Ritualistic genital modification?

(For the sake of discussion please do not condone or overly criticize any of the following topics, I simply would like to learn)

I haven't seen much information on this subject, however during my studies on various religions and ceremonial practices I have come to notice a rather strange throughline when it comes to the topic of physical body rituals in many religions practices. I generally understand the spiritual significance behind sex and genitalia in many cultures, but I still don't understand the obsession with the modification of the genitals that most cultures have/had.

The first example which comes to mind is circumcision (both male and female). Circumcision was developed independently on almost every single continent save Europe (The caveat being that circumcision was most likely introduced to the middle east through the Egyptians who at the time of the practices introduction to the area were of European stock, and practiced both male and female circumcision until gradually phasing out female circumcision, implying that the practice originated in europe) however as well all know this practice has been almost completely stripped of its spiritual purposes over the last few decades. Castration has also served a historically important role in many cultural and religious practices also being independently developed and practiced in every corner of the globe. Depending on the culture the testes themselves would be the offering or becoming a eunuch would allow an individual to enter into a specific area of religious or religiously affiliated work.

Piercings and tattoos are also common but they dont seem to have as much significance as the partial or complete removal (or extreme modification) of the genitalia.

Do these practices have any weight or are they mostly based on outdated sexual superstitions?

    I can't really answer your question because I think it's a very complex one but I just really like the Skoptsy sect from Russia and felt the need to mention them
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skoptsy

    Anyway these rituals all seem to fall into 1 or both of the following categories:
    >initiation into adulthood and into the state of being a fully fledged member of the tribe
    >creating a state of spiritual perfection without the distraction of sexual desire

      One of my "favourite" heretic sects, along with the Donatists and the Flagellants.

      Do they cover anything relating to female circumcision by chance? The idea of male circumcision sort of makes sense however what is almost completely left out of most sources is that most circumcising cultures practiced both until either dropping the practice completely or exclusively preforming male circumcision, something we see in the modern day which seems to be for an organized purpose...

        I bring this up specifically because the male genitalia is almost always exalted above the female genitalia in many ancient cultures and when female sexual characteristics are revered they are primarily referenced in regards to the hips/legs and breasts.

        Nothing I'm aware of for now

        As for the rest of your post
        I think it's related to rises and falls or masculinity and femininity-based cults/mindsets of societies
        Historically we got predominance of masculine cults (e.g. Abrahamic religions, male-centric Logos and science, Buddhism) AND some societal developments ("tradition-loving" bitter doomers can be skeptical however they want but rituals of damaging genitals was an insane dead-end maladaptation much like cannibalism and necrophilia rituals and whatnot), so here we go with that distribution

        I think the reasons are:
        1. What you can read in King, Warrior, Magician, Lover book's preface on warped patriarchy
        2. Generational trauma habit, basically "if I suffered for nothing, why the ones who will live after me shouldn't suffer like that too?"
