"Partner Count Doesn't Matter" vs. Medical Reality

Before I begin, a little disclaimer: I'm just a young dumb cis shitlord MD who will be staff before 28 so take whatever I say here with a grain of salt.

It seems that any discussion about the divorce risk, emotional problems, or other "soft" social markers surrounding the debate about women who CC-rode in their 20s seems to devolve into accusations of insecurity, immaturity, misogyny, Other Standardized Buzzword to Enforce PC Thinking(tm). Nauseating counter quotes include inanities such as "Past is past!", "She chose you now, what does it matter who she fucked before?", "Stop being so insecure!", "It only matters in so far as sexual health is concerned, otherwise I don't give a shit".

Ok, fair enough. I can understand, from a purely rational standpoint, why gold digging CC riders and their cheerleaders have such a vested interest in preventing an epidemic of slut-averse beta bucks from occurring, for obvious reasons. God forbid those betas get standards and disqualify them from the gold rush, because that would totally suck for them.

But if you're a patient telling me that partner count or sexual practices doesn't matter when you're in my office asking about your vaginal discharge or swollen, painful labia, you get labelled Big Fucking Idiot in my head, and I thank you, because I look forward to seeing you again for another future 5 minute visit in a couple months that will net me another 60 bucks. Tack on another 20 for a sick note.

Let's get specific. Just what are some of the lovely medical sequelae that present CC riders are at increased risk for?

  1. Gonorrhea is the second most common disease (never mind STI) in the US; the highest incidence is in the sexually active female population 15-19, the second highest is males 20-24, but here's the kicker - the female rate is underestimated because infection is often asymptomatic in women. Risk factors? Multiple sexual partners, previous infection, being unmarried. Again, just a Dumb Cis Shitlord, just spouting agenda, not facts, oh wait - this was from the CDC and the American Journal of Epidemiology. But so what? What if I'm asymptomatic! Except gonorrhea can lead to, and accounts for, up to 40% of pelvic inflammatory disease, which is an upper genital tract infection that can cause chronic pelvic pain, infertility, or in severe cases, life threatening abdominal sepsis. Hur dur, we has antibiotics now, we is good to keep on slutting! Ok, fair enough, 90% of cases can resolve with first or second line agents, but past behaviour predicts future behaviour, and I've already had more than one tearful counselling session with an unfortunate who is now infertile "I never thought this would happen to MEEE!!". Repeat customer, beat it each time, until Mother Complications decided to show up and exert her dominance. But but but condoms! Routine barrier contraceptive use reduces gonorrhea transmission rate by up to 50%, not 100%. And yet an early 2000s CDC survey showed only 30% of early 20s women reported regular condom use. Oh well, there's always cats!

  2. HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer - AKA human papilloma virus, sub type 16 to be specific. Most common STI worldwide, infection spreads shortly after onset of sexual activity. In decades past the primary domain of smokers, but now thought to account for up to 50-80% of North American oropharynx cancers. Risk factors: early age of sexual activity onset, multiple partners. In graphic terms, if you had a choice between eating out a former slut wife vs. a low count/virgin and chose the former, you are literally at higher risk for throat and mouth cancer. Sure, you will probably beat the odds, unless you're one of the unlucky ones that ends up losing part of his tongue and a radiated wooden neck. Double sucks if you get divorced too.

  3. Herpes - an incurable, but non-fatal viral infection that causes intermittent painful open sores on genitalia. Same family as cold sore virus. Traditionally, your oral herpes are caused by HSV 1, genital herpes by HSV2. With the prevalence of oral sex, you are finding both subtypes on both areas. Still transmissible even if partner is not symptomatic with active sores. HSV 2 generally causes worse symptoms, so woe to you if you get it on your mouth from your dear "past doesn't matter" Special Snowflake. Bonus points if you somehow get it in your eye.

I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of why it's objectively, from a strictly medical and health standpoint, a worse decision to wife up or make a former slut your new monogamous partner. Cervical cancer risk, chlamydia, prolapse, rectovaginal fistulas (essentially, you go number 2 out the vagina), ectopic pregnancy risk, salpingitis, etc etc.

Student health clinics are a gong-show. I get students coming in treating "the clap" like a joke, like it's just a routine cold you're supposed to get like clockwork per year. I love prenatal visits where the husband comes in with the wife, I ask the mom about previous STIs or sexual history, she denies, and at future visits she spills the beans when alone. I actually had one obese diabetic who has poor insulin compliance because, I shit you not, it's a form of fat shaming. Well, if preventing blindness, rotting feet, and kidney failure is fat shaming, call me Dr. Fat-Hating Shitlord. Every week brings at least one Maury-like moment, and it's hilarious. Telling a hysterical patient in ER matter-of-factly and stone faced that she has genital herpes, while watching her faithful boyfriend's expression slowly change as I discuss the possible transmission routes makes the hours worth it.

