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!
