Mar 16, Posts: Why do you think we have so many single moms now? Apparently, "it doesn't feel as good" is a good enough excuse not to use a condom.
I have two in-laws who each have children from 3 different partners, and another who has children from two different partners-- and it's not due to death or divorce. Naturally, they are both relying on the state and other family members for their livelihood, since it's hard to get by when you have lots of unplanned shorties about. These folks who are getting HIV also don't seem to feel having a lifelong illness that will likely kill you is enough of a reason to "not feel as good" either.
I'm pretty sure that's not allowed in today's hyper-PC environment-- no matter what value it might have. And the two SJWs who voted you down at this point seem to agree.
Nov 9, Posts: And a down vote for you as well, sir. STD tests are not a perfect indicator, but that doesn't mean they're worthless and anyone who pays attention to one is ignorant. The simple fact is some people want to engage in casual sex, some of that group are willing to at least make a real effort to be safe about it, and STD tests, while imperfect, have some value for those people.
A service like name99 described would have a use among that subgroup. Personally I suspect that such a service would never get off the ground for a variety of practical reasons, but that doesn't make the idea itself or the expression of it a problem. All sex involves some degree of risk. Even in a presumably monogamous relationship where both individuals were presumably virgins before the relationship began, it's always possible that your partner has lied or cheated.
It seems to me that any idea that encourages people to be responsible and decrease their level of risk, especially among those who choose to engage in practices such as craigslist hookups that are toward the riskier end of the spectrum, should be encouraged rather than insulted and down voted.

It may be weak and ripe for peer scrutiny, but as far as I know it's the first of its kind and thus merits interest. Feb 8, Posts: While lab test shows that the latex barrier can stop all the virus, other test results about the uncontrolled real life usage of condoms, shows that a sock made of a delicate barrier, placed by an operator under not quite cool headed conditions, after being stored who knows how long, in unsuitable conditions think the car glovebox.
Of course if the condoms are used new after proper storage and checked to be properly in place, they work much closer to the theoretical effectiveness. Or for all STDs?

Apr 13, Posts: Rindan Ars Scholae Palatinae Registered: Jul 11, Posts: Don't get me wrong, I fully believe Craigslist like websites and maybe even Craigslist itself likely drive part of the problem.
Just realize that Craigslist is going to correlate to a lot of other similarish websites that grew on the same technology. All that said, it really isn't all that big of a jump. I personally am happy that technology is helping to fight its own anti-social tendencies. Stuff like Grinder, OkCupid, and even Craigslist has been a real boon for a lot of people.
It is good to be reminded that unsafe sex practices can lead to bad things, but I hold no malice towards new ways for like minded folks to hook up. As far as the prostitution angle goes; that is just what happens when you have a black market.
Black markets are unsafe. If you wanted to stop the spread of STDs via prostitution, you would just legalize and regulate the trade. I know more than a couple of folks doing sex work, and for the legal ones, safety is job one. The ones that are forced into the black market tend to be much more lax when it comes to safety. Oct 27, Posts: Suppose there was another, similar service rolling out at the same time and it was actually responsible for the increase in HIV and Craigslist was innocent.
Then the authors wouldn't have found HIV rates increasing in tandem with Craigslist's roll-out in city after city after city. Other small services rolling out on a very different schedule than Craigslist would add noise to the data and bias the effect toward zero. The authors use a difference-in-differences estimator which asserts a type of Granger causality if the model assumptions are met. Difference-in-differences is not without its detractors, but it is worth noting that the authors of this study did do the robustness checks that account for the technique's weaknesses which even if uncorrected only affect significance levels, without biasing the estimated effect size.
Now it's entirely appropriate for some epidemiologist to re-run this study using whatever is standard for exposure to a community-level risk factor, but calling the results mere correlation is unfair.

It seems like such services would be a good place to put warnings or information on STD risks, payed or legally forced, kind of like on cigarette packs.

Shavano Ars Tribunus Militum Tribus: Oct 6, Posts: Cripes, it was anonymous casual sex that lead the the HIV epidemic the first time around. Apparently people absolutely never learn. Odds are there are a lot of people doing it now that weren't doing it then.
