    From the article:

    Sounds like good news to me, and there's a bit more to the article explaining things.


    Now, on the other hand, how do folks feel about these kinds of findings? I mean, up front, I'm glad for them. But then I have to wonder, will finding cures for these diseases help people feel safe having unprotected sex? I know correlation != causation, but still.

    I hope people don't feel safer having unprotected sex. There could be some disease yet to appear in the future. I say better safe than sorry! And if you find the "one" you want to marry, then ask them to get tested before discontinuing the use of condoms, or better yet, before you do it in the first place.