The best part is getting paid well to get a front row seat to this daily dose of human stupidity. So, buy into the flow of PC bullshit about not being a judgey douche if you want, but don't worry, I'll be there with some antibiotics and antidepressants when it all goes to shit. Just pray the bacteria doesn't become resistant before you've had your fun.

Fuck I love my job.

from a brief google search, one thing reported 7 (unsure if lifetime or not) and another reported 12 (lifetime)

This will be a much better representation of the average, since the mean will likely be skewed by some men having hundreds of partners

-7 upvotesgarlicextract5 years ago

Are you serious?

If you are serious, the median is the middle number in a set or sample. It is often much more useful than the mean/average, which can be biased by outliers.

For example lets say you surveyed 9 people about their partner count - 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 60, 100.

the "average" partner count for these people is 19 partners, but the median is 3. As you can see the median is much more representative of the sample.

15 upvotesFrietjeman5 years ago

I was in the partner count doesn't matter camp. LTR with a partner with over 30 partners. I had 2 before her. First unprotected sex partner. Boom soon after we begin dating she tests positive for HPV. We are older than Gardasil and it was one of the potential cancer causing ones for women. Years later I developed warts on the hands, big nasty ones that kept coming, and took a lot of nitrogen spray from the Dr. and dry ice applied by myself to finally resolve. Then came the genital warts. I was dry icing the base of my shaft. Then anal warts. The Dr. recommended I hold out and hope they go away on their own.

I did finally become immune to developing warts less than a year after the genital warts began. She's had several precancer scares at the Dr., and we're talking a decade after the time when she became infected. Promiscuity is hazardous to your health, but being a desperate nerd and going for an easy promiscuous girl to get laid is hazardous too.

Bonus: She didn't learn from contracting an STD not to have unprotected sex. Years into our relationship she cheated on me and had an unprotected threesome with a couple, and sex one on one with the man on one or more occasions. I was still having unprotected sex with her all throughout. I flipped my shit when I found out but went to counseling instead of breaking up, for another year. She actually held it against me for flipping out on her.

Final word of advice: Just because a girl has a high sex drive with multiple sex partners does not mean she will have a high sex drive for frequent sex with you in a monogamous relationship. I was going more than a month usually between.

I'm sure it won't change anything. Instead of refuting or accepting what has been presented, they'll just shift it to, "Well what about men and all the women they have sex with". Which, I admit, is a valid argument, but it doesn't address what was originally put forth (a woman's promiscuity).

I've been on reddit a few months now and I'm amazed at the level of self-deception and irrational beliefs people are capable of, and then they get offended when you point it out to them.

That is a really good question. I have called women hard on the hamster many times and pointed out clear lies that make up their beliefs. They just shift to a new lie every time. Do they really believe the hamster? Are women self aware enough to know that they are lying?

No I do not think that they are. That's one thing you've got to remember with women. They do not think like you and me. They truly believe the hamster.

Except the average guy doesn't even come close to having sex with more than 30 women in his life, unless he's paying for it. You'd have to be a real alpha to apprach those numbers. Whereas even an average woman could easily have had sex with that many people just in her early 20's.

7 upvotesBlackHeart895 years ago

Verrry good point. I knew an ugly chick who was quiet and didn't talk to anyone in high school.

Turned out a whole neighborhood of guys were fucking and getting head from her because she was so easy. And some of these guys were able to pull at least 8's.

1 upvotesmryddlin5 years ago

Confirmation bias is showing.

Just because you haven't does not make you the norm.

I broke 20+ before leaving high school abd STI are easy to avoid IF you have the talk and say no to men or women that engage in hazardous behavior.

Fyi I am in average a 6-7, better myself to the 8 range. It was all Robert heinlien and maintaining frame (without knowing what I was doing) that got me laid.

It was acting like a beta that made it stop, every single time I've tried it dries up.

1 upvotesquelques_heures5 years ago

Come on, be real guy, having sex with 20+ people before you're 18 is not the norm!

1 upvotesmryddlin5 years ago

I went back and recount (fuck that was funny) it was 16-17 before 20 and I dried up around 21, then nothing for good 6 years (broken beta period, guilt over a buddy and a girl...I totally fucked her and he died later from cancer, we made peace but that doesn't change shit).

Said fuck it, left all my 'friends' moved downtown and been rebuilding since, by 30 was a sysadmin and steady girl, by 34 poly and muliple partners.

