A man uncircumcised can harbor the virus under the foreskin. If a mother choses not to circumsize she's told by the doctor when bathing the child to pull the skin back & clean the penis & skin.
Look at it this way. A circumcized penis is exposed but once clean through urine or soap it's clean. But the virus can thrive
in the moist, warm underskin of the foreskin & eventually can find it's way into the urethea.
IN SOME COUNTRIES IN AFRICA where AIDS
, the WHO (World Health Organization) is now, after many medical studies, are urging MEN to get circumcised to help slow down the spread of the AIDS virus! Really! I couldn't believe what I was hearing! It was on the evening news out of France. According to new medical studies, If an uncircumcised man has sex with an infected partner and doesn't use a condom, the virus can live much longer under the foreskin because it is warm, moist, and more consistant temperature. If the guy is circumcised, then the virus dies off much more quickly because it doesn't have that warm moisture, therefore has less chance of getting into a bloodvessel on or under the glands.
A note for swabbie. The mesh holes in a condom are 10x the size of the aids virus. Condoms only reduce the risk. So you're still talking risky business.
