"The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex."

This is probably why so many of them think that that's how you prevent AIDS.

But would you consider that enough, especially faced with the high AIDS risk in the continent? A lot of African men and women don't bother with much more- The president of South Africa sure doesn't.

I won't argue that good hygiene isn't important, but is it really necessary to spend that much money -that much of another nation's money- on it?

Condoms are handed out for free throughout South Africa. It's not a case of "if they could afford them, they'd use them", they're there and they're available for free. They just don't want to use them.

And according to this article, it sounds as though a lot of the men need convincing to continue washing properly after the study ends and that doesn't even suprise me. In my opinion, it's a complete waste of money.

Well, I mean it's not even that much money to one individual tax-payer, considering how many of you guys pay tax, I'm just saying I think that the money could be used better... maybe as part of a program that includes penile hygiene- but to spend that much on this one thing seems silly to me.

You obviously have more knowledge of taxes (as I've grown up in a 'tax-free' country) and of the Unites States, so if you think it'll benefit the country I'm not one to argue.

I still think the money could be put to better use, I genuinely hope this program affects South Africa on a large and positive scale, but I doubt it will.

I apologize for the vulgarity of my swinger friend. He is a very great dude and an amazing scientist. I urge you to delay negative judgement.

I don't mind vulgarity... I had just pretty much forgotten about this whole thing and was surprised to see an update in my inbox.

you mean you don't rape a virgin to wash the AIDS off?

Recipient from this Stimulus

I am a recipient of this stimulus and I assure you that you should not knock it before you try it. Beforehand I was uncertain about this specific area and simply left it to determine its own future.

After receiving this stimulus I am now now able to wash my uncircumcised penis within 1 flat minute.
