    @NickiPower that’s a great point. I know a lot of people who don’t worry about condoms because they have other preventative measures for pregnancy. People seem much more afraid of pregnancy than infections etc.

    *engages sarcastic tone* But aren’t all diseases treatable now? So why do we need to prevent them? I can just get treated right? Besides I’m a clean person! *disengage sarcasm*

    So yeah, I used to hear from a lot of people who thought being “clean” (as in soap and water) and “eating healthy” and exercising would save them from all manner of things that germs and viruses tend not to give two hoots about. These people would not survive the apocalypse.

    It possibly could be because of the chance of pregnancy is removed. That’s a great point!

    @NickiPower I think I read the same article about the retirement villages. It was actually talking about how the Super Gonorrhoea is the most prevalent within retirement homes in Australia. Interesting that older generations are the ones most at risk of the harder to treat gonorrhoea

    That is interesting @DeftRat! And a good thing to remember your safe sex at every stage of life!
