RIP Society: Doctor Sexted During Surgery And Sent Nude Selfies To A Patient

Dr. Arthur K. Zilberstein, a 47-year-old Seattle anesthesiologist, spent so much time sexting that he pretty much forgot to do his job. His medical license was suspended when authorities found out about his ”preoccupation with sexual matters” and the “moral turpitude” he displayed in the workplace. From the looks of it, this guy sexted in the middle of surgery while he was supposed to be putting all his concentration into monitoring his patient’s wellbeing. How, exactly, does one get turned on when a person’s body is cut open on the operating table a few feet away!? Keep reading »

When Jackson, Tennessee, woman Terry Ragland was struck with a case of lower back pain, she went to see Dr. Timothy Sweo, who recommended X-rays. When the X-rays came back this is what the doctor said.

“He said, ‘I know what the problem is. It’s ghetto booty,’” recounted Ragland. “I said, ‘Ghetto what?’ He said, ‘Ghetto booty. There’s no cure for it, but I could give you something if you’re having pain.’”

Uh, what?!

Racist Doctor Writes Prescription For Mom To Spank Her 5-Year-Old Biracial Son

Oh, Texas.

A mother appeared before the Texas Medical Board last week to complain about an ER doctor at Huguley Memorial Medical Center who treated her five-year-old boy for a finger infection and wrote a prescription for her to “apply large paddle to bottom of child anytime he needs it.” What’s even more WTF about this story? The physician, Dr. Carl W. Gossett, who is white, asked the child’s race first. When she informed him her son was biracial, the doc asked, “How does your family feel about that?”, meaning, you know, teh interracial sex. Keep reading »

Being A Redhead Hurts

Don’t get me wrong—redheads are awesome. But they also feel more pain than the rest of the population, are more sensitive to heat, and need 20% more anesthesia to knock them out. And a new study shows another odd side effect of being a redhead—they’re less likely to get proper dental care. It’s not their fault—scientists have found that annual teeth cleanings and occasional fillings just hurt more for them. If dentists don’t up the anesthetic ante for the flame-haired, redheaded patients are twice as likely to skip dental appointments and let problems go untreated. [CNN] Keep reading »

Freezing Eggs Now Does Not Mean A Baby Later

A doctor in England is bursting the bubble for women who are thinking of freezing their eggs. Robert Winston calls egg freezing a “confidence trick” on women, since there is only a 6% chance of conceiving through a frozen egg. The process, originally developed for cancer patients wanting to conceive after chemotherapy treatments, has more than doubled in popularity with women hoping to wait for a few years before jumping on the baby train, so that they can get super comfortable in their career or clock a little time with Mr. Right solo before having a baby. Lord Winston warns that “social freezing” is a risky procedure and more research about freezing eggs and the long-term genetic effects of children born via frozen eggs is needed before clinics make freezing services more widely available. The European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology will discuss the eggy process in an upcoming meeting. As women pile more and more things on their plate, do you think it’s safe to save your eggs in one frozen basket? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

HPV: Not Just For Crotches Anymore

According to a new study, HPV is moving on up…to mouths! That’s right, just when you thought Gardasil and Cervarix solved all your problems, now you have to worry about what else you’ve been opening wide. Since the ’70s. throat cancer cases have doubled, and the research shows HPV is to blame, with 39% of all occurrences caused by the human papilloma virus. Before you go cutting your man off from his favorite foreplay, listen to this: men are 35% more likely than women to develop oral cancer from HPV. Sheesh, making a new man go downtown may be riskier than you both think! Still, there’s more bad news — as of yet, there is no way to test male genitalia for HPV or anyone’s throat to see if they’re a carrier. So, it’s a roll of the dice and doctors fear you may even be able to contract the virus from kissing. There goes all the fun! Since this throat cancer link is a new revelation, the cervical cancer vaccines haven’t been tested or proven to prevent it. So, deep throat, you might want to use a condom for oral sex or just give that random stranger a handy and call it a night! [ABC News] Keep reading »

Don’t Clam Up At The Doc’s

When your stiff doctor with cold hands and a lab coat asks you about your sex life, it’s hard to ‘fess up to all the craziness. After all, you don’t necessarily want every single one of your cooter’s conquests be on your permanent record. But a new study has shown that even though it’s easily cured with antibiotics, cases of Chlamydia are on the rise and it’s all our fault. When you fudge your numbers to your GP, you may think it’s a harmless white lie, but it actually affects how you’re treated. Docs only screen for Chlamydia if they think the patient is possibly at risk because they’ve had multiple partners. Now you may argue you don’t have any symptoms to speak of, but 70-to-75% of Chlamydia cases are asymptomatic. So while you think you may know, you could have no idea. [About.com]

Parents Want Kids’ Doc To Talk To Them About Sex

Talking to kids about sex must be tough. It’s probably not something that I would look forward to if I were a parent. Actually, I can’t even remember being given “the talk” when I was a wee girl. So, it’s not surprising that sexual topics were among the top 10 that parents hope doctors will discuss with adolescent patients, according to a national poll on children’s health — if the doctor covers menstruation and hair growth, parents don’t have to, right? Sexually transmitted diseases and the physical changes of puberty made the top 10, but, interestingly enough, sexual abstinence did not. [University of Michigan] Keep reading »
