dear doc,could u please clarify me that circumstanized penis has less chans of contracting hiv/std disease as compared to non.circumstanzied penis,,i have read in one of ur website,,,is that true

Response from Dr. Frascino

Well, I'm not sure about "circumstanized" penises, but men with circumcised penises in several epidemiological studies did have a decreased incidence of HIV and other STDs. Now, don't go doing anything drastic based on this information. Removing one's foreskin has not been included in the safer sex guidelines! Just remember to use a condom every time, foreskin or no foreskin!
