[[GroinAttack ritual circumcision among African tribes...]] [[TattooedCrook back-alley tattoo parlors in inner-city America...]] [[{{Transsexual}} transsexual prostitutes]] in UsefulNotes/{{Bangkok}}... all the stuff they won't show on the Discovery Channel but which can be defended by crying, "But it's really happening".
