A 28-year-old prison inmate in South Dakota who managed only recently to realize he was circumcised wants his foreskin back.
Convicted kidnapper Dean Cochrun is suing the hospital that circumcised him, blaming the age-old procedure — and not, say, his being in prison — for his lackluster sex life, The Associated Press reported.
"I was recently made aware of the fact that I had been [circumcised] and that... I was robbed of sensitivity during sexual intercourse as well as the sense of security and well-being I am entitled to in my person," he said in the suit.
He claims in the suit he filed Friday that 28 years ago, a doctor at then-named Sanford Hospital, where he was born, misled his mother into thinking the circumcision was medically necessary.
His missing foreskin could have saved his sexual prowess, and now he wants the hospital to reattach it "in the hopes I could feel whole again" — assuming, perhaps, that the hospital still has it 28 years later.
He said he knows the restoration probably won't be more than aesthetic, however, and he also wants $1,000 in compensatory and punitive damages, according to the AP.
