The National Organization of Restoring Men is a non-profit support group for men who have concerns about being circumcised, are considering foreskin restoration, or are in the process of restoring their foreskins. Our aim is to help men regain a sense of self-directedness -- physically as well as emotionally.
NORM is dedicated to providing an arena in which circumcised men can share their concerns without fear of being ridiculed for a desire to be intact and whole again. A safe place is provided to discuss goals and learn about methods and techniques of restoration and to discover those methods that will work best for each individual.
Now in its nineteenth year of operation, NORM continues to freely provide information and support to restoring men everywhere.
I've been restoring for almost two months and it's hard to believe, sex with
my wife is getting better. I actually have more feeling. It's great.
I was cut at the age of 11. As the years have passed, I find that stimulation is
difficult to achieve. It seems as though an excess of manipulation, almost to
the point of pain, is necessary to achieve satisfaction.
After thirty years in the natural state, I allowed myself to be circumcised
because, in my physician's view, there might be problems in the future. For
me, the sensitivity in the glans has been reduced at least 50%.
I'm a 17-year-old male who is circumcised. I got to thinking, what am I
missing? It makes me sad because I'm not whole as I was intended to be.
Circumcision has deprived me of the most sensual receptor on my sexual
I'll always be my parents' son, but my body belongs to me and no one else.
No one had my permission to circumcise me. Since there was absolutely no
medical threat from my foreskin, it is a clear violation of my basic human
rights. Could some doctors be giving wrong advice on infant circumcision
because it is a big business in the U.S.?

An organization called Foregen (foregen.org) is promoting the possibility of foreskin restoration through tissue regeneration. Like many modern medical technologies tissue regeneration holds great promise. NORM encourages all research into ways to recreate, as much as possible, one's original foreskin. However at this time we do not feel enough research regarding the use of tissue regeneration for foreskin restoration has been done for NORM to officially take a position on this method. We leave it to each individual to decide for themselves whether they wish to pursue it.
