The Revolution Will Not Be Circumcised. Join Us.
Did you know that the male foreskin can have its own orgasms? With your support, CAN-FAP founder Glen Callender and his foreskin will teach the world how to "foregasm", and revolutionize the circumcision debate.
The CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis will be an unprecedented online foreskin education resource that will be a game-changer in the growing child circumcision controversy. It will examine the anatomy and function of the male foreskin in greater detail than ever previously attempted, and reveal fascinating foreskin phenomena that few people know about.
With its illuminating anatomical diagrams and impressive foreskin demonstration videos, the CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis will prove to any reasonable person that foreskin is valuable, and essential to a full sexual experience. It will give intact men a new appreciation for (and enjoyment of) their foreskin, it will show circumcised men what they are missing, and it will leave expecting parents with a vivid understanding of what their son will lose forever if they have him circumcised. Imagine a not-too-distant future where any discussion about circumcision must acknowledge that the foreskin is the most sensitive and erogenous part of the penis, and that the foreskin is capable of orgasm. This is the future that the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project is dedicated to building.
This is a big project — the culmination of more than five years of development — and community support is needed to make it a reality. Support the CAN-FAP 2014 Foregasm Fundraiser! Help CAN-FAP create a revolutionary
online guide to the intact penis, and collect unique foreskin art!
About CAN-FAP and Glen Callender
Hello! I am Glen Callender, a Vancouver-based writer, comedian and multidisciplinary foreskin artist. I love my foreskin, and I created the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (CAN-FAP) in 2010 to realize my vision of a more positive genital autonomy movement that emphasizes pro-foreskin messages over anti-circumcision messages.
Over the past four years, my unique and provocative foreskin activism has made CAN-FAP Canada’s best-known foreskin advocacy group, and made me Canada’s best-known foreskin advocate. Here’s a summary of some major projects I have undertaken through CAN-FAP:
In 2010, I created FORESKIN AWARENESS BOOTH, an acclaimed 20-minute live educational-comedy foreskin show that has been performed for over 3500 foreskin-curious folks in Victoria, Vancouver, Whistler, Edmonton, Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City. This show will eventually be released online so everyone can pay a virtual visit to the CAN-FAP Foreskin Awareness Booth. (See an NSFW excerpt from the show here.)
In 2011, I created THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE CIRCUMCISED, a mix of multimedia and live foreskin performance — think Puppetry of the Penis meets An Inconvenient Truth — that serves up a hilarious and horrifying crash course in the value of foreskin and the harm of circumcision. I presented TRWNBC at the 2011 Outgames Human Rights Conference, the 2012 San Francisco Fringe Festival, and the 2013 Interpride World Conference, and in 2014 I will be taking it to several Canadian universities. TRWNBC will eventually be developed into a live show, documentary, book and website, all of which will incorporate material from the CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis.
In 2012, I created FORESKIN PRIDE, a new international Pride movement that is spreading like wildfire across the North American Pride landscape. FORESKIN PRIDE unites and ignites Pride genital autonomy activism from coast to coast with a Pride-friendly and media-friendly common message. And it works: FORESKIN PRIDE has been covered by Al Jazeera English, and received press coverage in Canada, the USA and as far afield as the UK Daily Mail and Israel's Haaretz. Celebrated in two cities in 2012 and nine cities in 2013, FORESKIN PRIDE will be celebrated in at least 16 cities in 2014.
Glen being belittled for his foreskin advocacy by Sun TV's Micheal Coren:
In 2013, I mounted one of the more memorable intactivist actions of recent years, a four-city protest of Oprah Winfrey's Canadian arena tour condemning her use and promotion of a foreskin-based wrinkle cream. These protests received newspaper, radio and TV coverage in Canada, the USA, and UK, and even got me invited on TMZ Live to debate circumcision with Harvey Levin:
And so far in 2014, I mounted another memorable protest, this time against Bill Gates for his foundation's funding of mass circumcision campaigns in Africa. The protest was front-page news in Vancouver and attracted the attention of The Washington Post, VICE, and talk show host Seth Meyers (see below).
