My friend Chris 12o5 is putting together a zine called ‘Once more with morphine’. I’ve not had any experience with morphine, but I do seem to have spent too much time around hospitals in my young adult life. Anyhow, I thought I’d draw a short comic about having my frenulum cut – the short bit of skin that connects the foreskin to the head of the penis – because it was too short (Frenulum breve). According to an article in the Guardian Frenulum breve affects 5% of uncircumcised blokes, but I guess doesn’t get talked about much so thought I’d draw a comic about the process (which was thankfully much less painful than Jonathan Cope who wrote the article on the Guardian!).
p.s. I should point out that some of this is exaggeration, especially the photo of the exploded penis (I found it online whilst looking into the operation, I believed it at the time, less convinced now. It was easier for the consultant to tell me about it in the comic!)!
