults by readdressing it to early childhood and human prehistory. The psychoanalysis diverts the attention from physical factors causing sexual dissatisfaction and masks the role of circumcision in suppressing sexuality. It relieves fathers of the responsibility for the possible suppression they may exert on their sons’ sexuality by circumcising them.