I'm not kidding when I reference Robert heinlien for my success , it was before I 'knew' the new way of acting with women..gah so many wasted years :)

I'm 38 now and still building on previous successes. I'm not exactly 100% TRP as I have no issue with girls riding the CC but I also don't want to marry so I don't give a shit. I'm also one if the cocks on the ride , not gonna knock it as I like it.

Where I do align is with the behavior and sexual strategy analysis of women and the damage that feminist ideology is/has done to our society.

The marriage and perfect women stuff I see as just butt hurt ex-betas that don't want to take personal responsibility for the failure to be alpha.

I disagree because it was pretty normal to have double digits in my circle, then again my HS experience was diffrent than most.

Edit: sorry wasn't saying it was the norm, just personal experience of one person is not the same as other's. I suspect the median for both genders is relatively low anyway.

Too lazy and don't care enough to find stats ;)

She told me to move out for some childish tantrum based reason which she then hamstered retroactively, by claiming she meant temporarily. This was completely made up to protect herself from the truth; she was the one who outwardly pushed me out, even though inwardly she didn't want to break up, just play mind games. I consider that it was she who dumped me by making me move out, while she considers that it was I who dumped her by obeying her demand to move out, and by declining to move back in.

I had tried to be friendly acquaintances but she wanted more. She wanted me to be "invested" and "committed" to a "friendship". This sounds a lot like more relationship talk to me so I told her I can't offer any of that. She told me not to contact her then. She continued to contact me every few months by text, talk a little, then remind me not to contact her.

I explained to her that she had created a one-way dynamic of communication, and told her not to contact me, reminding her that she expects the same of me. She understood and so far that's that, for the last couple months.

My inclination has always been to desire a girlfriend. I was raised very conservatively, and the notion of hooking up with a woman with no intention of evaluating her relationship potential is alien to me and always has been. I was not even aware of ONS hookup culture until college and was completely ill suited for it.

My girlfriend is profoundly submissive to me in all aspects, and is deeply dedicated, hooked. She knows a woman's job is to hold a man's interest, and that I have less on the line than she by investing time in a relationship. She knows I could get bored and leave her so she tries very hard to be a good woman. She comes like I came from a sheltered conservative upbringing, and was never poisoned with any third wave feminism jazz hand applause ego.

And that's just the physical stuff.

What matters even more (because the odds are worse) is that past behaviour is a predictor of future behaviour.

The reason a woman has a high partner count is because guys didn't stick around after banging her. It doesn't matter how easily she gives it up, if she such a keeper that the first guy she gives it up easy to puts a ring on it six months later.

A slut is a woman whose only appeal to men is physical, so she has to substitute sexual availability for girl game. That means having a high partner count is the symptom, not the disease. The disease is whatever awful personality trait it is that made all those other men run for the hills.

If they did that, you should, too.

107 upvotesdisposable_pants5 years ago

The reason a woman has a high partner count is because guys didn't stick around after banging her.

This isn't necessarily the primary reason. Her partners may have wanted commitment and she may have turned them down because she was 24 and didn't want to think about marriage for another decade.

70 upvotesStories_of_Red5 years ago

she may have turned them down because she was 24

... and the man making the offer was not Jared Leto.

A woman is totally ready to settle down, at any age, if the man is deemed worthy. It is just that her scale of worthy is often really distorted. In this day and age, too many 19-24 year olds act as though they think, eventually, a gorgeous 29 year old billionaire thundercocker will wife them. But until such time, the gals are going to just play the field until that Man God appears.

And that woman isn't by nature interested in marriage. She is just interested because her circumstances have changed and she is afraid of getting old alone.

4 upvotesdisposable_pants5 years ago

I don't think that's accurate. I've talked to plenty of women (and read about plenty more) who have every intention of getting married someday -- they just want to start a career/make it through grad school/travel more/fuck more first. As another commenter in this thread pointed out women are always interested in marriage; they simply start out with absurdly high standards. Those standards lower as they age and get more realistic, but they start somewhere.

2 upvotesfemmefatale15 years ago

I've talked to plenty of women (and read about plenty more) who have every intention of getting married someday -- they just want to start a career/make it through grad school/travel more/fuck more first.

Right, but that demonstrates that marriage is maybe 4 or 5 on her priority list. She would rather be doing those other things instead. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean they will put less effort into it than someone who puts getting married as there number 1 priority.

16 upvotesBlackHeart895 years ago

Also to add on, she may have been seeking a committed relationship from those out of her league. Which will result in an alpha widow.

Or she may have been searching for someone who was in her league, but just did not want a commitment. Thats my situation. I'm dealing with women I wouldn't mind being in an LTR with. But I just refuse to commit right now. But each one is trying. I may break and do it. But I know it won't last long.

