The links here are chosen not for their stance for or against circumcision but for the quality and usefulness of the information they contain. But of course, above all, I have sought to find sites which are balanced in their attitude.
"Circumcision is a very popular procedure. The purpose of this website is to provide a balanced up-to-date evidence-based review of scientific studies on male circumcision that have been published mainly in reputable international medical and scientific journals after a formal, critical refereeing process by experts in the field."
Information-packed site covering every aspect of circumcision from an unashamedly pro-circumcision viewpoint, authored by Professor Brian Morris, a leading authority in the field.
A simple, non-flashy site providing balanced information for both parents making decisions about their baby sons and adults considering circumcision. Awarded by both ABCs of Parenting (4 star) and Britannica. Has a good selection of further links.
An extremely wide-ranging, and sometimes sexually explicit, site covering all aspects of circumcision. A spinoff from the now-defunct Circlist discussion group. You will find things here that you won't find anywhere else (for better or for worse). As of 2015 it's under new ownership and gradually being tidied up.
The Jewish ritual of circumcision, called bris and performed by a trained mohel who is an expert in both the operation and its religious significance. Interesting reading for Jews and Gentiles alike.
A vehemently anti-circumcision site but it is beautifully constructed and has a huge and useful library of online references (based on a bold disregard for matters of copyright). Well worth a visit.
"I chose to be circumcised. These are my reasons and my experience, and why you might choose it too."
A website for men considering adult circumcision, including a chat room. It does not deal with infant circumcision.
