4. It should be a part of everyone's standard annual physical

good to be tested for peace of mind and get treatment early. The article stated more newborn babies are dying of syphilis because the mother didn't know or wasn't treated early enough.

It's also a big problem for elderly in nursing homes for various reasons.

Incel types are probably safe

6. Trump had sex with Stormy Daniels

Stormy Daniels performs various types of sex acts, includuding but not limited to oral anal and oral vaginal sex. Yes, when trump kissed her, he was kissing every butthole she ever licked! Then he took his @$$face home to his pregnant wife and kissed her with those dookie smelling lips. I hope the flotus got tested.

8. Well, I'm no admirer of the 3rd wife

but I believe that at some point she had the wisdom to cut red don off from further intimate contact. For her sake I hope early enough to prevent even worse physical risk.

15. My friends moved to a senior area and STDs are very common there.

The Villages in FL has a reputation in the state for having some pretty wild seniors.