Either way. This also could lead to being an alpha widow. But this also goes back to women not giving it away so easily. If you get dropped by these guys, stop being so quick to fuck them. Honestly, young alphas typically aren't the type to commit. Thats something they need to learn.

19 upvotesdontdrinkthekoolade5 years ago

Don't be surprised if you get a barrage of downvotes; but yes of course, there is always exceptions. However, in the realm of AWALT high partner count is a good indicator that guys don't stick around after banging her.

You could also throw in that she traveled all through Europe and the pacific in her early twenties and so she never was around enough for a real LTR. You can make as many "exceptions" as you want, but AWALT is AWALT.

48 upvotesdisposable_pants5 years ago

I don't think this is an exception -- I think it's a natural conclusion from other TRP ideas:

  • Women know they have many options
  • In the vast majority of interactions men pursue women, not the other way around
  • Feminism has taught women to hold off on marriage until their 30s
  • Women may hold off on marriage despite having quality partners
  • Women may explore other options despite having quality partners

None of these are controversial, and together they paint a picture of a woman who remains single not (necessarily) because she has some undesirable flaw, but because she's desirable enough that she has near limitless options. Anyone who has unlimited sex thrown at them in their 20s will be reluctant to give that up.

I wifed up my baby mama when she was 19 and I was 20 at the time. She was the hottest girl in her sorority and I was one of the better looking guys on the baseball team. We both had a similar notch count which didn't bother me too much cuz I was kind of a slut too. I asked her to get tested if she ever wanted me to go down on her. Haha. Of course she did. We tested together. Be smart and be safe folks!

10 years later I can't help but think of how high her count would be if I didn't wife her up. How long would she have rode the CC? Would she have been smart enough to know when to stop and settle down?

Ehh, I think you're generalizing here a little bit. I'm sure a lot of hot chicks who go on backpacking trips in their 20's DO get around, but I don't think it's as clear to generalize that with riding the CC as a girl who has "only guy friends cause girls are too much drama".

The former displays someone who has a hunger to see the world and go on some kind of adventure. The latter is a person who has shitty thought processes and most likely can't understand that they themselves are actually the problem in their "girls are too dramatic" scenario.

The chicks who think "girls are too dramatic, I'm just like one of the guys!" are probably too irresponsible and stupid to organize a backpacking trip. That's just my two cents though.

12 upvotesFreshlyWashedPillow [OP]5 years ago

Genital-oral mucosal contact always carries the risk of HPV or HSV (herpes) transmission. Generally, if your partner's been previously active, there is always a chance she is a carrier, and there is no HPV screening test for males. Obviously, I would advise abstaining from a BJ from someone with obvious symptoms like open mouth sores, or signs of gonorrheal pharyngitis.

The issue with otherwise normal appearing partners is that the results won't be seen for many years. By the odds, even if you are infected, you probably won't get cancer from HPV. But my point all along is that there is a undisputable, and quantifiable medical difference between having sex with someone who is less promiscuous vs. someone who is. Risk of HPV/herpes is part of that calculation.

The safest way is to get tested prior to activity. Unless you have a lamp, speculum, and lab ready, there is no way you can 100% tell if a girl is clear of gonorrhea/trichomonas/chlamydia by physical exam alone because the culture swabs need to be taken from the cervix as well. Besides smell/discharge, things like warts (these are generally clustered, with a verrucous (rough) surface, as opposed to pimples from shaving), ulcers, visible masses (swollen Bartholin glands) are visible; however, if you're in the situation where you're trying to play impromptu doctor, you've already made the wrong choice. Stay as safe as possible and get tested. You've only yourself to blame if you let your lust control your health.

If you need STD screening after a sketch encounter, it depends on the elapsed time from exposure and your symptoms. There are slightly different protocols. Regardless, you need to see your doctor. At the end of the day, from your POV, I am just another guy on the Internet. I have nothing to prove here other than the fact that I want to both contribute and amuse subscribers here with my unique perspective.

Women are more susceptible. Thinner genital linings, reception of STI laced fluids, and a hospitable micro-organism environments make a one night stand a bigger risk for women. Uncircumsized men have also been shown to contract HIV more frequently during studies in Africa. Men, who don't get exposure through anal sex, are more resistant.

So women are indeed at higher risk.

You're right also in that promiscuous men are more at risk that non-promiscuous men.

I suppose that it's a matter of weighting the risks and returns. If you want to fuck around, you have to realize that you are at more risk. The thing is though, life is not about avoiding risk, but taking calculated risks.

The lesson here is DON'T LTR PROMISCUOUS WOMEN, it's just not profitable.

4 upvotesstudyworkoutsleep5 years ago

Men are indeed per partner at lower risks. Love this post, as an MD I've had this conversation numerous times with dumbfounded friends. Its as if the agenda of embracing "wymyn's sexuality" ignores the facts that have been gathered by scientists, physicians, and researchers. Most women and men in their sexually active years are woefully unaware.

