As much as this is disgusting but it doesn't surprise me one bit. Thanks for the figures because now I can use them on my daughters even though I'm in Australia. I wouldn't be surprised if we are close to that also.

Sounds like B.S. to me. I have had a lot of unprotected sex with a lot of people and have never encountered someone with an STD.

When I found out I was going to be a parent I went and got myself checked out and turns out I'm clean so chances are no one that I slept with had an std and didnt tell me.

Google blue waffle virus. That's gotta be the surest way to turn someone off.
Maybe I shouldn't have suggested it as I feel ill again...

Oh, God!!! My eyes! My eyes!!!
That's terrible, but I still couldn't find anything stating that it was absolutely a real STD. Some sources state that it may be an urban legend, while some say it may be caused by a number of things such as underwear being too tight to vaginal deodorant sprays.
So, the jury's still out... and blind.

But you gotta love a good urban legend..

There is no way that the minge I saw was a result of tight knickers.

I think it must be untreated stds. Though there are some other pics just as awful.

Have you ever seen those genital wart ones?
They make me wanna hurl.

Dark. ..urban legend or not. There's plenty of pics attributed to it. Something is out there making a mess of people's fun parts.

Here's yet another reason to cover it up. Some people have been exposed due to medical/dental negligence and have no idea that they've been exposed. I feel really bad for the married couples who thought all was good.

TULSA, Okla. —

Health officials on Thursday urged an Oklahoma oral surgeon's patients to undergo hepatitis and HIV testing, saying filthy conditions behind his office's spiffy facade posed a threat to his 7,000 clients and made him a "menace to the public health."

Yes. I've looked at several photos of various types of STDs. None of them are pretty. Nature sure has a way of making things look just as bad as they really are.
Now, I'm going to try to eat dinner...

Thats nothing... I have frozen no-gluten blueberry waffles in the freezer...



I was telling about this last year in chat.. kids were having a facebook fight and "blue waffle" was brought up.. as one kid accused the other of having Blue Waffle Disease. I had never heard of it. Wanting to be informed as I was keeping an eye on these kids, I looked it up... and yeah, saw that. Good grief!

The social stigma behind STIs is usually worse than the disease itself.

Let's take Herpes for example. It's an irritating rash. That's it. But what people with it have to deal with society is terrible. The stigma of Herpes is way worse than any amount of itching. I'm glad I don't have it, but mostly because of the social stigma.

Viewing people with STIs as bad people is stupid. And it's a rampant and widespread behavior, just look at this thread.

an irritating rash??!! Giving out incorrect info is pretty stupid. This is why the kids I deal with dont know squat.. listen to people who have NO idea.. or who do and minimize it.
HSV2 can be carried by an asymptomatic carrier.. youll never know unless you are either tested or have an outbreak yourself.
It manifests in open sores, flu symptoms, other skin conditions.. you have to schedule sex around outbreaks or you infect your partner. Guess what happens when those open sores get infected and they wind up in the ER. People can and do get staph infections from herpes sores not being kept clean or being exposed to bacteria from fecal material. HSV can cause meningitis, encephalitis, viral infections of the liver, lungs, joints... not to mention people having oral sex with those who are infected... ever seen a person with numerous open sores around and inside the mouth? And in the nose and eyes?? It survives in mucus.. and ANY mucus membrane can be infected by "genital herpes".. HSV2. Ever seen genital herpes occluding the anus so badly that a person cant have a bowel movement? The pain is incredible for them. Ive seen women scheduled mid 2nd stage labor for an emergency c section due to hsv2. It can not only blind, but kill a newborn. I have seen all of these and more as I worked a decade in an ER... but hey, its just a little rash.
This doesnt magically go away when you are elderly.. the elderly are particularly at risk when they were infected when younger to serious complications as they age.

Holy crap!!! That is scary, im not taking any chances Im going to use a condom and wear a latex glove on my left hand


joking aside, 1 in 3 has a STD that means within the last few years about 10 of girls had something

And I was stupid, most of the time If they were on birth control I didnt wear a condom and if she was a clean person I would go down on them(oral sex). I was playing Russian roulette and dodged the bullet, my last check was 2months ago i'm totally clean.

Maybe its because most of the girls were military and they check us about every 6months, who knows but I know im gonna try to be less reckless

I dunno about that ... HIV can kill you ... HPV can give you cancer ... others can make you sterile .... that's all pretty serious stuff.

Not 'bad people' ... just reckless and stupid. Considering how easy it is to get a condom and to use it .. there really is no excuse for huge STD numbers like this. Once in a while something could slip through ... but numbers this big mean that people are being sloppy and careless. That is a financial drain on us all ...

1 - that's irresponsible.
2 - 'never encountered an STD' .. that you know of
3 - Its attitudes like this that are the reason why there are so many illegitimate children living off welfare in the USA and who are being raised in single parent homes.

Another article about this situation.

This quote here says it all and sums up this thread quite well:

"The office looked clean," said Joyce Baylor, who had a tooth pulled at Harrington's Tulsa office 1½ years ago. In an interview, Baylor, 69, said she'll be tested next week to determine whether she contracted any infection.

"The office looked clean." Yep. How many potential sex partners "look clean"?
I hope all is well with the patients involved. Such a sad situation.

the social stigma behind a natural biological instinct is what causes all the problems you are whining about.

These stats are nothing more than fear porn to keep the plebs from reproducing
