Where I live in CA small city, there haven't been any new cases of covid for a month. I got my first booster a couple of days ago. I think Covid will be endemic and mild as cold from now on. Last Thursday a friend of mine died. She had been suffering with what she thought was a long covid. She lost the ability to smell or taste anything and had brain fog, anxiety, and paranoia for a year. then she started to have problems talking and walking. They did a brain scan and it turned out to be an aggressive malignant brain tumor. They tried to do a biopsy and she had a brain bleed and never woke up.

Monkeypox outbreak may get 10 TIMES bigger: UK's Covid lockdown architects warn 'major' epidemic is 'highly likely' as health chiefs log 200 more cases of tropical virus

he claim was made by a group of top experts, including members of the same Government advisory committee behind gloomy models used to justify lockdown restrictions.

London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine researchers argued it is 'highly likely' that another 10,000 people would be sickened with the tropical virus worldwide.

The modelling suggested, however, that any surge in cases among groups other than gay and bisexual men was 'unlikely'.

Dozens of countries, including the US, Spain and Germany, have been struck by the outbreak — the biggest ever detected outside of Africa to date. Almost all of infections so far have been spotted in the men who have sex with other men community.

Authorities are desperately to contain the tropical virus, amid fears it could become endemic in Europe.

British health bosses reported another 219 infections today, bringing the UK total to 793. London is the country's virus hotspot.

UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) officials confirmed 216 of the new cases were detected in England, while two were spotted in Scotland and one was confirmed in Northern Ireland.

The scientists behind the monkeypox modelling include Professor John Edmunds, an LSHTM epidemiologist who was among the most outspoken SAGE members during the Covid outbreak.

Two other study authors are also Government advisers, sitting on the notorious SPI-M modelling committee. It warned of up to 6,000 deaths per day in the run-up to the Christmas just gone, despite the actual peak being 20 times lower.

Without tough interventions, they also warned Omicron could potentially cause daily hospitalisations to breach 10,000 — quadruple the figure that happened in reality.

In their latest modelling, Professor Edmunds and other LSHTM scientists looked at how monkeypox could keep spreading.

Their estimates were based on sexual partnership data in the UK, gathered from a survey of 45,000 people that is conducted every decade.

Monkeypox, which will be renamed because of claims that it is discriminatory towards Africa, is not normally a sexually-transmitted infection.

But it is thought to be the main mode of transmission in the ongoing outbreak.

The virus, first discovered in lab monkeys in the 1950s, can also be spread through touching clothing, bedding or towels used by someone who is infected.

At the time of the modelling on May 31, 728 confirmed and suspected cases had been reported worldwide in more than 25 countries. Since then, almost 3,000 infections have been logged worldwide.

The results, published on pre-print website medRxiv, show that without interventions or changes in sexual behaviour, it is 'highly likely' that a 'major outbreak' would be seen among men who have sex with men.

Man gets painful, drug-resistant ‘super gonorrhea’ on international vacation

An Austrian man reportedly caught a new drug-resistant strain of the sexually transmitted disease after having relations with a sex worker in Cambodia.

According to the World Health Organization, ”super gonorrhea” refers to a strain that has a high level of resistance to currently recommended treatments.

If multidrug-resistant strains of gonorrhea start to spread, many cases of the STD might become untreatable.

A report published last week in Eurosurveillance warned that the new strain could pose a “major global public health threat,” according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

The report detailed that the man in his 50s had unprotected sex with a female sex worker in Cambodia in April 2022 and, five days later, he experienced pain while urinating and witnessed a discharge coming out of his penis.

He was given antibiotics, which resolved the symptoms, but more testing still showed a positive result, so he was further treated with an antibiotic containing penicillin called co-amoxiclav.

According to the Mayo Clinic, if left untreated, gonorrhea can cause infertility in both women and men, can increase the risk of HIV/AIDS or could spread to the joints and other areas of the body.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gonorrhea is one of the most commonly reported sexually transmitted infections in the United States.

The CDC estimates one in five people in the US has a sexually transmitted infection.

