So I'm a 20yr old guy, admittedly I don't used this site too much but I was wondering if anyone on here had more understanding or information on this subject than I did. I'm a 7.5 by 6 (yeah yeah I know I don't have pics sue me I'm not making it up) and I'm uncut. I've not been too upset every at people who think it's dirty, make jokes, etc. Usually it just doesn't come up, or I bite my tongue, because it seems in upstate ny where I live most guys are cut. Regardless, I'm not too worried about self image and have never gotten a complaint, perhaps I haven't gotten my share of Bjs, but honestly no real problems. My question relates to me browsing some recent studies from the American Urinary Journal (not sure on their title, but it's legit) with a study showing that being circumcised decreases the chance to pick up HIV by 60%. I had seen stuff like this before, but I remember digging deeper and finding that a lot the studies done in Africa were bogus, for example they were keeping the Circ'ed guys in housing away from women to make sure they healed and were given free condoms, etc. When the control was just left to have sex. What I had read seemed to make sense to me, if you use a condom, are clean, practice safe sex, you have a much lower chance to transmit/receive. But it didn't seem like circumcision did squat. Comments? This new study apparently has "proved" that there are cells that are covered/more prevalent in a foreskin that pick up HIV easier. I'm simplifying the science, and if I need to supply links I can. But they really were all for massive circumcision drives, and they seem to realize that the healing period is also an important part of that. But I'm really just wondering if this is real science, I mean arg, I don't want to put up with people going on and on about how uncut is just no good. It seems to me like environmental, socioeconomic and demographics play a much larger role in this. Does anyone know of a uncut/cut transmission study in the western world? Maybe I'm totally wrong, and honestly, if I am, too bad I'm staying uncut for personal preference. I just would like to know if anyone has any data/info to get an idea if there is any effect on HIV from being cut. Also, apologies if there are threads on this issue. I didn't see any recent ones. And yeah, I'm not really looking for a debate on how good/awesome/sensation filled being cut or uncut is, just what I was talking about above.
