Woo Hoo From Papi

Aug 29, 2004

Hey Dr. Bob,

You are one hot guy-- but also such an inspiration AND your wit, acumen, perspective are so admirable-- enough. Simply one big fan here!

I am the guy you referred to as "Papi" (although I am in the same decade of life as you are-- just towards the end of the range) who only recently entered the "fold" with regrettably random oral sex (both receptive and insertive) with guys I met online. Of course, I worried until my test came back NEGATIVE today, but there is a real question here:

I would like to continue to meet guys (more of a friendship thing than random encounters), BUT, I know a lot of guys are reluctant to use condoms for ORAL sex believing that I am being overly cautious. Do you have any SAFE SEX suggestions for maintaining an active sex life while also staying out of harm's way?

AND by the way, we've got to "DD" -- Defeat Dubya!

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Papi!

I'm a Papi, you're a Papi . . . . Papis rule!

Congratulations and WOO-HOO Papi! Great news!

Every sexually active Papi I mean person needs to decide what level of risk they are personally willing to take. Other Papis I mean people may disagree with your choices, but don't let their opinions dictate your behavior. It is true that oral sex carries a very low risk for HIV transmission. However, low risk is not no risk! I can assure you there are many Papis I mean hot dudes who have set their safer sex limits at the same level as you. You may not find them in the chat room "," but I assure you they exist! Perhaps a good place to search would be at a DD rally. After all, DD-dudes certainly can recognize a real danger when they are confronted by one, right?

Stay safe. Stay well. And yes "DD!"

Dr. Bob

Thank you
