Scared of the knife

Dear Aunty Lisa

I am a young man aged 18 and I have heard all about circumcision and stuff. I am nervous to go through the process.

Practically it is like going through an operation and anything that involves a knife scares the hell out of me.

What benefits does it have on me really? What if there are side effects? Should I go? – T-Man

Dear T-Man

Circumcision is a personal decision one has to make. Me being a woman I cannot really talk from experience. All I know about the process is that it has been scientifically proven to reduce one’s chances of contracting sexually transmitted diseases..

Basically they say it is a cleaner and healthier way of living. There are no known side-effects from the process. It is painful for adults but it heals quickly. I suggest you get advice from other men who have been circumcised. Find out what difference it has made in their lives and talk to those who have not been circumcised and get them to explain if they encounter challenges that they think circumcision may eradicate. – Aunty Lisa
