Baby gets herpes from bizarre Jewish penis sucking ritual

Metzitzah b'peh

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has sent out an alert to medical providers warning them that another baby now has Herpes Simplex Virus 1 that was transmitted to the baby through metzitzah b’peh, the direct mouth-to-bleeding-penis sucking done briefly by haredi mohels after cutting off the foreskin.

For whatever reason, this dangerous tradition is still legal.

Between 2004 and 2011, the city learned of 11 herpes infections it said were most likely caused by the practice. Two of those babies died; at least two others suffered brain damage.

One rabbi, A. Rami Cohn, said that he’s sucked 25 000 babies in this disgusting ritual and that he’d rather go to jail than stop doing it: Kuksugande rabbin har sugit 25000 barnpenisar (Swedish).
