The number of males is lower because they don't show most of the symptoms. They may have the std, but they don't have the warts.

Does HPV (the #1 STD) cause any symptoms at all in males?

[quickly ask Wiki....]
Why yes, some varieties do cause symptoms in men, but many do not...

Absolutely frightening!  I used to work for Planned Parenthood, and the statistics were poor then.  That was in 1996.  I believe that it used to be 1 in 10, and that was not too long ago.

The number of males is lower because they don't show most of the symptoms. They may have the std, but they don't have the warts.

But this isn't about showing symptoms, this is about a disease showing up in tests! Chlamydia for example is a disease that doesn't show many symptoms in both men and women and it is still the fastest growing std I believe, because of the lack of symptoms. By the time a lot of women discover they have chlamydia, it can already have destroyed their reproductive system.

If they don't show the symptoms, they aren't going to be tested and they aren't going to show up on the statistic. Women not only show the symptoms, but get tested every year.
So yeah, it's about showing symptoms.

I interpreted the article as meaning that research consisting of testing a target group of girls, representative for the entire population, has shown that 1 in 4 girls have an std, whether they have been tested and aware of the problem, or not. I believe the genital warts virus can lie dormant too for a while, before becoming active. For instance.

So the actual problem is even bigger than 1 in 4?

Wow, I hope not. I once gave oral to a girl who had chlamydia. I was not at all aware that she had it until she found out herself, and then told me. She got it from an ex who told her that he was clean. Unfortunately, said girl has never been the brightest bulb in the box, and keeps making bad relationship decisions, which she tells me about when contacts me once or twice a year online.

Despite the fact that this happened a few years ago, and I have no symptoms, I really think that I should get tested.

Well, it'll be a little harder for people to pretend that teenage girls aren't having sex when they ALL HAVE STDS.

Maybe. If our school systems weren't so intent upon trying to keep us from having sex and telling us what we need to know in the event that we DO have sex, this wouldn't happen as often.
Parents can help too, but in America? Pssh. We don't have parents. We have people who give us a little money and a lot of grief and then kick us out. (Am I, perhaps, a little jaded? Probably.)

One thing is that if this was done by survey, not everyone will respond. Even though it's anonymous, some people are just uncomfortable talking about sex and STDs, especially if they have one via unfortunate means. That's why Kinsey's report collected a very high homosexual behavior response... Because the only people that would talk to him were his students and male inmates. They try really hard to get a large group of people that would accurately describe the whole country, but it's difficult.

So it's either much higher or much lower. Unless all of America was tested, it's all guesswork. Then again, every survey is like this. (Which is neither here-nor-there, this is still a big problem that needs to be taken care of. Perhaps just getting the gibbon faced buffoon out of office will be enough.  8) )

I want comparative statistics for conservative and liberal demographics.

I already know where the "family values" right falls on the scale of young, unwed mothers and unwanted pregnancies. I have blanks on my check card for spousal abuse, STDs and monster trucks.

Wait... my mistake. The monster truck category is checked. There was chewing tobacco juice obscuring the chart.

Great, as if I wasn't paranoid enough about this. I've never had sex, never even been kissed or anything, but I'm always afraid that I have an STD. School bathrooms are absolutely frightening.

It depends entirely on the specific organism.
HIV has a very very very short lifespan if it's not in a host, but others can be quite persistent in a
minimally supportive environment (like, say, a crusty toilet seat).  I suspect crabs fall into the latter
category.

I should qualify my statement. I don't think of crabs when I consider STDs. You can gat scabies from someone's couch. A crab is just another variety of louse.

I must say that I do appreciate the trend, in public restrooms, toward to touch facilities. I have been in some in which one need not have direct contact with a single hard surface.

Motion sensor water sources also make the lives of mall bird clans much easier.

I went in for a test the middle of last week. The results should be back by either late this week or early next week.

