The Safest Sex

A three-page spread in our newspaper yesterday about the resurgence in the spread of Syphilis. This is an especially insidious disease.

"Syphilis is a highly contagious disease spread primarily by sexual activity, including oral and anal sex. It develops in stages, and symptoms vary with each stage.
The first stage involves a painless sore on the genitals, rectum, or mouth. After the initial sore heals, the second stage is characterized by a rash. Then, there are no symptoms until the final stage which may occur years later. This final stage can result in damage to the brain, nerves, eyes, or heart." [text bolding is mine]

Knowledge of this, and other STIs, has never been a deterrent; people are people and complete abstinence is rare. And, it would appear the Free Love generation is at it again - rates of this (and other STIs) are rampant among those 55+. Sites out there have been designed especially for them, including chat rooms like Granny Chat and Granny Cam for a safer alternative.
Because - whether you use porn or your own imagination to fantasize - masturbation is still the safest sex there is. Alone,

or with others.

That said, have a really wonderful weekend, and welcome to September.

There has been an increase in HIV among young guys here in Australia too recently. Great post as always! Have a good weekend and enjoy September. Hoping our days start to warm up soon!

There are also mother-to-child transmissions of syphilis, and it affects between 700,000 and 1.6 million pregnancies a year.
We can catch this disease even in case of complete abstinence, for example just by sitting down on infected toilets seats, and we can transmit it without knowing that we are infected during the first stage while it remains painless.
A blood test is then the only way to have a clear mind about it, and one time by year is not too much especially for the homosexuals and bisexuals who are totaling 75% of the cases.
You are right it can result in damage to the brain, nerves, eyes, or heart, but it is not the final stage, the real final stage is an abominable, painful and disgusting death for hundreds of thousands of people every year in the world.
Fortunately, thanks to the Obama Care many people too poor to pay for healthcare (syphilis or other contagious diseases), can now make it and thus avoid contaminating the healthy persons.
Or am I wrong?
I don't dare to add LOL.
Masturbation is still the safest sex there is if it's alone, but if it's with the help of the hands of others, we should use condoms(which do not protect only from the AIDS).

After all these good news, I can only leave you, my darlings Jean and Pat, by wishing you a wondrous weekend with lots of bisous.

Too many humans insist on repeating history.

I wrote "a disgusting death" because before the discovery of the penicillin, the body of the sick persons were in a state of putrefaction before their death.
Now we can be cured, but the injection of the penicillin with a syringe the needle of which we push in the urethra very aches.

Another reason to enjoy masterbation! Happy September!
