I bought a sex doll from love shop and had sex without washing it. It was totally new. Is that transmit HIV . may someone use it before selling to me?

I bought a sex doll from love shop and had sex without washing it. It was totally new. Is that transmit HIV . may someone use it before selling to me?

No risk: It is exceedingly unlikely that it was used before it was sold, but you could ask the shop if you remain concerned. Even if it was, there is no realistic chance of HIV. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

We have been maried 25 years the later 17 years no intimate contact. He is on testoterone patches and taking cialis. Nothing . I have found him on porn sites. He just has no interest in me. After 17 years is it too late to even try?

We have been maried 25 years the later 17 years no intimate contact.  He is on testoterone patches and taking cialis. Nothing . I have found him on porn sites.  He just has no interest in me.  After 17 years is it too late to even try?

I : I suggest talk with him and ask him directly (in a non-acusatory or judgemental manner). There are so many things that can impact a man's interest in sexual activity with his spouse. Some men become less sexually excited with their wife after she has born a child. If the relationship is strained or lacking in emotional intimacy, that could be a deterent. Some men feel more sexually aroused when something seems "naughty" to them. I would ask him why he has not had sexual contact in such a long time. Since he is using cialis, is treated with testoterone and he goes to pornographic sites/ these things are suggestive that he still has a sex drive (libido). Sometimes, expressing interest and giving him permission, may help to get over a bump. If you are missing sexual intimacy with him, i would let him know how important it is to you. If you have been unresponsive in the past to sex, this could keep him away. Invite him to share this form of intimacy with you. If there seems to be a block, may he would be willing to consider seeing a couples therapist. It does take two to tango and you would both need to have the desire to work past this issue. Good luck. ...Read more

Can you sell Plan B that states only for 17 and older patients? I am aware that the law recently changed but my pharmacy still has old packaging boxes

Can you sell Plan B that states only for 17 and older patients? I am aware that the law recently changed but my pharmacy still has old packaging boxes

You are selling it?: I'm sure the pills have an expiration date on them, even with the old packaging, they should last a while. But more importantly, it is generally considered safe for women of all ages. But depending upon the product, the pharmacy may require an id, or even a doctor's prescription for some ec's (ella). Check your local laws. This link might help: http://ec.Princeton.Edu/questions/ecconsent.Html. ...Read more

Recently been on boys holiday and oral
Sex with condom from African street worker. And worried be caught AIDS and thinking what if the condom split?

You must be worried!: ...as well you should be. You can be somewhat reassured if you didn't see the condom break...it probably didn't. 4th generation HIV antibody/antigen tests are considered accurate at 2 to 6 weeks after exposure. You should get one.If another test is negative at 3 months, you can breath a sigh of relief. I hope this scare will permanently prevent you from pursuing this HIGH risk behavior. Stay well! ...Read more

I had anal sex with my boyfriend and he ejaculated in my rectum afterwards we played with toys that were inserted in the vagina is ot possible to get pregnant from this as i was fertile at the time?

Slim chance: If the toys were inserted in your rectum, and then your vagina, quickly after he ejaculated, there is a "chance" you could get pregnant. It is not reommended to stick anuything in your rectum and then into your vagina, as it is a recipe for a possible infection. Do a pregnancy test to be safe. ...Read more

Can I get HIV from being naked on a guy's bed and inserting my own finger into my own anus while he watch? He might be HIV positive. We had no contact

Can I get HIV from being naked on a guy's bed and inserting my own finger into my own anus while he watch? He might be HIV positive. We had no contact

No: You are an adult now. You cannot infect yourself with HIV. This is basic knowledge that every grownup should possess. Please read a good basic book about sexuality. Let me also reassure you that this kind of exploring with a friend is fine and many guys try stuff like this. Enjoy yourself, educate yourself and love wisely. ...Read more

If i bin treated for HPV .. Sprayed .. No more bumbs she said i'm wart free .. Can i start my life with my new partner .. Can we be fully intimate ?

If i bin treated for HPV .. Sprayed .. No more bumbs she said i'm wart free .. Can i start my life with my new partner .. Can we be fully intimate ?

