So i've been reading The Manga Sutra, and there's a bit where one of the male characters gets a circumcision. Apparently, people are surprised he hadn't already; one could draw from this that circumcision is The Thing To Do in Japan. And apparently, it's so The Thing To Do that the book didn't supply any statistics on the procedure, like it does on damn near everything else that goes on in the book. So i gotta ask, just how prevelant is circumcision in Japan? What do they figure it does? For those men who haven't been circumcised, why not?
And what's this "phimosis" that's so prevelant in the book? Is it painful or deadly or what? Does just about every uncircumcised male really have it? Do *i* have it??
Hell, i don't even know what a circumcised penis looks like, and Katsu Aki didn't do me any favors by not drawing any.
