All information is courtesy of "On Sex and Human Loving", Masters
and Johnson Copyright 1985. All typos are mine, but sadly, this
newsreader doesn't have a spell checker on it. Further info on
the development times and the percentage of asymptomatic cases of
AIDS would be appreciated...
Transmission: Intercourse, fellatio, anal sex, cunnilingus,
kissing (infrequently) Women run a roughly
50% chance of contracting the disease after
one session of intercourse, men 20-25%.
MALE Symptoms: Yellowish discharge from the penis. Painful,
frequent urination. Symptoms develop from two
to thirty days after infection. Roughly 10%
of men have no symptoms.
Later stages of the infection may move into
the prostate, seminal vesicles, and
epididymis, causing severe pain and fever.
Untreated, gonorrhea can lead to sterility in
a small minority of cases.
UPDATE: Traditionally, gonorrhea in the male was
thought to be a symptomatic disease as
described above. More recently it has been
recognized that a significant number of males
have asymptomatic gonorrhea. As asymptomatic
infections can lead to the same complications
as symptomatic infections and can be
transmitted in the same way, it is important
for men to realize that an exposure needs to
be investigated whether or not there are
symptoms. Also, a complication of gonorrhea
not mentioned above is septic arthritis
(infected joint). While the infection itself
is easy to treat, this can severely damage
the involved joint (often the knee) leading
to a permanent disability.
FEMALE Symptoms: Under half of women with gonorrhea show no
symptoms, or symptoms so mild they are
commonly ignored. Early symptoms include
increased vaginal discharge, irritation of
the external genitals, pain or burning on
urination and abnormal menstrual bleeding.
Women who are untreated may develop severe
complications. The infection will usually
spread to the uterus, Fallopian tubes, and
ovaries, causing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
(PID). PID, though not only caused by
gonorrhea, is the most common cause of female
infertility. Early symptoms of PID are lower
abdominal pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, and
pain during intercourse.
Transmission: Nominally sexual contact, but can be
transmitted by blood transfusion or from an
infected pregnant woman to her fetus.
PRIMARY STAGE: A chancre sore develops at the site of
infection from two to four weeks after
infection has occurred. The chancre is
painless 75% of the time. The chancre starts
as a dull red spot, turns into a pimple,
which ulcerates, forming a round or oval sore
with a red rim. The sore heals in 4-6 weeks -
however, the infection is still present. The
chancre is usually found on the genitals or
anus, but can appear on any part of the skin.
SECOND STAGE: One week to six months after the chancre
heals. Pale red or pinkish rash appears
(often on palms or soles) fever, sore throat,
headaches, joint pains, poor appetite, weight
loss, hair loss. Moist sores may appear
around the genitals or anus and are highly
infectious. Symptoms usually last three to
six months, but can come and go.
LATENT STAGE: No apparent symptoms, and the carrier is no
longer contagious. However, the organism is
insinuating itself into the host's tissues.
50 to 70 percent of carriers pass the rest of
their lives without the disease leaving this
stage. The reminder pass into Third Stage
THIRD STAGE: Serious heart problems, eye problems, brain
and spinal cord damage, with a high
probability of paralysis, insanity, blindness
While all of the symptoms mentioned are possible (as well as
others), it usually manifests with a limited number of these
symptoms at any one time (often just one). In the past, syphilis
was known as the great imitator because it could resemble almost
any known illness (It was said that "To know syphilis was to know
medicine.") Modern diagnostic techniques now make this a much
simpler disease to diagnose, especially in the early stages. The
statement in the FAQ that later stages of syphilis are not
curable is IMHO wrong. There is some controversy on this point in
treating advanced neurosyphilis, but I believe this represents
difficulties in evaluating the effectiveness of treatment in the
short term in these patients. I believe patients who are not
successfully treated represent treatment failures not incurable
disease. Having said this, let me point out that damage by the
disease prior to treatment is not reversible, although it is
Transmission: Generally by sexual contact. Direct contact
with infected genitals can cause transmission
via intercourse, rubbing genitals together,
oral genital contact, anal sex, or oral anal
contact. In addition, normally protected
areas of skin can become infected if there is
a cut, rash, sore. Herpes viruses can be
spread in some instances by kissing, if one
participant has the infection sited in or
near the mouth.
Symptoms: Herpes is marked by clusters of small,
painful blisters on the genitals. After a few
days, the blisters burst, leaving small
ulcers. In men, the blisters usually appear
on the penis, but can appear in the urethra
In women, they usually appear on the labia,
but can appear on the cervix and anal area.
