Dear God, It’s Me Cocoa
Do you ever wake up and feel filled with emotions? I’m speaking of that odd feeling that is now treated with Zoloft or Xanax, but is really a natural part of life where you are forced to reflect. Introspection is underrated. Recently, I’ve taken stock of what’s important and it turns out, there isn’t much that is. Work – important to sustain yourself, but as someone mentioned to me not long ago – you never see anyone on their death bed wishing they’d spent more time at the office. Family – sure you love them and are there for them – yet you get the strange feeling that ultimately we become part of our individual “silo” or immediate pod and have less time for the general family unit. Friends – you think they know you – so why do they still have issues with parts of your personality that have existed since you met them twenty years ago? More importantly, why do you continue the interaction when it appears you don’t really like each other? So this morning, I closed my eyes on the train and mentally said a quick prayer – well, he can read my mind can’t He? Dear God, it’s me…I know it’s raining on the outside this morning, but please walk with me today and open your enormous umbrella to stop the raining on my inside. Sure, I still feel a light drizzle, but I have a feeling that the old saying is true – without the rain, there couldn’t be any flowers.
This afternoon, will be our first official On Blast segment. As a preview, we are using one of our questions from yesterday’s Afternoon Edition. Please note that future questions for our On Blast segment will be taken from the Comments section of our Morning Edition and answered in the Afternoon Edition.
This morning we’re putting Freaking Rican On Blast … What is your take on the uncircumcised?
The issue of the parka-penis has been around since the beginning of time. There is no medical justification for circumcision and the practice was initially devised as a religious ritual. That said, circumcision has its benefits. First, it is much easier for a circumcised man to keep his member clean, since there is no sheath to hold bacteria, sweat or odor. This is not to say that an uncircumcised man is unclean, but he must maintain stricter grooming and hygiene standards if he wishes to remain tidy and odorless. I equate the uncut member to a vagina – it needs daily attention to keep it in order. Are there benefits to an uncut penis? Yes and no. Yes, since the uncut penis is much more sensitive once the skin is pulled back to expose the head. This means that uncircumcised men experience greater “head” sensations. Cut (circumcised) men have had the head of their penis dry and the skin harden in the years following their circumcision. Warnings: Uncut men should ALWAYS make certain that they have thoroughly washed their penis prior to any sexual interaction. No one wants a funky, vagina-smelling member near their face. Uncut men should note that unprotected interactions are even more dangerous, since the foreskin can hold and harbor bacteria. Uncut men should take time to allow folks to adjust to their member. Many folks – especially American folks – are not accustomed to seeing an uncut penis. Finally, when the skin is pulled back to reveal the “mushroom” head, all penises are the same. An uncut adult should be able to fully pull back their foreskin to clean their member daily. If he cannot, he should seek medical attention. Never engage in oral sex with an uncut man without first exposing his entire penis. Pay close attention to your other senses – ie. smell. If there is any cheesy (white) residue or fishy aroma to an uncut penis, stay clear and do not engage it. Well, Freaking Rican, I hope this helps.