British Airways crew is put in isolation over monkeypox fears after one tests positive for the infection in Singapore

An entire British Airways crew has been put into isolation in Singapore after one of them caught monkeypox.

The two pilots and nine stewards and stewardesses have all been put in quarantine for 21 days, it is understood.

Health officials detected the infection in one steward when staff were tested after landing on Sunday evening.

A BA insider said: 'One of them had it, so they impounded the whole crew. Now they have got to spend 21 days in quarantine.

'Everyone has been told not to talk about it – but it's all everyone is talking about.'

The flight is on British Airways' flagship London to Sydney route, which goes via Singapore.

The crew are believed to have completed the outward journey and had a 24-hour stopover in the Australian city.

The positive test reportedly came when they were on their way back to the UK.

A BA spokesman said: 'We're working closely with the Singapore Health Authorities and have offered assistance with any information they require.'

It comes as the UK Health Security Agency advised that thousands of men at high risk of getting monkeypox should be offered a vaccine.

R77 Reading through the limited studies since the outbreak began I haven't seen a single case that has not been spread through prolonged direct physical contact. it's probably also important to note that the cases in Europe and America have presented differently than the cases in Africa. Perhaps a different strain? The ones in Europe in America are manifesting in ways the STDs usually do. Lesions on genitals and in the rectum. Spread almost exclusively with sexual activity.

British tourist, 30, is loaded into a Chinook helicopter in a sealed capsule after being ‘diagnosed with monkeypox’ on Greek island of Naxos

A 30-year-old British tourist in Greece was rushed to hospital in a sealed capsule over fears they have monkeypox.

A video shows the moment the Brit is loaded onto a helicopter on the Greek island of Naxos, before they were flown to Athens.

According to ANT1, the tourist was on vacation on the island of Cyclades, when he first showed symptoms.

The National Public Health Organization was immediately notified and the suspicious case was transported by Chinook helicopter on Tuesday afternoon.

The patient will remain for treatment at Attica Hospital for the next 20 days at least to undergo further examinations in a controlled environment, local outlets reported.

On June 8, Greece detected its first case of the monkeypox virus infection in a traveller.

As of June 15 the nation only had two reported cases, while the UK's figure has rocketed over 800 cases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Florida health officials are warning of a “historic” meningococcal outbreak among gay and bisexual men that has killed seven and severely sickened 24 others.

The alarming surge in cases had led the CDC to recommend vaccines for all gay and bisexual men in the Sunshine State.

The agency characterized the ongoing transmissions “as one of the worst outbreaks of meningococcal disease among gay and bisexual men in US history.”

The bacteria can spread through saliva and transmission requires close contact, health officials said.

Kissing or being near an infected party that coughs can cause an infection.

“Meningococcal disease can affect anyone and can be deadly and includes infections of the lining of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and bloodstream,” the CDC said in a statement.

Strikes, thunderstorms, and now MONKEYPOX! Glastonbury revellers are warned of skin-to-skin contact danger by health chiefs as the music event returns for the first time in three years after Covid delays

The UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) has now urged the 20,000 people who are set to descend on the site for the five-day-long festival to be mindful of the disease as case numbers in the UK continue to rise.

So far 793 people in the UK have tested positive for the virus, with the vast majority of these cases being found in England, and in gay and bisexual men.

Earlier this month the World Health Organisation (WHO) warned that festivals in Europe this summer could act as super spreading events for the disease.

Thousands of people queued at the entrance to the farm yesterday morning, eager to start five days of partying and ready to enjoy a star-studded line-up of music acts including headliners Billie Eilish, Sir Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.

And the first day saw crowds bathed in glorious sunshine, as the British summer welcomed revellers back to Somerset for the first time since 2019.

People both young and old and from all parts of the UK - and some even from abroad - descended on the farm near Shepton Mallet, powering through the ongoing national rail strike that has paralysed train networks across the country.

Dressed in brightly coloured clothes and enjoying the festival atmosphere, those who got there early showed no signs of letting the strike ruin their good mood.

The festival's main stage will not open until Friday, with headliner Billie Eilish set for the iconic Pyramid Stage followed by Sir Paul McCartney on Saturday and rapper Kendrick Lamar bringing the event to a close on Sunday.

