I have been collecting links to studies supporting intactivism
here's what I have so farhttp://www.cirp.org/news/doctorsguid...tch2006-08-17/
Study of African countries in 2003-2005 shows HIV infection rates not necessarily lower in areas where circumcision is prevalent.
"HIV prevalence was markedly lower among circumcised than uncircumcised men only in Kenya (11.5% among uncircumcised men vs. 3.1% among circumcised men). A small protective effect of male circumcision was also seen in Burkina Faso (2.9% vs. 1.7%, respectively) and Uganda (5.5% vs. 3.7%).
In the other countries, there was either no difference in HIV rates between circumcised and uncircumcised men or circumcised men were more likely to be HIV-positive than uncircumcised men. For example, in Lesotho, HIV was seen in 23.4% of circumcised men compared to 15.4% of uncircumcised men.
"If anything, the correlation [between circumcision and HIV infection] goes the other way," in most of the countries studied, Dr. Mishra said during his presentation on August 15th."http://www.cirp.org/news/iht2007-03-06/
Procedure may put women at a higher risk of infection.
"Among 70 men with HIV who underwent circumcision, 11 of their female partners became infected with the virus in the month after the surgery. In contrast, only four partners of 54 uncircumcised men with HIV in the control group caught the virus — nearly half the rate, early results showed."http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0620085239.htm

"This study suggests that adult circumcision adversely affects sexual function in a significant number of men, and the authors suggest that it may be due to loss of nerve endings in the removed skin."
