Do Tell: Do STI Rates Make You Reconsider One Night Stands?

Although most of you say you've never had a one night stand, 48 percent of you admitted to doing it at least once. Sure, one night stands have a negative stigma attached to them, but if you're safe and smart about it, I say to each her own. But as we all know, STIs are on the rise and condoms won't necessarily protect you 100 percent. So knowing what you know, and realizing that getting tested is the only way to know for sure if someone is clean, tell me, do you still have or consider having one night stands?

I still consider <a href"http://mysexystories.com/blog/2010/05/03/the-art-of-the-1-night-stand/"> 1 night stand</a> I had a check up on it, but doctor says its fine. Just always keep it clean.

Fallen, in response to your post, I'd like to take a quote from Grey's Anatomy, which I am currently obsessed with all over again.."There is a land called Passive-Aggressiva, and I am their queen";) :)

Are those the only options, prude or STI factory? No such thing as responsible sexual human beings, is there? No, I've never had a one night stand, and even we share the it's-not-for-me sentiment, we have nowhere near the same opinion on the subject.I'm not attacking you, princess, I'm attacking your very ancient mentality surrounding sex and the sexes.After all, the STI epidemic has everything to do with people being whores, and nothing to do with irresponsibility or lack of understanding of the risks, right? I mean, syphilis never existed 100 years ago, and genital warts were unheard of before the invention of the birth control pill. In the past, no one had sex outside of marriage, and certainly never engaged in risky behavior with multiple partners. I think we should go back to those days, don't you? That's the real answer to curing AIDS!Fun fact: Canadians on average have MORE sexual partners (and sex more often!) than Americans but LESS sexually transmitted diseases, infections and teen pregnancies. So there ends your logic. What are you going to do now?

hey, better a prude than an STI factory... and didn't you already say you'd never had a one night stand? why are you attacking me? I already said I did and it wasn't for me.

Right, because only bad nasty girls have sex on the first date.Speaking of women's issues, can you believe they let women vote these days?! Like wtf is that??

Not sure - I don't include myself in that number, since I had a boyfriend for the three years I've been here, and my current bf lives in London... I just know that my girlfriends who date complain that a guy can expect to get laid anytime he goes out here (whether it's with you or someone else) - I guess I hang out with the "nice" girls...

Yeah, because women are all so pure and virginal. Don't NY women have the highest number of sexual partners in the USA?

I don't consider them to begin with. I had one and it was the most loathesome and boring experience of my life. No thanks.

well i think that the more we hear about the rise in STIs the more you have to be cautious for yourself because those things are forever wehn just one night is just one night.

I wouldn't have sex with a man I just met unless I'm charging him and I have no desire to prostitute my body for money. So no, STDs or not, I wouldn't have a one night stand. I couldn't stand myself.

<blockquote>I dont see how "clean" is offensive. I could understand if Dear had actually referred to people with STIs as "dirty" but referring to the opposite as "clean" doesnt automatically mean people with STIs are "dirty."Maybe you're projecting?</blockquote>Oy! :notworthy: You're too good sometimes.Anyway, the herpes rate in Manhattan is 1:4, need i say more?Fine, i'm worth so much more. I'm no one's piece.

I wouldn't, it's just too risky. Especially because I live in RSA and uuuh well, we have the highest HIV stats in the world.
