How TF does that work?

Romantically interested in other women; not sexually interested in anyone. Seems pretty obvious.

Except that's not what asexual means


It is exactly what asexual means. It means "not having sexual desire".

/ nothing else for them to be concerned about


*facepalm*
The CDC is made up of numerous Centers focusing on everything from Covid and other respiratory infectious diseases to STIs to birth defects to chronic diseases to environmental health.

That literally says that "asexual" includes people who are interested in romantic relationships and you think it supports including lack of romantic interest in the term.  Yes, I think it's safe to say that I don't understand whatever flight of imagination you're calling logic.

The internet age has made finding a partner much easier.  Before dating sites and phone applications, interaction was much more limited to the immediate geographical area and the usual social hangouts.

I have two CDIs.

I'll admit you can meet some pretty cute girls in the STI clinic, but unfortunately I tested negative and didn't need to go back.  They (the staff) seemed to ask lots of drug questions, use slang for needles and stuff.  Never heard those terms.   Must have been "testing" for drug use.   Never had use or  even remember those terms until now.

Every time I think I have it figured out, they change what "it" is. We have expanded definitions to placate .0001% of the population. Not that they don't exist. But it is getting ridiculous. People reading BS on the internet and going "That's Me!". Fark already. You may actually like it.

Not by much. STI's have been gradually increasing since the late 90s-early 2000s. Once HIV and AIDS were no longer a death sentence, people got a lot less stringent about condom use.

Easier as in a better match, not necessarily so WRT the rate of partnering up for the nite or whatever.  Hoein' was still easy AF in all those other decades - it's more of a pickier process now.

The rate of one-nighter partnering has been on the decline for a while FWICR. People expect better matches and don't settle for the kind of dumpy lovin that past generations did.

From the CDC:
HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV is a different virus than HIV and HSV (herpes). There were about 43 million HPV infections in 2018, many among people in their late teens and early 20s. There are many different types of HPV. Some types can cause health problems including genital warts and cancers. But there are vaccines that can stop these health problems from happening.
How is HPV spread?
You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms.
Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you have had sex with only one person. You also can develop symptoms years after you have sex with someone who is infected. This makes it hard to know when you first became infected.
Does HPV cause health problems?
In most cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems. But when HPV does not go away, it can cause health problems like genital warts and cancer.
Genital warts usually appear as a small bump or group of bumps in the genital area. They can be small or large, raised or flat, or shaped like a cauliflower. A healthcare provider can usually diagnose warts by looking at the genital area.
Does HPV cause cancer?
HPV can cause cervical and other cancers including cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, or anus. It can also cause cancer in the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils (called oropharyngeal cancer).
Cancer often takes years, even decades, to develop after a person gets HPV. The types of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the same as the types of HPV that can cause cancers.
There is no way to know which people who have HPV will develop cancer or other health problems. People with weak immune systems (including those with HIV/AIDS) may be less able to fight off HPV. They may also be more likely to develop health problems from HPV

Yez it is jackals. You don't get to tell other people what they are. Asexual, lack of sexual interest, does not imply a lack of desire.for emotional romantic connection.

Asexuality is a spectrum.  One can be romantically attracted without having any interest in the physical parts.  Or one can only feel sexually attracted to people after there is an emotional bond.

Getting an STI is just as much, if more a sin than being poor. They unironically show this as more proof of amorality. It's the seat belt costing more lives than it saves argument, but for sex.

Almost everyone has herpes type 1, it's just usually asymptomatic. If you have ever had a cold sore and performed oral sex, your partner has herpes.

You probably got it from your parents kissing you on or near the mouth as a baby. Congratulations, you got herpes from your parents.
