    Okay, not really a disease, but an infection. I went to the doctor today for what I thought was a "UTI" but in reality is something called Prostanitis. The doc said that in my case it is because I don't climax enough to flush out my system. How crazy is that. What a pick up line that gives me, "Hey, if you don't have sex with me, my penis will be sick."

    I hear ya. I went to a urologist once with a major pain in my left ball that I'd convinced myself was terminal. After a series of questions (Have you been having more sex than usual lately? Have you been having less sex than usual lately? To which I said I hadn't been having any since I'd recently broken up with someone, I was depressed and wasn't even jerking off much) it turned out I produce a ton of sperm and the build-up was causing the pain and that I need to "ejaculate at least 3-4 times a week for optimal vascular health." That was his 'prescription'. Let's just say that all my friends wanted the name of my doctor.

    Had the same problem a few years back. Thought it was uti but doc said that's not that common for men. Ended up taking antibiotic for a few days and followed up with urologist a couple of times with nothing more invasive than a rectal exam of the prostate a couple of times and it cleared up. Urologist told me to have more sex with the wife. She liked that.
