Hi, I am considering having laser hair removal, am HIV+ and currently on medication, but fit and healthy. Is there any reason why I would not be advised to have the procedure? I have not told the clinician of my status nor do I plan to, however are there any risks associated with the procedure or could it have an adverse effect due to the medications?

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem?