However, DJs and live music is planned from today for eager fans who have arrived at the site early - as more than 200,000 people are expected to descend at Glastonbury over the next two days.

New York City began offering vaccination against monkeypox to at-risk groups on Thursday, as authorities scramble to contain a global outbreak.

But demand was so high, within hours of launching the program the city had to cut off walk-in appointments, and scheduled visits were already booked through early next week.

Ask Tim Hickernell how he's doing and the New York City man will tell you he has "seen better days" as he works to recover from a bout of monkeypox, a rare disease usually confined to Africa that is now seeing its largest-ever outbreak in the United States.

The actor is one of at least 30 people who have tested positive for the virus in New York City since early May. Almost all of the NYC cases, which represent more than 20% of the total diagnosed nationwide in the latest outbreak, involve men having sex with men.

Being treated for a systemic bacterial or viral infection does not mean you come out as good as new. There are residual effects on your body, the least of which is increased resistance to the treatments in future.

Slut shaming aside, condoms, or not, this virus would still be spreading on account of the close contact of the men alone. The only difference may be that the pox usually do not present in and around the anus and genital area.

The men have lesions on hands, mouths, chin, entire faces, arms, trunk, and legs. It isn't only confined to erogenous zones.

^I think the problem is that most people are already infectious long before they have lesions on hands, mouths, arms etc. WTF would have sex or make out with someone who has bloody lesions all over their body?

A scientist discussed that we could still stop the spread if high-risk-groups were abstinent for a couple of months, immediately ban high-risk events and close locations and simultaneously vax high-risk groups. Of course this won't happen. Gay rights groups would scream discrimination and people will never voluntarily change their behavior.

NYC health chiefs are blasted for last-minute roll out of monkeypox vaccines just two days before Pride weekend, as scores of walk-ins are turned away on the second day of inoculations

Yesterday the city became the first in the U.S. to start offering the jab to the most 'at risk' gay or bisexual men.

But within three hours of launching the drive it was forced to suspend walk-ins due to 'high demand', and all appointments were booked solid until Monday.

At least 100 men queued for the jab this morning, with many not having bookings arriving up to two hours before the clinic opened. But all walk-ins were turned away and told to check online for new slots.

Chris LeBron, a Democrat candidate for the New York State Assembly, slammed the 'pop-up' inoculation and slammed the city's health commissioner Dr Ashwin Vasan for failing to turn up to monitor the vaccinations.

Men waiting to get inoculated today said it was 'ridiculous' that only 1,000 doses were available in a city of eight million. Others slammed health officials for giving 'contradictory' information on how to get jabbed.

Many of those who got the vaccine today expressed their relief, saying they would now be able to enjoy the Pride weekend safely — which is expected to draw crowds numbering more than two million. One man even left the clinic telling a friend, 'we can make out tonight!'

I got mine in Toronto last Thursday. Hopefully the campaign there will go some way to interrupting the spread. Pride was this weekend. There were similar campaigns in Ottawa and Montreal. Montreal was the epicentre. Ottawa gays will go to Montreal Pride. Montrealers and Torontonians shuttle between Prides during the month. It's not just whoring, but gathering close. Breathing, skin-to-skin... get a bunch of shirtless guys in a thumpa thumpa techno trance streaming dance party happening and you could spread it there too.

Out of the gate, there was so much hand wringing about shaming, instead of acknowledging given the chance, most gays gonna fuck. And its June. They should have got out in front of this but inclusion and all that malarky probably caused a lot of pointless delay, but that's public health for you. I don't think there are many firm, decisive, realistic leaders in public health... a bunch of do gooders. Which is great. If things are good.

Scientists said the latest strain of monkeypox, once previously confined to parts of Africa, has about 50 genetic variations compared to related viruses that circulated in 2018-2019. They found the virus is continuing to evolve during the current outbreak, including a number of small changes in the genetic code, minor gene variants and a deleted gene, according to a study published in Nature Medicine on Friday.

