Drugs, needles, feces, rats and STDs, oh my! STD cases hit 30-year high in California

From KTLA: Sexually transmitted diseases reached epidemic levels in California last year, with three STDs hitting their highest levels in the state in 30 years, according to a report released Tuesday.

For 2018, the California Department of Public Health saw an increased number of reported syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia cases. The number of cases also rose significantly from a decade ago.

Syphilis had the most dramatic spike over the 10-year period in terms of percentage; the 25,344 diagnoses represents a sharp rise of 265% from 2008, according to the report.

Chlamydia had the most cases last year with 232,181, up 56% over the past decade. And there were 79,397 cases of gonorrhea, 211% more than 10 years ago.

But what was particularly concerning for health officials was the number of congenital syphilis diagnoses which rose 14% from the previous year and increased for a sixth consecutive year. Since 2012, the number of infants diagnosed with the potentially lethal disease skyrocketed 900%.

There were 19 stillbirths or 3 neonatal deaths associated with congenital syphilis last year, according to the report. Thirty-one infants also had other symptoms or complications.

STD rates are rising all over California, in both men and women, the report found. But there are some disparities, with the highest number of cases reported among people between the ages of 15-24, African-Americans, and those who are gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with other men, according to the department.

“Underlying drivers of the increases of STDs relate to a complex web of social factors,” the report read. “Some people diagnosed with STD have experienced substance use, incarceration, the exchange of sex for money/housing/other resources, poverty, homelessness and disparities in access to care.”

Coachella Music Festival coincides with herpes spike

From TMZ: There was an unwanted guest running amok at Coachella this year … herpes.

According to honchos at HerpAlert — an online diagnosis and treatment website for the STD — there’s been a huge spike in folks looking to get treated for herpes in the communities surrounding the famous music festival.

HerpAlert’s been in business for 2 years now, with doctors issuing prescriptions to pharmacies after people submit photos of their, umm … situation, for medical pros to review. The turnaround time is blazing fast, it only takes about 2 hours.

We’re told the site has seen a massive surge in folks seeking prescriptions for herpes since Day 1 at Coachella. A whopping 1,105 cases have been reported in Indio, Palm Desert and Coachella Valley — and also L.A., Orange and San Diego counties where most of the concertgoers live.

HerpAlert tells us they typically handle 12 cases a day in Southern Cali … but during the first 2 days of Coachella, the site serviced almost 250 patients!!! The biggest previous spike was during Oscars weekend 2018, when they got a mere 60 cases a day.

Bottom line … what happens in Coachella might stay with you. For life.

College offers young people money to have sex on camera

Haven’t kids had enough sex education by college to know the benefits of using a condom?
Dog eyeroll
Via NY Post: A school in England is making some people hot under the collar — by offering to pay young couples to have sex on camera.
Coventry University is searching for volunteers ages 18 to 25 who are willing to be filmed making whoopee in “natural settings,” including inside a car, and be paid the equivalent of $488 to do so, according to UK media.
Filmmakers for the government-funded project called “Chance2Change” said it will promote the message that using a condom “does not kill the mood,” the Daily Mail reported.
Margaret Morrissey, chairman of a group called Parents Outloud, said students who sign up to appear in the videos may be “jeopardizing” their future. “They are offending the intelligence of their students by thinking they need educational videos such as this,” Morrissey told The Telegraph.
good-idea
“With the nature of the internet, these videos could stay in circulation for years. Any students taking part in them could jeopardize future employment prospects,” she said.
Project leader Dr. Katie Newby insisted the film will feature real couples in “loving, consensual relationships and be tastefully shot.”
More from Daily Mail:
Dr. Newby said: ‘The videos, which will be tastefully shot and feature genuine couples, are designed to be available to over-18s at the point at which they are requesting free STI self-testing kits from a website.
‘Other aspects of the intervention include allowing users to test out a range of different condoms to identify their preferred one, a condom ordering service, providing a free product for carrying condoms in, and other videos featuring young people talking about condom use.
‘We believe that someone who is seeking STI testing is likely to be particularly receptive to the messages around condom use, and we hope to convince them that condoms needn’t be awkward, embarrassing or an obstacle to enjoyable sex.’
Dr. Newby said that, despite the well-known risks of unprotected sex, the NHS still spends £620million per year treating sexually-transmitted illnesses.