First outbreaks are accompanied by fever,
headache, and muscle soreness for two or more
consecutive days in 39% of men and 68% of
women. Other relatively common symptoms
include painful urination discharge from the
urethra or vagina, and tender, swollen lymph
nodes in the groin. These symptoms tend to
disappear within two weeks. Aseptic
meningitis occurs in 8 percent of cases, eye
infections in 1% of cases, and infection of
the cervix in 88% of infected women. Skin
lesions last on average 16.5 days in men,
19.7 in women. Secondary symptoms are most
prominent in the first four days and then
Recurrence: None in 10% of cases. Frequency for the
remaining population is from once a month to
once every few years. The majority of
sufferers do not have repeat attacks after a
few years. Most repeat attacks are less
severe than the initial attack.
AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome)
Transmission: Sexual contact, sharing IV needles, blood
transfusion (Note that blood is now routinely
screened for HIV) Note also that the HIV
virus is significantly less likely to be
transmitted than the gonorrhea or syphilis
Symptoms: No single pattern exists. Most common
symptoms are progressive, inexplicable weight
loss, persistent fever, swollen lymph nodes,
and reddish purple coin sized spots on the
skin (These spots are Kaposi's sarcoma, a
form of cancer) When symptoms appear, they
may remain unchanged for months, or may be
followed by any one of a number of
opportunistic infections. Typically these
include pneumocystis carinii, an unusual form
of pneumonia, fungal infections,
tuberculosis, and various herpes forms.
Treatment may fend off these infections,
however the typical course is for one
overwhelming infection to follow another
until the victim succumbs due to the immune
system's failure to return to a normal state,
and hence, the opportunistic infection's
relative freedom to wreak havoc on the
victim's systems. It is possible for AIDS to
be asymptomatic for prolonged periods of time
while still being contagious.
On the significance of symptoms of HIV
separate from infections:
While most AIDS patients do eventually die
of/with various opportunistic infections, the
significance of the chronic wasting can not
be ignored. In the early days of AIDS, there
were patients that by current definitions
clearly had AIDS, but were never classified
as such since they died of the "dwindles"
before acquiring an opportunistic infection
that would have made that diagnosis.
Also, there has been much discussion of the
minimal time until HIV seroconversion. It
should be noted that patients with advanced
HIV disease can become "HIV negative" as they
lose the ability to make antibodies to HIV
(this does not represent an improvement in
the condition). A final comment on HIV: the
opportunistic infections encountered in HIV
infection are generally acquired common
environmental pathogens or acquired from the
host themselves. This is why HIV wards do not
serve to infect all occupants with all
Pubic Lice (Crabs)
Transmission: Nominally through sexual contact, however
they may be picked up through use of sheets,
towels or clothing used by an infected
Symptoms: Intense itching, usually felt mostly at
night. Some victims have no symptoms, others
may develop an allergic rash.
Nonspecific Urethritis (NSU)
(Most commonly - Chlamydia trachomatous and T. mycoplasma)
Transmission: Some cases are allergic or chemical
reactions, and are not transmitted per se.
Others are through sexual contact.
Symptoms: Similar to gonorrhea but usually milder.
Urethral discharge is generally thin and
clear. Some cases are asymptomatic.
Also: This can also precipitate a condition called
Reiter's syndrome in susceptible persons.
The Facts on Hepatitis B
What is Hepatitis B?
Hepatitis B, a potentially deadly, sexually transmitted disease,
is not selective about who it infects: anyone can get hepatitis
B. Yet, even though it affects the lives of hundreds of thousands
in the United States, most people know very little about this
The hepatitis B virus has been spreading rapidly in the United
States, with 14 Americans dying each day from hepatitis B-related
illnesses. Chances are you know at least one person with
hepatitis B because one in 20 Americans has been infected with
Why is Hepatitis B Called a Sexually Transmitted Disease?
Hepatitis B is not commonly thought of as a sexually transmitted
disease. The fact is that it is commonly spread through sex, just
like AIDS, syphilis, herpes and gonorrhea. The number of
Americans who have contracted hepatitis B through sex has almost
doubled in the last decade.
Who Can get Hepatitis B?
Because it is extremely contagious--100 times more contagious
than AIDS--anyone can get hepatitis B. But you are in even
greater danger if:
o you have had more than one sexual partner in the last six
o you have had unprotected sex (without a condom)
o you or your partner have ever been diagnosed with a sexually
transmitted disease (such as herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis,
chlamydia, genital warts or AIDS)
o you or your partner have had sexual contact with someone who
has had hepatitis B, or someone who is in one of the
categories listed above
What Are the Symptoms?
About half of those who get hepatitis B will suffer from an
inflammation of the liver, called acute hepatitis. Many people
with hepatitis B mistake the symptoms for other illnesses, such
as the flu, while others are more seriously affected and may miss
school or work for months. Some of the symptoms caused by
hepatitis B are:
o mild, flu-like illness
o skin rashes and arthritis
o loss of appetite
o abdominal pain
o jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and skin)
What Happens if I Get Hepatitis B?
