Psychological research has concentrated on parental and environmental phenomenon, and the urological disciplines do not include sexual behaviour. Scientific research has overlooked this area of human sexuality.

This site discusses phimosis in its specific forms of phimotic ring, frenulum breve, adhesions or skinbridges. During erection these conditions inhibit the relationship between foreskin and glans. This functionally restricts the erection, and thus has an effect on the sexuality. With our culture's attitudes on health care, it would be appropriate to encourage early prevention.

Over the years I've met a lot of different ways of rejecting the realities of foreskin conditions.

Recently (1997) an idea I've heard often from modern healers and practioners of alternative medicine, is that my experience with foreskin conditions is all a sort of spiritual problem which is ultimately my own choice. I feel this idea may have a place in some forms of therapy when an individual wont take responsibility for his life etc.... but consider the concept of karma for a moment, surely some things are choices, some are consequences. - We dont just always choose, this is a ridiculous idea, we are not God, we may strive to be free but we are bound in this wheel of consequences.

In a practical sense to follow your idea to conclusions; children choose lots of other problems: diphtheria, tonsillitis, being beaten by their Dad, even lack of nourishment or an early death ... But, all these other problems are checked for and/or prevented when possible.

I believe t his new "choice" idea is merely a new word for "free will"; Western philosophers have been stumbling over the question of "free will or fate" for centuries. I believe this question is predetermined by our speech patterns. Our grammar perpetually confirms the impression of either an I that does, or an I which is done to,.. . either subject or object .... our understanding is moulded by these parameters, ... but things would happen anyway, without any I choosing them to happen ....

It COULD be your own choice is maybe a better way to think and be able to stimulate creative thought.
