— Gabriel Malor A Zambian radio correspondent opted to get circumcised on the air to protect himself and raise awareness about AIDS prevention. Researchers last year concluded that circumcised men are less likely to get HIV from vaginal sex.
Gondwe, who says he undergoes an AIDS test several times a year, said in an interview Friday he finds it "sad" that more people don't talk about circumcision as a prevention method.
"We as journalists also have a role to play in the fight against the disease," he said.
Gondwe, on the radio piece and in an online diary Friday, recounts his Nov. 22 procedure. Listeners can hear him gasp as a doctor injects him with a local anesthetic, but he assures them the procedure is otherwise painless. He was up, walking to his car and driving himself home soon afterward.

Knowing that the person you're having relations with hasn't already had relations with everyone else in the village will fight AIDS too.

Sure. But the microphones won't be around the first time he gets a boner and has the sutures rip out, will they?

Wait until the Novacaine wears off.
Just the mere thought of sharp metal objects near that portion of my anatomy produces a major pucker factor.

Hey! Everybody knows that the only way you can cure yourself of hiv/aids is to rape an infant girl.

Circumcision is a Republican problem and Republican phenomenon.

mouth is, so to speak, to fight AIDS? And just what would they have to
cut off to help fight stupidity?
Well, I imagine they'd start at his scalp and work their way down to his neck.
