I wonder what it is about condoms that drive perfectly reasonable people to take risks with their lives rather, than wear them?

Check out some of these stats:


In my younger days,I can honestly say that I never once had sexual intercourse, without my partner being suited and booted. I had a couple of partners (not at the same time of course) who would have preferred to go skin to skin, but here’s the thing, I liked the fact that bits of my skin were still intact. I wasn’t overly fond of the idea that my genitalia could be covered in warts or spots. I didn’t particularly want to go round scratching my nether regions in public, or checking for funky smells emanating from between my legs.

I certainly didn’t like the thought of lesions marring my otherwise, perfectly cleansed, toned, and moisturised face. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus was certainly something that I could have lived without.

I have to have a Smear test, once every couple of years to check that everything’s ok with my womanly bits, but quite frankly, every time I go, I feel violated.
I loathe these very necessary procedures, so you see, there’s no way I would have risked catching something, because then I would have had to let those bastards prod my privates in an effort to try to figure out which brand of herpes I happened to be afflicted with.

I wonder what kind of sex education our youngsters are getting when their biggest concern is getting pregnant. Unplanned pregnancy can be bad, especially if you’re too young to cope, but I kinda figure that getting the big A is much worse.

If you’re going to indulge in a one night stand, why not take precautions?

For me it’s really simple, as a woman, because men generally let their little heads do the thinking in these scenarios if you respect your body, and yourself, then you’ll make sure that you are well protected. Never assume that this is the man’s responsibility. That’s a sure way of guaranteeing that you catch something undesirable.

By the way, call me naïve, but I didn’t realise that crabs could live in your armpit hair. It’s just as well I get mine waxed off as soon as they even look as if they’re gonna grow. Shudder.

    Damn you Karen, you knew my nosey ass would look regardless. Uh, so much for that sex scene I was about to write.

    This makes me so glad to be in a momogamous relationship.

    Why… why?

    I feel like taking out my brain and soaking it in bleach just to get rid of these images.

    You’re such a bitch, Karen.

    Karen,

    That has got to be the most awful, disgusting, gross, vomit induced, picture I have ever seen in my life.

    I feel sick…I feel sick.

    ROFL, I will keep myself from calling you names, but seriously, when my morning sickness kicks in, I KNOW these pictures are going to come to mind and make it worse.

    And I’m never showing these to my hubby. His nuts wouldn’t work right for a month looking at those! LOL!

    Sweet Jesus! I will never disregard a warning from Karen Scott again. Amen. I was able to cover the screen in time enough not to see everything. Until this moment I honestly didn’t know that anything beyond rodents and dirty bathrooms could get to me like this. What the hell was that stuff? Was it lab created? Surely those aren’t the results of STD’s? I’m actually trembling inside.

    Yuck. That really was nasty. And there’s no cure.

    I wouldn’t touch that nasty flesh w/ condoms, bleach and someone else’s vagina.

    Everyone should see these photos. They should show them in sex ed class. Do they have these type of classes anymore? I don’t think so.

    Okay, I came back here directly at the comments, no pictures and STILL got damn near sick enough to blame Karen for some cookie tossing.

    ROFL @ someone else’s vagina.

    You mean, those guys walk around with those all the TIME?? Oh, shit, NOW I’m going to throw up!

    As a nurse, I’ve actually seen some of this in person. Blech! I once had a patient covered in gonorrhea after he had sex with an infected female. It was everwhere. You knew exactly what he was doing and what was stuck where.

    aw man and I was just feeling better from a bout of food poisoning. Gross. Thankfully my high school did teach sex ED and I learned young to remember my condoms for any date.
