    How about universal testing for STDs and wiping out the epidemics.
    For example, more knowledge about people exposed and don’t get
    infected would help other people not get infected.

    Please explain how we would implement universal testing for STDs – testing the entire population for a host of infections on a regular basis would be no easy trick, so I am curious how you would suggest this happen.

  4. the zak says:

    Universal testing is not likely and doesn’t even make sense.
    Not enough people die from STDs to make it worthwhile.

    There’s no universal testing for cancer or heart disease,
    so testing for a considerably lesser disease is not likely.

    I can’t Believe you did the accent…………I keep rewinding it………I can so see you do it and squinting you eyes while you do it. You made me giggle!
    I think Dr. Frank looks like Freddy Prince Jr.
    He is so HOT!
    I would fake being sick just to see him.

    Love ya

    Great Show. Dr. Frank was hot and very intelligent. I love doctors, what with a doctor fetish and all, you can imagine that I love going to the doctor. I agree with the patients flirting and all, I mean you are getting naked for a guy who wont buy you dinner or call you the next morning or stay all night and make you pancakes when all’s you really wanted was a little fun. Its like the perfect fing, in a sorta medical, one sided sorta way. Loved it! I am going to get the book the next time I go to the local super big, corporate chain, bookstore. 😀

    I especially enjoyed this podcast. I had a very good gay doctor while I lived in DC and I miss the feeling of openness since I moved back to Northern Jersey near NYC. I have a doctor that I am out to but the relationship is not the same.

    Jon-Paul was right, I do wish he was my doctor. If I do not find one close to me perhaps Chelsea is not too far to go for a good physician. I good doctor-patient relationship is one of the keys to good health. I ordered Dr. Frank’s book and I am looking forward to my partner and I reading it.

  10. SAM469 says:

    Physician profiles are easily found through the state’s main website where the physician practices.
    http://www.ny.gov/

    Or you could google the name.

  11. the zak says:

    Obviously the doctor was reacting to a sterotype.

    On the other hand, many people in monogamous relationships
    discover they haven’t been when their mate leaves them for
    another person–or they actually discover an affair.

    That is part of hetero culture when a gay man says the word
    monogamy. It’s a kind of prejudice.
