I'm a little freaked out by the fact that someone is going to cut something down there, I'd rather tear on my own. I'm going to try the massage approach to the whole trying not to tear. I read that 15 minute perineal massage with some lube can help soften and stretch the skin down there decreasing the risk of bad tearing. I'll find out if it works.
