Is Safe sex ....Safe...Australian Legal Hookers?

Jul 4, 2009

HI Dr. I have written to you recently about safe sex with Aussie legal brothel workers. I am just wanting to check that using condoms with hookers is safe. They are regulated here and have to have full health checks every 6 weeks or they can't work. I never had a condom break and used one each and every time in only hetro sex, no anal and I am not a drug user. I want to have an HIV test but Iam so fearful of going there, its doing my head in and my brain is getting loaded with it. Please advise. I am happy to dontate.

Response from Dr. Frascino

G'day Aussie-Dude,

HIV cannot permeate intact latex (or polyurethane). No way. No how. If you used your latex (or polyurethane) condoms properly and if they did not fail (break), your HIV risk with your Naughty-Sheilas would be essentially nonexistent. In Aussie-speak: "No worries mate; she'll be apples." So relax Max. Go pet a Koala or eat some of that awful vegemite stuff. Your HIV test will be negative.

Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( In return I'm sending you my good-luck karma that your definitive three-month HIV test will be negative. I'm quite confident it indeed will be.

Ciao and good luck Downunder-Guy.
