YoungGuy - Getting the Snip

Should I Go for It?

Some of my buddies are circumcised, and I’ve heard the ladies love it, though I don’t really know if that’s true or not. As for me, I love to please the ladies - so I am thinking of going for it!

The doctor says I'll have to wait six weeks before having sex. I didn’t tell him that I am not actually even having sex yet.

My buddy was circumcised when he was 15 years old. He says he likes that it is easier to keep clean and he feels more confident with the ladies now (although I suspect he doesn’t get as much action as he claims he does). There's also the added benefit of less worry over disease: the risk of getting HIV goes down when you are circumcised.

I want to do what’s best for me. So I think I’m going to go for it. It's a very simple procedure. But before I do, I need to make sure I haven't got any big sports events coming up because I'll need to take it easy for about a month.

Circumcision helps to reduce HIV transmission to guys. But do the maths: ‘Safer’ is not equal to ‘safe’. Always use a condom when you have sex, whether you're circumcised or not. Girls, remember that sex with a circumcised man will NOT reduce your chances of catching an STI or HIV. Take an HIV test with your potential lover. Carry a condom with you at all times. Better safe than sorry.
