It should be, especially if you deliberately mis-represent yourself to your partner.

Pocket Ninja: It should be, especially if you deliberately mis-represent yourself to your partner.


I wonder if there'd be a distinction between non-disclosure of a disease and actively stating there is none. Sort of like with housing you have to disclose issues with the property you can't just remain silent and hope the buyer doesn't ask.

But seriously if someone 'changes their mind' about using a condom, especially on the 4th date, change your mind about having sex with them. It's still wrong for them not to disclose their condition, but would you rather be "right" with a life long disease, or not have the disease in the first place?

4th date huh? Prude.
 
2012-06-05 01:43:35 PM  
That's far more expensive than paying for the STD known as "pregnancy".

From the sounds of it, it wasn't a matter of "I don't want to wear a condom, let's have sex anyway" and more a matter of "I don't want to wear a condom, you can't see my penis, penis goes IN..."

The_EliteOne: Don't want to disclose? Use a condom.


I still am of the belief you should disclose any possible STDs. Condoms aren't 100% safe. I mean, I felt terrible when I gave Pocket Ninja the clap, and I had wrapped it in 10 condoms, as per my usual when making love to him.
 
2012-06-05 01:51:11 PM  
You can get herpes even if using a condom. Of more interest was the fact that the dude was 69. Sounds like a gold digger who struck it rich.
 
2012-06-05 01:52:46 PM  
This is why everyone should develop a nice, safe fetish. It's hard to get STDs from high heel shoes, leather gear, Japanese body pillows, or modified Teddy Ruxpins.
 
2012-06-05 01:54:03 PM  
So he
1) knew he had herpes
2) didn't tell her he had herpes
then ..
3) told her he was going to wear a condom
4) didn't really wear a column but let her think he was
then ...
5) she became aware he wasn't wearing a column
6) she became aware he had herpes
7) she contracted herpes

My #8 would be to get a lawyer and get some payback too.

Yeah, this guy is a real asshole and deserves even worse than losing a bunch of money.

What a bastard.
 
2012-06-05 01:54:49 PM  
But the defense attorney disagreed. "Grow up. Come on. You're an adult," he said.

Yeah, that's why she got a lawyer.

"She is not some little innocent victim."

But...she is. The jury just decided that.

And if she isn't innocent, what is she guilty of? Having sex? That's not illegal.

CSB, sort of.

Western woman working in Bangkok hooks up with suave sharp-looking young Western executive.

Drinks. Chat. Smoochy-smoochy.

When it gets to the point of penetration she says "I don't want to catch anything from anybody. I've been clean my whole life and I intend to stay that way."

Mr. Smoothy assures her he is pristine pure, and this being Fark.com you know the rest. She ends up with herpes.

Bangkok: want somebody killed? A thousand bucks. Hire a couple of amphetamine-fueled "cowboys" (they call them that) buzzing through traffic on a motorbike, up beside a limo, POW POW POW goes the .45. Killers thread merrily through traffic. Read about it every day in the blatz.

No, Western girl (scratch/scratch/scratch) didn't do that. But she did hire a couple of toughs to break the guy's legs. All two of them.

Way I figure it, he got off easy (for getting off duplicitously). Herpes, ecchh.

This is why I don't get tested for STDs. Sure, my dick looks like it's been bitten by a rabid cheesegrater-badger cyborg and smells like a urinal cake, but since I don't know that I have an STD I am not culpable. Right?

OK that's some funny shiat right there!

The article isn't clear as to whether she was aware that he changed his mind at the last second or not. If not then the guy is a scumbag. If she did know than tough titties. She's 49. She lived through the AIDS crisis. If she went along with it she deserves nothing.

It can be really hard to get and give many STDs, even if condom's aren't used. Take HIV for example - on treatment that brings you to really low viral load levels, you can become sexually non-infectious.

Morally - I agree, I feel you should disclose anything you can get. But a lot of stuff I've seen in the states has people going to jail for 25+ years for "criminal exposure" of STDs, regardless of whether anything was transmitted to the partner. And that I can't agree with, ever.

I agree. If women can't be held responsible for the consequences of having sex then they shouldn't be allowed to have sex. STDs are just as easily avoided as child support payments are. It is common knowledge on Fark that if you don't want CS, then you need to keep it in your pants. I don't see how STDs are any different.

1) Condoms don't stop herpes

2) Someone can give you herpes even if they have no visible symptons

3) Most people that have genital herpes never develop symptoms but can still pass it on

4) It's estimated 25% (or more) of the population has genital herpes

5) When you ask most doctors for an STD screening they don't include the herpes test (unless you are exhibiting symptoms) because medically speaking it's not in any way detrimental to your health and the knowledge of infection is deemed worse than the actual disease (morbidity factor). That means many people are running around with teh herp thinking they are disease free.

Happy slumming, ya'll!
 
2012-06-05 02:36:26 PM  
You can give somebody herpes while wearing a condom. Conditions have to be just right, like having an outbreak on your sack when you have sex, but it's totally possible.

That doesn't make him any less a douche if he did withhold information about his disease and fake putting on the condom/took it off after a couple pumps/whatever he ended up doing with the damn thing.
