Art

Postby Cufflinks » Sun Feb 11, 2018 10:55 am

I wonder if there is any art (sculptures, paintings...) on the theme of women and circumcised penises? I did notice there is an enormous amount of hentai blowjobs, titjobs, and handjobs on the web. Perhaps something can be found there?

Edit: wow. Just do a Google image search on "hentai circumcised". There is a lot there.

Well, off I go then, first post on my own topic:

There seems to be this whole, bizarre thing about chicks with circumcised dicks going on - oddly compelling, actually. Two attractions in one...

What is this, I wonder?

"Initial lesson of circumcision boy"?
Those Japanese illustrations are always so exquisitely drawn.

I think it's weird that within hentai there are a few very specific niches that seem to feature circumcised men. First of all, you have the artwork of Kami Tora, an illustrator that I assume is from the West because of the circumcision style featured in his artwork (several examples of which show up at the top of the Google Image search that you mention). I include his art as a category because he is in my opinion the only hentai artist that exclusively draws distinctly circumcised penises (and even has a tutorial for how to draw them). I like Kami Tora's heterosexual art a lot, but his catalog is largely devoted to futanari artwork, the category that probably makes up the largest proportion of hentai on the internet that features circumcised penises (even more than hentai featuring straight couples). I consider myself an extremely open-minded individual, and futanari art doesn't offend me or anything. That said, the concept of the beautiful woman with a penis does nothing to get me off or anything. I’m genuinely kind of astounded by the popularity of the genre.

The next category of hentai that commonly features circumcised penises is "furry"-themed artwork. Again, not something that offends me, but not something that I personally understand as erotic. If this does happen to be your thing (hey, no judgement here), I would suggest starting at rule34.xxx (FYI, if you aren't familiar with the term, Rule 34 is roughly that 'if you can imagine it, there is porn somewhere on the internet of it'), and is most often applied to bizarre hardcore mashups of childhood cartoon characters.

Finally, it's probably worth noting that there's something lost in translation when it comes to the Japanese term for "circumcised." The closest thing to a literal translation would be "katsurei o okanau," or (by my very rough understanding) "to do the cutting ritual." That said, this term is virtually never used because of the minuscule number of Japanese Jews and Muslims for whom the phrase would apply. Instead, the more common term is "hokei no shujutsu": "operation on a phimotic penis”. Apparently, there is some belief within Japan that there is an abnormally high prevalence of men with the combination of a small glans and long foreskin; leading to a large number of phimotic ("hokei") men. This being regarded as undesirable among women, cosmetic circumcisions have purportedly been on the rise as of late. Lastly, a third term, "mukeru" ("to roll back") is used to distinguish non-phimotic men from those that are "hokei." This last term and its variants may also idiomatically be used to describe circumcised men as well, and the term "muke" is probably the closest term the Japanese have to "cut." All of this is perhaps a long-winded way of saying that even when you a Japanese word translated to "circumcised," it very rarely seems to actually indicate complete foreskin removal. My suspicion, based on the contexts that I have seen, is that it is most frequently an improper translation of "rolled back."

For what it's worth, most of the information from the last paragraph comes from Genaro Castro=Vazquez's Male Circumcision in Japan.

I should say, I’m not 100% sure about these Japanese translations, so anybody with a better knowledge of the language is welcome to correct me.

Wow, what an impressive response! Thank you so much. I shall work my way through these soon, and post select examples here.

Having visited Japan, and liking it very much, I have to say I am quite thrilled by the way they approach this topic. In a way, Japan's culture is perhaps the only one I am aware of that is culturally acucullophiliac, given their view of the foreskin, which is that it needs to be invisible. You are probably aware of this, but it seems to be entirely unacceptable in Japan to be seen with a covered glans in public baths.

So, the likelihood of finding niche artwork for us there is probably high.

Japanese (and Korean) culture are quite open sexually - surprisingly so considering the image we have of the Japanese being a rather closed but very polite people. I was quite astounded when i was there last year to see guys looking at very explicit comics in public and nobody seemed to bat an eye. I think not having any Christian background probably sees them thinking without the normal 'constraints' we would see in the west.

But pubic hair is evil and must be pixellated!

This never fails to confuse the hell out of me. Some of the most outlandish porn on Earth comes from Japan, but has to be pixellated. Likewise, I’m not sure what’s going on with the hentai where the censorship involves a single black bar that completely fails to obscure the genitals it’s supposed to be covering.

I know, right? It's like, they have to be seen to have made an attempt...but that'll do!
