This is a noble idea because the pandemic is decimating our population.

But the mind boggles at the thought of the nightly conversations that will take place all over the country.

Studies have shown that women have little control over sexual matters in our patriarchal society. How does a woman tell the king to snip it when a lesser conversation around condomising can break up a relationship ?

Men have written poems dedicated to their manhood and it is doubtful that they will agree to undergo the cut on the advice of their women.

Perhaps in future men will have to show their prospective love interest a certificate proving they have been "done".