Over the past four years, I have established myself as a leading intactivist newsmaker and media personality, and I did it with no publicist, a shoestring budget, and a really basic website. With your generous support, I will take the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project to the next level. And with your generous support, I will create the definitive guide to the anatomy, function and pleasure potential of the intact penis, using my own foreskin to demonstrate the huge contribution the foreskin makes to male sexuality.
The CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis: A Revolutionary Online Sex Ed Resource
For the past four years I have been teaching a seminar ("Foreskin 101") where I explore the anatomy, function and pleasure potential of the intact penis by discussing recent foreskin research and screening educational demonstration videos of me stimulating my foreskin to achieve several different foreskin orgasms (or "foregasms"). The time has come — so to speak — to put these videos online as part of the CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis, and revolutionize the circumcision debate.
For a (most definitely NSFW) preview of four foregasm demonstration videos — demonstrating the substantial orgasmic potential of the penile frenulum ("frem") and ridged band ("O-Ring') — click here. These videos and more will be part of the first edition of the CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis.
The guide will be structured so intactivists can easily link to specific information when trying to convince parents not to circumcise, or when discussing the contribution of foreskin to male sexuality. In addition to demonstrating the various foregasms, educational objectives of the CAN-FAP Guide to the Intact Penis include:
- Busting the popular myth that the foreskin is "just extra skin" that contributes nothing to male sexual experience, by demonstrating that the foreskin is the most sensitive, erogenous and orgasmic part of the penis
- Countering the popular misconception that "women don't have foreskin" by demonstrating that women do have a foreskin (the clitoral hood) which has the same essential form and function as the male foreskin
- Showing women how much damage would have to be done to the vulva to match the damage inflicted by male circumcision
- Showing women how male circumcision causes sexual harm to the circumcised man's female partner
Your support is needed to finance these aspects of the project:
- The creation of text-book quality graphics and anatomical diagrams
- Shooting of new high-definition videos to better document the various foregasms
- Allowing me to work full-time on this large-scale project, much of which will be incorporated into the The Revolution Will Not Be Circumcised show and book
- Overhaul the CAN-FAP website with a slicker, more professional design and optimal cross-platform functionality, especially for mobile devices
- Upgrade CAN-FAP's website hosting to better deliver reliable streaming video
- AND MORE!!!
Original Foreskin Art: An Iconic Penis Perk
UPDATE: IndieGogo won't let us embed Glen's video response to Seth Meyers here due to its artistic nudity, but you can watch it on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/89889177 (NSFW)
Glen wouldn't launch CAN-FAP's first fundraiser without offering some truly extraordinary perks. And that's why supporters of the CAN-FAP 2014 Foregasm Fundraiser will be rewarded with spectacular, limited-edition foreskin art for all budgets and tastes. Imagine hanging this art in your house, folks! You'll make friends. You'll influence people. You'll make smiles out of frowns. You'll be the talk of the town!
Two types of iconic CAN-FAP foreskin art are available: Foreskin Paintings and Foreskin Prints.
Iconic CAN-FAP 8" x 8" Foreskin Painting: 1/$50, 4/$150, 8/$250 + postage
These are original acrylic-on-foreskin-on-canvas foreskin paintings, created by CAN-FAP founder Glen Callender and his foreskin. Each piece is unique, because each foreskin impression is a unique and beautiful sexual snowflake. This compelling sexual revolutionary art — created with and celebrating the very body part that certain cultures and religions are obsessed with destroying — is guaranteed to increase in value as the genital autonomy movement advances.
The historic first limited edition of iconic CAN-FAP Foreskin Paintings will be available exclusively to supporters of this indiegogo fund-raiser (the edition will be limited to the number of Foreskin Painting perks claimed), and Glen will sign each piece to confirm authenticity. Own an essential piece of sexual revolutionary art history, created with the intactivist movement's best-known intact foreskin!
