Follow up to the masseur barebacked me

Aug 11, 2007

Hi Dr. Bob,

I hope you remember me. A week after my last sexual encounter with the masseur, I went to see a doctor because my anus was still hurting, swollen, itching, and sometimes I see some blood in my stool and on the tissue. Oh and I also had some burning sensation around my anus area. During that time, I kept pooping frequently but in small amount and my stool was watery. And the key point is: I also kept farting and whenever I farted some brown, but semi-transparent mucus-like stuff would come out. I searched online for symptoms of STD's and learned that some STD's can cause one to have yellow discharge. So I foolishly made the conclusion that what came out whenever I farted was indeed the yellow discharge and told the doctor that I had "yellow discharge". Without an exam, she said she suspected that I had gonorrhea and chlamydia. But she did investigate my anus later on and took out some samples to the lab. She started treating me for the two STD's. She also said she would call me to give me the results, but she never did.

I emailed the masseur and he gave me a prompt response and he seemed really sincere and caring. He also emailed me the following morning and said he went in to do a test. And 3 days later, he emailed me back and said he was tested for everything and he was clean.

Now to sum up, I am starting to worry that I might have misled the doctor into "assuming" that I had gonorrhea and chlamydia in the first place. As much as I trust her expertise, a part of me would like to think I never had gonorrhea and chlamydia, and my symptoms were just symptoms of a hemorrhoid and an anal fissure. The question is: did what came out of my butt whenever I farted fit the description of the yellow discharge caused by gonorrhea and chlamydia? The brown mucus like stuff that came out ONLY came out when I farted, and they didn't leak on its own.

Sorry I just wrote another long one. But I want to thank you for taking your time answering our questions. You're such a role model!

I'm glad I wasn't trying to eat dinner while responding to your question about leaky farts and yellow versus brown butt mucous!

Dude, the doctor you visited took samples for analysis. If you're wondering what you had or have, you should give her a call and find out! Having me guess what would or would not be consistent with this or that diagnosis is not nearly as helpful as just getting your lab results! Frevinsakes!

The masseur barebacked me... Jul 19, 2007

Hi Bob, I am a 23-year-old student in the closet who never tried sex before today. 2 days ago, I made a decision to hire an erotic masseur who seemed really professional to explore sex. But what happened today made me feel like I was raped.

When I went into the studio, he told me he is clean and that he gets a body check very often and that everything was negative. And he also said that if we ever tried anal he had condoms available. He started giving me a back massage and then he started poking my hole with his penis. I was laying on my stomach and I didn't have my glasses on so I just assumed he had a condom on. After a while he pulled out and massaged me again. And before we finished he fucked me again for about 5 to 10 minutes and I thought he had the condom on. I came first so he pulled out and started jerking off. It was by then that I realized he didn't have a condom but I was too scared to say anything. But what scared me even more was that he started eating my cum on the bed and he literally ate all of it. And at last he came.

Before I left, he showered me and said I have nothing to worry about because he didn't cum in my ass and he is not a big precummer (which seemed to be true because I tried to jerk his penis during the session and there was no precum). But right now I am REALLY scared. He rimmed me like crazy, ate all my cum, and barebacked me and this is just my first session with him. He probably does it with other clients too. I really felt like he raped me. Do you think my chances of infecting with HIV is high? I think I am going to have a check after 3 months but this is scaring me already...

Response from Dr. Frascino


Sorry your first out-of-the-closet sex-capade had to be with someone so irresponsible! Although it is hard to claim rape when you hired the dude and were voluntarily lying on his bed in the studio while he massaged, rimmed and eventually prodded you! No doubt you learned a very important lesson about your individual responsibility to make sure everyone is "dressed" for the occasion before allowing anyone to take the plunge!

Unprotected anal receptive sex does place you at risk for STDs, including HIV. I agree you need an HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. The estimated per-act risk for acquiring HIV from unprotected receptive anal sex with a partner confirmed to be HIV positive is 50 per 10,000 exposures. Your estimated risk would be less, because we do not know the status of your erotic rub-a-dub-dubber and also because he did not ejaculate in the tunnel of love.

Take a read through the archives of this forum. You should find the information and testimonials enlightening and reassuring.

Good luck!

Dr. Bob
