Well I assume they were always strapped up
and that the women that worked at those places wouldn't have been down for "raw dog" even for a sizable tip. Not that it isn't still possible to catch an STD with a condom on. So yeah, they were "lucky" but the way they told it, they basically just automatically *expected* to have a horrible cold every time the did the massage parlor thing- seems like it's pretty much unavoidable in that particular environment. Feelin itchy just thinking about it...