In the past, monkeypox hasn’t spread easily from person to person. It’s still unclear how the mutations seen in the current monkeypox virus might change any of those attributes, or the severity of the disease it causes.

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that the virus has replicated up to 12 times its expected pace since 2018.

Back in December, all we had to worry about was Covid. Now we have mpox on top of that, and that little hussy's continual hooking up with guys from grindr and quite possibly rentboys is making him and the entire complex vulnerable to mpox.

R217, based on my experience in Toronto I had to fill in a registration with my name and address etc. and provide my Ontario health card number. They track vaccine delivery carefully everywhere, mostly to understand adverse events and contribute to the research on the medication in question.

We don't have the undocumented populations that the states have so there may not be provision for undocumented - it isn't a big population and would be even smaller if your risk category is gay men. During COVID there was a no questions asked policy but it's not the default and takes the direction of the provincial system.

I don't say it's impossible but it does seem unlikely, especially given the quantities of vaccine available (which are low). Remember, during COVID the U.S. had tons of vaccine but wasn't rushing to share internationally in the early going and understandably so. Quid pro quo.

The best advice I can give you would be to call the public health unit in either Toronto or Montreal and ask if they will vaccinate Americans. Montreal had a very liberal eligibility threshold but I don't know if that would apply to foreigners. Toronto, as usual, just sort of stumbles along earnestly and marginally effectively.

UK's monkeypox outbreak passes 1,000 cases: Milestone reached as virus continues to spread among gay and bi men — but gloomy model warns of 60,000 cases a DAY by Christmas

UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) bosses said there had been 1,076 infections as of Sunday, almost double the number a fortnight ago.

Authorities said they expect cases to continue to rise further in the coming days and are advising anyone going to large events or having sex with new partners to 'be alert' for symptoms.

Other scientists do not expect the virus to ever reach the heights of Covid waves because monkeypox requires prolonged close contact or contaminated surfaces to spread.

Announcing Britain's new cases today, Dr Sophia Makki, incident director at the UKHSA, said: The monkeypox outbreak in the UK continues to grow, with over a thousand cases now confirmed nationwide.

'We expect cases to continue to rise further in the coming days and weeks. If you are attending large events over the summer or having sex with new partners, be alert to any monkeypox symptoms so you can get tested rapidly and help avoid passing the infection on.

All these whores scheming over vaccines so they don't have to — god forbid — modify their irresponsible behavior, even temporarily.

"My city officials are selfish and homophobic for not making infinite quantities immediately available!" "Can I get the vaccine in Canada?" etc.

How about being an adult and exercising restraint and caution rather than demanding someone else provide a magic solution? Eventually there will be another deadly STI for which PrEP or a vaccine won't work, and these psychologically stunted whores will truly be fucked.

Great. Now it's contaminated surfaces. A couple of days ago you could apparently only get it via close contact and bodily fluids. I would advise anyone to be very careful at the gym and use disinfectant on equipment and regularly sanitize your hands. Bring your own bottle of hand sanitizer and use your own towels. Do not use the sauna and shower at home. Stay away from group workouts with large groups. Scientists advice infected persons to wear face masks so I guess there is a possibility you can get the virus via droplets infection.

At first I wasn't certain, so I circled back around into the parking lot to look for his car, just to make sure, and there it was. It was indeed him. Well, I saw him arrive home two hours later, and I can only imagine the number of loads he took during that time, and how much contact he might've had with mp-infected skin. I saw him a little while ago in the trash room. He gave me a hello in his usual arrogant tone, which always seems to telegraph "I wouldn't fuck you if you were the last man on earth".

Smallpox vaccination provides full immunity for 3 to 5 years and decreasing immunity thereafter. If a person is vaccinated again later, immunity lasts even longer. Historically, the vaccine has been effective in preventing smallpox infection in 95% of those vaccinated.

R244, in West Africa, the virus has circulated in households where families are caring for an infected person. It’s either assumed or been proven that caregivers get infected by touching the bedding of the infected person, who usually has open lesions, they’ve touched cloth that has infected material from the lesions on it. Because of this, people have been warned about infection via clothing or bedding. However, I don’t think there’s evidence of the virus being transmitted that way in the West, because anyone with open, weeping lesions is headed to the ER.

