Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi JJ,

You shoved your foot up someone's butt. Hmm. I always thought that was just a descriptive phrase. You must have really small feet, or the other guy must have a really big and accommodating butt. Playing footsie with someone's backdoor is not considered a risk for acquiring HIV. PEP is certainly not warranted.

Please consider my circumstances, I beg u.
