The online places have labs everywhere. I'm sure you could find a local one, if you go that route. In fact, you can put in your zip code on their websites and they'll give you a list of their local...

I do compare as well. But, in the opposite direction. I measure every person I come across by my dp. Most come up short. Obviously, this is an example of positive comparision (at least for my dp!)....

I gotta say, at age 4, if my mom tried to put a thermometer in my rectum, I'd be scarred for life! I honestly don't know why they sell those. They seem more like torture instruments to me.

No, I wouldn't.

I would, of course, go through ALL my options of reconciliation and reanimation of love/desire/intimacy. But, assuming they all failed, then I would not stay.

I'd tell her to 1. make safety a priority. In other words, if you want to have any kind of sexual fun - get an STD test from the man and use condoms. Always. No Exceptions. They're very easy to do...