However, worth noting is TRP guy taking advantage of his top 20% station, racking up the HPV exposure with multiple partners. It's his due, and I'm all about it. But when he uses his alpha appeal to land a very low partner count/virgin LTR (or even if he plates a virgin/partner count <2 woman), he is likely carrying numerous HPV strains (HPV is transmitted by any skin to skin contact, and not entirely protected by condoms). He had better hope she is young and has had the HPV vaccine because upon initiation of sexual activity, she gets inoculated with a ton of viral strains, at an older age- a recipe for cervical cancer (the body reacts to HPV exposure better at a younger age. In older times, initiation of sexually activity at ages <21 with only one partner meant that the body had better chances of clearing the one inoculation of limited number of viral strains. Older women clear strains much slower/ more poorly, but thankfully in historical times they were settled down and no new innoculations occurred with a faithful partner. This can be canceled out in recent data with "younger age of sexual activity onset" because of CC riding and association with higher total partner count/HPV exposures). Rare case, only seen it once in a OBGyn clinic, but worth keeping in mind when selecting a LTR if you don't want to have to ditch her after she gets precancer (assuming TRP masters are the ones who can swing such a LTR partner).

First good on you for being a doctor.

You get to a high partner count by cheating. My morality on cheating is whatever, no love lost as long as you didn't fiscally depend on the person and it wasn't to serious.

Large partner count women have at some point cheated off a man that provided for them. You will be the next beta if your stupid enough to provide!

Gonna disagree on cheating as the only cause of high partner counts. It can be a factor, but there are plenty of men and women racking up sex for fun.

Like, if you're in an LTR and do a couple consensual threesomes or foursomes, you're both increasing scores. It doesn't have to be a bad thing, especially if you're teaming up.

The cephalosporins-resistant strain has been going around globally. In June 2012, the World Health Organization warned doctors about the potential problem, and urged medical professionals to keep a closer eye on the disease. They felt that in a couple of years gonorrhea could potentially be resistant to all treatment currently available.

Vaginas, which are designed to sustain sperm are literally bacteria factories. They have a much higher risk of contracting some diseases than men do due to weaker genital linings, reception of STI laced fluids, exposed mucuous membranes, and a hospitable micro-organism environment. Especially if that man is circumsized. Also, HPV is almost entirely a female problem as men cannot contract cervical cancer. (Men can have throat cancer develop later sometimes, but this is very rare.) The CDC reports that 47 percent of black women have contracted genital herpes, the not so friendly type 2 kind. Be careful out there fellas. Basically, the pill and abortions have exacerbated the CC nature of almost any girl. If you are going raw dog or long term, get her checked out. Then rechecked on regular intervals.

I'm personally not on board with the whole plate spinning thing... seems like it's for guys trying to overcome confidence issues, etc. To me spinning a plate that isn't going to go anywhere long-term is just boring as fuck. Once the potential for long-term was gone I wasn't into a girl anymore.

Point is that you can't really make a big thing about how awful and terrible Catherine Zeta Jones is for - gasp - contracting HPV (did he get it from her? We have no idea) while maintaining the idea that guys should be out there "spinning plates".

This submission, and the responses to it, honestly sounds like a lot of jealous hand wringing dudes who don't get laid. Guys in here are so stoked that sluts are getting their comeuppance - "justice!" they shout. Huh?

Y'all realize that if you want to "spin plates" and fuck and chuck chicks, you gotta fuck the kind of chicks who are down with being spun and fucked and chucked, yes? If you wanna pull a chick from the bar and fuck her, you're going to be fucking the kind of chick who fucks guys who pull her from the bar... that's math. It's one thing to avoid sluts for marriage. That's obviously a good play. But the vibe in here is getting weird.

I completely agree. TRP has some useful advice, but there is some real dissonance here. The guys here seem to realize that a high partner count has serious drawbacks, but they still want to have sex with a lot of girls.

I had a bit of an argument with a friend of mine over this just recently. I told him I could only marry a girl with a low partner count and he thought I was being insecure. I gave him this analogy.

Say you have $18,000 cash to buy a car. There are two cars that you're choosing between; a brand new car, or a well used car. Both cars are nice cars.

The new car costs $21,000, $3,000 more than you have right now, but the used car is $14,000.

The brand new one has very low mileage, just from a few test drives. Full warranty. Everything is factory new. New car smell.

The used car has high mileage, a few dents, buggy radio but it's cheap and it isn't a terrible car.

