What lots of people don't realize is that Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, in addition to being beautiful, floral names, are actually mortal enemies. Well, not enemies, exactly. I mean, they're not sentient. But they're like flip sides of the same coin, like the characters in that Stephen King book where the guy got carried off by sparrows. Can you imagine that? Being carried off by sparrows? I try to figure that sometimes, think of how many sparrows it would take to lift an average-sized man into the air. And how would the ones who are actually bearing his weight still fly? I mean, I can't imagine their wings could still flap, which I guess means they'd have to be carried themselves by other sparrows. Which in turn means THOSE sparrows couldn't fly. So you'd have a whole flock of sparrows who couldn't flap their wings, which means they really couldn't lift anybody. But, oh well. It's about suspending disbelief, I guess. HAH, suspending. Get it?

Anyway, chlamydia and gonorrhea. So they're, like, each others dark halves. If one of them gets in you, you have it. But if the other one gets in you while you have the first one, it will seek out its enemy and they will do great battle within your immune system. And they will destroy each other. Well, most of the time. Every now and then one of them gets lucky, and manages to outclass its mortal enemy, and when it wins...hooo, boy. It's like in the book where the one twin devoured his other twin in the womb, teeth and all. And he was born this supervillain.

Believe you me, you don't want to be infected by a victorious dose of super Chlamydia that's just devoured a defeated Gonorrhea. That's bad news all over the place. Baaaad news.

geekbikerskum: praymantis: Just a thought but if everyone just used a condom this would not be an issue right?

It would be less of one, but condoms still break, slip off, etc., even when used correctly.

Penile-vaginal and penile-anal intercourse are also not the only transmission routes for gonorrhea and chlamydia, they can also be transmitted via oral-penile, oral-vaginal, or oral-anal contact as well.


...go on...
