The earliest records for intentional physical castration are from the Sumerian city of Lagash in the 21 st century BC. Less extreme forms of physical castration in the case of men involved cutting away just the scrotum while leaving the penis attached. Today physical castration is still being performed in some societies around the world, although it mostly involves partial castration. For example, there are still countries and cultures where the penises of boys are being circumcised or split open in ritualistic sub-incision. In the case of women, their clitorises are being cut away and labia are sewn together. Chemical castration also became a possibility, where the genitals are deactivated using pharmaceutical drugs.
