That one study, confined to Christians in Kenya, compared men belonging to churches that encouraged circumcision with those that discouraged it.

The circumcised men were more likely to be married and to have more than one wife, less likely to have ever been with a sex worker, or with more than three sex workers.

(Equal proportions of both groups, 10-11%, had been with one or two sex workers.) These factors could well account for the difference. The authors maintain that "because participants did not know their HIV-1 status at the time of our visit, bias from this source would seem unlikely." But many would know their HIV-1 status because of AIDS symptoms. There are thus unknown ways in which men might non-randomly "include themselves out".

Only seven of the 53 HIV infections occurred among insertive partners; the studys model indicated that five of these infections could have been avoided if the men had been circumcised.

[No figure for how many of the seven HIV infections were among circumcised insertive men.

So circumcising insertive men could readily increase HIV transmission to their partners.

Yet already this study is being touted as a reason for gay men to get circumcised.] Studies that claim to find a correlation between intactness and HIV transmission are not uncommonly misreported in a way that plays up the "protective effect".But we cannot, lest we lose the very respect that tempted us in the first place." - Stephen Jay Gould Bully for Brontosaurus, pp 429-30 (But some, it seems, are willing to take that risk.)
