Your Well-being

When we talk about the health and well-being of men it is often assumed that this only applies to their physical and sexual health only. But men have emotional and spiritual needs too. This section will attempt to address these gaps and provide information and strategies for ensuring your emotional and spiritual well-being. After all, by ensuring a sense of well-being we build a life that is so valued that we won’t want to put it at risk.

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?
