We discussed first-sex in an earlier post. Go take a look at that in the archives to see how performance anxiety relates to this post.Performance anxiety is generally thought of as a man-thing. After all, without an erect penis there’s not much performance. However, this anxiety is widespread among women, too. Most of you forty, fifty and sixty year old folks haven’t been with another person since you were first married. This makes for a unique type of encounter: an encounter of a shy kind.Not only are you worried about having sex and being good at it, you have to worry about disease, r ...
Okay, this is the last one on "diseases we can catch while dating," but it is still important.TB – While not considered a STD, tuberculosis is becoming a problem in many third world countries as well as in the developed world the result of all the intercontinental flight between nations. Perhaps if our government and the politicians who run things had a collective brain, they wouldn't let anyone and everyone enter our country without some type of screening for communicable diseases. Figures: they don't want to look racist or as if they are profiling, to detriment of our collective health. ...
Preventing STDs There are some easy rules to keep you safe in the world of Internet dating.First and foremost don’t have sex with anyone other than yourself. Another option is virtual sex on the Internet i.e. cyber sex. Remember "virtual" means nothing like real.At first thought you may realize that provides for a rather unexciting life: no blood tests, no trips to the doctor, no medicines that could make you sick, no shortened life span, just no damn fun.You’re going to want to have some fun, and you will want to date rather than wither away alone, so abstinence may not be the best wa ...
HIV/AIDS Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency SyndromeThis is the one most of you fear the most.

Because of the previous death rate associated with AIDS before the medications being used today, the fear was justified. Now. ...
I know this stuff is scary and boring and most of you will skip over it. However, this is the kind of stuff you need to know if you want to enjoy dating and maybe even finding that perfect mate.Hepatitis is a virus that attacks the liver. There three main types: HVA, HVB, and HVC. Like many of these virus diseases, there is no cure.HVA is transmitted by contact with contaminated stool and therefore can be contracted during sexual activity. Especially if you need to use a stool to engage in sex. Oops, not that kind of stool. With better hygiene, there is less chance of contracting this disea ...
Many of my "fans" are getting impatient with all this disease stuff. I ask that you bare with me (no silly, keep your clothes on!!). Just a few more diseases and we shall be done. Then we can get on with the important things that will help you find ther perfect mate.Herpes (also known as herpes simplex virus or HSV) is a virus that most people know of as the common cold sore. Herpes is a very real issue for any daters and just because you are older, you are not immune to getting this disease.There are two types of herpes virus: HSV-1 is the virus associated with oral infection – cold sor ...
Infectious Mononucleosis is actually Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) –At your age (that's "the Jack Benny 39") it is likely that you will not be bothered with mono because you already had it. There are some concerns so let's take a look.About 95% of the world population has been exposed to this virus. Most probably never knew they had it, as symptoms are not always seen. When you do have symptoms they include fatigue, sore throat and swollen glands. The incubation period is 1 to 2 months. Most people don’t remember having contact with someone with a sore throat from that long ago, but it is p ...
I know this disease stuff is rather uncomfortable to discuss. Remember, it's even more uncomfortable to catch. Just a few more diseases to be alerted to and then we shall get back to the juicy dating stuff.You think syphilis is something you could never get. You never know! This is what finally "did in" Al Capone.Syphilis is a bacterial infection that is spread from contact with the open sores that may be present on the skin or on mucous membranes. This means you can get syphilis from kissing as well as all other forms of sex.Most people don’t get symptoms early on, which mean this diseas ...
Here we go with some more interesting facts about things you can get while dating if you aren't careful.Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection transmitted through vaginal, anal or oral sex with an infected person.Many times there are no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, a vaginal discharge (drip) or penile discharge coupled with a burning upon urination or sex may be noticed. Some men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all.
