Gay App Stops Signing Up New Users Over HIV Concerns
« on: January 10, 2019, 02:40:34 pm »
Read this news bit about a gay app trying to weed out underaged profiles etc after HIV was reported to have been acquired ...

Got me thinking thought that the underaged having sex is nothing new, no app changed it .

I was young before the age of phones, apps and wifi and got laid plenty. It was just meeting girls at bars, schools, offices, sheds, cars, swimming pools, the beach, bus stops etc etc etc also it's not new that young people do end up aquiring HIV & STI's etc ...

It's going to happen ... so more (better) education would be/is a start but also I would live it if in my lifetime to see more universally free & easier available Contraception /Protection. So the whole mix Condoms/Pill/PrEP etc etc
