There are no words to describe how powerful, how compelling a penis with a foreskin is and how one's life revolves around it. Circumcision did not eliminate masturbation, but it took away its intense pleasure, its extreme sweetness. It was wet like the inside of my mouth for 25 years. I wanted everyone who had not been through it to experience it.

Circumcision is getting it [one's penis] back broken, bleeding, in great pain, with its most delicate, sensitive parts cut off, permanently weakened . . .

The glans eventually dried out (a process that took over a year). Before circumcision my erections would be extremely strong. Now the erection is weaker and the penis does not get so terribly stiff. --From a letter to Rosemary Romberg, author of Circumcision: The Painful Dilemma, from a man in Florida, circumcised at 25
