Letters to Nowhere

The doc is in..

For whatever reason I end up being the one people come to with the odd questions about sex. I really do start to feel like Georgia's answer to Dr Ruth at times. All things considered it's interesting and a bit disturbing the questions I get.

Questions about STDs, about how the female anatomy works, what's a cervix.. ah the joy of knowledge.

This came up when my cousin called to ask if a man can get a urinary tract infection from a woman. A bit more background information and I conclude no, he probably didn't "catch" it from her like a cold. She had one at one time but they weren't sleeping together then. We talk about urethra's and kidney/bladder health for a bit. He thanks me and hangs up.

His area of expertise is animals. I can't think how many times I've called him to ask things like.. "Can I give Tylenol to a cat?, What should the lizard's poop look like?, Can a cat get a yeast infection?" (I thought he was going to have me committed for that one lol)

We joked a few days ago that we should open an advice column to make Ann Landers cringe.

Questions about Sex and Animals! Of course the first time we got a question about with sex with animals we'd both be on the rampage.. sigh.. It was a good idea while it lasted.

  • Wait, can you give tylenol to a cat??!!

    Now I get annoyed with people asking me PC related questions out of hours, I sure don't envy you being asked questions out of hours.

    by this, do you mean from a specific woman he slept with? or with women in general? because if it was the 2nd one, i'd have to disagree, to wit (from the urology channel):

    Men and women infected with chlamydia trachomatis or mycoplasma hominis can transmit the bacteria to their partner during sexual intercourse, causing UTI

    The specific one. His friend was convinced he'd "caught" a UTI from his girlfriend.. but She had one at one time but they weren't sleeping together then

  • Well, since we ARE talking about Georgia, can you really be surprised by the questions? ;)
