Anatomically, physiologically and histologically, the following
are the analogs:


Ovary Teste
Oviduct (Fallopian tube) Vas deferens
Uterus Unamed forward facing sack
found in the urethra
Vagina Urethra
Clitoris Penis
Hymen Foreskin

An hypothesis requires some concrete evidence before it can be made.
Your proposal doesn't even qualify as an hypothesis, let alone a theory
(an hypothesis that has been proven, but not proven for all cases).
Let's face it, you are trying to understand the reason why some cultures
endorse circumscision and others don't, but you can NOT state even a guess
scientifically without some concrete materials...otherwise I could simply
say that fluctuations in the ocean's tidal levels are caused by a smaller
satellite revolving around the Moon. Anyone know about this satellite?
