Just My Thoughts

So there is a wonderful blog that I have been following called "Curvaceous in the City" and I must admit I like the blog. There was one post that she wrote titled, Thanks for Last Night... Ok here is my issue everyone is entitled to their own opinion, its a natural birth right and there is nothing wrong with that, but dont try to down talk a group of people because their actions and beliefs are different than yours. its just not right. thats just my opinion. now like i said everyone is entitled to their own thoughts so you can disagree with me if you want i promise i wont lose any sleep. now back to what i was saying she wrote a post called thanks for last night and although it was nothing but pure entertainment to me i could not help but disagree with the points that she was trying to make. now she states that having sex with people other than your boyfriend/ girlfriend, husband/wife or whomever you are in a monogomous relationship puts you at higher risk of contracting std's/sti's and that this person is reckless.... my thoughts are this, just because you are in a monogomous relationship with someone does not mean that you are not at risk for these same things. granted you are having sex with one person, but you dont know what your partner is doing when they are not around you and you damn sure dont know what they have done before you, so unless you two went and got tested together before having any kind of sexual contact/intercourse then you are at just as much risk as anyone else, whether you are monogomous with this person or not.

and just because you have sex with someone who is not your significant other whether its a friends with benefits situation or one night stand that does not mean that you do not respect yourself or your body. i feel like that is a misconception that aims to categorize people to make one group feel higher than the other.

EVERYONE SHOULD GET TESTED WHETHER COMMITTED OR NOT. NOT JUST THOSE WHO ARE HAVING SEX OR HAS HAD SEX WITH SOMEONE WHO IS NOT THEIR PARTNER.. SEX IS SEX ANYWAY YOU PUT IT, YOU ARE ENGAGING IN RISKY BEHAVIOR AND SHOULD BE TESTED. I DONT CARE IF YOU ARE SINGLE, MARRIED, COMMITTED OR ANYTHING ELSE. IF YOU ARE HAVING SEX OR HAVE HAD SEX YOU NEED TO BE TESTED AT LEAST EVERY SIX MONTHS... NOW THAT IS THE RESPONSIBLE THING TO DO.

HIV is real. STD's are real. People get your head out of the clouds and take care of yourself.

I can cosign with this. Even if you're in a relationship, you should still get tested...don't trust your partner and do you/protect you.