If this is true and you were vaccinated in the early 70s, your immunity is probably close to zero. But enjoy the hot young dick while you can. The weeks after your monkey pox infection will be gruesome.

First American to go public with monkeypox infection SLAMS CDC for 'lackluster' testing: Says the virus 'sucks' and warns it should be taken 'seriously'

Matt Ford, a self-employed actor who splits his time between Los Angeles and New York City, has spoken out to warn people that the disease 'sucks' and they should take it 'seriously.'

He blasted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for their poor testing efforts, saying it took officials three days to diagnose his illness by which point he 'already knew' what they would say.

The actor and writer, who describes himself as a 'proud openly gay man,' revealed he initially noticed spots in and around his 'underwear zone,' which indicated to him he had caught the virus.

Over the next few days they spread across the rest of his body, including his face, arms, hands and abdomen.

In total, he has counted 25 spots and said after appearing they began to 'fill with puss' and became itchy. Several — especially in the 'sensitive area' — became so painful they left him unable to sleep at night without taking painkillers.

'I think in total I counted 25 and there are also some in more sensitive areas which tend to be the most painful. They're so painful that I had to go to my doctor to get painkillers just to be able to sleep, like really f****** painful.'

Ford also began suffering flu-like symptoms in the early stages, ranging from a fever, chills, night sweat and a cough.

I don't live in a city where the gay population is high or densely packed into bars and gyms, but I think I'd be concerned if I did.

People are already coming out of a period in which their ability to mingle freely was drastically curtailed. The logical thing to do is rapid vaccination of the most susceptible population to nip the spread of this disease in the bud. Depending on self-monitoring and self-disciplined avoidance of sex and gay environments for an unknown amount of time into the future is simply unrealistic and will not be successful.

r306 that would be ideal but as we could see during the onset of Covid its takes forever for the government to roll out large scale vaccinations. We were about 10 months into the Covid pandemic before the first vaccines got distributed to high risk individuals, at that was a global pandemic.

Unfortunately the high risk in this case aren't elderly, women or children, so everyone will drag their ass. They will just continue telling people with symptoms to stay at home which we know isn't going to do shit. At my estimation it will be next year some time before the vaccine is widely available and Im sure a large amount of the gay population will already have gotten it by then.

r311 I didn't forget; the fact that we already have the vaccine makes it even worse. The point I'm making is that the healthcare community needs a full blown crisis to really take action and even then they still take too long. Telling people with symptoms to stay at home is NOT enough.

This article was also posted here, about a man who saw several specialists and visited the ER (where he was told he might have colon cancer!) All of them failed to test him. Only by chance did he connected with an activist who found him a doctor who got off their precious ass to finally order a monkeypox test. It just proves what horrible state US healthcare system is in, doctors write an RX for antibiotics for every problem and just send people on their way.

Monkeypox being touted as a “gay” disease means the public (in the US, at least) won’t care.

The same way everyone tried to avoid COVID-19 until the reports that Blacks and Latinos were more likely to be hospitalized became public. Immediately afterwards, the clamors to return to normal kicked up.

Until someone that doesn’t identify as a gay/bi male gets monkeypox, very little will be done.

People had been in line for 3hrs before it opened and they didn’t bother to tell anyone they had no plans to do the clinic even though they knew they weren’t going to vaccinate anyone, and then sent out one person (who wasn’t a doctor) to tell everyone to leave with absolutely no info.

To prove this you had to provide the name of your contact and they were going to check them off the list of people that had reported to the public health department. Couple of people raised very valid points that they had contacts that had all the symptoms but hadn’t seen a doctor (uninsured / embarrassed / not gotten around to it yet) or some people had had an anonymous person reach out (via a friend) and the guy was basically saying that if that was the case then you were shit out of luck.

[quote]But because the smallpox vaccine eradicated the disease, routine smallpox immunization for the general population ended in Canada in 1972. Hoption Cann said this means that any Canadian who was vaccinated against smallpox was inoculated more than 50 years ago. "It is likely that, after 50 or more years, that vaccination may not offer too much protection against this disease," he said.

