So presuming even a modicum of truth, you are (likely) not only a carrier but guilty of spreading disease to many, many otherwise innocent ladies.

So congrats, you can feel good about killing yourself.
If that is true, it's disgusting. Sorry, not sorry.

More brilliance on display.

This one thinks financial status makes a person nearly immune, and that "exotic" sex acts are the problem.

https://www.optionsforsexualhealth.org/sexual-health/sexually-transmitted-infections/can-i-get-sti-if

"Some STIs are transmitted differently than others. Some STIs are transmitted through vaginal fluid, seminal fluid and/or blood, but others are transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. A condom can act as a barrier for fluids but it does not eliminate all skin-to-skin contact. As a result, transmission of STIs such as herpes, HPV, syphilis, pubic lice, or scabies can occur even if a condom is used.

Condoms are not always used correctly. Condoms that are not used correctly can put someone at risk for infection. STIs can be transmitted if the condom: breaks, is used after initial sexual contact, is torn, or comes off completely.

STIs that can be transmitted through oral sex include herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis and HPV. You can make oral sex safer by using a condom or an oral dam and avoiding oral sex during a herpes or cold sore outbreak."


I don't see how anything "exotic" needs to occur in order to contract an STD, unless you call regular intercourse or oral sex "exotic".

Well, as much as the liberals hate it, what they teach in school IS true. I graduated in the mid-2000s and had sex-ed in school and was never taught that abstinence was the only way. Even here in so-called backwoods North Carolina, we were told about condoms and birth control. However, we were taught that abstinence is the only true way of preventing STDs and pregnancy, and that's true.

Yes, birth control helps reduce chances of pregnancy. Condoms help prevent STDs. Both are still a chance, though, especially when you're dealing with irresponsible teenagers who might not take their birth control like they are supposed to or who might not put on a condom correctly.

At the end of the day, I think sleeping with a lot of people is gross, with or without protection. I'm not miss goody-two-shoes, and I'm actually an Atheist, but screwing a bunch of people randomly all the time is probably going to result in some kind of problem. Hopefully, it's not a too-big problem -- like a treatable STD -- but condoms do fail, not everyone takes their birth control every day like they are supposed to (and things like antibiotics or getting sick and throwing up can cause them to fail), etc.

Screwing everything that walks is gross. I don't mean it from a religious or moral standpoint, because I'm not religious. I mean it from a physical standpoint. If you're screwing all of these people, you're probably kissing them, too. You're swapping spit and other bodily fluids with a person you don't know. The crazy thing about that is that the same people who do that all the time probably use hand sanitizer all the time or are anal about a friend double-dipping with the chips and salsa at the bar, all before they pick up some guy or girl they've never met and swap spit, do oral, have sex (with or without a condom), etc.

Disgusting.

No....that couldn't be argued at all, at least not successfully

Hep C treatment has advanced tremendously in the past 3 years and there are now effective "cures" for Hep C with one pill regimens for relatively short terms compared to the previous treatment with interferon

Hep C can be cured in 2016

HIV there is no cure
