Family doctor raps about old people with HIV while throwing condoms

A family doctor has created a hilarious rap warning about the dangers of unsafe sex, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

Over the strains of Vanilla Ice’s 1990 hit Ice Ice Baby, Shannon Dowler – who goes by the stage name Rap Dkta D (pronounced ‘rap doctor d’) – espouses the benefits of lube and condoms.

The video features a series of older couples, including a same-sex couple holding hands as they recline, nude, on top of a mountain.

“No shame in being a freak and getting a little frisky,” she tells the camera during the song, titled STDs Never Get Old.

She then adds, brilliantly: “If there is a problem, lube may solve it / See your family doc if it doesn’t resolve it.”

Perhaps the most memorable line comes before the first refrain of “Safe sex baby,” when Dr Dowler drawls: “Can it really help being sex kittens? Why can’t you wear your little sex mittens?”

The North Carolina doctor adds: “Vaginal atrophy is something / A sex catastrophe, it can be the real thing”.

Dr Dowler, a self-described “STD poet,” points out that one in four people with HIV are over 50.

She goes on to describe the dangers of syphilis and “subtle and sneaky” chlamydia, telling her audience: “No lame excuses, you know to take precautions”.

The doctor has tried her hand at rap before, releasing Off to the STD Clinic You Go in 2015.

The video saw her don a dreadlock wig and rasta-style beanie to lecture teens about safe sex.
