"International experts have backed the use of male circumcision in the prevention of HIV." That's the headline boys. Let's look at this from a few different perspectives. The news is good for a variety of reasons: 1) In the Serious Department, three trials in Africa showed that circumcision halved the rate of HIV infection in heterosexual men (well, let's just say in men, shall we?) 2) Studies have also shown that if circumcision was more widely available, millions of lives, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, would be saved. 3) What all of this proves is what I have suspected for some time: being cut is good. Being uncut is bad. It looks strange. It smells. It gets in the way. So cast off your hoods boys, secure in the knowledge that you're helping humanity - and whoever you're sleeping with!