One out of four.  At my school, I can easily believe that.  We don't get any sex ed until senior year, and we had 17 pregnant girls in the school this year.

See, the toilets in my school are so clean you can snort drugs off them! (true story.  We have had several incidents of people snorting cocaine or crushed up pills off the toilet seats.)

One out of four.  At my school, I can easily believe that.  We don't get any sex ed until senior year, and we had 17 pregnant girls in the school this year.

See, the toilets in my school are so clean you can snort drugs off them! (true story.  We have had several incidents of people snorting cocaine or crushed up pills off the toilet seats.)





umm, dude - that's not proof of cleanliness.

jdfu!

then again, if it was a survey, there's not a good chance they were telling the truth.
I took a drug survey at my school about 3 years ago, and they assured us it was confidential blah blah blah.
but nobody i know told the truth, not willing to take chances. again, a lot of people that run the schools are fucked up compulsive liars. 
 so if it was a survey, who knows how many american girls really have STDs...

Good point... I didn't think about that. I mentioned earlier that most people won't even respond, or don't know that they have STDs, but I didn't take lying into account... That's a huuuuge factor. But yes, the only way we'll really know is if we get all of America tested, which really should happen anyway.
(Didja know that here in PA giving someone an STD is a felony?  :D Another reason to be tested regularly.)

I don't know, I get mine yearly at my gyno, and it doesn't cost any extra than my normal co-pay.

This topic alone proves that sex education needs to be longer than a couple of days of talk in school by some teacher acting awkward and uncomfortable about it.

I'm not trying to be a crazy psycho feminist here, but it just figures that a survey would be conducted of girls instead of boys, and that 1 in 4 girls have an STD.

Did anybody conduct a study of boys?

Why go around and make the girls seem dirty? That's how I'm reading this. Yes, we need better sex education in America (and I'm lucky my mother taught me way before school sex talks) but part of this better education would be balanced studies.

I'm sure many of these girls were very willing to have sex with whoever, but how many of these girls were raped? Coerced? Guilted into giving head, because the boy had blue balls? Asked to swallow? Told that condoms meant he couldn't feel anything?

Whose fault is it, really?

Amen sister. No that isn't sarcasm. Far too often people take what I say as sarcasm.

There's a big argument over this sort of thing, and as I understand it, here are the reasons:

1) "Boys will be boys." This does not necessarily condone their behavior, but as they do not have to control themselves or be ladylike, as we do, it's acceptable to the general public.
     ergo, people won't have much pity for them. They will, however, be shocked into doing something by the sheer amount of girls with STDs.
2) For girls, sex is dirty. We're taught to wipe ourselves carefully when we go to the bathroom, not for health reasons, but because we're dirty. We're not to touch ourselves, because it's dirty, there are germs. But when little boys discover their penis, which they do at great length, they are allowed to. Girls must remain clothed at all times, boys can take off their shirts and pants and it's ok. Our society is oversexualized, and we're doing more harm than not by not teaching our children anything. (by the by, it's been proven that a young girl [read: 12 and under] who masturbates to orgasm will have a better, healthier sex life in her later years. Knowing this, if you had a daughter, would you teach her?)
     so the condition of a girl's reproductive health these days is far more interesting to the public than boys, who are more commonly asymptomatic. Which brings me to my next point:
3) it's easier for girls to know if they have an STD because they have more symptoms more frequently, and they (should) get regular pap smears.
     thusly, if they surveyed boys too, the rate of error would be much higher than the typical rate. It simply would not be accurate.


That's all I can think of now. But honestly, I agree with you. It's fucked up.
And you want my opinion on who's fault it is? PARENTS. omg PARENTS. It's not the school's job to teach the children about sex. They should, but what they teach should supplement the parents. So many parents don't know how, and don't know what to say, and get uncomfortable, and claim it's not their responsibility. Playa please. You brought that child into the world, it's your responsibility to keep it healthy.
God I hate this country sometimes.