Those who become chronically infected with hepatitis B have
substantially higher risk of developing liver cancer than the
general population. But even if you don't get liver cancer, the
effects of hepatitis B infection can be so severe that you may
not be able to go to school or work for several months.
Then there are those who don't even know they have hepatitis B.
We call them the "silent carriers". This group of symptomless
carriers can pass the disease on to countless others unknowingly
(and may eventually get very ill themselves).
NOTE: THERE IS NO KNOWN CURE FOR HEPATITIS B although there is a
vaccine. Ask a physician for more information.
After May 1, you can call 1-800-HEP-B-873 for referral to a
physician near you who can answer questions.
Because the transmission of different STDs are not independent,
persons who acquire _any_ STD are at considerably greater risk
(epidemiologically) of acquiring other STDs. Persons diagnosed
with one STD should be examined for other STDs at that time
(Multiple infections are possible!!!). Persons who have ever had
a STD (except lice, "crabs") should be aware of whatever was done
that led them to acquire that STD.
It is now recommended that all children receive the vaccine. It
has been shown to be effective and is administered in 3 doses.
The current version is made using recombinant DNA techniques and
does NOT carry the potential for infection with other diseases,
as previous vaccines did. Currently, any adult with potential
occupational exposure to HB are suggested to receive the vaccine
(for example, health care workers, ambulance personnel). However,
there is a movement towards vaccinating all individuals [as is
economically possible] since the vaccine is very safe [no known
serious adverse reactions] and HB can be potentially fatal.
c7-4. What are venereal warts? treatment?
Venereal warts: incurable, but treatable
It's unfortunate that these viral infections can't be cured and I
don't even know if the treatment is sufficient, but I guess
there's nothing that can be done about it. I would like to stress
that unprotected sex with a new partner REGARDLESS of whether or
not there are any signs of warts is strongly discouraged.
There are a few treatments out there: liquid nitrogen, electro-
cauterization, laser cauterization, topical creams and liquids.
Liquid nitrogen: can be painful, but not from the
treatment itself. In order for the warts
to stop re-appearing, your body must
first recognize the problem and form
antibodies against it. As long as the
antibodies keep the virus from
advancing, they will be less likely to
show up. Also, this prevents the virus
from spreading SOMEWHAT. It's like a flu
virus. If no physical symptoms show up,
you are unlikely to spread it. However,
like the flu, if symptoms do occur and
warts show up, it shows that your body's
defenses have let down their guard
temporarily and let that virus advance.
To get your immune system to concentrate
on the area, you must first damage the
skin in some way, such as liquid
nitrogen. This is the painful part: in
addition to freezing the warts, you must
burn the surrounding skin area to get
your T-cells to concentrate on the area.
This helps your body to control the
Electrocauterization: same thing, but instead of freezing
them, it burns them off electrically and
cauterizes ("seals") the skin so that no
open wounds are present. First the
immediate infected area is numbed (small
needle prick and pain is over) and then
they are burned off. Pretty simple and
more preferable to liquid nitrogen.
Laser: haven't heard much about this, but I
would assume that it is more costly than
electro or liquid nitro. Probably uses
the same technique as electro, but with
more precision and less pain.
Topical creams: Painless, greaseless, topical creams can
be helpful for some cases. EFUDEX 5% is
probably at the top of the treatment
cream list at this time. Supposedly
works within 1 month and acts to kill
the foreign tissue. I don't know if the
rate of recurrence is higher for creams
or cauterization, but that rate is
definitely present and depends on how
well your body first reacts to the
virus. If more antibodies are made and
you don't have much stress in your life,
you should be ok. More stress on the
body or other illnesses can cause the
virus to pop right back up again. You
only have one immune system, and your
body is host to many viruses. It's
difficult to fight all of them at the
Liquids: In addition to the cream mentioned
above, there are liquids that can be
injected into the area which act as
acids and dissolve the warts. The cream
mentioned above is recommended for warts
inside the urethra or vagina where you
can still see them. A cystoscopy
(lighted microscope inserted into the
urethra) is recommended to make sure
there are no others deeper inside. There
are liquids for getting at these deeper-
Podophyllin (po-DAH-fill-in) is usually
injected into the urethra and basically
works to make the virus regress and
dissolve the existing warts.
Trichloroacetic acid is much more
painful and powerful in cases of
urethral blockage. Not recommended for
Thiotepa (thi-uh-TEE-puh) is another one
used for basically the same purpose.
These, however, are only used where the
warts can't be seen, so after the
cystoscopy, your doctor will probably
recommend one of these anyways.