Tinder adds health section after Aids charity put up billboards linking dating app to chlamydia and gonorrhea

Tinder is a location-based dating application (using  Facebook) that “facilitates communication between mutually interested users, allowing matched users to chat.” According to askmen.com it’s also a great way to enjoy a “regret-free hookup.” Apparently there is something else that Tinder is good for: obtaining a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
tinder
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) put pressure on Tinder bosses for them to add a “Health and Safety” section. AHF had put up billboards linking the dating app to chlamydia and gonorrhea as reported by on the Daily Mail.
Tinder has also added a ‘find your nearest STD clinic’ locator to its website. The new ‘Health Safety’ section of the Tinder website recommends users wear condoms and suggests asking potential partners when they were last checked for sexually transmitted diseases.
aids healthcare foundation billboard
The change followed a dispute between Tinder and the AHF, which refused to take down huge roadside signs suggesting the app was causing a surge in infections. The AHF originally refused to take down the adverts, which showed silhouettes of a man labeled ‘Tinder’ face-to-face with a woman labeled ‘chlamydia’. The huge roadside signs also showed a silhouette of a man labeled ‘Grindr’ – a gay dating app – facing a male silhouette labeled ‘gonorrhea’.
Despite facing legal action from Tinder, the HIV/Aids advocacy group said it would only consider taking the billboards down once a health section was added to the Tinder website. This past week the AHF welcomed the move and is now set to remove the adverts. It said it will continue to encourage other dating apps and websites to add a health section.
AHF senior director Whitney Engeran-Cordova said, “The CDC recently reported that sexually transmitted diseases increased dramatically in 2014. We are unfortunately now waging an uphill battle on this front. The CDC also noted, the majority of these infections are affecting young people – the demographic that is on their mobile phones all day long.  This is why it is such welcome news that Tinder will add a Health Safety section with a link to Healthvana, making it easier for people to find testing locations through an easily accessible, modern platform. And we hope to see other dating sites do the same.”
The row between the AHF and Tinder erupted as medical experts warned the surge in popularity of dating and casual sex apps was fueling a rise in sexually transmitted infections.
Dr. Peter Greenhouse, of the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV, said the apps could trigger an ‘explosion’ of HIV in heterosexual people.  Speaking to BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat in November, he said: “You are able to turn over partners more quickly with a dating app and the quicker you change partners, the more likely you are to get infections. What really worries me is that we are just at a tipping point for HIV. If enough people change partners quickly, and they’ve got other untreated sexually transmitted infections, it might just start an explosion of HIV in the heterosexual population. Apps could do that.”
Experts also warned that apps such as Tinder have made casual sex as available as ordering takeout. “Mobile dating apps are rapidly altering the sexual landscape by making casual sex as easily available as ordering a pizza,” The’s AHF’s Whitney Engeran-Cordova said last year.
Dr. Jessica Carbino, from Tinder, said: “An important aspect of any healthy relationship – whether formed on Tinder or otherwise – is ensuring sexual health and safety.  We’d be delighted to see other major social networks follow in our footsteps in educating the public.”

US Army wastes taxpayers' money on bizarre sex training

It’s deja vu all over again.
Once again, the POS and Congress are at an impasse over budget cuts. If no agreement is reached — and the deadline to reach an agreement is already past — $1.2 trillion cuts will automatically result from sequestration, half of which will come from defense spending.
Sequestration is a procedure in U.S. law which limits the size of the federal budget by setting a hard cap on the amount of government spending within broadly-defined categories.
Given that, it really doesn’t help the military that the U.S. Army spent precious taxpayer dollars on a bizarre “sex training” at the Schofield Barracks in Oahu, Hawaii, on last Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

Chelsea Schilling reports for WND on an eyewitness’ account of the event that ostensibly was about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and how to avoid getting them, but instead involved male and female soldiers being offered prizes in a race to put condoms on sex toys.
The source, who asked to remain nameless due to the nature of the source’s job, said the training was attended by hundreds of soldiers and Defense Department civilians and contractors, their ages ranging from late teens to early 70s, with a median age of around 30. Half of the attendees were women. The highest-ranking officer at the event was a lieutenant colonel.
The training event began with a presentation on substance abuse and prevention of STDs. As recounted by the source:
“Once the slideshow was complete, the instructors asked for four volunteers. From those who raised their hands, they selected two male and two female soldiers. The instructors split them into two groups with a male and female in each and had them walk up on stage.
Two small tables covered with blankets had been on the stage throughout the presentation. The soldiers were told to remove the blankets from the tables. They did, exposing erect male penis devices lit-up and sitting on each table.”
What occurred next was 15 minutes of contests to place condoms on [the penis devices]. The two men went first followed by the two women. It was done a second time with goggles on to simulate performing this while intoxicated. Then a third contest was conducted to see who could perform this task the fastest.Worse yet, people in the audience were filming this event with cameras and cell phones. At the end as contest prizes were awarded, personnel would intentionally pose with their gifts in front of the display tables with the erect penises prominently displayed. The briefing went on for several more minutes while everything on the tables was left exposed in front of the audience.”
The source provided this blurry photo of the penises captured with a cell phone.

