By Nick Fouriezos. Look out your window on Sunday. Innuendo will be par for the course, sexuality celebrated in some not-so-safe-for-work ways. Yep, the foreskin will stand erect this pride month.
And…Cut! A double circumcision story

The Anti-Circumcision Crowd Takes a Queer Turn
Circumcision has received increased attention for its potential to reduce sexual transmission of HIV. Few participants reported they were circumcised, yet most participants reported knowing something about the procedure. Overall, attitudes towards circumcision were mixed: although circumcision was viewed as safe, it was also viewed as unnatural and cruel to babies. Beliefs that circumcision could improve sexual functioning and protect against STIs and HIV were not widely endorsed by survey participants, although focus group participants discussed the potential impacts of circumcision on the availability of sexual partners and sexual performance. Some focus group participants and many survey participants reported a hypothetical willingness to get circumcised if strong evidence of its effectiveness could be provided, barriers removed, and recovery time minimised.
I'm not quite sure how the topic of circumcision came up when I met Aaron Calloway through a mutual friend recently, but it wasn't one my new acquaintance shied away from. From my perspective, there could be no such thing as TMI about one's decision to get circumcised as an adult male. None whatsoever.
