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.

Dont forget bug chasers and AIDS roulette parties
I still blame MaryJane Rottencrotch.
When you donate blood, no matter who you are or how you answer the questionnaire, your blood is still screened for certain blood borne pathogens including HIV.
Each and every time Ive donated blood (which I do a couple of times a year) I have to answer a lengthy questionnaire. But at the end of the day, the answers I put down are voluntary. It is not as if a background check is performed to confirm my answers are truthful.
the problem was that back when, they weren’t screening for aids- and i don’t really wanna risk a mistake in screening of known aids patients who give blood- aids is forever- and it’s deadly-
Somehow, I have beaten these horrible odds. In 30-plus years of marriage, never using “protection”, I dodged this gigantic cumulative risk. Liberals would never guess how I managed that miracle.
Couple that with the fact that the CDC (or was it the FDA?) determined that condoms fail 40% of the time in faggot sex and 10% of the time in heterosexual sex.
If ever there was an argument for heterosexual, monogamous marriage.............
Very unlikely, per my doctor. The initial infection is always accompanied by a flare up before any dormancy is experienced. I never had a single cold sore or anything like one, ever in stressful times. This first flare up was a doozy, covering my chin as well. The doctor confirmed it as a new infection.
That 6% number is way high. It’s based on 20MM new cases of STD per year, not on the number of new people catching something. So that 20MM number includes people who get several diseases, or other diseases more than once, counting each case as a ‘new’ person. So cut that number in half, if not smaller. Also, not everyone has the same amount of sex, some are way more active (not every positive encounter leads to a positive transmission). Some are also more spread around, greatly increasing their chances of running into someone who’s infected.
Even if we ignore all those factors, saying everyone has a 6% chance of catching something each year, is wrong. The proper stat would be that 6% of the populace catches something each year, not that each member has a 6% chance. Details do matter.
That too! LOL!
Or a medical student class.
Letting some stranger stick his privates up your butt is dangerous? Who would have ever guessed?
Yep. Same here. During over 30 years of having unprotected sex with my wife, not only have I never contracted a single venereal disease but neither has she. Amazing but true.

Question: Why at a redneck picnic do the women not wear panties?
Answer: To keep the flies away from the fried chicken.
Far-left academics will never bother to study this medical miracle. When there is no possible logical explanation, the only alternative is random chance. Who does studies on pure luck?
