antibiotic ointments - any point?

Just a wild thought - you know the mild antibiotic ointments that you can put on cuts or blisters to help prevent infection (i.e. Bacitracin, Polysporin, etc.)?  Would there by any usefulness in applying those products to the penis, other genital areas or even the tip of the urethra as a preventative measure after sex?  Just as they prevent bacterial infections in cuts, will they prevent bacterial STDs?

Dude. This will not work. It may cause all sorts of issues.

I agree with Scared.  Those ointments aren't made to be used genitally.

You might be really sorry you tried.  Plus, it wouldn't work.

And since they are oil based, they can eat through a condom, and condoms are your best way of preventing infections.
