I just got an email from The Body.Com titled "Bathhouse Addiction" that was about how someone got HIV from spending lots of time at a bathhouse. From the tone of this does this mean I should quit going to bathhouses? Does going to a bathhouse put one at a higher risk than gettin sex through other venues? Yes, I practice safe sex, thanks.

Response from Dr. Frascino


It's not where you have sex; it's how you have sex! Bathhouses can be safer than five-star hotels, depending on how you protect your one-eyed monster.
