Dicky-leaks: what Aussie men have down under. New to the Helmet or Hoodie site, a survey of tens of thousands of Australian men by year of birth, from 1945 to 1998. The source of the information was a dating site which asked the question. They point out that the question was optional, and also that not all of the men would have been born in Australia. Circumcision rate was 71% for men born in 1945, and fell progressively from then. 1981 was the 50/50 year, and for men born in 1998 it was 27%. (Presumably under-18s are not allowed on the site, but I am surprised to see that 72-year-olds use dating sites!) NEW
