"If I Were a Boy"
Copied from https://youtu.be/-prf5m-X_Oo
On August 5, 2014, Elite Daily featured a story with pictures of 12 of its female employees holding signs that stated what each of them would do differently if they were men. Elizabeth Baugh, one of the women featured in the article, held a sign with the message "#IfIWereABoy I'd be able to make choices about my own body." Elizabeth's message ignores that, annually in the United States, over one million male and intersex children are subjected to forced genital modifications. This project catalogs messages from individuals whose bodily autonomy would have been denied if they were male. Their statements use the same format as the signs held in the Elite Daily article.
Some quotes by women.
"My partner is uncircumcised and quite frankly is a much better, gentler lover than any I was with before him. He doesn't need to pound to feel sensation, and the foreskin allows smooth gliding. It's easier on a woman’s body when a male is not circumcised."
"While I can see (and see all around me) that some women are willing to put up with being married to circumcised men, I cannot fathom why, except that they are ignorant of what they are missing. From a woman's perspective, circumcised sex really is not good at all. It's awful. It's irritating. Compared to what sex is meant to be, it is so far unrelated I don't see why it is even called sex. Putting up with that for years and years, even with lubricant, is not, in my humble opinion, a sane decision."
"I simply cannot imagine making love for years and years with a circumcised man. This may seem shallow, and you are right to question this and to find fault with it, and with me. But I still cannot bring myself to imagine it. As the woman who posted mentions, intercourse with a circumcised man is truly painful. It is not spiritually or emotionally satisfying. It hurts."
"I realize that women do, routinely, marry and stay married to circumcised men, and that they find happiness in their marriages and in the kindness of their husbands. But I still cannot imagine consciously making such a huge sacrifice. I do not know how they do it. Is this shallow? I am not sure. Certainly if sex is important to keeping the marriage bond strong, then it is not shallow. Sex cannot make a marriage stronger if it is continually putting one of the partners through pain and distress."
"I have been penetrated a few times by people who are not whole and each time I feel the uncomfortable feeling of too much friction, it does not happen with a man that has an intact penis, as a result I will not let anyone who is circumcised screw me."
"For too long I have blamed myself for our sexual problems when circumcision was the culprit."
"Nothing sexy or healthy about a butchered penis....."
"The only time I ever used any kind of lubricant was with a circumcised man."
"Circumcised intercourse feels like a friction burn. With the natural penis, the extra skin makes it go smoother...my vagina doesn't get sore."
"I don't enjoy it. It's harsh and unforgiving. I feel very sorry for American women."
"During intercourse, I would become dry and raw and the soreness would last for several days afterward. It would take my husband up to a half an hour of constant thrusting for him to reach climax no matter how close he felt to achieving it. Due to the pumping action, so much air would be pushed in that I would feel discomfort in my abdomen. Usually I would have to sit or stand up several times in order to push it out. Sometimes when he climaxed it would burn like salt in a wound, so we usually used condoms, which he hated."
"For our entire marriage, our sex life could only be measured in months, and that was too much for me. I did not like to see him naked or even have him cuddle up to me at night. I did not want to see or feel his penis. I associated it with pain and discomfort, so it was an ugly thing."
"Through the years I have always had questions that I kept secret. Was my husband not really 'Mr. Right'? Was I a lesbian and just did not know it? Was I just not meant to enjoy sex? What was my problem? Everyone else had enough moisture and enjoyed sex, so why not me? Finally, I found out the function of the foreskin and a great big 'ah-ha' went off in my head. I was not the problem, but rather, the circumcision."
"I had one circumcised lover who was setting a Guinness record - and after 30 minutes I would start to feel as if he were sandpapering me down there."
"I watched a video where this guy had a contraption that he wears all day long to slowly stretch the skin he has left so it feels like foreskin. I thought it was really sad that he has to do that. It shows how severely violated these men feel that they go through all that."
