  • I wouldn't be having sex with anyone if I had an STD. Even if I had no morals, having sex while harboring an STD would gross me out. What a turn off!

  • It is socially irresponsible not to. Not to mention unethical... man, I'm glad I don't have to deal with this!

  • Yes you would have to tell people. It is your responsibility to do so...

  • I, personally, would abstain. But then again, I was kind of a prudish single girl... you know, when you're married, all bets are off!

  • I can't see myself in this position... Not a fan of random sex( or sex w/o committed relationship)... Never have been.. Sure as hell wouldn't start now. Funny thing about self confidence~ I care about my body enough to take care of it.

  • I would tell, and yes STD does not necessarily mean a life of abstinence.

  • here the Health dept does it because many don't inform their partners. They come right to your house with a paper for you to fill out with the name(s)

  • I wouldn't have sex until it was taken care of. If its one that can't be gotten rid of I think you have to tell your partner.

  • Tell other partners about your STD or don't have sex. It's so wrong to pass it.

  • What kind of STD? Herpes? Most of the other ones you can get medication for. If I had herpes or AIDS, I wouldnt be having random sex. Kind of irresponsible to be spreading stuff around. If I met someone & developed a relationship of course I would let them know & then we could decide together what to do...or not do.
