I guess I must have missed most of this thread, but when Mervyn
Meggitt was lecturing in the 60's at the University of Michigan,
he stated quite clearly that subincision does not involve cutting
the urethra.

The thing of it is, they were still doing it when he did his
field work, because all of the ladies asked his wife how she
could possibly have any fun having sexual intercourse with a guy
who *didn't* have his penis subincised.
