I've considered it, but I have not heard any really positive testimonials about how people feel after eliminating the ropes. So, I'm not entirely sure that it is a good thing. It seems to be more of a "ewww...that came outta me???" type thing. :)
It reminds me of the old days when douching was a big thing for women - lots of women did it because they felt "cleaner" but in fact it was very detrimental to their health.
I guess I'd simply like to know more about exactly what the ropes are and hear from at least one person who has done them who feels that passing the ropes has had a specific positive effect on his or her health. Maybe that will be you.....? ;)
