What do you think about this article? Opinions Needed!

I'm really not sure what to think I need other POV's to make up my mind. Yes I have a knee jerk first reaction but then upon further reading it's like well maybe? Oh IDK it sounds so wrong but maybe it's not??


The story has all the makings of a gynecological horror flick: "Cornell Surgeon Used Vibrator To Stimulate 6-Year-Olds," gasped the headline

Is it true? Is there some rogue doctor surgically slicing the clitorises of little girls and then testing them with vibrators? Not exactly. The scandal concerns a medical paper Poppas and two colleagues wrote three years ago in the Journal of Urology describing a method Poppas was using to test clitoral sensitivity after surgery.

The patients in question are girls with a condition known as CAH, or congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which affects about one in 5,000 girls.

  • I think it's creepy. If the surgery had to be done, why couldn't he wait until they were of legal age to test the sensitivity. It says right in the article that six year old could feel the q-tip on their thighs more because of the way they're more prone to tickling. Why couldn't he use a q-tip if he had to test? Why didn't he seek approval for his experiments??? I think this guy is all kinds of messed up just hiding behind a doctorate.

  • =( Do I really have to repost this with the "shocking" headline to get replies?
