The Doc Is In: Do I Have To Pee After Sex?

The Doc Is In: Do I Have To Pee After Sex?

Q: I just started having sex and all of my friends tell me I have to pee after. They say that if I don’t pee I can get a UTI. The problem is that I never have to go. I try every time – I run to the bathroom and sit there but nothing ever happens. Is that bad? Do you HAVE to go after? Is there something wrong with me that I can’t go?

So what better way to take advantage of the good weather, spice up the sex life, and get down and dirty (literally) than to take it outside?

Beware of Mutant Acne!

Bad news for me, but good news for the giant under-the-surface zit brewing on my chin: acne bacteria may now be outsmarting the medicines we have been using to cure it. Say it with me: O.M.G.
