What's up with the preparation H?

I've seen a few posts here examining their husband's constant use of hemorrhoid cream. I see the correlation but need more clarification. I know that my husband uses it constantly. Even had to have them lanced. These also started around the same time sex life dropped off. Do all gay men experience hemorrhoids regularly?

That is a good question. Me gay ex didn't but that doesn't mean that all gay men do..

Sorry for being gross, but my late GIDXH (not in denial to himself) had chronic diarrhea.  I assume he had Shigellosis, which can be caused by sex back there and uncleanliness.  He was a slob/messy and had encounters in public restrooms. It was one more disgusting thing on the dirt sandwich our marriage was.

Use it as a metaphor of what your life is like with him. Help yourself. You deserve a better life.

No - It's not too late. It's not hopeless. Even there, there's something I can do. I just have to find the will. Ikiru (1952), film directed by Akira Kurosawa