From R353: CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE

Vaccinia elicits antiviral antibody levels and virus neutralizing activity that remain elevated for the life of the patient.

Multiple vaccinations achieve only marginally higher levels of antibody and virus neutralizing activity than single vaccination.

Levels of antibodies and virus neutralizing activity are comparable in vaccinated individuals and those who developed smallpox and recovered.

Vaccinia should be used first on individuals who have never been vaccinated before.

"Patients reported less fever and tiredness and more skin lesions in their genital and anal areas than typically seen in monkeypox, the study of 54 patients at London sexual health clinics in May this year found.

The research from London, published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases Journal, follows suggestions from public health bodies like the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the outbreak - which is spreading chiefly among men who have sex with men – is presenting unusually.

The authors, from a number of institutions including Chelsea & Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said case definitions should be reviewed to avoid cases being overlooked, particularly as monkeypox can “mimic” other common sexually transmitted infections (STI) like herpes and syphilis. The study also found that a quarter of the monkeypox patients were HIV positive, and a quarter had another STI."

A couple weeks ago I read that transmission did not require physical contact, although skin-to-skin was driving most infections. Since then, I have rarely seen this mentioned.

Now we’re seeing exponential growth and a scramble to “do something” after reassurance that most have no reason to worry, which is giving deja vu.

Smallpox is closely related and its vaccine is effective: Doesn’t it stand to follow that routes of transmission are more alike than not?

“Before smallpox was eradicated, it was mainly spread by direct and fairly prolonged face-to-face contact between people. Smallpox patients became contagious once the first sores appeared in their mouth and throat (early rash stage). They spread the virus when they coughed or sneezed and droplets from their nose or mouth spread to other people. They remained contagious until their last smallpox scab fell off.

These scabs and the fluid found in the patient’s sores also contained the variola virus. The virus can spread through these materials or through the objects contaminated by them, such as bedding or clothing. People who cared for smallpox patients and washed their bedding or clothing had to wear gloves and take care to not get infected.

Rarely, smallpox has spread through the air in enclosed settings, such as a building (airborne route)”.

🧐

Forgive my reluctance to believe public health agencies when they tell me not to worry and downplay potential routes of transmission.

The sequence of infection starts with lesions in the mouth and you're not contagious until that phase starts. If you don't have many you could easily write it off as a canker or a tongue bite. So blow jobs and rimming have to be part of the route of transmission in our ranks. Plus with PrEP we fuck like crazy without condoms.

Still, there's only six thousand cases in the whole world so hopefully they can still ringfence it meaningfully. The sex positive probably can't be saved unless they are smart enough to get vaccinated and vaccine is available to them. The rest of us, dial back sex with people you don't know, with younger guys and older guys who can still pass for attractive, crowd scenes like FI and P-town and hiring sex workers. It's probably another lost summer. Oh, well.. it's that or a thousand knives in your urethra.

R430 if you look up the pretty great take up of PREP within the gay community you’ll see that actually the community has learned a lot from AIDS. If PREP is made available to everyone that wants or needs it then HIV AIDS can be made a thing of the past.

It’s kinda dumb to live your life based on the premise that there’s another undiscovered disease spreading through the gay community that spreads exactly like HIV does because that’s extremely unlikely. Question for you, do you use condoms for blowjobs with partners? STDs spread in many different ways (skin contact, kissing, any kind of oral sex, rimming, anal sex) so acting like condoms are the only respectable form of protection is kinda stupid.

Also why shouldn’t someone be able to center a certain time in their lives around sexual pleasure. Most of us go through a phase at some part of our lives where sexual pleasure is near the top of our priorities - what’s so wrong with that?

I hope I'm not acting stupid when I ask if there's a better barrier than condoms for limiting exposure to pathogens spread during sex?

