Apparently, we're all supposed to be terrified of them--I mean, who wouldn't be scared of a strain of gonorrhea that seems to be immune to all families of antibiotics ever used to treat it, and makes itself more difficult to catch by being less painful?
So...we're supposed to be scared we're all going to catch a virus/infection that's so difficult to contract that you can only get it through a certain, specific type of social contact. Well. That's just special.
Here's an idea: don't sleep around with random strangers. Don't sleep around with people you know well. Don't. Sleep. Around.
And for those who aren't interested in being a responsible adult and keeping it in their pants...there's also a nifty invention called condoms. About the only thing that doesn't prevent is HPV, which you get from skin contact.
But, of course, that first option (keep it in your pants) isn't mentioned in the article, and the second (condom use) isn't mentioned until the very end. The whole point was that we are all supposed to be terrified that we're going to catch some nasty, drug resistant sexual disease.
Except...I'm not. I don't subscribe to the whole casual sex culture. I'm married to my best friend, and to the only man I'm attracted to. Yeah, there's eye candy out there, but so much of it is dumb, or has spiritual halitosis so bad that it kills even the eye candy factor.
