LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Uncircumcised men are eight times as likely to become infected with HIV (news - web sites) than circumcised men, according to a study of nearly 2,300 men in India released on Thursday.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has said it no longer recommends routine circumcision because -- despite some medical benefit -- there can be complications.


Johns Hopkins also studied the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases among circumcised and uncircumcised men. Although the incidence of diseases like syphilis, gonorrhea and genital herpes was slightly higher among uncircumcised men, the difference was not statistically significant.

You know what, I'll take my chances with HIV.

btw, do circumsized men even feel anything down there?

Well, I couldn't walk with it retracted, it's too sensitive, so I am guessing if people can walk without it, they aren't as sensitive.

Thats okay I think I'll counter my 8 times the risk by using condoms and not sleeping with prostitutes or gays.

Nope. Circumsized men can't orgasm.

Just saying it does affect sensation, so that link is bull.
Now whether you preffer to have or not have that full sensation, it doesn't matter because it's already been decided for you ;)

That is all BS just say if you set on another mans lap and keep your pants on it will greatly reduce HIV,