As I said, there is no cure; the virus is still present even
though there may be no physical signs. I'm still not sure as to
the general scope of the rates of recurrence, but as far as I
know, there is definitely a possibility of recurrence. Consult a
UROLOGIST at first signs of any infections, don't wait for the
symptoms to go away. Almost every STD has symptoms that
eventually fade out, but that doesn't mean that your body has
conquered it. It may come back in other areas and cause

Nominally, the failure rates for contraceptive methods are
expressed as "number of pregnancies per one hundred user couples
per year" Thus of one hundred couples who used condoms as a birth
control method, two experienced unwanted pregnancies in one year.
Below are reproduced the failure rates for typical contraceptive
methods. My source for this is the tome "Sex A User's Manual"
published by The Diagram Group. (Berkeley Publishing Group, New
York c 1981) The list of credited contributors includes Toni
Bellefield, Medical Information Officer, Family Planning
Information Service, and D.B. Garrioch, MD, MRCOG, Senior
Registrar in Gynecology, St. Thomas' Hospital, London.
Actual failure rate - number of pregnancies per 100
couples per year of use, includes
conception due to user's failing to
use the method properly, as well as
through method failures.
Theoretical failure rate - number of pregnancies expected per
100 couples per year of use,
allowing only for failure of the
method to function when used
properly. Condoms breaking for no
apparent reason, etc, are method

It is to be noted that this data is rather old, and therefore
omits one crucial form of birth control currently available - the
low dose pill. Low dose birth control pills are a more
sophisticated development of the combined pill, and function in
essentially the same way, but do not require as high an overall
dose of hormones per month, thus reducing side effects
considerably. Low dose pills may also be taken right up til
menopause, whereas it is recommended that the combined or mini
pills be discontinued around age 40-45.
The rate I remember for "No birth control" was somewhere on the
order of 80%, however, that is for a statistical sample over
time, not for "one fuck".
>I believe some women also have strong allergic reactions to
>spermicides. I would (personally) say they are a poor choice.
Independently, they are, but bear in mind that spermicides are
absolutely necessary to the functioning of some forms of birth
control - even a well fitted diaphragm is pretty much useless
without spermicidal jelly.
Has a failure rate of 2% (i.e. out of 100 women who primarily use
the diaphragm, two become pregnant). Always use spermicide; both
partners _must_ learn how to place it properly. It has few
associated risks; it cannot become 'lost' because the vagina is
only a few inches long. Can 'slip' and press against the rectum;
this can be uncomfortable. Also, some men can feel the diaphragm
during intercourse. Some women have recurrent yeast infections
when using the diaphragm.
The average diaphragm costs about 20-30 dollars, but it must
first be sized and fitted by a gynecologist, so there is the cost
of a doctor's fee. Must be replaced every two years to ensure
correct fit and product lifespan. A tube of Gynol II costs around
11 dollars and is good for 24 doses of spermicide.
The major disadvantage to the diaphragm is that it must be used
one of two ways; either it is inserted before any sort of sexual
play, in which case the taste of spermicide can become an issue
if the couple wishes to engage in oral sex, or is inserted after
oral sex but before intercourse, which can be considered a major
interruption of play and may lead to not using it all.
(SOURCE: "The New Our Bodies, Ourselves" The Boston Women's
Health Book Collective, 1984. Pgs 225-228.)
A personal observation: Omaha and I rely on the diaphragm as our
primary birth control. As mentioned, she does have recurrent
yeast infection, but we both agree this is a minimal compared to
the intense, suicidal depression that came when she mixed birth
control pills and her epilepsy medication.
We are both fond of oral sex, so we use the diaphragm in the
latter way described in paragraph three. We have never failed to
used it; insertion of the diaphragm has become a major part of
our play, a way of saying "I love you, I care about you, I _will_
be responsible with your body" during lovemaking.
The diaphragm, it _must_ be remembered, is _not_ an effective
method of STD control; only a condom can do that. The diaphragm
is a reproduction control method for primary partners only!
c8-2. What kinds of condoms are there?
(from: Steven Sharp, firstname.lastname@example.org)
This is a posting of information about types of condoms which are
significantly larger or smaller than average. I got it out of a
book called "The Condom Book" or something similarly imaginative.
One thing that was apparent from reading through the descriptions
was that advertising on size (or for that matter thickness or
ribbing or whatever) is often misleading. A brand which is
claimed to be smaller than average frequently isn't outside the
normal variation. There may also be differences in size based on
variations in manufacturing and these figures were probably based
on single samples. Different size measurements for different
styles of the same brand may indicate such variations or be an
attempt to provide some size variation, in which case getting the
precise style named is important. All measurements are flat and
don't take into account elasticity, which might influence comfort
when worn. Typical condom flat widths range from 2" to 2-1/8"
(meaning two and one eighth, not two minus an eight). All the
condoms listed here are both lubricated and reservoir ended.
Company names are listed in parentheses. Extra words which may
appear in the name on some packages are listed in square

other disclaimer noises).
