AIDS Group Files Complaint Against Larry Flynt Over Condom-less Porn

AIDS activists have filed a workplace safety complaint against Hustler honcho Larry Flynt over the amount of condom-less sex in all of his skin flicks. On Thursday, activists descended upon Los Angeles’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health office with 100 DVDs to show that only one scene in one porno showed a performer using a condom. Condoms, of course, help protect against the spread of HIV. Keep reading »

Getting A Disease Has Never Been Cuter

Getting a disease or sickness has never been something that anyone looked forward to, but now you just might. These giant plush microbes are stuffed animals of diseases like syphilis, herpes, anthrax, and mad cow, which are only some of the many different stuffed diseases that are available. Giving someone herpes or the kissing disease doesn’t have to be such a bad thing now, after all it’s cute, fuzzy and comfortable to sleep with. These stuffed toys come in all different cells, diseases, and viruses, and while they make a great gag gift for a friend, they can even be a great get-well gift too. Now when you tell your friend “I’m sorry you have the flu,” you can give them the stuffed animal that goes along with it too. Happy sneezes! [ThinkGeek] Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore” House Is STD Central


For all those folks out there who like to “Gym, Tan, Laundry,” the highlight of last night’s MTV Movie Awards actually came during the pre-show, where viewers were treated to the first 10 minutes of “Jersey Shore” season two. In the clip, the cast members begin the road trip to Miami—Pauly D and the Situation get their car stuck in the mud while setting off fireworks and J-Woww and Snooki get hit on by a clueless South Carolina boy. The clip was actually pretty cute, and a good reminder that this crew is fascinating even when they’re not trashed and hooking up in hot tubs. Speaking of, one of the most common questions I heard after the first season of the show was, “How do they not get STDs?” Well, apparently, they do. All the time. Keep reading »

Gardasil’s Scare Tactic Ads Do More Harm Than Good, One Woman Says

Lux Alptraum has written an intriguing piece for Jezebel, “The HPV Vaccine’s Misguided Scare Tactics.” Alptraum argues that Merck, which manufactures Gardasil, the HPV vaccine, uses scare tactics in its commercials to push women to get the HPV vaccine, thereby driving more money into Merck’s deep pockets. One commercial features an animated woman going to the gynecologist for her annual pap smear and finding out she has full-blown cervical cancer. The music is grim. The tone is doomed. An alarmist vibe permeates the tale. In fact, Alptraum says, women who get annual pap smears are highly unlikely to develop cervical cancer, if HPV is caught early. In addition, the woman in the ad is white, while the fastest growing group of women getting diagnosed with cervical cancer is Hispanic women. Alptraum isn’t against Gardasil; she got it. But we agree that terrifying women is no way to get them to pursue good gynecological health practices. Watch the ad, read the story, and decide for yourself. [Jezebel] Keep reading »

Sex With Susannah: “He Rejected Me Because I Have Herpes”

I met the most amazing man four months ago. We recently started to date, and I realized there was no doubt in my mind he is the one. Last night I opened up to him as things got steamy, and he went for a condom. I told him my ex gave me herpes, and we should never have sex without a condom. He froze, put his shirt back on, and told me to leave. I have never been more devastated. I was apprehensive about telling him, but my friends and family assured me that if he cared about me like he really said, he would work around it. I truly love this man and would totally understand if he stopped talking to me completely. All I care about is his happiness and safety. But this whole ordeal has made me think that I will have to settle for someone who will have to settle with me and my disease. Like the true love I feel for this man will never be mine completely or will be ignored because of this horrible infection I have. My self-worth has diminished to nothing, and I fear I will never be able to love or be loved. Please … help. – The Love Struck Statistic

Husband Injects Wife With HIV To Get Laid

Of all the crazy schemes men use to get laid, this one has got to rank at the most vile. That’s both saying a lot and putting this catastrophe mildly.

According to a report at The Huffington Post, a 35-year-old HIV-positive man in New Zealand injected his sleeping HIV-negative wife with the virus so she’d pony up and have sex with him. Keep reading »