Must use condom: Unfortunately we don't know when or if hpv disappears from the skin. It can stay latent for years before warts ever show up. Hpv can stay in the skin even after the visible warts have been treated. We sometimes see recurrence after many years of being wart-free. Hpv tests also can go from (+) to (-). Certain hpv types can cause cervical or anal cancer. Please protect your partner and use a condom. ...Read more

It : It sounds like the infection has resolved completely. She should check with her doctor to make sure she is not a chronic carrier. Even if she is a carrier she is likely not contagious. If her doctor says she is completey clear then you should feel assurred that you are safe. ...Read more

My boyfriend went to the doctor yesterday and found out he has genital warts i asked all my sexual partners (there weren't a lot) and they all were either tested or are in relationships w/ girls who have been tested and none of them seem to be infected. I

My boyfriend went to the doctor yesterday and found out he has genital warts i asked all my sexual partners (there weren't a lot) and they all were either tested or are in relationships w/ girls who have been tested and none of them seem to be infected. I

It : It will be difficult to know where he got them. Mouth burning after oral sex is not a common finding with contracting genital warts. He may have gotten them from a prior sexual partner as well, as they don't always show up right away. The most important thing is that he treats them completely, and that you both always use condoms to prevent infection. You should also have a gynecological examination and let your doctor know about your concerns. ...Read more

Hooked up with someone but there was NO penetration and NO ejaculation. We may have made contact for 3 seconds outside the skin. Am I pregnant?

Hooked up with someone but there was NO penetration and  NO ejaculation. We may have made contact for 3 seconds outside the skin. Am I pregnant?

Doubtful : If there was no penetration and ejaculation, it is doubtful but if there was even a little ejaculate, inside the vagina, you could be pregnant. You might want to get some education at planned parenthood, talk with a counselor, parent, teacher about your choices and whether you are ready for sex now. There is no rush. ...Read more

Anytime there: is the possibility of sperm entering your vagina you could get pregnant! Now in this situation it is unlikely. What is more likely is next time things will progress even farther. However, if you don't want to have babies use contraception. If you don't want STD's use condoms. ...Read more

Can HIV or STD live on a sex toy? bought it online thru Adam&eve.com,package was closed but not sealed, now worried since they accept returns.

No risk, don't worry: First, it is exceedingly unlikely that the company would repackage potentialy used toys without first sterilizing them. But why not call them and ask for reassurance? Second, HIV and all STD germs die when they dry out, so even if somehow a toy hadn't been cleaned, there would be no risk without visible contamination with wet fluids or blood. ...Read more

Why buy sex toys online?

Why buy sex toys online?

Privacy variety cost: Some people are embarrassed about their need or desire to use a sex toy. Buying it online avoids the need for a face to face purchase through a conventional store. Buying anything online tends to offer you a wider variety of choices and frequently a better price, but perhaps less convenient service. If your toy is defective, you will probably have to mail it back to the vendor which takes time. ...Read more

I got a sex toy online "new" and I used it. I now think it may have been used before me. Would syphilis or any STDs survive long enough to infect me?

No risk, no worries: First, the chance a vendor would re-sell a used sex toy seems low. Even if re-sold, the chance the vendor would not clean it probably is even lower. Finally, drying kills all STD viruses and bacteria, which would therefore not survive. Nobody ever caught syphilis, HIV, or any other STD in this way. No worries at all. ...Read more

Why do some people enjoy sex toys?

Why do some people enjoy sex toys?

Everyone's different: Everyone is different. Some enjoy sex toys while others don't. Some like various positions while others like just one. Once weekly is enough for some but once daily isn't enough for others. The point is that everyone is different. The difficulty is in finding a "perfect" match w/your partner. If that's not possible, know that your partner shouldn't make you feel guilty for being different. ...Read more

Clean and observe: This is one of the rare instances where I may actually recommend a douche to remove spores from the vaginal area. Then soak in tub or shower using a handheld showerhead to thoroughly rinse the area. Finally, close observation - if you start having significant irritation or discharge, see your doctor right away. If symptom free after a couple of days, you are likely in the clear. ...Read more

How long does syphilis live on an object (like a sex toy)?

How long does syphilis live on an object (like a sex toy)?

Probably not at all: Drying kills syphilis bacteria (and probably all other STDs), and nobody has been reported to have caught syphilis through sex toys -- only by direct sexual exposure. Of course sex toys should be cleaned between use by different persons, but failure to do so probably still is low risk as long as enough time has passed for fluids on the device to have dried up. ...Read more