When the penises were revealed, the source said many people in the crowd became visibly uneasy: “No one laughed or made any sound. People across the auditorium became uncomfortable, especially the DoD civilian women. They expressed the most disgust for the entire event. Many soldiers and civilians commented that the training presentation was inappropriate, embarrassing and disappointing. When it kept dragging on, soldiers began looking around the auditorium to see if someone would end the training. Many of the young soldiers knew this training event was out of line, but as they looked across the auditorium at their unit leaders and commanders, no one spoke up.”
When questioned, the presenters “defended the sexual demonstration as a standard way to present the STD training and that this was an annual training requirement.”
The Army typically requires new and deploying soldiers to receive training on prevention of STDs, including photos and basic facts about symptoms. However, sex toys and condom races are not a normal part of that training.
WND contacted a spokeswoman identifying herself as “Stephanie at the public affairs office at Schofield Barracks,” asking why the soldiers’ training involved a contest to put condoms on penises. But “Stephanie” never provided a comment on the incident, only saying that “I’m going to have to track down the details and see what happened and why whatever happened happened. Let me try and track it down so I can get you an answer on that.”
This bizarre “training” using sex toys of erect penises made many in the audience, especially females, visibly uncomfortable. As such, the training can be interpreted to be sexual harassment in the workplace.
The training was also a total waste of hardworking taxpayers’ money because I seriously doubt that there is even one person in that training event who doesn’t know about condoms or how to put one on a penis.
Concerned individuals may contact the U.S. Army Pacific Inspector General at (808)438-2811 or the Department of Defense Inspector General at 1-800-424-9098 or by emailing hotline@dodig.mil.

Harvard University will have an Incest-fest

We warned you that legalizing same-sex marriage will have a slippery-slope effect. Practitioners and proponents will seek to normalize, if not legalize, other social taboos such as polygamy, incest, bestiality, and pedophilia.

And it’s all happening:

Here’s more evidence: The elite Harvard University, Obama’s alma mater, will have a debaucherous hookup dance called “Incest-Fest” this winter.

The word “hookup” (also called ”booty calls” or “friends with benefits”) refers to an increasingly common practice among America’s youth, especially on college campuses, of sexual intercourse without emotional commitment or even a preliminary pretense of a date. Stripped of its urban slang patina, hookups really are just casual sex — what used to be called “one night stands” — which is just another word for promiscuity.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the highest prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is among the young: “Estimates suggest that even though young people aged 15–24 years represent only 25% of the sexually experienced population, they acquire nearly half of all new STDs.”

Harvard U’s Kirkland House

Oliver Darcy reports for CampusReform.org, Oct. 10, 2012:

At least one student at Harvard University is expressing outrage over the name of “Incest-Fest,” a hook-up dance to be held at the university’s famous Kirkland House dormitory this winter.

The event, described in the Kirkland House Wikipedia entry, is an annual  “debaucherous dance open only to [male and female] members of the house.”

Harvard’s official student newspaper, The Crimson, also mentions the event in it campus life guide. “You’ll spend all of Secret Santa week watching underclad men gyrating in the dining hall and figuring out who you’ll hook up with at Incest Fest,” it reads. “[H]ouse life is incredibly close-knit, bordering on downright incestuous. But there’s more to Kirkland than raunchy dining hall skits and regrettable hook-ups,” the paper continues.

Junior Samantha Berstler, who is a resident in the Kirkland House however, argued in an op-ed in the The Crimson, that the party’s name is “offensive and insensitive”  because incest is no joking matter. “The name ‘Incest-Fest’ is not sexy or cute or clever,” wrote Berstle.

Other students commenting responded to Bestle’s criticism, however, suggesting she should lighten up. “Don’t go and let other people have a sick time getting laid,” wrote an apparent student, Marcus Bunny.

A spokesperson for Harvard University did not provide comment to Campus Reform, despite multiple inquiries via phone and e-mail.

Famous former residents of the Kirkland dorm include Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

1 of 5 Young Americans Engage in Anal Sex

The human body is not designed to accommodate anal intercourse.
Whereas the vagina has natural lubricants and is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal.
Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic. Moreover, the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids.
Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive, designed to allow the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. The fragility of the anus and rectum, along with the immunosuppressive effect of ejaculate, make anal-genital intercourse a most efficient manner of transmitting HIV and a whole host of other infections. [For a list of the diseases, go here.]

