Zambia: "Male circumcision can reduce HIV risk for women by 30 percent"

Article here. Excerpt:

'Ground-breaking research presented at the recent International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2017) in Paris, suggested that voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) could lower HIV risk for women by as much as 30 percent.

It is already well-known that women whose male partners are circumcised can benefit from a reduced risk of genital ulcers, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as herpes and syphilis, bacterial vaginosis and T vaginalis, but until now, there has been little evidence of its protective benefits against HIV for women.

Rachael Rawlinson, COO for CareWorks, an HIV management organisation, described the research as a break-through discovery.'

Even if it were true...

... the same could be said for FGM and how it'd reduce the spread of STIs from women to men.

These articles are written like STIs only go from men to women.

Once sex-droids are brought into high enough quality, women won't have to worry about men "pestering" them for sex. And droids don't want to see you get parts of your dick cut off, too.
