Baby Boomers and STDs: You Can Stop This Trend
Yep. If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that single Baby Boomers have been guilty of practicing unsafe sex. And, all those Viagra-poppin’ daddies and their free-lovin’ mamas are contracting sexually transmitted diseases in unabashedly high numbers.
Okay, so I exaggerated a little to get your attention. However, if you’re a single gal out in the dating world again, this article is for you.
Always Use a Condom
There are lots of reasons why (otherwise) smart, responsible couples have not been using condoms. And, if you understand these issues ahead of time, you might be able to convince your new man to put that little piece of rubber on his cockadoodledo when it's time to get down to business.
Make Love Not War
Boomers grew up in an era without AIDS, when most girls were on birth control, and most guys didn’t feel the need to wear a condom. Actually, people never talked about condoms when I was a teenager... or even when I was in college. Things like that were just not discussed in polite company. (Even now, I feel a little strange writing about this, but I feel it's an important subject.)
Boomers Aren’t Stupid
On the other hand, Baby Boomers aren’t stupid. They understand how HIV is contracted. They’ve heard about Herpes and all those other STDs. However, things are a little more complicated for older, single, sexually active adults. (When you get to the video below, you'll see why.)
Dating Over 40
Dating is difficult and different when a woman is over 40 or 50. Hey, just thinking about sex with some new guy is enough to make a suddenly-single female hide under the covers, in her own bed… alone… for months. But, eventually, most women will decide to come out and jump back into the dating game.
Don't think you can use your past sexual experiences as your guide. The game has changed.