If it's me, I'm going to save up the other $3,000 and get the new car. Taking the extra time to raise that little bit extra will pay off by getting me a car barely anyone has touched that, with regular care and maintenance, can last me possibly the rest of my life. There is a chance of it shitting out on me, but it's a small one.

I'm definitely not going to get the beater. It might be a great car now, and a killer value, but you're going to invest too much money in keeping it running and there's a high probability of it shitting out on you early on. On top of that, you'll have to get a CarFax report to see if it's been in any accidents the dealership may not have mentioned. It's just not worth it even if you can save the money.

I figure that's a decent enough analogy to explain my position on LTRing a high mileage woman. I'm good with plating them, but settling down? No way.

My friend didn't agree but said he understood where I was coming from

5 upvotesAngry_Landwhale5 years ago

Interesting perspective. I wonder how so many doctors decide to get married after witnessing this shit.

Hey I wanted to ask you about something here that seems to be a deliberately hazy topic. I've noticed a lot of wives and girlfriends turning up with hpv several years into a relationship. Only answers seem to be that it's possible the shit stayed around for a decade, so there's no real reason to doubt their word. Thing is, seems to happen quite a bit, how rare is it to test positive for this after being allegedly monotonous for years?

20 upvotesFreshlyWashedPillow [OP]5 years ago

Happy to answer - it's not so much that they "turn up" with HPV several years into a relationship, it's that the screening test women regularly do every 3 years between age 21-69 (the Pap) finally picked up some cervical cells showing signs of precancerous or cancerous changes. It is likely that they were exposed early on in life to HPV from past partners, with the changes finally showing up now.

At the onset of sexual activity, most women are exposed to the HPV virus, which is normally fought off in normal individuals. There are many subtypes of HPV, with varying oncogenic risks, and multiple sexual partners increases your potential exposure to different strains. Once infected, it can take years, even decades for the virus to start causing detectable cancerous changes, hence the regular screening.

Now, for those women who are monogamous with a male who has also never been exposed to HPV, they could theoretically have a lifetime of negative paps.

So to answer your question, it actually isn't rare, and you don't test "positive" so much as one of several possibilities, as the cytology ranges from normal to ASCUS (atypical cells of undetermined significance) to high grade neoplasia. The key point is that such a result is more often than not a result of past (years ago) sexual history, rather than recent cheating, given how long it takes for HPV to cause cancerous changes.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

Got a question for you. When I was with my ex she called me one day saying that prior to when we were together she was told by her doctor that something turned up on her pap smear and that she was relieved to find out that day that it was a false positive. She also was telling me all of this conveniently after we started having unprotected sex. She was disgustingly nonchalant about it and I flipped out and she changed her story saying that she found out before we started dating. From what I understand, even if she was telling the whole truth, which I doubt, there is a chance that she exposed me to HPV. It's been almost a year since we broke up and I've had no symptoms.

I should've ran for the hills after she told me she caught chlamydia once (of course it wasn't her fault according to her) and that she has fucked over 20 men. I'm afraid my old BP ways and "accepting her past" may have compromised my health.

2 upvotesFreshlyWashedPillow [OP]5 years ago

In all liklihood, you are already infected by HPV, simply going by the fact that her N = 20 previously. The way the whole HPV timeline generally works is girl contracts HPV @ first oral/genital contact within her first few partners (if none of her first few partners have HPV, she cannot get it, but the chances of this goes down rapidly as N count increases), and transmission is not guaranteed with first contact with an HPV positive partner, but multiple contact with infected partner, or multiple encounters with different partners will both greatly increase chance of eventually contracting it as time goes on). HPV is often repelled by a healthy immune system, but it can also stay dormant. The pap test is essentially a swab of your cells from the cervix thats looked at and examined to see if they display any cancerous changes (caused by HPV). These changes takes years to develop from initially contracting the virus itself. So whether or not her pap was positive doesn't really change much for your risk, because she couldve have been passing it to you despite negative paps. The determining factor is again, hx of multiple partners, early age of sexual activity.

If the guy's goal is risk minimization and prioritizing their health over racking up an N count, then my answer is an unequivocal yes, they should strive for that. I want to be clear (and not that you implied it), but my original post made no endorsement of irresponsible male sexual behaviour whatsoever. My abrasive and blunt wording may be misconstrued by some as "slut-shaming" while simultaneously encouraging guys sleeping around to prove their alpha-ness. This is deliberate non-sense. What I specifically wished to address was that Partner Count Doesn't Matter for Women(tm) is, from a medical standpoint, farce, and to address the rationale for slut-revulsion from a different perspective than what is usually discussed here.

For the player types that I see for their STD checks, there will be some who take their health seriously and those who are laissez faire. There are always gradations of risk. I cannot tell them how they should pursue what makes them happy, I can only tell them that given their choices, this is what they SHOULD do to be as safe as POSSIBLE (but never 100%). It is up to them to follow or not.

