I'm Dr. Dick, or if you prefer, the Dick Doctor. I appear in AmphetaZINE regularly to talk about Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) including HIV/AIDS and how they affect our health and lives. Think of me as a Dear Abby or Ann Landers, only my butt isn't as puckered. If you want to know how STDs will affect you if you are HIV positiveľask. If you want to know how STDs make it easier to get HIVľask. If you are having sex and the condom breaks and you want to know whose job it is to look for the piecesľask. This is your chance to ask anything you want about HIV, STDs, or sexual etiquette.

A-town ready for action?

Dear Dr. Dick,

I am a younger, newly out cub and I am terrified of not having a clean ass for sex. I would be mortified if I accidently left a little gift on someone's dick. I've done some research but thought I would ask the expert, so Dr. Dick how do I make sure my A-town is ready for action?!

Sincerely,

Dear, is A-town ready for action?

Did you know the external anal sphincter is one of the most sensitive places on the human body?!

Well if you want to explore that sensitive pleasure, you want to make sure your A-town is ready for action! By that, I mean let's start with the basics of anal hygiene 101. You want to be confident your back door is properly clean and ready for its special debut.

Let's start with shaving, waxing, or bleaching around the anus. Some guys prefer the natural look and others prefer the smooth, hairless feel. There is nothing wrong with either of those options, it's more of a personal preference and whatever you're most comfortable with. It is a fact that the less hair there is around the genitals and anus, the less chance there is of bacteria sticking around.

Moving on to what practices you can do in the shower to make sure you're A-town is sparkling clean. The shower is a great place to do an internal rinse with an enema. There are many different types of enemas but the most simple is the disposable bulb enema. Using just plain warm water to flush out any fecal matter that could be lining the rectum. You should repeat this process until the water coming out is crystal clear. Make sure you release all of the water, so linger and relax for a few minutes to make sure your tank is empty.

We all know that what goes in, must come out. So limit your intake of food for a few hours before you know you're going to engage in anal play. If you eat clean (meaning a good amount of fiber and vegetables), you will poop clean (meaning there shouldn't be traces of fecal matter left behind).

Keep in mind that arousal is an important part of how to prepare for anal play. To make anal stimulation as pleasurable as possible, include a lot of foreplay and arousal before touching the anus.

Always remember lube is your best friend when it comes to anal play and exploration! Water-based lubricants are always a great choice for anal play, as they can be used with toys and condoms. Just make sure to reapply the lube when things are feeling a little dry or tacky.


Happy Humping,

Dr. Dick


Disclaimer: You can wash out intestinal flora and valuable nutrients if you do too many enemas.. There isn't a set number to abide by, but limit the number of times you do self-enemas. Remember to get tested regularly for STDS and HIV, MSM should get tested every 3-6 months.
