Russian Roulette – let’s try it with three bullets

Update: Sexual Health in my area: Jan 2012

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.”
