How to get an STD without Having Sexx

Did you know that you don’t actually have to have s-x or intercourse to be able to catch an STD?  A lot of people excuse their promiscuous ways by stating that they are always using protection, but protection doesn’t keep you clear of all the diseases that are out there.  Black women are at especially high risk of catching STDs, since black men have more partners in their lifetimes than other groups, according to the CDC.   Also, not as many black people get married as whites, which increases the number of s-x partners you have in your life time.

One way to catch an STD without intercourse is through “oral pleasure.”  If a man goes down on you and has herpes, he can pass it to you by putting his mouth in contact with your private parts.  Also, if he has genital herpes and you put your mouth on him, you can catch something as well.

Dr. Andrew Lang at the Huffington Post writes a great article about how you can catch STDs without having s-x. He says that STDs are regularly undetected, since people don’t always get tested for all of the diseases.   Those who sleep with black men may have to be just as careful, since a lot of black men are struggling with high unemployment and incarceration rates, meaning that some of them are not insured and don’t go to the doctor.  We’re not bashing our brothers, but it’s the truth.  Dr. Lang tells more:

I had a patient in his 50s who came to be seen for a recurring rash on his back. He had it for years and had never been told what it was. I knew in a second it was a herpes infection that had migrated from an earlier contact. Most likely it had been a genital contact with someone who didn’t even know they had herpes. He might have been spreading his infection also, not knowing he was doing so. We tested him and it came back positive. Some people don’t want to know they have “VD,” but he was glad because then he could be treated effectively rather than being treated for a rash and never getting better.

    ok so I'm going to assume almost all adults have been through sex ed how could you have not known this, its good for the younger folks though.

  2. Toni Russelle Smith on

    Ummmm use common sense. Don't sleep around, NO fwb, NO nsa, NO 1 hitter quitters, both get tested and know your partners history.

  3. "Those who sleep with black men may have to be very may have to be just as careful since a lot of black men are struggling with high unemployment. " What the F*ck is this?

    this is media people think why are black men the center of all evil!
    if it ain't baby mamas it's hip hop/ it is 2013 it is time to stop being the scapegoats of society we let the media dictate what people even our own women think of us. not all of us are corrupt and ignorant. my black women and others people of the world you give power and life to all these judgments! but seriously be safe and smart and black men surprise them (the world) they want us and expect us to fail!

    That's exactly what I said.. A white person came up with this shit so racist. I see exactly what agenda they have here and I'm not falling for that shit smdh

  6. I don't particularly like the reference to "black men" because VD does not discriminate. This applies to anyone of any race. The moral here is DO NOT SLEEP AROUND. Someone here said only when you are tested and know your partners history. The testing part is true but unfortunately you can NEVER truly know your partners history for a few reasons. First, they lie because of shame. That would fall into those on the DL. Second, their previous partners have lied so when you sleep with them you take the risk of many others you have no knowledge of. Third, people do things and regret it but that does not stop them from wanting to move forward in their lives…so they ignore the risk and try to sweep it under the rug. As I always say, abstain, get tested, use condoms, be monogamous. Protect yourselves.

  7. Why would anyone think that this is racist??If this disease can be transmitted by having sexual intercourse than it certainly can be transmitted by having oral sex as well especially with people who have gum disease and bad teeth.Men are getting neck and head cancers from having oral sex women are getting cervical cancer cause by the HP Virus carried by men so what’s more important being educated or used dumb excuses like racisim so that you can continue to play Russian Roulette with your life thinking it want happen to you.The wise thing too do is stop commtting fornication and adulteryand there would be no need to have this converstion.SMH

    • Could not this article have been written without reference to Black people? How do you equate high STDs with low marriage rates? Why are Black women assumed to only be sleeping around with Black men? What about homosexuality and its implications for oral pleasures? My point: this poorly written article put unneccesary references to race and skewed the objectivity of the message. We had a gonnorhea epidemic in Lexington KY amongst schoolchildren. Everyone assumed it was Black children and called for the scrutiny of Black parenting. It became evident that it was affluent white children having “Head Parties”. You are right-STDs don’t discriminate…and we shouldn’t either.

