SD man's lawsuit says circumcision 'robbed' him

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) A South Dakota prison inmate is suing the hospital where he was circumcised as a newborn, saying he only recently became aware that he'd undergone the procedure and that it robbed him of his sexual prowess.

Dean Cochrun, 28, is asking for $1,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. He also asks in the lawsuit that his foreskin be restored "in the hopes I could feel whole again," though he acknowledged that he didn't expect such a restoration to be anything more than aesthetic.

Cochrun, who is imprisoned in Sioux Falls on a kidnapping conviction, filed the federal lawsuit Friday against Sanford Hospital. Cochrun claims that an "unknown doctor" at the then-named Sioux Valley Hospital misled his mother to believe that the procedure was medically necessary. Cochrun argues that the procedure was unnecessary, unethical and without medical benefit.

"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 argued in the lawsuit, adding that neither he nor his partners would "have that sensitivity during sexual intercourse and have a normal sex life."

Cochrun isn't represented by a lawyer in the lawsuit, which includes a letter from Sanford officials responding to a letter requesting that his foreskin be replaced. Patient relations representative DyAnn Smith replied that Sanford would not pay for the procedure.

"There will be no further correspondence about this matter," she wrote.

"only recently become aware that he was circumcised.."
He's 28 years old and he's just realizing that???
Must not be one of those that's in "touch" with their body.

His sense of security and well being was in his foreskin? Sounds like they are trying to suggest it was like he was raped psychologically. And he even says he cannot have a normal sex life because of this.

If this case sets precedent it will open the door for lawsuits by those who have been tortured and mutilated in rendition settings, where they are abused with electric current and even knife slit wounds on them, they lhave decreased sensation and functioning also.

I think I'm gonna sue also because I think the doc chopped half mine off. That leaves at least two being "robbed".
