gamerdatingnetwork - Lesbian dating with herpes
Positive Singles boasts of 30,000 registered UK members - while Herpes Dating says it has 794,600 members – with more than 60,000 dating success stories.
Let’s face it: it sounds like a bizarre concept, but even if the stigma attached to STIs is hideously out-dated and redundant (it is), there’s no denying how difficult it can be telling a potential sexual partner about something you have contracted sexually from someone else. “I don’t have the confidence to simply broadcast my condition,” he says.
Meanwhile studies show that one in four students catch a sexual infection during their first year of university; three quarters of sexually active women will contract HPV in their lives and by the age of 30, 50 per cent of people will have contracted HSV-1 and 25 per cent of the sexually active, HSV-2. Sign up and along with ‘enjoys yoga,’ you also enter your STI into your profile.
Some of these new digital dating agencies, which are free of charge, cater specifically to certain diseases, while others take a more general approach and don’t just confine themselves to the incurable: Chlamydia and even thrush are all on the handy drop down menus.
But with the number of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) rising in the UK each year, it’s not only those who wear a lot of zebra print and have a working knowledge of the Wetherspoons’ toilet cubicles that are affected, as urban myths would have you believe.
