You've Got Mail....and an STD


abcnews.go.com

A public health Web site called Inspot.org has put the trend of e-cards, e-mail, and e-vites to a unique purpose: the e-postcard that notifies you that a past sexual partner came down with a sexually transmitted disease or infection.

The internet and it's wonderful ability to increase your number of sexual partners while minimizing the time of actual face-to-face interaction.

For those that can't be bothered to read the article, Inspot.org was started when its' founder noticed an increase in syphilis in San Francisco that could be traced back to an AOL chatroom, where users were apparently hooking up with one another. This inspired him to work with I.S.I.S. (Internet Sexuality Information Services) in building Inspot.Org, a website that will allow you to anonymously send emails to your past sexual partners, letting them know that you have an STD and that they might too.

On the one hand, this is a great tool for people that would otherwise not say anything at all. I would think that one of the biggest causes of the spread of STD's is due to the carriers ignorance to their medical status.

On the other hand, I think that this is another example of how our society is running low on our sense of responsibility. We are all aware of the consequences of unprotected and irresponsible sexual activity, but many pay it no mind. On top of that, if they do get burned (contract some disease), they can't even be bothered to wo/man-up and tell their sexual partner(s) the situation, face to face.

What a world we live in.
