Genital Herpes, by Christopher in Oregon

Guys,

When I got home from work today, I had a few comments awaiting me. One of them was this gem from Christopher in Oregon. It's about genital herpes, and I have to tell you, it's a motivator for staying celibate! Though I messed around some back in the day, it's been over two decades since I had sex. Luckily, STDs weren't as prevalent back then; I didn't catch anything, thank goodness. Having said that, it's only by the grace of God that I didn't knock someone up or catch something nasty. After reading something like this, I'm not sure I EVER want to have sex again! THIS is what you're risking if you have sex with an American woman...

-------------------

A while back a male friend of mine, who has Genital Herpes, was quite open about his suffering with this nasty, nasty disease. He was having a particularly painful outbreak, and told me just what it was like.

His outbreaks are usually about every 60-90 days, and they are nightmarishly painful. In the summer time, they can come every couple of weeks- one after another. He said that for the first few days during an outbreak, it feels like acid is being poured on his genitals. He can't sleep for days when he has an outbreak, and showering becomes an exercise in terror. There is no relief. Searing pain 24/7.

He gets outbreaks that appear anywhere on his scrotum, as well as penis. Many times it has extended to his buttocks, and sitting becomes an impossibility. Things like going to the toilet become all but impossible. He used to get constipated because of his inability to sit on the toilet, until he figured out if he just stood above the toilet and practiced being a dive bomber, he could go. Initially, his aim was often not accurate....

Sometimes he has herpes sores up his urethra, and once even inside his rectum. Too much exposure to sunlight triggers the worst outbreaks, so he dreads summer.

He spends hundreds of dollars on Valtrex most months, and has spent a small fortune on alternative treatments, with negligible results.

Every single thing he does during an outbreak is impacted by Herpes. The pain is so overwhelming, that it affects his career. He has no romantic life, because he feels like a leper. He's been snubbed too many times when he's been honest, and he refuses to lie to someone in order to get laid.

All because he slept with a woman who knew about her infection, but lied to him.

MOST women will contract Genital Herpes at some point. They are more than TWICE as likely to have herpes as men. Is this what you REALLY want to do to yourself? Is sex REALLY worth it? Do you really want to have to look at your tallywacker while it looks like a piece of raw ground beef?

Ick.

I think not.

Women aren't worth it. Pussy isn't worth it.

It's just a dirty, smelly, disease-riddled hole. That's it.

I thank God regularly for instilling in me a sense of morality that kept me from sleeping around and contracting such a disease.

I asked him one time if he had it to do all over again, would he remain celibate like I did? He said no. Unbelievable. In spite of what he's gone through, he still thinks it was worth it just to have sex. Unfuckingbelievable.

Keep it in mind.

Next week: Genital Warts

-------------------

What I found INCREDIBLE was that the guy would still have sex after what happened to him! Why would a guy do something like that, especially after it caused him so much pain?! Why would he do that? Try as I might, I cannot wrap my arms around that one. Anyway, to my boys reading this, stay single, celibate, happy, and free! Many American women are carrying nasty diseases such as Herpes. Is getting your rocks of worth it, Fellas? Until next time...

Regarding stats on genital herpes- something reliable that will make you think twice.
CDC most recent report on herpes:
"The study finds that women and blacks were most likely to be infected. HSV-2 prevalence was nearly twice as high among women (20.9 percent) than men (11.5 percent), and was more than three times higher among blacks (39.2 percent) than whites (12.3 percent). The most affected group was black women, with a prevalence rate of 48 percent." [reported in 2010]

Who do "MOST women" contract their Herpes from....I wonder?

CIO has a way of making his point. Good man. The only improvement would be to post medical images of the diseases.

I wonder how many men have actually seen what these diseases look like? One picture alone is enough to turn a man celibate.

Those annoying nightly news medicine commercials should be warning men about the dangers of women and their diseases instead of promoting Viagra.

It's strange. Movies and popular media always glorify the "excitement" of fornication but never show its nasty reality. Nobody seems to talk about.

Perhaps movie theaters do not want the added hassle of cleaning up popcorn vomit.

Thank you for telling us what we all need to be reminded of no matter how unpleasant.

You can literally save a man's life with a post like this.

You have been posting a number of valuable Basic Training Gems that all men should be required to read before being allowed to date.

Even for those of who have read this before, it serves as a memory refresher and helps us remain focused.

Keep it up!

Most American women likely contract their STDs (including all strains of herpes) from perverse homosexual behavior with each other.

OMG Howard....

I certainly hope you are being sarcastic. Otherwise I hope there is no progeny to spread your brand of uneducated stupidity.

There are so many variables which may be skewing the numbers quoted here. For instance, perhaps white men are the least likely people to get tested, show symptoms or report symptoms. Very often, herpes does not have any symptoms so many people do not know they have it or attribute mild symptoms to something else such as an ingrown hair or pimple. Also, the likelihood that a woman will present symptoms is much greater than the likelihood that a man will. I agree that celibacy outside of marriage is the way to go, but don't forget that someone could contract herpes from dental equipment and it can lay dormant for 20 years- well into a marriage. Also, although there is HSV 1 and 2, with 1 being prevelant in the mouth (cold sores) and 2 in the genital region, both can be transmitted to or from either region- so watch out for people with cold sores. If someone has it in the mouth, they may never know or- like many- don't think too much of it. If you are informed, you can choose to take risks or avoid them but no one can really be "safe" any more, even when celibate, whether a man or woman, single or married. One love people
