The practice is known as oral suction, or in Hebrew, metzitzah b'peh: after removing the foreskin of the penis, the practitioner, or mohel, sucks the blood from the wound to clean it.

You are way out of line to question circumcision. It has nothing to do with Judaism. It is a procedure that insures hygiene. Non-circumcised men have a much higher rate of STD's and infection from uncleanliness as the foreskin traps all manner of bacteria, bodily fluids and germs. All you did was post a link to the NYT; a notorious anti-semitic rag of a newspaper. You should do your homework before showing your ignorance on a subject.

Yes the topic was, is a grown man sucking fresh blood off of an infant's penis, child molestation? If not why?
I am against circumcision myself (even though I am circumcised). I didn't circumcise my son. I didn't make that the subject because there are many threads on that here.
Also on those threads, there were a few posters who got circumcised as and adult (for medical reasons) and they said it was the worst pain they've ever experienced in their life, even days after.
Personally someone drinking another's blood gives me the heebie jeebies as it is. hehe
EDIT: as you can see from my link, blood drinking is still practiced. Not sure what vampirism is, can you explain.edit on 23-1-2011 by mayabong because: (no reason given)
