I have not been "lucky".
I have chosen well and kept my immune system healthy.
I reject your absurd statement that I have a "100% chance of catching one".
Are people truly this uneducated?
I could make an equally absurd statement that if you have sex regularly, regardless of if you choose protection, you will get an STD, 100%,
Why? Because both are mindless assumptions. Condoms are not a 100% protection. The only real protection is abstinence. We abstain and we die out as a

In a way, yes, I contradicted myself. Although the whole point was that genetics only might affect the likelyhood of you getting a STD, although they
would not make you immune.
Even when choosing your partners, the older you get, the less likelyhood there is they have not had previous partners. Considering how many people
have STD, it is likely that any of their previous partners has a STD history.
I said "multiple partners". I do not know how often you change your partner, although the more partners you have, eventually one of them is highly
likely to have STD.
I would change your sentence:
You said: I could make an equally absurd statement that if you have sex regularly, regardless of if you choose protection, you will get an STD, 100%,
eventually. That is absurd.
Instead: If you have sex regularly with multiple parthers, if you choose no protection, you will get an STD, 100% eventually. (You probably will never
get a STD if you sleep with one partner only, while knowing they do not have it, unless they are cheating)
Condoms protect on over 98%, especially if you use quality ones, not some cheap ones from a kiosk or vending machine. Farmacies usually keep them
under good conditions.
Also from another viewpoint. No protection can lead to unwanted kids, unless the girl is under pills. Best is both: Condom+pills.
You can easily calculate statistically, how much the odds grow with every new partner that they might have STD, considering that 1 in 3 has it.
For me, unprotected sex is like playing Russian Roulette.