Let me highlight HPV-related cancer. Typically people under 50yo don't get cancer, but there is a rising epidemic of HPV related Head and neck cancer, cervical cancer, anal cancer, along with vulvar and vagina cancer. These are all caused by the HPV virus and take about 15-30 years of infection before causing the cancer, which means that these cancers are arising in 30-50year olds. These young patients ask me,"I don't smoke. How did I get cancer in my tonsil?" The answer is that you sucked someone's HPV infected dick or clit 20 years ago.

  1. You're making these STD risks out to be a lot greater than they are. Yes, they exist. Yes, you have to apply the probabilities to make a risk assessment.

  2. Although it's easier for women to contract STD's than men, your entire premise, if we accept it, would lead to the conclusion that men as well as women should ideally remain celibate until marriage.

  3. Your point doesn't address "the past is the past". If a reformed slut with a 50+ body count doesn't have any STD's, then she doesn't have any STD's. "The past is in the past".

  4. The biggest problem with trying to housewife a whore isn't that you're going to get an STD. The chance of you getting antibiotic resistant gonorrhea or developing oropharyngeal cancer because your beloved carries STD's from her days of whoring it up in college is fairly small. If she doesn't have any STD's, it's zero. Herpes is harder to spread than you think, and at the end of the day it's a skin condition. The biggest risk is the increased risk of marital infidelity. This will destroy your world. This is by far the biggest problem with reformed sluts.

^ This is where it gets complicated. Their very bodies become a concern to us. What she does with her body affects you. Also the docs point but with concern to health not the spread of genes. Which is why I think people freak out about abortions and other female contraceptive. This rabbit whole just goes deeper. Where does the line lay when I want to affect change on the people around me so it best reflects a world I want to live in. Do I have that right in any sense or are we all just kinda along from the ride while we are all weighing in and expressing ourselves thus giving rise to the culture at the time.

All of this makes an assumption we all want a wife, or someone that will be monogamous enough for me to have a child with her and I know its mine.

Why is it assumed that following my base desires would lead me to the most happiness anyways. We decide more and more everyday what it is to be human. I want to have kids, I'd like to have a wife but is that realistic and would this really be best for me. Kids leave and shit happens.

I think something like that is enough to show that she as truly changed her ways. Sure her SMV would decrease with age, but she has a chance to redeem herself. For a CC rider, this is probably harder than quitting heroin + nicotine + alcohol. So if a woman is dedicated enough to go through with this, I'm sold.

All wise moves to lower risk as much as possible. I want to reiterate that screening tests are not foolproof (different tests have varying levels of something called sensitivity/specificity, which basically refers to the possibility of false negatives/positives), and that furthermore, for some diseases, depending on gender (for example, HPV in males), they do not exist. In females, they can lay dormant over many years before causing the cervical changes that make the Pap positive. Until they do, she will still get negative screening tests, but your partner is still infected and can still pass it on to you.

I still call it a mark of responsibility as a sexually active man.

just say you slept with someone who had it and they will.

Nice post. I have a few questions for you:

  1. Do you ask every girl you sleep with how many men she has slept with before fucking her? How do you know if she's being truthful?
  2. Do you always get testing paperwork from everyone you sleep with?
  3. Have you ever had or would you ever have a ONS? Or a short term fling, say on vacation?

Seems to me, we all know the risks. The more you plate, the higher your odds of contracting something are. But condoms wipe out a lot of the risks, even though they are not fun to use.

Guys here keep saying they wouldn't fuck sluts with high partner counts, but there is really no way to know this...so we all take some chances, or we go celibate.

  1. No, because it won't give me any reliable information to base my decisions off of. If you are thinking about marrying/LTRing someone, you will become their next of kin. If she allows it, you can request access to medical records, which can be reasonable since you're going to be the default substitute decision maker for her health care decisions if she's incapable. Age of first pap basically gives you a good idea of onset of sexual activity, as well STI testing records/frequency. Even if she says no, gauging her reaction to that request will tell you more than simply asking about her past ever could. Obviously, medical records are confidential, even from spouses or spouses to be, so there's really no guarantee. Again, however, one of the pieces of info will be her reaction when you are having a serious discussion about sexual health/medical conditions before settling down.