A real place in France, but pronounced "on-new". LOL


Despite the health hazards of anal sex, Reuters reports, March 3, 2011, that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in 2006-2008, 21% of U.S. young men and 20% of young women said they have had anal sex.
The report did find that the number of U.S. teenagers and young adults who say they are abstaining from sex has slightly increased. Among Americans ages 15 to 24, 29% of women and 27% of men reported not having any sexual contact compared with 22% in 2002.
At the same time, however, more young women report having sexual contact with each other. The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics found a growing number of young women who said they have had some form of sex with another woman, rising to 13% in the latest survey, from about 12% in the 2002 survey. In contrast to the number of young men reporting same-sex encounters falling from 5% to 4% over the same time period.

Although more young Americans are abstaining from sex, there is an overall increase in reports of the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia, especially among 15 to 19-year-olds. The bacterial infection is the most common STD in the United States and can lead to complications if untreated. Some people have no symptoms, making it easier to spread.

Of youth aged 15 to 24 who said they have had sex, nearly 63% of women and 64% of men had oral sex compared to nearly 69 percent in 2002.
The CDC’s findings for 2006 to 2008 are based on interviews with about 13,500 men and women ages 15 to 44. Overall, it found few changes in the nation’s sexual patterns compared to CDC’s last survey in 2002.

California Law Lets 12-Yr-Olds Get STD Vaccines w/out Parental Knowledge


Nos. 40 and 41 of the “45 Communist Goals for America” that was entered into the Congressional Record on January 10, 1963, are:

Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce” and “Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.”

Last Sunday, October 9, 2011, in the name of preventative medical care, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that does just that.
Assembly Bill 499 allows a minor who is 12 years of age or older to consent to medical care related to the prevention of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) — such as vaccines for HPV, HIV and hepatitis — without parental consent or knowledge.
The bill was introduced by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins and co-authored by Assemblywoman Fiona Ma — both Democrats.
Ten other states and the District of Columbia have similar laws allowing such “preventative care” for minors without parental consent.
Critics of the law and advocates for parent’s rights have spoken out against the measure, but to no avail.  President of SaveCalifornia.com, Randy Thomasson said, “[Governor] Brown has no excuse to deny patients essential information and trample parents’ consent for their children, who lack the brain development to make big decisions like this.  It is unfair and wrong for AB 499 to coerce children behind their parents’ backs, when calling or emailing a child’s mother or father to set an appointment is the respectful way to communicate vital information and answer important questions.”
As blogger Giacomo notes:

“In the United States, parents have a legal obligation to care for and provide for all minor age children.  If a minor causes damage to someone else’s property, the parents are legally responsible for restitution.  In most states, a parent cannot evict a child under the age of 18; 16 in some states.  In cases of divorce and child support, one of the parents are generally liable to pay monthly child support to the other until the child reaches 18 and in some states graduate from high school.

Yet when it comes to one of the most personal, moral and religious subjects of sexually promiscuity, parents have absolutely no rights to know or control their minor child’s activities. It’s because of the need of the liberal socialists to undermine and erode both religious and family values of a people in order to set up a socialist government.

What’s even more scary is that these laws coincide with similar laws being pushed by the United Nations to give complete sexual freedom to all children down to the age of 10 to 12.”

By the way, you’d be interested to know that:

  • No. 11 of the “45 Communist Goals for America” is “Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces”;
  • No. 15 is “Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.”
  • No. 17 is “Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum.”
  • No. 20 is “Infiltrate the press.”
  • No. 26 is “Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
  • No. 28 is “Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  • No. 29 is “Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.”

I can go on, but you get the picture….

Sick, Sick, Sick

While wandering on the web this morning looking for news to post on FOTM, I came across a truly sickening device.
First, a warning:

There’s a sex toy called a butt plug, designed to be inserted in the anus and rectum. In some ways, they are similar to a dildo, but they tend to be shorter, and must have a flanged end to prevent the device from being lost inside the rectum.
This butt plug was first posted on LsGraulau, Jan. 21, 2011. Since then, it’s been re-published on many sites. Cracked.com confirms it’s real.

While there are heterosexuals who engage in anal sex, they are fewer in numbers compared to homosexuals.
A 2007 national survey found that 34% men and 30% women in the U.S. reported ever participating in heterosexual anal sex. The percentage was significantly higher among 20- to 24-year-olds and peaked among 30- to 34-year-olds. The percentage of heterosexuals engaged in anal sex has been rising in recent years. A survey in 1992 found only 20% of heteros had participated in that dangerous act.
Although some lesbians practice anal sex, many more gay men do. The 1994 Laumann study found that 80% of gay men practice anal sex and 20% never engage in it at all.
The plain truth is this:
The human body is not designed to accommodate anal intercourse.
The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In contrast, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic. Moreover, the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids. [For more on the hazards of anal sex and the diseases for which practitioners are vulnerable, go here.]
And if you still harbor doubts as to how hateful the Left are, just remember the Baby Jesus Butt Plug.
Our Lord must be weeping….
You’ll need a palate cleanser after this, go here.
