[quote=“jimipresley”][quote=“wiki”]Gonorrhea is caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. The infection is transmitted from one person to another through vaginal, oral, or anal sexual relations, though transmission occurs rarely with safe sex practices of condom usage with lubrication.
Chlamydia can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. It can also be passed to the eye by a hand or other body part moistened with infected secretions. Make sure you use a condom every time you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
Syphilis: Many microbes that cause sexually transmitted infections are transmitted only through exposure to body fluids such as semen or blood; by contrast, the bacterium T. pallidum readily crosses both cut or intact mucosa and cut skin, including body parts that cannot be protected by a condom. Proper and consistent use of a latex condom substantially reduces, but does not completely eliminate, the spread of syphilis through sexual contact.
Syphilis cannot be contracted through toilet seats, daily activities, hot tubs, or sharing eating utensils or clothing.[/quote]
Hepatitis B: Venereal fluids, saliva, and blood.[/quote]
You forgot Herpes.
[quote]Genital herpes may be the largest epidemic no one wants to talk about. An estimated one out of five Americans over the age of 12 quietly harbor a meek but distressing virus that can cause painful and ugly outbreaks on areas that seldom see the light of day.
The silence has as much to do with the disease as concerns over what it can do to a budding romance. Symptoms, at least for most, are either nonexistent or so mild that it’s often nearly impossible to notice an infection. . . .
The disease is potentially contagious before or after noticeable outbreaks, and condoms are less protective than against AIDS, since genital herpes also spreads through skin contact. . . .
Couples who share this information often agree to use condoms, hold off on sex during flare-ups, and avoid skin-to-skin contact around the genital region, which all reduce the risk of transmitting herpes. Some may take prescription drugs that, in addition to relieving symptoms, block some of the viral shedding that causes infections. . .
Herpes sheds on areas of skin that condoms fail to protect, regardless of whether symptoms are visible or not, and at any time. The virus appears most contagious during the first few hours of flare-ups, researchers now believe. But there is no way to predict when these outbreaks will occur. . . [/quote]
