I'm referring solely to HSV-2. Most statistics show it to be around 1 in 5. But that doesn't include those that have it, but have yet to be diagnosed. Let's say out of 10 random people, 2 have it going by the ratio. We'll say 1 more has it, but has not been diagnosed. 3 out of 10 is just marginally below 1/3.

WOW! 32 pages of posts in five days! Is there any question that people obviously ARE obsessed about how many other people someone had "been with"?

Have another perspective - The OP asked if men are critical of women for "getting around", and some still are, for different reasons, and some men may be hypocrites in this regard. But how many women out there would be uninterested in a man with 1 "notch on the belt" because they assume such a man lacks the experience to perform well?

"Women"... "these people"???? Did you happen to read the stats on men? Or is it only "women" that are "these people"?

Wow.

There are no hpv test for men! There's no telling how many men have it. Go back and read my post, I think I mentioned that. Do your research on it. That's why I think it's ridiculous all these people saying they don't care how many people some slept with.

I do not think a lot of people are saying they flat out do not care. However, there is a difference between labeling people who have had 10 over a 10 year single life and what some are talking about here. There is a middle ground.

I think STD stats have been used as a scare tactic.

I am 37, single, female... And I have not had one single STD... The more you educate yourself (without propaganda) through speaking with real people (a doctor, for example) is better than being able to spout off figures found online without knowing anything else but the dreaded word "STD".

"I think STD stats have been used as a scare tactic. " As a matter of fact I know of no responsible sexually active adults that have contracted an STD.

Ha, ha, I don't know many sexually responsible adults because they all think that using condoms during intercourse is an iron clad solution to std's. Yet, when they engage in oral, nothing is used. NOT ONE person I've ever met used dental dams or condoms during oral except on pc porn films. Now that's a big chunk outta the sex routine most of you like to do with strangers, yet it falls by the wayside with the idea that AIDS isn't transferred orally although it could be if there are open wounds or soft tissue. Not to mention all the other viruses waiting for an entrance way and what is better than a warm orifice for it to thrive as it doesn't know the difference from one or the other.

There is a new strain of gonorrhea that is transmitted orally as well as the usual ways. And it's great no one here is tested positive but does that mean it's a 100% chance no ever will? I'd hate to be that, "Ooooh, hmmm...". Still, most will ignore it blissfully and continue playing russian roulette with their bodies.
Good luck with that, btw.

Or conversely you can just live (or more accurately not) in fear of the bogeyman and do nothing. No one gets out alive but plenty live without ever living. I'll not go that way, thank you.
