Sexual Health


Sexual health is more than just protecting yourself against HIV and STIs. Sexual health includes complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of a disease. It also includes the reproductive health, sexual hygiene and functions of all systems and stages of life.

Ask Dr. Dick

 Steven's (26) question: About a month ago I had sex with a guy when I was intoxicated. We didn't use any lube and I believe I received an anal fissure from it. The pain has since subsided and I can go to the bathroom with no pain or bleeding. Unfortunately, I tried using my dildo on myself after a month and a half because I thought I was fully healed. The results were some slight pain and then bleeding. My fear is that I will never be able to bottom again and that is giving me a lot of anxiety. Should I go for surgery?

I don't want to go to a health professional or facility for I’m not comfortable having these kinds of conversations. I'm also situated in a very small environment with few gay rights facilities.
