Russian Roulette – let’s try it with three bullets
One Genito Urinary Professional treated around 2500 people for more than 16 different Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) last year.
She was, however, shocked by this fact – 29,000 people in Doncaster had Chlamydia last year – 10% of the total population.
So, filtering out sexually inactive, old and young, sexually faithful and celibates, I calculate that the statistic my youth work sexual health team used for the last few years was about right.
‘Promiscuous’ encounters without condoms lead to a
50/50 chance of getting an STI.’
That’s Russian Roulette with three bullets in the cylinder.
She also told us abou a regular client who toured the world, and would take the offer of not using a condom. She queried his nonchalance.
“We call it HIV Roulette.”
