If you’re happy and you know it, clap… just clap

A gonorrhea epidemic has hit Oregon amid public health concerns that the disease is becoming immune to standard treatment.

Since 2012, cases have nearly tripled statewide, affecting just about every part of Oregon, including rural counties where infections have been traditionally low.

Officials in some counties have become so concerned that they’ve launched public awareness campaigns, with ads on dating sites, Facebook and Google. In others, specialists have gone door-to-door, trying to track down infected people and their partners to get them treated.

“We came to a point where we said we have to do something,” said Tanya Phillips, health promotion manager for Jackson County.

    Know where you have been AND know where your partner has been. That piece of ago-old advice never changes does it?

    Wonder if the Oregon “Clap” epidemic got started when it became a gay holiday haven for the “boys” from Frisco?

    Maybe it came from another country.
    Guys I know that were in the Navy have all kinds of horror stories about some extra virulent strain of the clap someone got in some foriegn port.
    Of course none of em ever say they got- it was always some other guy.

      And “that guy” was up for rotation back to CONUS but wasn’t going anywhere until the docs figured out how to cure his dose.

    • Half of these stories, but only half of them, come from the rather gruesome VD “training films” going back 50+ years about “Vietnamese whores infected with antibiotic-resistant Black Syphilis,” which were probably more likely intended to discourage GIs from following a local down some back alley in Saigon and getting his throat cut for his wallet, or maybe even abducted or killed by local VC.

    I was in Recon and the “Doc”, the guy that had to jab you in both ass cheeks with 4.8 million units of Pen VK as a start. That was a big syringe with a 12 gauge 2″ needle on it and 2 of them were required. Seeing that was usually enough for my team to be more selective about women. It was kept in the ‘fridge and it was hard to push it out of the syringe, took both hands and left a bump the size of a golf ball. I would warm it up beforehand and use a smaller needle for my team. My buddy banged the hot chick I wanted and was bending the pipes on the wall when he took a piss, I told him to bring her in to get her cleaned up. I made her strip (gorgeous) and get on the table and had 2 other guys she teased hold down her legs as I took the syringes out of the FREEZER and jammed them in her sweet little ass, she screamed and came up off the table and slapped me with a syringe sticking out of her ass as I told her she still had 1 more to go. She cleared up and became the team whore and one night sucked off the whole UDT team that was visiting our beach for hydro survey op’s going from sand dune to dune all night. After that we always got along great with our sister team whenever we deployed together.
