Medical experts say the procedure can prevent STD transmission, but many families still oppose it.To snip or not to snip? That is the question in regards to circumcision.Read More »from Should You Circumcise Your Infant Son?
For some, especially those who practice Judaism, it's a religious ritual. For others, it's a preference. For those who choose to make the cut, however, there may be substantial health benefits.
As per a recent New York Times article, the American Academy for Pediatrics recently released new information regarding the controversial topic of circumcision. Prominent experts say that the benefits outweigh the risks of the procedure, as male infant circumcision can prevent urinary tract infections in the first year of life and prevent the acquisition and transmission of STDs, including HIV, as an adult, as recently shown in a study in Africa.

Although it was a club where the performance was less of a focus and more of a backdrop, this particular place was known for some of the antics of their burlesque-type performers. I had heard that some of it was shocking, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when one of the dancers straddled herself over a champagne bottle, lowered herself onto it, then rolled backward to show the audience that all we could see was the bottom of it - the rest of the glass bottle was inside her.
