• Is it an STD or a UTI?

    I'm a little worried. I got kinda stupid and went to a gay sex club on Wednesday night. There I had protected anal sex (I was the penetrative guy) and received a little unprotected oral.

    I'm a little worried. I got kinda stupid and went to a gay sex club on Wednesday night. There I had protected anal sex (I was the penetrative guy) and received a little unprotected oral. I know my risk for HIV/AIDS in that case is rather low, but I'm worried that I might have chlamydia, gonorrhea or the trich, because since that night, I have been experiencing frequent urination and a mild discomfort on the tip of my urethral opening (not painful, but that feeling you get when it stings a little from peeing too much). I think it could possibly be just an irritation from the cheap ID lube that they offered there. But, I've scheduled my testing appointment anyway. It's been less than two days since that night. Could my symptoms show up that fast, or am I panicking too much? One things for sure, I'll never do anything stupid like that again!

  • Ambulance on the freeway. What do you do?

    If you should see an ambulance truck on the freeway (I know rare, right), what the hell should you do? Something tells me that suddenly pulling over and stopping might be dangerous.

  • I am very rich, is it OK for me to wear fake jewelry in public?

    With the price of gold above $1150 an ounce, I feel it's no longer safe to go outside wearing $2,500 on my fingers or $5,000 around my neck. My best friend says this is dishonest and defeats the whole point. What do you think?

    I am a 25-year-old male and I have been wanting to do gymnastics my whole life. The thing is, there was never a real gym where I grew up and my parents were far too poor, ignorant, and ghetto to pay for me to ever take gymnastics classes. I just recently got out of college and I want to really look into exploring what I want to do with my life. My question is, is it too late for someone like me to start gymnastics and eventually become competitive? I heard that for women age is very important, because the female body develops differently, so if they want to get into gymnastics very early in life. I don't know if that's true, but if it is, does the same thing apply to guys as much? I would describe myself as somewhat of an atypical male in that I have always had usually strong lower-body strength. I would describe myself as somewhat of a mix between a dancer's and swimmer's build and I have danced all of my life. Do I have a chance or is it too late?

  • What difference does an open back on a ring make?

    I am looking to buy a gold ring. The jeweler offers both the open back and closed back version. The open back version is cheaper.

I asked around and searched the web, and all I get is the same answer. Is this the truth or is he and all the jewelers I've spoken with full of marketing B.S.? I am very suspicious because the open back version is about $108 cheaper and seems to have a a little less metal. Which is most preferred? Open back or closed back?

In college, I was out, but I was such a overachiever and too busy getting my degree and running for student government, that I never made time for sex or a relationship. Now, the years have passed and all of my friends, and even my younger brother, have outpaced me in the realm of sexual experience. I'm tempted to to put an ad on Craigslist or reply to one, just for the heck of it. I don't want to end up like that guy in the movie "40-year-old Virign" or whatever it's called. Do you think this is a good idea?

    He already paid the $300 insurance deductible to the ring maker and got a replacement sent to him. We did the math on his ring and its gold content and he comes out $400 ahead of the deductible based on the current gold price. We guess this is because he has chubby fingers and wears size 14. The ring company changes the same fee for 18K rings, regardless of finger size, which means he got much more gold than those who usually buy his kind of ring. Is he required to return the ring, or is it his to keep? He tells me he wants to sell it to not only recoup the $300 he paid but get $400 extra in the process. Is this smart or illegal?

    I originally did a balance transfer of some $13,500 in private student loans from Sallie Mae to my Chase credit card. Sallie Mae was charging me 14.9% variable and Chase offered me a weighted average interest rate of 4.22% fixed for life, so long as I make payments on-time. Well, I've been paying steadily and that balance has shrunk to $9,882.14. I remember my first minimum payments being in excess of $250. Now they have come down to less than $200. I still pay them a fixed $250 per month. But, this statement cycle I received a statement which said I had a minimum payment of $0! Yeah, that's right, ZERO. I immediately thought, "Huh? What the heck?". I figured that I had missed a payment or double-paid or something. I checked my account history and everything was okay. So, I called Chase and the lady on the phone told me that since my previous payment exceeded the minimum payment that I wouldn't get one this month. But, I always pay above the minimum payment unless the APR is 0%. Why did they cancel my minimum payment for this month? Needless to say, me being a skeptic, I sent them another $250 anyway.

I mean, this industry is entirely unregulated and doesn't have to comply with the notifications requirements on the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. They can change the terms of my agreement at any time, at will. Can't I then do the very same thing to them in return? I thinking of sending in a letter certified mail, signature confirmation, with return-receipt in case they want to challenge it in court.
