Here’s an idea, stop sleeping around and stick to one partner, you know, like the Conservatives do? Religious couples don’t have these issues (always be the one off exception).
A sign of our culture degrading? No need to look any further than the details in this piece. The escort business, not to mention the sex slave trade, continues to be ignored. The Church is nowhere to be seen (not shocking anymore) – Western Civilisation is long dead.
And modern day feminists are crying foul about walking on their own late in the dark? Give me a break, this ‘filth’ is deemed acceptable because of “my body my choice”.

Sales for STI test kits have rocketed in the past few weeks as people prepare for a “summer of sex” when lockdown ends, but resistant strains of gonorrhoea and other STIs going undetected may lead to an STI epidemic just as we get out a pandemic.
Nationwide sales of STI kits have increased 20 per cent since Boris Johnson’s address to the nation outlining the UK’s roadmap out of lockdown on the February 22, according to Superdrug.
Superdrug has also seen a five per cent in STI kit sales in the Greater London area, specifically sales for gonorrhoea and chlamydia tests which have increased by 16 per cent.
But experts warn that this influx of testing may not be enough to save Londoners from new strains of resistant ” super gonorrhoea ” which do not respond to antibiotics.
Dr Elle Vooght, a junior doctor and sexual wellness expert, told MyLondon: “Unfortunately, pre-pandemic levels of STIs were the highest they have been since World War II. There is a reason that generation of babies are called Boomers!
“We have now had a year where it has been more difficult to access medical services, with many clinicians in the sexual health field being redeployed to work on the Covid front line. Sexual health has also taken a back seat for us, as we were staring in the face of a potential killer which understandably took priority.
“The UK has already been exposed to multi-resistant gonorrhoea, where current antibiotic therapies are no longer useful. We have little to no alternative treatments due to under-research of antibiotics from their low profitability and from poor antibiotic use.
“The result of this is that levels are rising across multiple hotspots in the UK. Gonorrhoea can cause a multitude of complications including pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.”
The other risk is that Londoners may be carrying STIs not identifiable by home test kits. Sexual health charity Brook told MyLondon: ” Lockdown may have made it challenging for some people to manage their sexual health.
“Although Brook clinics remained open throughout the pandemic, many other sexual health services closed, limiting some people’s access to contraception and STI testing and treatment.”
Certain STIs usually require a patient to be physically seen by a medical professional to be diagnosed, including herpes, genital warts and crabs.
Dr Vooght told MyLondon there is a risk many of these will not have been detected during Covid times, and those carrying them may be doing so completely unaware of their affliction.
She said: “We are seeing a rise in the buying of ‘test at home kits’. These kits are great if you have no symptoms but if you have any worries or concerns, you should see a clinician.
“Lumps, bumps, pain and discharge need a physical examination and extra tests that unfortunately can’t be done from the comfort of your own home.
“If it seems way too embarrassing, or there are other reasons why you don’t wish to have a physical examination, please consider having a telephone appointment with your local clinic first to discuss your worries.
“Whilst regular testing is brilliant and I encourage everyone to do it at least every six months, the best way to prevent STIs is by using condoms.
“I would love if we could take the amazing attitude we have had in regard to mask wearing and apply this to condom use.”
