There’s still no cure for herpes; promiscuity doesn’t help your ethny

Remember, folks, that you have reproductive systems so that your bodies can reproduce.

Sex is not an end in itself, and if sex is treated as an end in itself, there are numerous side effects: dehumanization, social destabilization, venereal disease, to name a few.

About 16 percent of Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with genital herpes, making it one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, U.S. health officials said on Tuesday.

Black women had the highest rate of infection at 48 percent and women were nearly twice likely as men to be infected, according to an analysis by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

About 21 percent of women were infected with genital herpes, compared to only 11.5 percent of men, while 39 percent of blacks were infected compared to about 12 percent for whites, the CDC said.

There is no cure for genital herpes, or herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), which can cause recurrent and painful genital sores and also increases the likelihood of acquiring and transmitting the AIDS virus. It is related to herpes simplex virus 1, or oral herpes, which causes cold sores.

The CDC estimates that more than 80 percent of people with genital herpes do not know they are infected.

It remains to be seen how gravely venereal disease will affect the gene pools and reproductive success levels of the USA’s various ethnic groups.
