Medieval Jewish Philosopher Reveals True Purpose of Circumcision

To destroy sexual love

In his book A Guide for the Perplexed, famous Jewish rabbi, physician and philosopher Moses Maimonides, revealed what he and his 10th century peers believed to be the true purpose of circumcision – to destroy sexual love or “lust,” as he calls it.

Here are some shocking excerpts:


Similarly with regard to circumcision, one of the reasons for it is, in my opinion, the wish to bring about a decrease in sexual intercourse and a weakening of the organ in question, so that this activity be diminished and the organ be in as quiet a state as possible.”


Yes, he just admitted the purpose of circumcision is to weaken the penis.


It has been thought that circumcision perfects what is defective congenitally [from birth]. This gave the possibility to everyone to raise an objection and to say: How can natural things be defective so that they need to be perfected from outside, all the more because we know how useful the foreskin is for that member? In fact this commandment has not been prescribed with a view to perfecting what is defective congenitally [at birth], but to perfecting what is defective morally.


Yes, he just called the foreskin a “moral defect.” Apparently God overlooked this defect during creation.


The bodily pain caused to that member is the real purpose of circumcision. None of the activities necessary for … procreation are rendered impossible, but violent concupiscence [sexual desire] and lust that goes beyond what is needed [for procreation] are diminished. The fact that circumcision weakens the faculty of sexual excitement and sometimes perhaps diminishes pleasure is indubitable [unquestionable].


In case you missed it, that was an admission that removing the foreskin not only reduces pleasure (duh, tens of thousands of nerve endings) but also kills the libido/sex drive overtime.

For if at birth this member has been made to bleed and has had its covering taken away from it, it must indubitably [without question] be weakened.
The Sages, may their memory be blessed, have explicitly stated:  It is hard for a woman with whom an uncircumcised man has had sexual intercourse to separate from him. In my opinion this is the strongest of the reasons for circumcision.

And there you have it, the “strongest reason” for circumcision is to destroy the sexual connection or “love bond” between men and women.
