| Dear IntactiPedia Viewers,
Thank you always for your devoted viewership and support of this wiki up until now. We have an important announcement regarding upcoming changes to this website.
"IntactiPedia" is becoming "IntactWiki"
IntactiPedia developers have come to the conclusion that a name like "IntactiPedia" limits our scope to human genital anatomy and genital cutting as it pertains to medicine, human anatomy, and academic study, where we would like for this wiki to become a knowledge base for intactivism. We would like to widen the scope of this wiki to include other aspects on genital anatomy and genital cutting, for example, the history of genital cutting, genital cutting advocacy, advocates of genital cutting, ethics, litigation, legislation, intactivism, human rights, and more.
To reflect our purpose more accurately, we have decided to undergo the following changes:
Thank you all for your viewership and support, and we hope you will continue frequenting us in the future.
| As with all wikis, Intactipedia is a work in progress. We strive to make Intactipedia the ultimate resource for doctors, parents, and scholars who would like to find complete information on male and female anatomy. The following pages are under construction. Feel free to browse and add information, always citing your sources.
You can also browse articles by category.

| The trend of opinion on routine male circumcision is overwhelmingly negative in industrialized nations. No respected medical board in the world recommends circumcision for infants, not even in the name of HIV prevention. They must all point to the risks, and they must all state that there is no convincing evidence that the benefits outweigh these risks. To do otherwise would be to take an unfounded position against the best medical authorities of the West. Read the position statements on major medical organizations in the world here.
Doctors often instruct parents to forcibly retract the foreskin under the pretext of hygiene, but this is mistaken and dangerous advice. To learn more about forced retraction, click here.
Smegma was once implicated as a carcinogenic by advocates of circumcision. Some may yet stubbornly insist that smegma is a cancer causing agent, but this assertion is false. Click here to learn more about smegma.
