Does Your Doctor Need To Know You’re Kinky?

sometimes questions about kink can be very important to make sure your  health care is optimal

Should You Disclose Your Kink To Your Doctor?

As mentioned in the video I want to reassure pups, handlers, kinky buggers and all those in between that as a doctor my primary focus and goal is to ensure you get the best health care possible.

At times I may need to ask questions such as:

  • “do you sleep with men, women or sometimes both?”
  • “Have you ever had a finger, toy or anything up your butt? How about in your mouth?”
  • “May I ask what your gender identity is? Do you have a preferred pronoun?”

The reason I ask these questions is never to embarrass, more to ensure I don’t miss any important health issues.

Take for example men with trans experience. Some trans men will have a cervix meaning pap smears can still be vital to exclude cancers.

Gay men are also at significantly higher risk of anal cancers, depression and suicide. If we don’t ask we can miss some very important issues!

What Sexual Health Screening Should Human Pups Consider?

As noted in the video all human pups should consider a sexual health screening every year. If you’ve had more than 10 sexual partners in less than 6 months it should be done every 3-6 months.

A sexual health screening should include:

  • Throat swab for Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia
  • Anal swab for Gonorrohea and Chlamydia
  • Urine test for Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia
  • Blood test for HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis C as well as testing for vaccination for Hepatitis A and B

I now recommend all men who have sex with other men be screened for anal cancers on a yearly basis. This is a simple exam to do with a finger passed into the anus to check for any lumps. This one simple measure can save lives.

If you are living with HIV sexual health screening is still important as well as CD4 and viral load testing at intervals your HIV specialist recommend.

All men who have sex with other men should consider vaccination for Hepatitis A and B as well as HPV, the human pappiloma virus.

HPV is associated with causing cancers in the throat and anus of men as well as genital warts.

As I always recommend make sure you find a doctor who you feel comfortable with. While some questions may seem pointed or invasive it’s to ensure you get the best possible care, never to cause embarrassment or shame.

We are treating all of you, not just your sexuality. I want the best health outcomes for all my friends.

Yours in awesome health,

Gpup Alpha, sometimes knows as Dr George 🙂
