xanadude said[quote][cite]gymguy1 said[/cite]This is scary. I have a friend that had the warts. He said that his doctor said it was "the gay man's disease"...meaning it was typical in the gay community. The more partners you have the greater the risk....that is why im with only one person.
Sorry, but this statement stigmatizes people who have been infected HPV -- it's like saying ALL people with HIV have been promiscuous and/or irresponsible. All it takes is ONE time with ONE infected person -- someone who may themselves not be "promiscuous" (which in my way of thinking just means they have sex with one more person than you do) or "irresponsible". All that it means is that someone is passing their bad luck on to you.
Up until recently, most men were unaware of the danger, and therefore weren't bothering to take precautions agains this. Truth is, HPV is something a condom MAY NOT protect you from (due to the way it is spread). So thinking that you're safe from it because you are with one person is at best -- as it is with all monogamous couples, gay or straight -- a hope or an educated guess. A higher chance you are protected (so long as the person isn't already infected OR that one of you doesn't stray), but it's still just a hope.[/quote]
If everyone was "Responsible" and the select few only caught it by "accident", why in the world is it still so wide spread?
Resposible gay guys might just be a minority...
Muchmore, there are plenty of other ways to get off with another guy with another guy. You could 69, frot ( full body naked hug), or mutually masterbate. You could figure out other ways for yourself. The important thing is to stop behaviors where infection is now, as that article pointed out, startlingly easy to get.
When the cons finally out weigh the pros, sexual behavior on a whole will change.
ALSO!!! I'm a young guy and I've never have any type of sex. So I don't really understand the genesis concept of STDs. If everyone is born clean, how in the world are they supposed to get infected? Assuming they only mate with people in their generation? @_@
Asked that when I was a kid in school and the Abstainance speaker was at a loss for words... -_-