  2. Yes.

  3. No, and again, thats a product of me, my profession, and my personal tastes. Not all choices in life are equal, this applies to both men and women. I've seen plenty of idiot guys wait weeks or months before finally getting that penile discharge checked out, or that bleeding lesion on their dick head that turned out to be squamous cell carcinoma (yet another potential complication of HPV). My original post focused on women only because that's where the mantra of partner counts don't matter seem to be emanating from at the moment. If you're a guy and you neglect to screen/vet your partners, you alone bear responsibility for that failure. My advice would be, if you CHOOSE to make it your sexual goal to spin as many plates as possible, do your utmost to vet to whatever level you feel you can tolerate. This includes diligent condom use, regular screening, insisting on partner screening, limiting ONS, and if able, having open discussions with partner about sexual health hx, +/- medical records. The "reward" so to speak is sex with many partners of uncertain histories. The consequences will be in proportion to the risk.

1 upvoteskevkos5 years ago

Thanks. And I'll bet 99.9% of guys here forgo #3, except maybe condom use. But I'm guessing most guys are trying to be "alpha" and inflate their own body count, and see this type of discussion before sex as something that would make her run. Of course...I agree with you and this increases STD chances....as does plating, even if you swear you will use condoms every time.

It's funny because the main conclusion women would take away from this post isn't the health stuff, but that doctors won't want to BB them if their dick-debt is too high. Since the doctor is one of the cardinal BB fantasies, any suggestion that women are becoming less attractive to doctorsas a class might meet with a genuine change in female practical decision making.

1 upvotesRPDDD5 years ago

I have a theory, which I'm hoping you all can help me reason out via logic.

I've been trying to estimate the median number of partners for 25 year old American woman. My thought is that people have been holding on to some legacy assumptions and also have trouble accepting the basic math and therefore severely underestimate the quantity.

My thoughts:

  • Within the upper 50 percentile of women (5's and above) I think the vast majority become sexually active in the late teens.

  • After high school, social activity greatly increases to multiple times a week for nearly every week of the year.

  • After the first casual sexual encounter, the rate of casual sexual encounters greatly increases and very soon approaches weekly.

  • In their 20's, women don't even like using the term "dating" anymore, because I think it insinuates the need for monogamy or responsibility of some sort. How many times have you asked a woman in her 20's if she is dating a certain man and she responds with "no, she is only seeing him", or some other unspecific response to diminish the label of the relationship?

So, some basic math:

52 weeks in a year. Round that out to 50. Going out or socializing about 3 times a week on average ( I think it is a conservative estimate) Fully active lifestyle from age 19 to 25 = 6 years 50 x 3 x 6 = 900 opportunities

Second calculation: age 18 to age 28 = 10 years so 50 x 3 x 10 = 1500 opportunities

Then simply estimate how many times out of how many you think they went home with someone. How low could it be? 1/10? I think it is higher.

I don't think these are unrealistic numbers. The reason I think so is that about a decade ago, my 31 year old best friend married his 29 year old girlfriend. I hung out with her and her friends for the entire 2 years they dated. Her best friend since high school "went out somewhere or did something 6 or 7 days a week". Even my buddy's wife admitted openly that there was a decade there that her and her friends went out every single day of the week to a bar or club. She openly said she only stopped because of meeting my buddy.

Then I looked at her friends behavior. Nearly every single time we went out for those couple of years (about 2 or 3 times a week), she would end up leaving with some guy she just met or aggressively hit on me. I lost track of how many times I heard my buddy's wife talking on the phone with her friends about the guy she met last night.

Then I looked at my buddy's wife. For those couple of years, we constantly ran into guys that she had at some point in the past dated. My buddy would have to constantly alpha dog to get guys to fuck off. She would also frequently get plastered drunk, even after they got engaged.

So if we could have a discussion, as scientific as possible with hard evidence lacking, about actual real numbers, I think we would all benefit from it. What type of anecdotal evidence have you all observed? Why are we still talking about "high partner counts" of 30, when the evidence I have seen is that the median number is much much higher than that?

I know barely mildly attractive women below 30 that during a period of less than a year had over 5 different guys they fucked; and these were the educated women with professional jobs in my office. The majority of women in my office go out multiple times a week all throughout their 20s and 30s and "date" constantly.

Someone with more knowledge and information than me please enlighten me as to why we still assume that partner counts for women range from 10 to 30 on average. Do any of you even know a single woman anywhere above 25 that is honestly and realistically below a count of 30? If a count of 30 is the bottom, what is the median?

I don't need a medical reason. A woman with a high partner count is instinctively unappealing to me.

I dunno. I think you're missing the forest for the trees. Barrier protection >>> partner count in regards to STIs except for HPV and HSV, and even then condoms help, and what with one of the HPV vaccines being standard of care, and the plethora of cheap generic HSV meds, I'd argue partner count is pretty insignificant from a medical perspective outside of immunocompromised patients. From a predicting future behaviors, or even a psych, perspective, I agree partner count is a very important predictor. I personally rarely ask about partner count but always ask about barrier protection when getting a sexual history.
