LINKS REGARDING “BASHFUL BLADDER SYNDROME”


The following links will explain the Bashful Bladder Syndrome in more detail.  There is also a link (Uncommon Help) which tells you other ways to overcome BBS.


It is interesting to note that the first five of the links below are all American!  I find that quite amazing, as in my case my BBS was totally related to my uncircumcised penis, whereas of course the vast majority of American men ARE circumcised, so they have other causes for their Paruresis.


Anyway, the final link is to the UK Paruresis Trust which has lots of good info on Paruresis and also a forum where you can talk to others who are working through their recoveries.



PARURESIS  IS A TYPE OF PHOBIA IN WHICH THE SUFFERER IS UNABLE TO URINATE IN THE REAL OR IMAGINARY PRESENCE OF OTHERS, SUCH AS IN A PUBLIC RESTROOM.  (The analogous condition that affects bowel movement is called parcopresis).

WHAT IS PARURESIS?

http://www.urologyhealth.org/urology/index.cfm?article=107


BASHFUL BLADDER SYNDROME IS THE INABILITY TO INITIATE URINATION WHEN IN THE COMPANY OF OTHERS.

IT HAS BEEN ESTIMATED THAT ONE IN TEN AMERICANS SUFFERS TO SOME DEGREE FROM “BASHFUL BLADDER” SYNDROME, THE CHRONIC INABILITY TO USE A PUBLIC BATHROOM WHEN NATURE CALLS. A MAN WILL STEP UP TO A URINAL AND NOTHING HAPPENS EVEN THOUGH HE HAS A BURSTING BLADDER.

HOW TO STOP SHY BLADDER SYNDROME http://www.uncommonhelp.me/articles/how-to-stop-shy-bladder-syndrome/


A UK CHARITY (REG. NO. 1109541) DEDICATED TO HELPING MEN AND WOMEN FOR WHOM URINATING IN THE PRESENCE OR VICINITY OF OTHER PEOPLE, IS DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE, AND DEALING WITH THE PROBLEMS THIS BRINGS ABOUT. THIS ANXIETY BASED CONDITION USED TO BE LISTED UNDER THE CATEGORY OF SOCIAL PHOBIA, BUT IT IS NOW PREFERRED TO REFER TO PARURESIS AS A SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER. THE CONDITION IS ALSO KNOWN BY A NUMBER OF OTHER NAMES INCLUDING "AVOIDANT PARURESIS", "SHY BLADDER SYNDROME" AND "PEE SHYNESS". IT IS SOMETIMES GROUPED ALONG WITH OTHER CONDITIONS UNDER THE TERM "TOILET PHOBIA".

LINKS REGARDING THE RETRACTION OF THE FORESKIN FOR BABIES/YOUNG CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT CIRCUMCISED


For those parents who decide against having their young sons circumcised (and I do so hope there aren’t many), you may find the useful information - regarding the retraction of your son’s foreskin - contained in the following links, where the subject is discussed on forums, helpful.  The last discussion has made my eyes water somewhat!

INTERNATIONAL BRIS ASSOCIATION

RITUAL CIRCUMCISION


The Jewish ritual of circumcision, called bris and performed by a trained mohel who is an expert in both the operation and its religious significance.


“The customs and laws pertaining to circumcision are derived from the Bible, Talmud, and Jewish tradition, all of which have been meticulously passed down from generation to generation.”


“The Mitzvah of circumcision is primarily to be done on the eighth day from birth. However, in certain circumstances, adult males will require a Bris. This is most common among Jews from the Former Soviet Union who have never been circumcised due to long-standing Communist prohibition of Jewish religious practice.”

“HOW CIRCUMCISION BROKE THE INTERNET”


This article on the Slate website details an anti-circumcision lobbying fringe group attempting to “turn the internet against circumcision”:


A fringe group is drowning out any discussion of facts

By Mark Joseph Stern


“The anti-circumcision voice is a disproportionately loud one.


“There are facts about circumcision—but you won’t find them easily on the Internet.  Parents looking for straightforward evidence about benefits and risks are less likely to stumble across…”
