Safe Sex and Unsafe Sex

U.S. syphilis rate up for 7th year in a row.

At least, you can't blame this on the girls at the Emperors Club. They insist on safe sex, though, not so safe that the ex-guv of N.Y. was protected.

1 in 4 teenage girls now have an STD, most have HPV. For blacks the rate is 50%.

Go get your daughters the HPV vaccine.

A virus that causes cervical cancer is by far the most common sexually transmitted infection in teen girls aged 14 to 19, while the highest overall prevalence is among black girls -- nearly half the blacks studied had at least one STD. That rate compared with 20 percent among both whites and Mexican-American teens, the study from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.

Hey, TG, you were prepared to make a preemptive pounce and call me a racist here. Then I provided the info you requested but you slinked away, never recognizing my greatness. I think you owe me an apology.
