Circumcision: Healing Touch for Scars
Somatic Sex Educators Demonstrate Scar Remediation
Circumcision is a violent procedure that many infant boys have been subjected to. Through scar tissue remediation, it is possible to recover sensitivity and expand sexual sensation. In five short movies, somatic sex educators Caffyn Jesse and Beth Athena show how knowledgeable touch and focused caring presence can bring healing to the physical and psychological wounds of circumcision - through pleasure!Healing touch sessions bring more awareness to the scars of circumcision, while increasing sensitivity of nerve endings in the circumcised penis, and expanding the pleasure that is possible. Big emotions related to infant trauma can arise when doing work with scars. The primary benefit of these sessions comes through the loving
attention, space for emotions, and healing intent that is used in touching the penis.
The first short movie is a general introduction to the topic of infant circumcision and to this free online program. The next three videos show the basics of scar-tissue work. Procedures for manual foreskin restoration are shown in the fifth and final video by somatic sex educator Thomas Stout.