R444 condoms are great for anal or vaginal sex, and good for oral sex but nobody uses them for that obviously lol. Rating the functionality of a device isn’t just an analysis of how it medically works, it also includes an analysis of how much people use it, or how it’s usability integrates into the situation in which it’s needed. In this instance, condoms perform well in terms of physically blocking the spread of bacterial and viral disease however they don’t perform well in usability (people prefer not to use them). That’s why HIV has continued to spread even though we have access to condoms. PREP performs just as well as condoms un blocking HIV and performs much better in usability as long as it is easily available to the people that need it. That’s why you’re seeing HIV rates in communities where PREP is available drop inversely against PREP take up.

No single thing is a catch all for all STDs, it’s important to protect yourself as best you can but also to remember that having sex exposes you to STDs, to remember which ones are easily treatable if you get them and to plan your prophylactic strategy accordingly. It’s different for everyone because it depends on some outside factors like what health system you’re a member of, your relationship status, your ability to take antibiotics or not etc etc etc.

As with all of these things the best advice is to talk to your doctor.

Freedom and individual choice are important. However it might be a good idea to close sex venues. If people want to hook up through aps there is nothing that one can do but why should their be sex parties and sex venues that facilitate the spread. The same funds that helped businesses closed for COVID could reapply to help these businesses if they closed for 2 months and let sluts get vaccinated.

I'm not feeling pain, only incredible itchiness at the site of a couple sores on my thigh and a bit sick. Could I just have a summer cold and have become suddenly allergic to my detergent? The only place I could have got this is the gym. It reminds me a bit of when I had chicken pox as a kid. I think I got a smallpox vaccination as a kid so maybe I am fine.

R452 How many geezers would be able to get near other people at a sex party/orgy? Sorry R452 your grant application has been rejected. Please consider a revision with a clinical trial in which volunteer geezers and hot young gays have sex with each other for hours in a small space and are then monitored for monkeypox. Control groups should include young with young and geezers with geezers. Please be sure to balance the number of tops and bottoms across the groups to power the study correctly.

I was responding to the assertion that Monkeypox is easily transmitted via surfaces, R454. I have no interest in orgies or Pretty Young Things (unless they are incredibly nerdy).

That's what some public health officials suggested in the 80s The response was for gay guys to loudly protest declaring they were being stigmatized. I suppose those guys were dead in several years.

A shitshow and disaster like the Aids crisis in the 80s. But hey, at least it's not a death sentence this time. People are just uncomfortable for a few weeks. So even the gay community isn't really concerned and it's still business as usual.

r456 I had to roll my eyes since the beginning. I looked at the direct sources, health official/experts reports, such tweets for facts, data and transmission routes, etc. Under replies, so many were instantly screaming homophobia at the mention of "gay, bi, men who have sex w men" data, as if that info should be muzzled. Fine. Monkeypox doesn't affect me (in my 30s, have good sex life but as a clean freak do not mix with the unknown with questionable health status). Then when some LGB group suggested temporary closing of sex venues to protect gays and prevent further wild spread, they got called homophobic rightwing bigots or sth. Fine.

Now another side is screaming homophobia because not enough vaccines go to those who should get them first... GBMSM? This and that and everything is homophobia. Let's bury and ignore everything, anybody can get it. While currently MP seems to overwhelmingly attack certain demographic/community, targeted care, prevention, even mentioning is... "stigmatising".

Yep, R467. He's reporting serious side effects - trouble sleeping, extreme pain, and using laxatives.

The guy who gave the interview lived a lifestyle that made him vulnerable to infection. Fire Island constantly and all kinds of choices consistent with that.

I know another guy who got it over Pride. He's a serial meth addict, already HIV positive, the usual heedless choices that ruin bodies and disrupt lives.

Is it still all gay and bi men? I assume the trumpeting of it moving into the het community will be loud when it happens. (I hate that Trump ruined perfectly good words like 'trumpet'.)

by Anonymousreply 474July 5, 2022 8:32 PM

R474, there’s been at least one woman in the U.S.; she had returned from a trip to Central Africa. So, yes, it’s virtually all gay or bi men.

Luckily I'm only attracted to and have sex with straight guys, so mpox is nothing I need to worry about it. Poor gay men, they really are a font of STDs, aren't they?
