STDs Running Rampant In Retirement Community
Jame’s post below about some CT challenger to Joe Lieberman whom I have never heard of sent me to memeorandum, where this jewel of under reported stories was displayed.
Doctors said sexually transmitted diseases among senior citizens are running rampant at a popular Central Florida retirement community, according to a Local 6 News report.
A gynecologist at The Villages community near Orlando, Fla., said she treats more cases of herpes and the human papilloma virus in the retirement community than she did in the city of Miami.
“Yeah, they are very shocked (to hear the diagnosis),” gynecologist Dr. Colleen McQuade said. “I had a patient in her 80s.”
Blame Viagra? Or blame lack of sex education? That is right, something, rather than someone, must be blamed.
Local 6 featured Louis Franklin, who used to date in the community at least three times a week.
“I have had a better dating life since I have been here than I have ever had,” Franklin said. “I know there are things going around.”
A doctor blamed Viagra, a lack of sex education and no risk for pregnancy for the spike in sexually transmitted diseases at The Villages.
“All I can repeat are the things I have heard which are things like, ‘Should I bring the little blue pills over tonight?'” community singles group president Richard Matwyshen said.
This is indeed sensationalist reporting, with the message being you are never too old for sex.
