Everything you need to know about HPV (Genital Warts) in this PSA video here.
Question: “Hi. This may seem like a stupid question but.. can you get any sexually related diseases when you are the one getting BJ-ed?”
My Answer: Its not a stupid question at all! The risks of getting HIV are very small if you are the one being fellated by your sexual partner, although, from expeience and testimonies, the risk of catching gonorrhea from being sucked is moderate, especially if the person has a penchance for swallowing and the bacteria might be festering in his/her larynx. If you have reason to fear that you might have gotten a Urinary Tract Infection or whatevet, its best to see a doctor at the DSC clinic. In the meanwhile, drink lots of cranberry juice to cleanse your urinary tract.
Other than being infected with HIV, I also hold the dubious “honour” of being coinfected with Herpes Simplex (how Paris Hilton) and the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), also known as the “Full Flush”.
This is my Story of how I live with HPV, primarily. Was my first time being interviewed by this project done by Action For AIDS in their focus on Singaporean youth who are just beginning to explore their bodies (and of others) and chronicles the experiences of young men & women in Singapore who have to live with STDs. You can read our stories in the link I’ve provided you.
We are faceless and anonymous, but we aren’t silent.
I end this post with an excerpt from the article about my advice on reaponsible sex:
“Full-flush or not, Zack flusters with “guilt and moral concern” and advices others to “never bareback,” but if you must, “only do it with people whose condition you are aware of and people you trust,” using himself as an example stating he looks healthy and fit- more so than most individuals, but you “should never trust a person based on his looks alone,” after all- you do not know what cards he could deal you.”
