Circumcised men have less HIV risk

Hooray for circumcision! A study suggests that circumcision may stop millions of HIV deaths worldwide. From Reuters:
They analyzed data from trials that showed men who had been circumcised had a significantly lower risk of infection with the AIDS virus, and calculated that if all men were circumcised over the next 10 years, some two million new infections and around 300,000 deaths could be avoided.

Researchers believe circumcision helps cut infection risk because the foreskin is covered in cells the virus seems able to easily infect. The virus may also survive better in a warm, wet environment like that found beneath a foreskin.

So if men were circumcised, fewer would become infected and thus could not infect their female partners.
Thank god I did mine eons ago.

Less HIV risk only if they were already circumcised when they had their first sex.

If you don't want to catch HIV, don't sleep around, period. Making people believe they are more 'HIV-proof' by chopping it off may lead to even more dangerous behavior in my opinion.
