Every once in a while I like to check out the statistics of my blog. I know how many people visit my site every month (about 4500 for November 2010). I also know how many come to my website by using a search engine (60%).

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. While checking out the site logs, I noticed that one visitor used Google to search for a "picture of thanksgiving turkey with a penis." Really? Read more . . .

One common side effect of routine infant circumcision is turkey neck or penoscrotal webbing. Turkey neck occurs when too much skin is removed during a circumcision and scrotal skin is pulled up to accommodate the enlarged penis during an erection.
With an infant, it is impossible to judge the size of his penis when the infant is an adult. So, typically, the doctor removes what he thinks is enough skin. If too much shaft skin is removed during circumcision, then when the adult has an erection, scrotal skin is pulled away from the body. This is typically more pronounced at the ventral side. The scrotal skin forms a web from the bottom of the scrotal sack to the circumcision scar for the most extreme case.
