Intaction P.O. Box 370599, Brooklyn, N.Y., 11237 USA
We were formed in 2010 with private donations and volunteer assistance. We seek to achieve our goals through education, advocacy, and activism. We seek to empower our members by providing them a way to get actively involved in the promotion of genital integrity. Our advocacy has generated significant attention for our core issues.
Our events have included disruptive protests, demonstrations, parental education, and raising general awareness on the issues. We employ print media, social media, mobile outreach, and exhibiting at various public events to engage people with our ideas.
Mission Statement and Beliefs:
That every individual has the inalienable right to an intact body. Only an adult of majority age, with fully informed consent, can agree to needless and permanent body modifications.
Intaction promotes an intact positive message so people understand and value the anatomical and psychological importance of an intact body. We seek to raise awareness on this issue in order to end non-therapeutic medicalized infant circumcision and female genital cutting.
We believe everyone is harmed by genital cutting, including boys & girls, mothers & fathers, and doctors & nurses.
- Circumcision harms babies due to the stress and trauma from genital mutilation often done with little or no anesthesia.
- Circumcision harms men due to the trauma, loss of body & genital autonomy, sexual dysfunction, psychological damage, and loss of anatomically functional erogenous tissue.
- Circumcision affects women due to the loss of sexual function from themselves or from their partners.
- Circumcision affects parents when they must endure the lifelong grief stemming from the realization of having harmed their child.
- Circumcision affects doctors & medical staff because many are forced to perform this harmful act to babies against their conscience.
We seek to give those harmed by circumcision the ability to contribute to the cessation of this abhorrent practice. Together we can forge a path to a better world for future generations. All are welcome to join with us.
