When did you last consider your sexual health?

Hi there beautiful ones 🙂

I am especially careful in managing my sexual health, which is an occupational health and safety matter for me!

I have a full STI screening at a maximum time limit of three months (as per Victorian law) – and often as soon as every two months. This ensures my safety and the safety of gentlemen that I entertain. I INSIST on practices that are as safe as possible. (If you ask me for unsafe practices, our time together will be immediately concluded, with no refund provided).

My question to you is – how long is it since you checked your own sexual health?

If you have more than one sexual partner, then you SHOULD be checking your sexual health. If you’re not using condoms, you’re not only putting yourself at risk, you’re putting your partners at risk – and their partners, and their partners – and so on.

The Royal College of General Practitioners (Australia) has been tracking the rise of syphilis infection in Australia. Just like COVID, STI’s such as syphilis seem to LOVE Melbourne for some reason ):

Syphilis infections have increased in Melbourne triple fold since 2014 to the beginning of 2020 (https://www1.racgp.org.au/newsgp/clinical/syphilis-dramatically-on-the-rise-in-victoria-repo) – and that was pre-COVID; the sneaky booty call was at it’s highest during lockdown (don’t pretend you didn’t, if my message requests were any indication, Melbourne was HORNY in lockdown!) – this is extremely concerning. The EASIEST, FREE place to have a full STI check is at Melbourne Sexual Health Clinic at 580 Swanston St. Carlton – visit their website here to find out how to book an appointment, along with outreach GP’s throughout the Metro area who provide the same service as MSHC. Your GP can also offer STI checks.

As indicated here https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/ConditionsAndTreatments/syphilis#bhc-content syphilis often goes untreated – if caught early, treatment can be very effective, however, if left untreated, can cause chronic brain and heart disease.

Historically, figures as diverse as John Batman (yes – the guy that founded Melbourne!) and artist Henri de Toulouse Lautrec (famous not only for his art but his involvement in the culture of the Paris suburb of Montmatre during the Belle Époque from the late 1800’s – WW1, including the creation of the original promotional posters for the Moulin Rouge), died of Neurosyphylis – a bacterial infection of the brain/brain stem, where syphilis had not been diagnosed and treated. It literally sent people “insane”, using historical terms (now we would describe the symptoms to be similar to dementia), as well as causing terrible physical disfigurement, blisters etc. Syphilis was previously treated with mercury, which can cause neurological and behavioural disorders, such as tremors, emotional instability, insomnia, memory loss, neuromuscular changes and headaches. It can also harm the kidneys and thyroid. High exposures have also led to deaths.

Thank goodness for the discovery of penicillin!

Of course, syphilis is not the only STI that can be passed between sexual partners – chlamydia, gonorrhoea, trichomoniasis, HPV, HIV, herpes and pubic lice (crabs) are the most common STI’s that are tested for regularly. The symptoms can range from unpleasant discharge, to sores/warts (which can be extremely painful) to infertility – and in the case of HPV, possible cancer of the cervix (Gardisil is now administered to young women to reduce the risk of cancer of the cervix).

Remember, there is NO cure for HPV, HIV and herpes. These can all be managed medically – but as we have always been taught, prevention is better than cure!

While in lockdown, it’s a GREAT time to organise a blood test. A simple Telehealth appointment with your GP or contacting MSHC via their website info above (or one of their outreach clinics) to make an appointment to attend when it’s safe to do so. A simple blood test could mean the difference between quick treatment and ongoing pain/treatment.

Look after YOU and those that are important to you <3

2020/21 X Awards – WINNER!

We all know that 2020 sucked the big one. In Australia, ESPECIALLY in Victoria, we have suffered through three lockdowns (luckily the last was a ‘reset’ five day lockdown) but we are very lucky indeed to have avoided the huge number of fatalities and the ongoing effects of COVID-19 on our everyday lives. Life is SOMEWHAT normal here now (side note: Victorian Government – if you delay the beginning of the AFL season, I will be PISSED… knowing that my BIG DOLLAR membership and reserve seat is already not a guarantee of getting to a game!)… but I digress!

Yellow and Black BACK TO BACK!

One of the earliest casualties (for me) of Melbourne Lockdown 2.0 (apart from my waistline lol) was attending the 2020 X Awards – Australian Adult Industry Awards which were originally scheduled for August – as the population of Melbourne was limited to one outing a day, a 5km distance limit from home and resulted in us eating our body weight in menulog 😉

No, we didn’t spend lockdown making meth!

I was absolutely flabbergasted to be nominated in three categories – disability service provider, fetish and fantasy provider (with my love Leo Dale as Melbourne Couples Escorts) and Female Escort categories – and after voting was extended to reflect the newly scheduled date of Saturday 20th February 2021, I was FLOORED to be informed that I had reached the TOP THREE in the female escort category.

Last Saturday, Leo and I booked a hotel room, got all dolled up (which was strange in itself after SO long) and attended the awards night at Chaser’s nightclub in Melbourne.

Ya girl in goddess mode
A night out with my love!

We had a fantastic night! Leo placed in 2nd place in the male escort and disability service provider categories… I accepted his awards with him and was of course articulate and able to get across Leo’s thoughts… but that changed pretty quickly…

I WON! I am the X Awards winner in the Female Escort category for 2020/21! I was shaking like a leaf and couldn’t string two words together lol!

Proof – eeep!

I was (and still am) humbled and honoured to be successful in winning this award and I hope I can be a great ambassador for female escorts across Australia – WE ARE AMAZING.

Kisses,

Your Phoebe Mae xoxo
