Welcome to Intact Australia!

Here, you will find a collective and comprehensive overview of all intact related materials available to the public.

We are a not for profit organisation with a goal of spreading awareness to the communities within Australia; to bring an end to the genital cutting of minors and to ensure genital autonomy for all.

Intact Australia serves to unify advocates for genital autonomy coming from a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, groups and current locations in life.

Our Goal

We believe that all human beings, regardless of age, sex, gender, ethnicity, size, background, family, or ability to defend themselves, come into this world with the basic human right to genital autonomy. That is: to make personal decisions about what happens to our genitals in absence of medical necessity.

In short our goals are:

  • To raise awareness that all sexes have equal rights to their own bodies.
  • For Routine Infant Circumcision (RIC) to be illegal without a true medical need.

NO medical organisation in the world recommends Routine Infant Circumcision (RIC).

111 circumcisions would be required to prevent 1 UTI because of the low base line risks of UTI, and only boys at high risk of recurrent UTI would benfefit from newborn circumcision.
