STDs and Slut Shaming Don't Date Whores Militant Eroticism

Don’t Date Your Fellow Dirty Whores

What is it about STDs that get a special place in our mind? A disproportionate fear of getting sick is held firm while equally or more dangerous ailments are brushed off. People are, for some reason, terrified of visiting the doctor to obtain an often easy remedy to a possible issue. It can’t be the sickness itself, almost all are curable and HIV is highly manageable with even more medical wonders in human trials. Perhaps it pertains to something else, like an idea behind these STDs or STIs…a stigma.

Our puritanical beginnings inform our view of sex, no matter how liberated we may be when compared to bygone eras. In the mainstream, the taboo of sex and it being “dirty” are still alive and well. Think about how many times you’ve said or have seen on Grindr “looking for dirty fun” or have said “dirty boy/girl” or even “filthy slut/whore” in bed. A prime difference between then and now is that individuals are outwardly having fun with the idea that sex is dirty. It is now titillating and part of what makes sexual encounters even more erotic.

Although the sleaze of sex now has some glamor attached, the afterglow still has those darkened roots giving way to life. Consider how you view someone knowing they had contracted gonorrhea or the inability to go on dating someone who is on antibiotics for an STD and was responsible enough to tell you before headed to the bedroom. Besides the point that most people can’t handle hearing that a person has had sex before them for some reason, they tie a special disdain for people who have gotten ill as a result of a natural behavior we all engage in! Perhaps contracting syphilis or genital warts compounds the idea of a dirty whore or sex being a filthy bestial act. ( I may have gotten an erection from the dirty talk just now).

I believe the fear of STDs is connected to not wanting to date a whore or not wanting to be one. The more trendy phrase of “slut shaming” is quite appropriate here, even under the guise of remaining “clean”; what a revealing term huh?! Only whores and sluts get sick, but would you judge someone for getting food poisoning or the flu? I mean, think about it. Shouldn’t you have known better than to eat spoiled food? Didn’t you see the microsized mold or felt how soft it was? You knew the secretary was sick and something was going around the office, doesn’t that show how irresponsible you are? Oh right, you have to go to work but you don’t have to have sex or you do need to have sex, and only barebacking means disease. Sorry kids, many STDs, and STIs aren’t prevented by a condom and I’ve yet to encounter someone who wears one with oral sex. Yes, it is true that we’re told to wear all sorts of things during oral sex and yes condoms do help mitigate the risk of SOME STDs and STIs. But, let’s be honest with ourselves and not slut shame our fellow whores about our equally “reprehensible” behavior. Also, remember that condoms don’t prevent herpes…so even some bare dry humping isn’t safe! (hence the far more appropriate phrase of “safer sex”)

There is nothing especially dangerous about STDs and STIs that separates them from other common ailments able to kill you except fucking. Remember that the flu is far more deadly than syphilis and at least we have a cure for the latter. Each individual must change our culture by beginning to look at this “special class” of disease as just another risk in life. We can mitigate them via hygiene, condoms, PReP, Treatment as Prevention or TasP, and Post-exposure Prophylaxis or PeP, but just like catching the flu on the bus, sometimes shit just happens.

No one is bad for getting ill. It’s a reality of living, you’re going to get sick. I believe that Truvada Whores are some of the most responsible sexual adults. They are people managing the risks of their sex life and pursuing their lusty appetites with proper medical information. But, it follows from the “sex is dirty” mantra that they are seen as dirty whores, fearing that they are more promiscuous or take more risks. Take more risks, isn’t that a cute little add-on. Those that take off the condoms due to believing their partner or boyfriend or girlfriend are also monogamous is taking a greater risk than those who enjoy casual sex, get tested frequently, and take their PReP or HIV medication.

Always remember,

Keep your skirts up,

Your Pants Down,

and no matter who bends over…

y’all just don’t want a whore even though you share a corner with them.
