Venereal Disease
The Questions, The Answers

Got questions about the Clap? Worried you are hanging out with the girls that are “unclean?” (Funny how guys are never referred to as unclean.) The answers are here. Lots of science and some not-so-subtle blaming of the pill as one of the major causes of STDs.

Obviously, the science is outdated and the use of terms like the Clap or VD are not as common as they were back in the old days.  VD is indeed an old and pervasive germ. The treatment and information shouldn’t be.

  1. I am so glad that “STD” caught on during my high school years, given that my last name initials are VD. My dad had to put up with students calling him “Mr. VD”.

      1. Chancre is a painless ulcer caused by syphilis (treponema pallidum). Chancroid is painful ulceration caused by Haemophilus ducreyi. Very uncommon in the developed world but quite common in developing countries.

  2. Even if they *are* flying breeding grounds for many other diseases, I’m pretty sure most people don’t have sex while on planes. 😛

  3. The Pill did not cause VD to explode. The Pill was never meant to curb STDs anyway, it was meant for pregnancy prevention. Condoms were designed to prevent STDs and they actually work when used correctly. Rant over.

  4. The fact that this was published pre-AIDS Crisis means this should immediately pitched as well.

  5. I’m guessing this was a booklet handed out at the doctor’s office. It looks like a quick read.
