Thinking of Having Receptive Anal Sex with TS Escort

Aug 17, 2011

Dear Dr Bob,

I'm a closeted gay. I have been thinking and planning of having protected receptive anal sex with a transsexual escort primarily to get a feel of being sodomized. What is my risk for HIV here presuming we use the condom correctly and it doesn't break?

Response from Dr. Frascino


HIV cannot permeate intact latex. No way. No how. So if the latex condom is used appropriately and doesn't fail (break), your HIV-acquisition risk would be essentially nonexistent. However, it's worth noting that condom efficacy in real-world experiences is as low as 85% in some studies, primarily due to operator error (improper condom use).

If this is your first backdoor experience, remember, lubrication is your friend!

Dr. Bob
