Circumcision Partially Recommended

Body modification has become very popular, and part of the attraction for some people is the experience of being modified as much as the modification itself.1 For some people, this includes the pain and discomfort associated with the modification. It is not surprising that the genitals should be a focus for such modifications in both men and women.2 Most of these modifications are minor and reversible, but circumcision is the permanent removal of healthy tissue. Should you decide for circumcision, it should be performed only by a physician experienced in this surgery.
