Skip to comments.STD in numbers: Risk of contracting various STDs with one-time unprotected homosexual sex for men
Posted on 01/20/2020 9:40:06 AM PST by fwdude
INTRODUCTION Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections acquired from another person mainly through the pathway of sexual activity. STDs are very common and are responsible of a heavy burden to public health in many countries. Luckily, these diseases are treatable. Some of them are curable, and most importantly, all of them are preventable.
In the United States, about 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year. That means that the average American has a 6% annual probability of getting an STD. Of course, this probability varies widely depending on many factors, and homosexual intercourse tends to be highly placed among the risk factors associated with contracting an STD.

This statistic in the article jumped out at me in particular:
While other STDs, such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, are much more common, HIV is by far the disease responsible of the highest mortality attributed to STDs. In the United States, the number of deaths attributed to HIV in 2017 was 34 times higher than the number of deaths attributed to all other STDs combined.[emphasis added]
Doctor told me nearly 90%+ of people have herpes- of course most have herpes 1- the type passed on by kissing- grandparents can transmit it, relatives when they greet families- etc- cold sores- which remain contagious even after the scab mostly heals and it becomes not so noticeable
Course it’s not deadly- but i was shocked that so many people around the world have it- it’s almost a given that a person is gonna get it-
I actually dodged the herpes 1 virus for most of my life until the last decade. Never got a cold sore, ever, until I was first infected in my 40s.
It doesnt even required direct contact. You can get it from shared eating utensils.
I admit I am no statistician, so I might embarrass myself here. Nearly half of all Americans are married (48%) While that certainly doesn't reduce the risk of STD to zero, it would provide a pretty decent degree of safety. The "Average American" doesn't worry about this stuff.
Homosexuals who have sex with strangers in public restrooms have more to worry about. But they are not the Average American.
Depravity has its price.
That was why they paraded around the relatively small number of truly innocent AIDS victims (from tainted bold transfusions) when AIDS was spreading; they knew most people wouldn’t relate to it otherwise.
Very disturbing there is a push to allow perverts to donate blood and serve in the military (think of the medics); purely political decisions, with disastrous consequences.
Imagine troops in a hot zone asking for an airdrop of AZT...
Who knew, that risky promiscuous anonymous sex activity , puts one at higher risk of diseases? Hopefully those at risk heed these warnings.
The bottom line (statistically) is that when a teen or young adult homosexual male moves into the city (where HIV is concentrated) and starts going hog wild with bath house orgies, or drug/alcohol-fueled casual hook ups in gay bars, he will likely contract HIV in the first few months - and won’t know it for at least six months, while infecting others.
and i forgot to mention- it can be passed on when people never even have any symptoms- they are unaware that they have it- nasty little virus-
those who engage in that lifestyle very often seek infection on purpose
they are not part of the “in” crowd among gays until they have it
About 2/3 rds of people with HIV in 2012, were gay men, according to the article.
Since they are such a small percentage of the general population, their individual chance of being HIV positive is about a couple of hundred times higher than the average American.
When you drill down (poor choice of words) among that population of gay men to those highly active in the cities, not having HIV is probably the exception, rather than the rule.
Chicken pox is a form of herpes as well
the risk to non homosexuals getting aids did increase quite a bit though through non sexual encounters- drug use- dirty needles- emergency workers working on aids infected crash victims, doctors and nurses getting stuck by needles with aids blood on them from the patient- sports players where blood is involved- and their teams-
lots of people ended up getting infected- especially before they recognized how it was being transmitted and knew what precautions to take-
[[Very disturbing there is a push to allow perverts to donate blood]]
The left are insane, murderous pukes that care more about protecting the low lifes, the immoral, the promiscuous, the criminals etc- in life than they are about protecting innocent people—
Right now “The Restrainer” is active- preventing, as much as possible, the all out evil assault that will occur when the Restrainer is removed- What this means is, that for now- even though we do keep losing battles with the insane left- we are still a force that restrains them from all out insanity and all out evil- We inject common sense- but sadly we’re losing the battles more and more as the world turns more insane- common sense is being thrown out the window-
When their is no more restrainer- no more common sense- it’s literally going to be hell on earth- and most of everything that is good, decent and moral will be destroyed - This whole 700 different genders crap, trannies in bathrooms of opposite sex etc- is just the beginning- it’s gonna get much worse-
That is so true
And even using condoms, they can break
Yup- and shingles I believe-
“I actually dodged the herpes 1 virus for most of my life until the last decade. Never got a cold sore, ever, until I was first infected in my 40s.”
You could have been infected as a teen. The virus can stay dormant for decades and often pops up decades later when your auto immune system is weakened.
I know far more people get AIDS in different ways now, and that in some countries it is primarily a heterosexual disease; I was referring to the start of the epidemic - when the drug use angle wasn’t much of a story.
Perverts at the time resisted the closing of the bathhouses (crying oppression), and today they re-write history as though the government did nothing.
I've been plagued with cold sores since I was a young child.
One thing I have noticed tho, since I retired, the flare ups have subsided considerably which leads me to believe that the stress levels at work may have been an underlying cause of them....
i did too- had them bad as a kid- then didn’t have them for many years- but had some health issues later and they cropped up again- stress definitely brings them out-
yeah, it’s just totaLLY insane that they scream about ‘discrimination’ because they aren’t allowed to give blood anonymously without any screening first- I don’t understand it- it’s totally devoid of common sense-
