Consultation, Counseling, and Referrals

Man on phone

For Men

A growing number of men are dissatisfied with their circumcision but are afraid to talk about it. Circumcised men need not feel resigned to their emotional or sexual condition. Individual telephone counseling and consultation can give them help, advice, and support for meeting their needs. Intact (not circumcised) men may also use counseling to discuss unresolved concerns.


For Parents

Some parents report that if they could take back one decision, it would be their son’s circumcision. As the public learns about circumcision, expectant parents are realizing that the issue needs serious attention. Sometimes one spouse wants a son circumcised and the other does not. There is no compromise. This complex and emotional issue can create unwelcome stress. A consultation can assist in alleviating the stress associated with resolving the circumcision issue so that more attention can be given to other birth-related priorities.


For Students

A growing number of students are investigating and reporting on circumcision in various ways. Our resources and referrals can facilitate these activities, contribute to a better result, and save valuable time.



Because we do not receive foundation or government support, those who use our services are asked to contribute. Proceeds support our mission of raising awareness about circumcision. If we cannot respond to a particular question, there is no charge. Short answers (maximum 50 words by email or 5 minutes by telephone) shall be ten dollars per request. (Unlimited short consultation is available for members only. Fill out the Membership Form to become a member.) Longer responses and telephone counseling shall be billed $40 per quarter-hour.
