"We also found no protective benefit for a subset of black MSM (men who have sex with men) who also had recent sex with female partners," Millett told reporters in a telephone briefing.</td>

FINALLY!<br><br>
The mainstream media finally picked up on this and told it straight-forward. Circ does nothing to prevent HIV, well at least in America. Although it is pretty illogical to think that just because you're African circumcision is an effective HIV preventative.<br><br>
Even though this article states some misinformation, trying to paint the foreskin as dangerous, this is a valuable tool to use with those who argue circumcision prevents HIV.

Aside for the misleading info on Langerhans cells, the article was what people need to hear, so I rated it 5 stars hoping it'll stay up in the headlines on Yahoo for a while.

I'm glad it's getting press but come on, African foreskins are somehow uniquely different than American ones? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

The reality sadly is that African foreskins are more likely to be taken without much of a fight. Africans are being bullied and misinformed by very powerful lobbies with millions of dollars backing them. The people are for the most part uneducated and have little to no access to opposing information. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> So in come the circumcisionists like vultures picking on the sick and young.

I've been trying to figure that out all day! I wonder what the study's explanation is for that... and furthermore, where/how I can get a copy of the study for myself.

I'm not familiar with the study, but could the practice of dry sex have something to do with it? I'm not going to google dry sex, either!

Are you saying the Americans are having more dry sex? Just asking for clarity. Never mind I looked on Wiki and it is practiced in Africa.
