#AskTheHIVDoc Episode 2: Swab My Butt!


Swabs are a good thing, if you ask Dr. Demetre.

Dr. Demetre tackles the topic of the “gay physical” in the latest installment of the #AskTheHIVDoc web series.

“You need to be tested for HIV at least a couple times a year if not more,” Dr. Demetre said when asked about whether there is some sort of regular check up gay men should be doing. “You need to be screened for sexually transmitted infections, and that doesn’t just mean peeing in a cup. It means getting your butt swabbed and your throat swabbed.”

Watch the entirety of episode 2 of #AskTheHIVDoc below.

#AskTheHIVDoc is a YouTube series created by the Greater Than AIDS organization to help gay men learn more about HIV and sexual health through honest, fun, and no-nonsense discussions. For more information, visit
