‘Safe Sex’

page 001Next

Safer sex (sleeping around using condoms) doesn’t mean safe sex.  There is all this talk about sex with a condom being ‘protected sex’ and sex without a condom being ‘unprotected’.  So we get the idea that using a condom makes sex safer than safe.  But a condom is really just safer than nothing.

The Marie Stopes organisation produces a  Government-approved website.  The section on Sexually Transmitted Diseases says:  http://www.likeitis.org/love_bugs.html
 : ‘If you’re sexually active or thinking of having sex, do yourself a favour – avoid all the STIs (sexually transmitted infections) below by always practising safer sex…sex with a condom.’

Did they say ‘avoid all the STIs’? Mouse-over on ‘Herpes’ and you’ll find that condoms don’t stop the Herpes Simplex Virus. It can be spread by skin-to-skin contact, orally, or whatever. http://www.ruthinking.co.uk/ which is another Government-approved site takes exactly the same line, while the Brook Advisory say: ‘Using a male or female condom every time you have sex will stop the transmission of most STIs’. http://www.brook.org.uk/content/M2_4_sti.asp

Even that is not true. Condoms are ineffective against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which causes genital warts and cervical cancer. HPV is alleged currently to be infecting an astonishing 60% of sexually-active adults.

The National Institute for Health in America reported: ‘Consistent condom use does not appear to reduce the risk of transmission of HPV from men to women.’ http://www.medinstitute.org/media/NIH%20Answers.htm  In fact they found no evidence that condoms were effective against anything except HIV (the AIDS virus) and the transmission of gonorrhea from women to men.   That’s not what you are being told by the Government and its teams of ‘health workers’ at all.  This site is mainly for parents, but at least it tells the truth:
