The rate of seniors catching sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) have doubled in the last several years according to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. A variety of reasons can explain the situation–after having a “safe partner” for years they may be unaware of the escalating levels of STD’s, they don’t talk to their doctors about sex and therefore don’t get tested, aches and pains may be attributed to aging.
The only safe sex is no sex, but you do not have to retire to be safe. Seniors are urged to practice the same caution that is advised for younger sexually active adults. Cute graphic below has greatest and latest info on STD’s.
If you aren’t too shy, comment below with your experiences.
