I've been wondering the same thing. I know both Frecklover and Gemlt maintain Tumblrs (I think Gemlt does) - so perhaps that kind of visual medium is more appealing for a lot of people? I don't really know.

I've also mentioned before, there isn't a lot of material out there for our community, mainly because circumcision in the US is so mainstream it rarely get's mentioned in US porn, and in Europe, there are language barriers in the media that could be searched for. Probably also a lack of cut guys appearing in porn there. I too, really enjoy when a cut cock appears in porn from the UK and Europe but on the occasions when i've seen this, I don't think I've ever seen it referred to. I've posted some German language material that I've translated and I'm always happy to keep looking and doing this. I even thought about suggesting a subforum where we might share links to clips featuring cut guys in non US porn - but I suspect the activity level will be quite low.

I always enjoy updates to pornstar preferences that Deadheart (where did he go?) and andrea share.

And I think, also, there are a few variations on this kink of ours. I have nothing against anyone having a preference for something but perhaps people feel they can't contribute much to some conversations?

No matter how quiet we sometimes are, I'm very grateful to have this community.

I would even say what we have here is probably the only refuge for people like us - sort of the artists and poets on the topic. Yes, there is that Yahoo forum, but it doesn't do much for me at all. And the German one, Eurocirc, while clearly related to our views, is a heavily edited police state where discussions are streamlined and hampered by week-long authorisation intervals.

This place here seems the only place on the web right now where circ fethishists can freely hold forth without interference.

As for numbers: I have an inkling there could be many more in existence than we currently think. They just wouldn't be westerners. I think this fetish can't blossom without exposure to circumcision as something other than a medical procedure; but when you talk to Israelis, Turks, or Koreans, who live with it as a symbol with a high level of importance of usually more cultural than religious significance, you get some clear indicators that circumcision features hugely in their minds. And what features will connect to sexuality every now and then.

We are out there... the question may be, how can we get them in here.

Most of the posts made on this site are text posts, rather than links and/or content. The foreskin forum that is the opposite of this one is far more productive and has more active members.

I definitely have been focusing on my most recent Tumblr lately. Although MrMogensMarvelousMushroom.tumblr.com was and is a fun porn blog, I wanted to go back to the spirit of CircumcisedFTW.tumblr.com, and so I've been putting most of my spare time lately into getting Acucullophilia.tumblr.com started. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of not updating my poor neglected Wix site, but Tumblr is so much easier to update (Wix is a major pain in the ass to work with), and I figured that I could reach more people by making the media shareable than I could by waiting for people to stumble upon my Wix page.

I'm definitely all for creating some subforums to stir the embers of this forum a little. In addition to your own suggestion, I have a couple others in mind. One example is a simple directory of where else we can find each other on the web. Let me know whenever you have any ideas for how to make this site more exciting. I may be short on time these days, but I'm still hoping to make my small contribution to the spread of acucullophilia.

PS, I miss Deadheart too. I was just checking out his epic PlanetSuzy catalog of Cut vs. Uncut Preferences today, and I had forgotten how much work he put into that. I can tell you that for me, that was one of the first times that I found other people that were into this niche interest as well, and that thread was a major influence into my own efforts.

Hmm, apparently phpBB won't let me get into the admin control panel from my iPad, so I'll have to wait until I'm at my PC to make any changes, but I'm on it!

Just an introduction. I am a woman member and didn't post until I knew that I wasn't the only one. It is good to be here.

Hi Jill, a very warm welcome to the forum! I love that we are starting to have female members like yourself on here. I wish there were more of you and hope that there will be! You are the very essence of what this site is all about in my opinion!
