    Sexual diseases double in eight years among the over-45s

    Health officials yesterday called for a safe sex campaign aimed at the middle-aged after a sharp rise in sexually transmitted infections in the over-45s.
    Cases more than doubled among the age group between 1996 and 2003, according to figures compiled from 19 sexual health clinics by the Health Protection Agency.
    Doctors said the rise could be a result of more older people being single or beginning new relationships and being less likely to use condoms because there was a much lower risk of pregnancy. Internet dating and drugs for impotence were also likely to play a role, they added.

    Interesting! I knew there were several good reasons to quit dating!
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    I think it's also because more and more over 45 year-olds are having 'flings' and one night stands.

    Predicted New Trends:

    You'll see Viagra Plus with penencillin added.

    Each 6 months of paid dating site registration requires a health screening.

    Condom companies providing coupons for prescription antibiotics on their packaging.

    The development of instant blood tests for hiv, similar to diabetes sugar testers.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!

    I find these news releases of studies to be sensationalized. They don't really explain the methodologies involved in collecting their data. They did mention that the results were from a sexual health clinic. Maybe that skews the data. How many cities did this data come from? Did they get data from people who are treated by their private doctors? Are the people visiting a sexual health clinic a representative sample of the population in that age group? It looks very unscientific to me and I find it very suspect.

    I'm only 40, but I've always dated and been friends with older men and have seen a trend in my own unscientific method of seeing. As they age, MANY men have... difficulties. Condoms sometimes are the only things that make the difficulties into impossibilities. If it comes down to unsafe sex or no sex, few men I've ever met consider no sex. It's very sad. I'm going to have to start dating younger men.

    The good news is that men can start to use spray on latex protection.
