There are some (very limited) cultures where it is done. Very similarly to RIC, the clitoral hood is removed. In some cultures, the clitoris itself is left intact, just the hood removed.

I do see that as inherently and completely different than infibulation & more severe forms of FGM, which is I guess why, despite my own (and DP's) opinion to no circ. if we ever have a boy, I just cannot take the more forceful intactivists or their arguments seriously.
