Expert Q & A Answers About oil-based lubricant risks

K-Y Liquid makes me and my husband feel a burning sensation. Do we need to use a different lubricant?

My husband and I were both virgins when we married last week. We’ve been enjoying great sex, but decided that - for the extended efforts of newlyweds - we needed extra lubrication. We chose K-Y Liquid. It worked well until last night. As soon as my husband inserted his penis, it was like we both were on fire. We ran for the shower. Once rinsed we felt better, but we are hesitant to try again. Please help!

Do STDs ever develop on their own?

If I had sex with my girlfriend, and neither of us has a sexually transmitted disease (STD), can an STD form on its own? Also, I’ve had unprotected sex with my girlfriend using baby oil, and now I have little pimples or blisters on the bottom of my head of my penis. Could that be from the baby oil? Or could it be something else?
