ZeroCorpse: skantea: How many strains of genital herpes are there? And do you get a trophy if you collect them all?According to his autobiography (which is a surprisingly good read) he never got an STD on the job after doing more than a thousand films. He was just lucky, particular about his partners-- despite appearances-- and meticulous about cleaning up when the job was done. He always advocated testing, and he believes condoms would kill the business-- He says actors don't mind wearing them, but viewers don't want to see them. They ruin the fantasy.Either way, he's not the right guy to pick if you want to make an STD joke. He has remained clean all these years.

Smirky the Wonder Chimp: Happy Hours: Radak: Lionel Mandrake: Great news...now I can get back to work as his stand-in.I'm not sure what's more disturbing, that you want to be a human tripod or that you think people would look kindly upon you if you could pass for Ron Jeremy./met him once, actually. Nice guy.I've never met him, but a few Farkers like you have claimed to and all have said he was very nice but way back when 15-20 years ago I heard the exact opposite - also on the internet so take that for what it's worth.Maybe what I read was written by someone with an axe to grind who hated him - or maybe he's changed. At any rate, the account I initially read about him was that he was a free-loading slob who disrespected everyone. It's been a long time so I won't try to make up details to fill in the blanks that I don't remember but it was not a very flattering description of him as a person - much like his hedgehog-like body.He's definitely a legend and an American icon though and I wish him well. I do appreciate the many forgotten starlets more though. Face it, most of us weren't watching the movies he was in to see him.Some of them aren't so forgotten, fortunately.[photos.exposay.com image 392x621]
Happy Hours: I've had real life experiences where I blew off wearing one and others where I left a strange girl in my apartment and told her I'd be back in 10 minutes as I went to get one. I didn't think there was an appreciable difference in pleasure in the very short term but I felt a whole lot better the next morning when I knew I significantly reduced my risk of catching anything.I've learned my lesson a long time ago. I'm fully stocked up on condoms because you never know when you may need one.I have a theory that if everyone in the world either insisted on using condoms (even if they occasionally did break) until and unless they knew their partner were disease free and stayed in a monogamous relationship that we could eliminate at least most STDs. I see no plausible reason why this wouldn't work. I don't mean most of us, I mean every single human being on the face of the earth. One bad apple can spoil the bunch.
scubamage: Your theory would be wrong so long as people got chicken pox and shingles. They're the same virus as herpes. And HPV runs rampant too even without sexual contact.However, it would probably diminish the spread of HIV, and the clap.
NephilimNexus: I wonder if he collected workman's comp? I mean, think about it.
KrispyKritter: The man is a God dog.
loanguy: I've been around other "celebrities" who were far less tolerant of "people" approaching them (though one time I was on a flight with Orville Redenbacher and someone went up to him and he handed them a card that said "I had a personal encounter with Orville Redenbacher" which I thought was clever:)
