Circumcision by Mouth
Gross. On cnn.com today, there was an article about 3 New York babies that got herpes from their Mohel when he used his mouth to suck the resulting blood from their penises. Apparently, according to cnn and WebMD this is a recognized but rare practice among Orthodox Jews, although not religiously mandated. How positively nasty would it be to watch some man put his mouth on your infant son's penis? Can you say, "Michael Jackson"?
