The Journal of Sex Research Vol/Iss. 2(2) Taylor and Francis, Ltd. Published In Pages: 69-88
By Weiss, Charles


Weiss examines the ethnological, medical, and psychoanalytic literature to better understand what incites preliterate and literate societies to practice male circumcision. The review suggests there is vast cross-cultural variability for the operation and the resulting implications, or lack thereof, but no hypothesis tests are made.


A review with no statistical analyses.
