Yes, definitely metamorphosis interests me. The skin-shedding metaphor is particularly apt here I think...

I think you're also right about the "what if arousal were permanent?" idea. That particularly makes sense from my perspective where I like the idea of the permanent change from something which is inside (sort of) to making it permanently outside, by unnatural force. And despite that unnatural force, it still becomes an area of pleasure in spite of the violence of the act - and here I mean especially what I've heard about how the scar is the most sensitive part - that's somehow interesting and exciting. It's almost like getting a new organ, I imagine. The way you experience sensation on the circumcised penis is - I imagine - very different to on the uncircumcised one. Guys with adult circs can correct me on this, but I've read it described as having the erogenous zone stretched out down the shaft of your penis, which is quite unlike how I experience pleasure. And then I also imagine the position of scar makes the receiving of pleasure by rubbing that area very different. Rubbing my shaft half way down is not very sensitive at all, so to imagine a high and tight guy being able to come by rubbing a scar area half way down their shaft makes it seem like you have almost an entirely different functionality to your penis. That change is fun to imagine for me.

Fascinating insights, and on reflection, I would be inclined to think what you describe boils down to something less violent than it sounds now: We are talking about an act of restructuring, with optimisation in mind. And by who? Well, if you go through much of our stuff here... women. Right? Could it be that we acucullophiliacs are high on the idea of women making us into the sex machines of their dreams, albeit with a strong penis focus? I think that's really the core of it, isn't it. This is all about full female endorsement through a clever, physical modification, so they can get maximal satisfaction. It may sound like femdom if put that way, but for me, it's more of a deal - it's like, the male gets full access rights to the female by fulfilling this one condition. When I write my stories, the end is always balanced: Yes, she can take the foreskin, but oh boy, is she ever gonna get it then. And she might know it beforehand. So this is not a lopsided power struggle with one winner and one loser, but this is about win-win, for both.

Well, for me anyway.

Years ago, I read a book on dream interpretation. In it, circumcision as a dream symbol denoted a sense of promotion - rising to higher things, gaining access to higher spheres of society, that sort of thing. I feel that is also true on some level, no matter how one views dream interpretation. But if there is a universal connection to the subconscious, how very interesting if that were really how we humans are programmed to view circumcision.

I think for me, the cause was being different from almost every other male I ever encountered. I grew up on the East Coast of the US and in my junior high and high schools, I'd say circ rates were over 95% - in fact I only know for sure of one other guy in my graduating class of ~250 who was uncircumcised, and he was English (he/his parents were from Yorkshire I believe).

I don't think you can grow up in that environment and not develop at least some type of 'I wonder what it's like' feeling - plus 99% of men in porn I ever saw in the 80s and 90s were tightly circumcised, and damn if the women in those films/vids didn't seem to love their cocks!

That also makes a lot of sense.

Interesting though that we both experienced that "wonder what it's like" thought, even though our realities were almost opposites: You were the only uncircumcised one in a circumcised world, and I only ever witnessed the odd circumcised one in an uncircumcised world; yet, it had the same effect on us - fascination.

I can't help thinking that the reason women are attracted to circumcised men is because with the glans exposed by foreskin removal the penis looks like it's in a permanent state of sexual arousal, which is a turn on for potential lovers..... . Put simply, circumcised cocks look ready for sex.... aesthetically beautiful, clean, fresh and desirable.

Yes to what Frecklover just said. I think this is a very strong likelihood.

Yes. "Looking Armed and Dangerous." I agree, that seems the most likely explanation for the phenomenon. Hm. So it's simply "badass" then to be circumcised?
:D

I have tried to find "official" explanations, but only found some universal blurb pointing at paraphilia; and I am not convinced that that actually hits the nail on the head, because many paraphilia can be a lot less logical, if you will, than what we pursue here. To give an example, I don't think a shoe fetish compares easily with acucullophilia, since its object is much further removed from sexuality than an obsession for exposed glanses.

I would even go so far as to question whether acucullophilia is a fetish at all; perhaps it is simply a natural reaction, as some would have towards erect nipples or other things that commonly occur during sex?

In any event, that is my take on it, to make a start with this thread. I am of the opinion that it is probably normal to have erotic thoughts triggered by an exposed glans, since it is a visual cue of arousal; and circumcision then seems to be a mechanical way of making that state permanent, which seems quite alluring when you think about it. Who wouldn't want to live in a state of permanent arousal, and advertise it visually? The fact that this happens in our trousers and not in our face makes it compatible with the modesty requirements of modern life, and thus viable. So, actually, all acucullophilia really is is a little bit of joyful naughtiness with a utopian "what if arousal were permanent?" slant.

And now... you.
:)



I think everyone has their own subconscious reasons for being interested in circumcision. For me, I've narrowed it down to being in the USA and being surrounded by everyone else being circumcised. My younger brother was circumcised, all my friends were circumcised, so for me the circumcised penis was the norm.

The desire to be like everybody else then?
Interesting.
I think it was Oscar Wilde who said "you recognise a true eccentric by his efforts to be like everyone else." I see myself in that, too.

Yes! After my dad had himself done, I was literally the only guy I knew who was uncut.
