It "ain't heavy" anymore?

Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

Frankly, collierctr ... any writer who's written a sex scene involving a character probably knows whether he's circumcised, whether her drapes match her carpet (or in the case of certain girls, are smooth hardwood floors), how well endowed he is, whether she's petite or bodacious, if she has a gag reflex, whether he's a believer in oral reciprocity, she's a fan of spelunking, and a host of other characteristics someone writing orthodox Trek fiction never considers.

while any possible infections could be treated and cured, etc, why go through the hassle of constantly risking it and have to go repeatedly rather than prevent the infection in the first place?

some of the anatomical features can contain bacteria, etc....circumcision removes those features and a home for said bacteria. (that's the cleanest way to say that...PM me if more clarification is needed)
