your story

Every person has a story about the ways in which male child genital cutting has impacted them, and many of these stories have yet to be told. Intact America’s Skin in the Game Voices series is a continuation of our organization’s original Voices series, started in 2017. These pieces are brought to you by the brave individuals who have witnessed the lifelong harm caused by involuntary genital cutting, and who hope to see this abuse of human rights come to an end in the United States.


The participants of Intact America’s Skin in the Game campaign know that by sharing their stories, they may contribute to circumcision’s permanent discontinuance. New stories are published from the varying perspectives of circumcised men, intact men, regretful parents, intactivists, medical insiders, queer individuals, and impacted partners. The Skin in the Game Voices series explores topics related to circumcision complications, psychological trauma, sexual dysfunction, ethical opposition, parental regret, relationships, ethnicity, and more.

“You are negatively impacting this young man's sexual well-being for his future, for no reason.” - Clayton B. Stephens
