Circumcision helps protect men, not women from AIDS

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

I have a better idea, how about keeping your pecker in your pants if you neglect to get yourself tested first before entering a relationship.  Pretty much a no brainer for those unclear on the concept of Aids.

WASHINGTON - Circumcision may help protect men from the AIDS virus but it does not protect the wives and female partners of infected men, researchers reported on Thursday.

The disappointed researchers had to stop the trial, which they had hoped would confirm early suggestions that circumcision would protect men and women alike.

But, they said, circumcision is so effective in protecting men that will still likely benefit women indirectly by reducing circulation of the virus in general.
