Warning! Don’t watch this video at work. Or near your chil’ens. Or if you get queasy at the thought of gratuitous phallic imagery, nudity, or “colorful” (i.e. “sounds like Cate”) language.
That disclaimer aside, I’ve come to understand what a heady topic circumcision can be! (No, I couldn’t resist the pun! And yes, I have been reading too much Cake Wrecks.)
After I wrote my initial blog exploring reasons to leave boys intact, there was a lot of “discussion” on the topic. People sure are passionate about foreskins!
1 million times a year, 3,000 times a day, every 26 seconds, an American boy has the tip of his penis cut off.
Sometimes, it’s better to just let the professionals do the talking. No, I don’t mean all of those doctors I consulted before I decided to leave my sons intact.
I’m talking, of course, about Penn and Teller, who explored circumcision on one of their “BS!” series episodes.
How about finishing up this serious topic with some humor?
Watch the video, if you don’t mind a bit of nudity, clips of performed circumcisions, a pic of FGM (female genital mutilation), penis jokes, info on foreskin “recycling”, a Ron Jeremy cameo, and dose of cuss words.
Penn & Teller take the time to debunk the myths associated with this practice. I value this video because of that. I didn’t base any of my arguments on this video, but I appreciate having found a good chuckle. Before you watch, however, don’t say I haven’t warned you!
But…blasted! The internet embedding trolls have foiled me again. Go to Google Video to check it out:
