People are too afraid of doctors. They are hired hands, like anyone you'd hire to help you, a contractor, a baby sitter, a secretary. Just because they've studied disease and medications does not give them the right to judge you morals and ethics.

And lots of people have multiple sex partners. Lots of people who don't consider themselves to be poly or swingers-- People who are "dating." People who are cheating. No doubt some of the medical staff are "dating" or cheating themselves, or have in the past. As long as you are practicing safer sex with condoms, it's really none of their business.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
