Not true. Hepatitis (C especially) and HPV are incurable. They created a vaccine for females as a preventative measure to HPV, but there's nothing for males (as far as I know?) Hepatitis (A, B or C) isn't a commonly transmitted disease, sexually. Its primary transfer agent is blood-to-blood contact. People who engage in ana
l sex are much more likely to catch the virus than vag
It's super rarely passed from vagi
nal intercourse, but there's still a possibility. Most people who catch Hepatitis do so from sharing needles or engaging in ana
l sex. Like HIV (in the Western and Developing World - Africa being the exception where men and women are virtually equally infected, and 99% of new cases result from heterosexual sex), the majority of those infected with Hepatitis are homosexual men. Unlike HIV however, like I said, the majority of new transmissions occur from needle sharing (whereas homosexual men are the primary pool of HIV infected individuals).
I received an Inbox message cussing me up and down talking about it *Hepatitis isn't a gay disease!" ... "stop spreading bullshit rumors you're just as likely to get it from vagi
nal sex as you are an
al sex!" ... "it's HIGHLY likely you will catch any form of Hepatitis from fuc
ssy! maybe even more than buttholes!"
Alright, for starters, I never said Hepatitis was a "gay disease." Secondly, Hepatitis is a virus, not a disease. They're not one in the same. Step up your common sense. I didn't say it was impossible to get Hepatitis from having vagin
al sex, I simply said it's not commonly and way more unlikely, whereas ana
l sex is a MUCH higher probability (due to blood-to-blood exchange).
I'm not in the business of gay-bashing. I'm simply putting simple facts out there. If pirates want to sail the seas in search of endless booty and backdoor treasure, that's their business; I'm just putting some simple facts out there. I hate it when people get so upset and offended when someone mentions the FACT the majority of those infected with HIV/AIDS are homosexual men. Like it or not, be it PC or not, it's simply the truth. I'm not saying HIV is a gay virus, I'm just saying pee-wee in the place where you empty your butt is the primary source of new HIV infections. It's been that way since the virus appeared in the early 80's, and the tend hasn't changed since.
Hepatitis: How Does It Spread?
Hepatitis C spreads through infected blood. In the U.S., sharing needles or "works" to inject drugs is the most common cause of infection. Getting a tattoo or body piercing with an infected needle is another means of exposure. A mother may pass the virus to her child at birth. In rare cases, unprotected sex spreads hepatitis C, but the risk appears small. Having multiple sex partners, HIV, or rough sex seems to increase risk for spreading hepatitis C.
