Casual Sex Warning

Paying for casual sex is much higher than many think. Now more than 110 million American men and women are currently infected with one or more sexually transmitted infections. Annually, new infections are at the highest levels ever: 20 million new cases.

In American dollars, this translates to a lifetime treatment cost of $16 billion—EACH YEAR. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention focused on the eight most challenging ones:  Chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B virus (HBV) herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), HIV, human papillomavrius (HPV), syphilis, and trichomoniasis.

There are not easy cures and some are incurable. Not good news for those in the 15-24 age group that constitutes the largest group getting infected. Some of these are contracted through skin-to-skin contact, meaning that actual sex isn’t required. More bad news for those erroneously thinking they’re having “safe sex”.

While just as many young men are infected as women, it’s the women who bear the greater health consequences—such as cervical cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, and infertility. Just when young people have reached independence, sadly many of them will face lifelong diseases that make them dependent on drugs and potentially alter their future in ways they never expected when they hopped in the sack.

A decade ago, when I first began sharing STD reality on http://waitformarriage.com the stats were alarming, but lower. The upward trend is not our friend. It could very well be our demise. Some will pay attention—and for those who simply don’t care, I sense someday you will.
