Cool find! I'd heard of this magazine, but only knew that it wasn't in circulation any more. Do you remember where you found all of these?

Sadly the file seems to have disappeared. It is a very important resource. Could someone please re-post this somewhere?

Thank you so much for posting this. I think that the Acorn archive is a real treasure. I hadn't heard about it until I got on to this site. It seems to pick up from where UK magazines Health and Efficiency (nudist and edited by the very pro-circ editor Leslie Bainbridge) and Forum. These were for some time the only publications where pro-circumcision opinions were welcome.

I am still reading through Acorn but was delighted to find several references to pubic shaving (which many consider complementary to circumcision) and female circumcision including a letter from a woman who had her clitoris hood removed.

She clearly supports circumcision. Here are excerpts from her letter:

I read in my husband’s copy of Acorn the rather negative view one woman
had of circumcision and your request for other women’s views. Although the
popularity of circumcision is decreasing, I remain a supporter.

Although I always, or nearly always enjoyed sex, I never climaxed until after
I received a female circumcision. A girl friend told me how circumcision had
improved sex for her. Perhaps the foreskin of my clitoris was excessively long
as hers had been and was hooding my clitoris. I made an appointment with her
doctor and found that not only was my foreskin too long but it was excessively
thick and needed to be removed. I let him circumcise me, and wow what a
difference it made. The sensations after that were so strong that I came again
and again during sex. In this type of female circumcision just the foreskin
is removed making the glans of the clitoris more exposed to stimulation.

I have discussed circumcision with many women. Most don’t give much
thought to the topic. They are not sufficiently convinced
of the benefits of female circumcision to have themselves or their daughters
circumcised.


She also speaks of an experience with an intact man:

Also I always feltthat his penis was not as clean as that of a circumcised boy. I had previously
told him how interesting and exciting his foreskin was, hence he was shocked
when I told him that if our relationship was to continue, he would have to get
circumcised. He confided that his foreskin had always been an embarrassment
to him. The only reason that he had not gotten circumcised was that he feared
his sexual pleasure would be diminished without a foreskin. I told him that
more likely circumcision would increase his sexual pleasure, and told him of
my own experience. So he had it done and had the best sex he had ever had
after his circumcision healed.
