She met a guy that she really likes and he told her upfront that he has an STD.Now I am not going to go into the semantics of what he has, but lets just say its not curable.Did he think that since it was a hookup, and not a serious relationship, that divulging such information was not essential?We don’t know all of the details of this situation, but either way, a person should always disclose their health status before they engage in sex — unprotected or protected.That was the first moment I thought that I might have a normal life. Firstly, it was painful and gross, and then I was worried about the implications it'd have on my then-relationship and potential future relationships. And I felt incredibly stupid and ashamed, like I could have avoided it if I had just been more careful and, oh, I dunno, refused oral sex from my then-boyfriend whenever he had even the slightest hint of a cold sore. I've always practiced safe sex, so it felt really unfair, aside from anything else.
