    $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program

    (CNSNews.com) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.
    The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.
    “NIH Announces the Availability of Recovery Act Funds for Competitive Revision Applications,” the grant abstract states. “We propose to evaluate the feasibility of a post-coital genital hygiene study among men unwilling to be circumcised in Orange Farm, South Africa.”
    Because AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision, the UCLA study proposes to determine whether researchers can develop an after-sex genitalia-washing regimen that they can then convince uncircumcised African men to follow.
    “The aim of the proposed feasibility study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a post-coital male genital hygiene procedure, which participants will be asked to practice immediately post-coitus or at least 12 hours after,” reads the abstract.
    Entitled “Community-Based HIV VCT: South Africa,” the name of the broader umbrella project, the program plans to test how well received the penis-washing regimen is among South African men.
    If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the “penile cleansing procedure” actually works to prevent HIV infections.
    “If we find that men are able to practice consistent washing practices after sex, we will plan to test whether this might protect men from becoming HIV infected in a later study,” the grant says.
    The study’s lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents.
    CNSNews.com asked both Coates and NIMH the following question: “The Census Bureau says the median household income in the United States is $52,000. How would you explain to the average American mom and dad -- who make $52,000 per year -- that taxing them to pay for this grant was justified?”
    Coates, who was unavailable for comment, directed CNSNews.com to ask grant-related questions of his assistant, Darya Freedman, who did not respond.
    The NIMH also declined to respond to CNSNews.com’s question.

    Apparently this project was so successful that next year a mere $3,452,000 will allow them to teach Africans how to brush their teeth.

    teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.
    dont they just wipe it with the curtains like anybody else.


    at least 12 hours after,” reads the abstract.
    jesus, in that heat too, the humid steamy fug that must be fermenting in the murky unplumbed depths of an africans underpants, 12 hours after sex, fish sauce and ripe camenbeart doesnt even come close.

    why not just circumcise 'em, makes life a lot easier and cleaner

    It could be worse, they could have spent the money on a drone to kill civilian Pakistanies or something.

    You'll have to put an advertisement on here DD,

    Sure there would be a few volunteers on TD who could do it a lot cheaper. you could ask them how they would like to be paid,

    Do you want to be paid by the hour, by the penis, or by the stroke?

    What's wrong with it? Researching preventative healthcare is a good idea.

    For $800,000 they could have flown a film crew to Thailand, employed Eddie Murphy as the star, plus half a dozen Thai girls showing how to clean your cock, pretty sure that would get more views than whatever they did.

    Surely the burning question is: How come they don't know how to wash their cocks?
    The oldest human remains ever found were in Africa, so they have been around for a while. I don't remember when I learned to wash mine, but I think it was somewhere around 4 to 6 years of age. Not fast learners are they?

    It's work on preventing HIV by - judging from the link in the first post - someone with a decent track record and it's costing less than a quarter of a cent per person. That seems like a fair deal. Americans like to congratulate themselves on their generosity so here's a chance to be generous by dropping a quarter of a cent in the tin.

    For the same amount of money, you could, of course, pay for one American soldier to stay in Afghanistan for slightly less than a year. For that, you'll achieve almost nothing beyond ensuring that a good number more people hate America, some of whom will wish to use violence against you.

    If you want to complain about what your government does with the nation's money - and if I were American, I certainly would - this is utterly inconsequential. The wars, and the massive transfer of wealth from public to private hands (which both parties have overseen in the past few years) are what I would complain about, not ridiculous stories like this, quite obviously put about by the right-wing press to distract you from the real crimes.

    Incredible waste of money. Anyone who is too stupid to know you should wash your willie after exploring unfamiliar territory needs to be eliminated from the gene pool.

    In that case you should be protesting $800k is not enough and that by withdrawing completely from Afghanistan they could teach the whole of Africa how to wash their cocks, with money over to address manky twats too.

    Can someone post a video of using a bum-washer? I never quite worked it out on my trips to LOS, as yet.

    Good point, but do we know for sure that monkeys don't wash their cocks? Maybe Baboons....they groom each other. Do a nice job too.
