Landmark Foreskin Restoration Survey: Document Your Experiences. Tell Researchers How to Improve Medical Care. Those who have been, or are currently engaged in, manual foreskin restoration methods are invited to participate in a landmark survey to document motivations for and experiences with restoration, as well as experiences with medical and/or mental health professionals. This population has never been researched to any great degree by the medical or mental health communities.
Whether you've been restoring for 6 weeks or for 6 years, or even if you've abandoned restoration, this survey is for you!
The survey is open to anyone over the age of 18 within or outside of the U.S. who was:
born with a penis or assigned male at birth (including intersex and transgender persons);
circumcised as a child without their consent or who later voluntarily chose circumcision;
and is/was engaged in foreskin restoration methods, even if the process was abandoned
The online survey, conducted by independent researcher Tim Hammond and Principal Investigator Lauren Sardi, PhD of Quinnipiac University, seeks to gain insights into motivations for and experiences with restoration, as well as experiences with medical and/or mental health professionals. The survey should take most participants less than 30 minutes to complete and offers an opportunity to upload up to five (5) photographs of their restoration journey.
Data from the survey will be analyzed and submitted for publication to a respected medical, sexology or men's health journal. It is hoped that these findings will contribute to a better understanding of those engaged in restoration, lead to the creation of suitable support services, and contribute valuable new insights into discussions about a child's right to bodily integrity, especially when involving permanent alterations to intimate parts of the body.
The survey will be open until at least September 30, 2021. Those interested in participation are encouraged to take the survey at one of the following links, both of which are case sensitive.