      Obviously, you have your own opinions. True that adultery and fornication should not be committed, however, it does not always happen because of fornication and adultery! Good grief. Wake up and stop being shut up in a box. This is happening to MARRIED couples who may have been in marriages before. So therefore, that makes your argument invalid. It is the HPV virus that also the number 1 cause of cervical cancers in women. As far as racism… this article was targeting the BLACK community! Why not just put the article as non-race specific? Why is the black community being talked about as being unemployed and incarcerated? Think about that instead of hopping on that “this is not racism but the truth bandwagon” and open your eyes. Racism has become so rampant and obvious and it really is only because of people like you who accept this mess!

  8. WHITES ARE THE NUMBER ONE CARRIER OF HERPES.THE FIRST CASE OF AIDS
    WAS DETECTED IN A WELL KNOWN FAMOUS ACTOR BY THE NAME OF ROCK
    HUDSON HERE IN THE U.S..THE SAD PART ABOUT THIS ARTICLE IS THAT THIS
    Dr. DO NOT HAVE THE STATISTICS ON WHITEMEN AND THEIR WOMEN SHOWING
    BIAS TOWARDS ALL BLACKMEN BECAUSE THE POLITICAL MUSCLE TO DEFEND
    US IS NOT THERE.THE FACT THAT IT IS AIMED AT ONE RACE AND NOT AT ANOTHER IN RESPECT TO FAIRNESS IS SHAMEFUL, AND DEGRADEING.THE FACT
    THAT THIS ARTICLE IS TRYING TO PERSUADE BLACKWOMEN TO HAVE SEX OUT
    SIDE OF THEIR RACE MAKES ME THINK THAT THE AUTHOR HAS A WHITE GIRL
    FRIEND.FIRST OF ALL HE SHOULD NOT IMPOSE HIS RACIALLY BIAS AGENDA
    UPON THE BLACK COMMUNITY,BUT THEN AGAIN THE EDITOR COULD BE A
    BLACKWOMAN THAT HATE BLACKMEN,THAT ONLY DATE WHITEMEN BECAUSE
    SHE COULD NOT CONNECT WITH A BLACKMEN LEAVING HER BITTER,HURT.
    BASICALLY TO ME THIS IS A RACE BAITING ARTICLE DISQUISED WITH SOME
    FACTS THAT GO ON IN OUR COMMUNITY,

    This is the type of article that misleads people. Any study done by the CDC regarding diseases is suspect because the CDC collects its data from Public facilities where poor people visit and make up 95% of the patient population pool. Rich people have insurance so if they have STDs, the CDC won’t know about it because they attend private medical facilities that don’t have to report data.

    So, the numbers are calculated using poor people only. It is this type of Metadata that people need in order to write intelligent articles. Otherwise, they just write stupid articles and spread false information that is used to justify racist belief systems.

    Black females contract their diseases from other men and maybe other women. Dr. Lang could spread an STD.

    Stop blaming Black men; it’s black women also. Black females have too long painted themselves as victims. They are villians also. They should look at themselves before they look at Black men.
    They must first take the logs out of their eyes before they can see the sticks in the eyes of others.

    This type of article makes people feel more comfortable with people of other races because of color which leads to the spreading of diseases.

    Dr. Lang is a nut.

  10. This title is misleading. Every example in this article is about getting an STD from having sex. When fluids are exchanged between people then there is always a risk of disease.

  11. Dr Lang is like all hater of Black people,white’s point toward blacks when there is something to make blacks look bad.The first time I ever saw a picture oral sex it was White people how to books,vedio,mag,all white.So Dr Lang is out of touch with really or just plain Crazy.

  12. Based on some of the comments, it appears that people did not read Dr. Andrew Lange’s (not Lang) actual article from the Huffington Post. If you look at his actual article from the Huffington Post, you will see that he does not mention black people at all. So why are people labeling him as a racist? This healthyblackwoman.com webpage took Dr. Lange’s information and injected their opinions within it to make it look like he said it. I find it very interesting that the statements that people are deeming racist was actually written by someone from healthyblackwoman.com (most likely a black woman).

    The person from healthyblackwoman.com who wrote this article obviously has a personal agenda which includes absolving black women of any personal responsibility and falsely used Dr. Lange’s article to validate it. This website is doing black people (especially black women) a disservice. This website needs to be telling women to be responsible for their own choices and actions and inform them on how to protect themselves (stop fornicating with numerous random men, tell these men to get tested and wear protection).

