They were circumcised using the direct oral suction technique practiced by some Orthodox Jews

Say what you want about circumcision, but this method is just farking gross. Do they use "traditional" stone tools as well?

And yet Catholic priests get in trouble for practically the same thing on older children. It's not fair!

Remember newborns, before letting some creepy old dude in a dress suck you off, know where he's been. I can't stress that enough.

Oh good our regular forum for the insecure, uncircumcised among us to argue in favor of their gross, smegma-covered, disease-spreading wieners.

Yes, but at least they will get herpes with a hooker, the way God intended.

No mention on if the same Rabbi was involved in all the cases. If so, why is he allowed to continue with this practice?

Circumcised penises look normal, and feel better when inside a woman. They also don't have the "fermented" taste that uncircumcised penises do, which happens to all uncircumcised penises whether they're cleaned regularly or not. I'm a dude, and I'm not gay, so I don't know this for sure. I'm just repeating what my mom told me.

"Hi, welcome to the world, my son. This is the kind of place where we cut off the top of your dick."

I couldn't do it. I was surprised at the people who were surprised that I didn't want my son to "match" my husband. I think even those Christmas card photos where the whole family is wearing red sweaters are creepy. What are they planning to do with "matching" father/son dongs?

Not eating pork and shellfish thousands of years ago I can kind of understand because there are health risks that aren't apparent until after the fact and you're shiatting your brains out if you prepare them incorrectly. Sucking the gaping dick wound of a newborn with your mouth I don't think I'll ever understand. This was cleaner than what, exactly? Rubbing sand in it and binding it up with fresh intestine?

Jesus, quit letting old bearded syphilitic herpalitic  assholes suck your babies dicks.  WTF is wrong with you people?   When my daughters were born, the Dr. didn't stand up, and say " in celebration of this girls life, i will now go down on her, and bless her with the gift of my holy tongue".  I mean, it's bad enough that you are religious extremists,  but now your kids have herpies.  This makes about as much sense to me as African female genital mutilation.   Climb out of the farking dark ages and join the rest of the civilized world.  God...nothing that makes sense comes out of organized religion.

Your mom is wrong about everything.
 Women dont know the difference when its inside them. It doesnt feel better or worse to them, it feels the same. Obviously it feels different for oral, but just like every vagina is different so is every penis. Women dont care about stuff like that if they are into you. And if they are not into you then why are they seeing your penis?

Any penis will taste bad if it is not kept cleaned. Cut or not.
You are gay.

Uh, that's bullshiat. Try farking soap. I am a 'dude' too. But I know enough to make sure I am clean at all times.

Also, try washing before asking for, or being the recipient of, any form of sex. FFS, is that too hard to remember?

FTFA:  There have been 16 confirmed cases of herpes since 2000 in newborn boys after circumcisions that likely involved direct oral suction, including three in 2014, according to the Health Department.

Two of the infants died and at least two others suffered brain damage.



You just had to mutilate your babies because Jesus, didn't you???

Farking Heathens!

The idiots who practice and allow infant corksoaking are violating halacha by putting a child's life in danger. This particular practice is not standard, ordinary, or required, and is followed only by fringe fundamentalists. New York should prosecute them.

If you missed the thread last week, however, there was a guy who was going in for a circumcision as an adult, due to infections, and they had to amputate his entire dick. So, maybe it's better to be done as a preventative measure early on.

Yeah, good luck with that. NY prosecutors will run for the corners so fast you will wonder if they have been training with Usain Bolt.
