To the sexually active members of DDO, how often do you undergo STD Testing? Is it a regular thing for you or have you never taken such a test?

If a person has multiple sex partners or engages in anal sex then the risk of contracting STDs is fairly high. There is a disproportionately large number of gay men on DDO so this is something which should be addressed. Some of these viruses, such as Herpes, are harmless. Then there are viruses such as HIV, a disease which afflicts over 1 million Americans currently. A person can live a fairly long and healthy life even with HIV/AIDS provided that treatment begins in the early stages. To ensure that you catch any such disease in the early stage you should get yourself tested for STDs fairly often (the CDC recommends once every 3-6 months). It could save your life and it could prevent you from unknowingly passing on the virus to others.

So please...make sure to get yourself tested for sexually transmitted diseases. Places that offer free STD testing are likely in your area if you know where to look. Even if it costs you to get such testing it could save your life, which in anyone's book should be considered worth it.

Was this supposed to be a comment made in jest about DDOers being nerds who have no sex life?

If you are active on DDO for any reason other than the social aspect or a school/work related reason then you are a nerd.

So far I've had about 100, and they all came back positive.

But I went and had sex each time after, so it's okayyyyyyy.

Maybe a guy will transfer a type of anti STD virus into your body. You just have to keep having sex, until you get the guy carrying the anti-STD virus

Hmm...it's voluntary, they should wear a condom instead of giving me all the responsibilities.

Can a deliberate attempt of STD transmission be considered an act of bioterrorism?

I don't know about bioterrorism, but depending on the STD, you can both be arrested and go to jail for intentionally transmitting some STD's, and you also risk civil liability (i.e. getting sued by someone else) for doing that as well.

Funny story - I woke up one morning after hooking up with a girl and found a small red rash on my lil Blade. I immediately went to the college campus health center and got tested. When I went in the for the results the doctor told me I was clear of everything, so I asked him how this rash could have happened and what it was. He proceeded to ask me if I wear underwear, which I don't because I hate underwear, and then asked if I wear jeans. Obviously I do. Apparently, the rash was due to me not wearing underwear with jeans - the backside of the zipper crease must have irritated my skin.

Needless to say, I was relieved. I also have learned my lesson, and now rock boxer-briefs when wearing jeans.

Seriously, though. Don't sleep around, never worry about STDs (or STIs as they like to call them now).

Yeah, but we both know most DDOers do so anyway. Might as well remind people about the need for STD Testing.
A sexually transmitted infection is not the same thing as a sexually transmitted disease, is it?

I'd rather tell them that the only way to prevent STDs is chastity. And I don't believe that young people are unable to live this out.

A sexually transmitted infection is not the same thing as a sexually transmitted disease, is it?

Yes it is. They changed what they call it because they refer to disease as things like heart disease, whereas something like gonorrhea is an infection.

I assumed an STI was when your genitals got an infection during sex whereas an STD was when you catch something like Herpes, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, or HIV.

Listen, I know you have benevolent intentions in making this PSA, but don't you think this is too personal?
