Is using a thong or g-strings safe?

Jul 17, 2005

I just wanna know if using g-string, thongs or t-backs safe? does it not irritated the external genitalia?

Response from Dr. Frascino


And umm . . . why would you be asking me? I'm really much more of a briefs or sometimes boxers guy.

Are g-strings, thongs and t-backs safe? Hmmm . . . well millions of strippers, desperate housewives, supermodels and closeted homosexual Republican politicians love them.

Do they irritate the genitalia? Hmmm . . . I seem to remember an episode of Sex and the City in which Samantha received a pearl thong from one of her lovers. As I recall, while climbing stairs, yes, she found it quite irritating.

Are they safe HIV-wise? That all depends on what happens if and when they come off.

Stay well. By the way, are you a future supermodel or closeted homosexual Republican politician?
