Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Sri Lankan Guy,

Thanks for your kind invitation! If I do make it to Sri Lanka, do I get to attend one of your photo shoots?

I'm glad you're feeling less tense. I must admit, however, many of the high fashion models I've seen on the catwalks of late do tend to have a very tense look to them!

I'm continuing to send my best good-luck/good-health karma.

I'm here if you need me.

A Srilankan hindu's depression.Life line Dr.Robert..

Hello Dr.Robert,

How Are you?I hope you are in good health.May I mention to you the fact that you are a wonderful person,ought to be,I mean not many people out there are ever willing to offer help and give sane advice and thats Precisely what you have been doing here.Its takes a Big hearted individual with a clean conscience to lend a helping hand to people in distress.Thank you for being there Sir. DISTRESS!! Now who would know the meaning of that word more than me I wonder! I am an upcoming male model here in Sri Lanka,and I realised real soon that indeed its a "Dog-eat-Dog" kind of situation in this profession..Casting Couch..subordination and all.Anyways,I was more or less persuaded to sleep with my producer [female] a Single woman in her 40's.Ended up having unprotected insertive vaginal sex with her once.A few months later,I fell for a fellow female model and few days of dating brought us so close that I made love to her...Insertive vaginal sex .NO CONDOM This time too.... on the beach in Colombo City resort.Again exactly 2 months ago while working on an overseas Delhi,India,I has sex..vaginal ..UNPROTECTED with a German lady who was introduced by my friend. That makes a good Three episodes of unprotected vaginal sex with three women of UNKNOWN Hiv status..It cant get any worse..Can It Dr.Robert??..As such my life and carrier have been anything but a bed of roses.. a modelling carrier supposedly is..Ha Ha... Now ,matters have gone from bad to worse with the kind of indiscretion..and utter insensibility I have displayed by those three episodes of vaginal sex with three women..with out using a condom........Dr.Robert I have been absolutely engulfed by the thought of HIV ...I refused an Ad-Campaign and also a year's contract with a fairly succesful model agency......thanks to my paranoia,obsession with HIV.I dont know what's gonna happen Dr.Robert..Its absolutely distressing.I found this site accidently about a week back and mustered up the courage to ask you to help me out..bail me out..throw me a lifeline ..Please Dr.Robert.I have been going to the devout HINDU,very so often trying to get some peace of mind.If you could write back to me I would remain indebted for the rest of my life to you..I mean it Sir.I have'nt the courage to get tested yet..I would want to..PLEASE let me know if I too could WOOHOO? COULD I EVER........

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Distressed Sri Lankan Hindu Friend and Upcoming Male Model,

Well first off, I'm not exactly sure the connotation of a "dog-eat-dog" world precisely describes having to have sex with fellow models and producers, but OK, I get your drift.

Your HIV risk is three episodes of unprotected vaginal insertive sex with three sexy women of unknown HIV status. Do you have even the slightest hope of a WOO-HOO following your HIV test??? Yes, of course. In fact, the odds are very much in your favor! The estimated per-act risk for acquiring HIV from unprotected insertive penile-vaginal intercourse with a partner known to be HIV positive is 5 per 10,000 exposures. Your estimated risk would be even less, because we don't know the HIV status of your sexy sexed-up sex partners. So whether you are an upcoming model or an up-and-cuming model, your actual risk of testing HIV positive remains low!

Should you be stressed? No, instead I would suggest you get your three-month test as planned, remember to use condoms on all future job- and/or pleasure-related sexcapades and never forget that stressed spelled backwards is DESSERT!

I'm sending you my best good-luck/good-health karma that your definitive HIV tests will be negative, OK? Now when are you going to send me some of your modeling shots?

Good luck.

Dr. Bob

SO can i really finally give this up?