Iconic CAN-FAP 4"x4" Foreskin Painting: 1/$25, 4/$75, 8/$125 + postage
Iconic CAN-FAP Foreskin Paintings are available in three sizes — 4" x 4" canvas tiles, 8" x 8" gallery-wrapped canvas, and 12" x 12" gallery-wrapped canvas. (Canvas tiles have a depth of 1/8", wrapped canvases have a depth of 3/4".)
The 4" x 4" canvas tiles feature one or four foreskin impressions; the 8” x 8” and 12” x 12” canvases feature one, four or eight impressions. Three colors are used — black, white, and red — and you can specify the color of the background and the color(s) of the foreskin impressions. (After you donate we will contact you to confirm your selections.)
Iconic CAN-FAP Foreskin Paintings are superb pro-foreskin statements as stand-alone pieces, but they are four to eight times more compelling when displayed in groups of four or eight canvases. That's why we are making these foreskintacular pieces available in quantities of one, four or eight. And the deal keeps getting better! You get four paintings for the price of three, or eight paintings for the price of five! Starting at just $25 for one 4" x 4" painting! This such a ridiculous bargain, you may insist on over-paying!
Iconic CAN-FAP 12"x12" Foreskin Painting: 1/$100, 4/$300, 8/$500 + postage
For more sample foreskin paintings and instructions on how to choose the colors etc of your painting(s), visit the Foreskin Paintings page at the CAN-FAP website:
Iconic CAN-FAP Foreskin Prints
These are high-resolution, glossy photographic prints, primarily based on a series of pigment-on-foreskin-on-paper prints created by Glen Callender and his foreskin. Available prints also include exquisite photographs — by intactivist photographer extraordinaire James Loewen — of Glen's foreskin, foreskin art being created, and more.
The historic first limited edition of iconic CAN-FAP Foreskin Prints will be available exclusively to supporters of this indiegogo fund-raiser (the edition will be limited to the number of Foreskin Print perks claimed), and Glen will sign each print to confirm authenticity. Own an essential piece of sexual revolutionary art history, created with the intactivist movement's best-known intact foreskin!
How are the iconic Foreskin Prints different from the iconic Foreskin Paintings? The prints can render Glen’s foreskin in more detail than the paintings, because the pigment-on-foreskin-on-paper process captures more anatomical detail than the acrylic-on-foreskin-on-canvas process, and because the scanned images can be digitally enlarged and enhanced. But the prints are not unique art works like the paintings. Glen will sign each print, however, so they are still guaranteed to increase in value as the genital autonomy movement advances.
Iconic CAN-FAP Foreskin Prints are available in three sizes — 4" x 4", 8" x 8" and 12" x 12". They are superb pro-foreskin statements as stand-alone pieces, but they are four to eight times more compelling when displayed in groups of four or eight. That's why we are making these foreskintastic prints available in quantities of one, four or eight. And the deal keeps getting better! You get four prints for the price of three, or eight prints for the price of five! Starting at just $10 for one 4" x 4" print! This such a ridiculous bargain, you may insist on over-paying!
4" x 4" Foreskin Prints: 1/$10, 4/$30, 8/$50 + postage
8" x 8" Foreskin Prints: 1/$35, 4/$105, 8/$175 + postage
12" x 12" Foreskin Prints: 1/$60, 4/$175, 8/$300 + postage

Thank you so much for your support!
The Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project turns four in June, and thanks to the fantastic response we get wherever we go, my enthusiasm for this work has only grown. I am deeply honored that so many of you respect what I do enough to donate to CAN-FAP, wear CAN-FAP T-shirts, and even fly me to your cities and host me in your homes. CAN-FAP wouldn't be what it is today without the support of many, many people — you know who you are — and I thank you all, from the bottom of my heart and the tip of my foreskin, for making it possible for me to do the most important and rewarding work of my life. And I want to continue doing this work, until the job of protecting all people from forced genital mutilation is done.
I hope my dedication and performance over the past four years has earned your trust, and hope you will donate with confidence that I will deliver a fantastic bang for your hard-earned buck. With your support, I will take the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project to the next level in 2014. Please be a part of it, by supporting the CAN-FAP 2014 Foregasm Fundraiser! The revolution will not be circumcised!