  13. So black women are not promiscuous? And white men are not having sex? Give me a break.

    It is this total refusal to be honest and address what is really going on in black America which is leading us to our own destruction.

    Unreal.

  14. I find this article both amusing and informative. The White man has had AIDS for years and he did not get it in Africa. Young White girls are really into oral Sex, they do it on the school bus and anywhere else they can open that mouth. But on the other hand we have our share of STDs also. Better to be informed and protect yourself than to not, regardless of race.

  15. Clifton Richard on

    This is just another smear campaign being reaped upon black men. This article gives no accountability on the choices of black women. Black men let us stop being the perpetual scapegoats of this racist society.

  16. So if a black woman only have s-x with white men, she is Not at Risk anymore? Lol!! If a black man only have s-x with white women ,he is Safe from AIDS ? Kmsl!!!!

  17. Vernon Balmer Jr. on

    Dr. Spencer: There's a myth about the down-low male being responsible for the large number of cases of HIV in the heterosexual community, particularly in the African-American community. This is a man who has sex with both men and women and is usually in a stable relationship with a woman, maybe a wife or a longtime girlfriend. Studies have shown that these men actually only account for a rather small percentage of HIV infection in the African-American community. By far, the majority of women are getting infected by men who are heterosexual and either unaware of their HIV status, have multiple partners, are using injection drugs or engaging in other high-risk behaviors.

  18. I have to say after reading this article I question “Healthy Black Women” for allowing something like this to be posted on this site.

    While I think letting all races know that there is a possibility that an STD can be spread simply with oral sex and such. Allowing this article to focus on African American men is out of bounds and very disrespectful.

    I request it be removed and retracted. Thank you in advanced. Our African American men have enough to deal with.

  19. I don't want to be in that "small percentage". Still, I trust NO ONE to have my best interest at heart. These days, it's no open mouth kissing; no "tongue", no "licking" sweat or face, none of that. Those playful little "quick tongued butterflies" around the perimeter of the lips could be getting ready to break into a full fledged herpes cold sore tomorrow. So read up on the different infections and become knowledgeable for your own safety.

    That article should have stated Humans. There are alot of people of other races that spread diseases and have reckless sex. Tell the damn truth..

  21. Janay's Childrenovereverything on

    Infinity you can use condoms for oral sex….. that's been said for years learn that when I was 14

  22. Kozette Cookie Toe-Bells Blackmon on

    THE WRITER WHOM EVER THIS FUCKER IS, IS BOGUS AS HELL! STFU IDIOT AN GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU GO WITH THE RACIAL SHIT!

  23. thosewhodonothingcomplainabouteverything on

    I know this is b***s**t I have been around both poor Latino and poor black culture for 30years. And I know for a fact that so called Latinos engage in more riskier sex and have more partners than both white or black people. But somehow its black people. This is a blatant and disgusting attempt to create a government endorsed narrative to make black males undesirable to all non black women and most of all white women. Personally I don’t lust for their females, however this is complete garbage. They know its a chess move designed to further stigmatize and to neutralize us racially. They want us to react to this with protest and anger knowing it would carry their message further,wider,and louder which is the ultimate objective in releasing something so racially specific. The louder we yell about it the more outside groups will here of it and decide it must be true. Yet if we stay silent they will begin to create and compile more lies until we do speak out. So you see it is a check-mate attempt and unfortunately I’m not sure if we have any more moves to make.

  24. I agree with the article. Statistics shows black men are more than likely to have multiple baby mamas. The least likely to marry out of the races. Labeling themselves players ain’t cool when you’re walking around burning!

  25. It has been reported that the Asians has a new form of gonerrea out! It is suppose to be worse than HIV/AIDS, because it is resistant to medical treatment. But, they want to blame everything on Black men!

  26. Olivia Brooks on

    I see a lot of your points and I agree with most of you. Black men, I gave birth to three of them, have been bashed for far to long. My point though is this. How can you catch a std without having sex. Well, isn't oral SEX just that, SEX? The whole article falls apart after that. Oral sex is SEX, Dr. Andrew Lang. I didn't go to med school and I know that.

  27. Samuel Hill Jr. on

    This was geared towards the WHITE woman when Dr. Lang stated, ( Those who sleep with Black Men should be just as careful…)Dr. Lang is a Racist trying to bamboozle someone!
