I posted the information on the prior Tor MonkeyPox thread.

It's not like HIV, it's like Herpes.

It's spreads more easily. Handshakes, sharing a joint or a drink with someone, kissing.

There's no way this will remain confined to any particular group.

But this should spread slower since there's physical symptoms from the infection and people can (not necessarily will, but can) get treatment.

#2 | Posted by ClownShack at 2022-08-17 05:34 PM | Reply

Monkeypox can spread from person to person through direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs, or body fluids. It also can be spread by respiratory secretions during prolonged, face-to-face contact, or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling, or sex.

Monkeypox can spread from the time symptoms start until the rash has fully healed and a fresh layer of skin has formed. Anyone in close personal contact with a person with monkeypox can get it and should take steps to protect themselves.

www.cdc.gov

Monkeypox can spread to anyone through close, personal, often skin-to-skin contact, including:

Direct contact with monkeypox rash, scabs, or body fluids from a person with monkeypox.

Touching objects, fabrics (clothing, bedding, or towels), and surfaces that have been used by someone with monkeypox.

Contact with respiratory secretions.

Hugging, massage, and kissing.

Prolonged face-to-face contact.

www.cdc.gov


Be safe out there.

Yes Monkeypox can happen to anyone.

However so far in America 98%(+?) of those who have it are gay men.

And why did the mention it was a rectal swab unless that's likely where he got it?

FTA - Samples of both saliva and nasal swabs tested positive for the virus

Look like Tor did indeed insert in the ----.

Update: Damn, and then I read to the end and my bad joke got ruined. Tor's quote is correct. Interesting tidbit place in the ass end of the article.

Don't feel too bad I misread the end of the article.

It reads:

"However, despite no reported sexual contact, a rectal swab from the patient did test positive for the virus, which indicates "potential for sustained sexual transmission."

In other words the evidence suggests a man had sex with him.

......I'm starting to think this guy had something horrible done to him while he was high.

So by all means let's encourage gay men to engage in as much promiscuous unprotected ---- sex as possible since this one case proves such activity is low risk.

Thanks to normalization of homosexuality at younger ages, homosexuals are dating more and leading monogamous lives.

But. Let's also not ignore the fact that most guys would like nothing more than to have sex 24/7 and will have sex if the opportunity presented itself.

Yes. As clown said, due to the normalization (in no small part the legalization/recognition of gay marriage), and not having to hid relationships, monogamy is becoming more prevalent in the gay community. As you could imagine the stigma of the past put quite a bit of stress on a possible long term relationship. Add to that if your told your a pervert for being gay long enough, one might just accept that's who they must be. Times are a changing.

They're going to have to find a new name for the community soon, because being "gay" has always had connotations that were antithetical to monogamy. Back in the 19th and early 20th Century it was associated with the free love movement, regardless of orientation.

He's wrong as usual Tor, why Snoofy doesn't actually research things is beyond me.

"monogamish."

The dirty little secret about gay marriage: Most gay couples are not monogamous. We have come to accept lately, partly thanks to Liza Mundy's excellent recent cover story in the Atlantic and partly because we desperately need something to make the drooping institution of heterosexual marriage seem vibrant again, that gay marriage has something to teach us, that gay couples provide a model for marriages that are more egalitarian and less burdened by the old gender roles that are weighing marriage down these days.

Just imagine the macro dials. Do humans seek home and companionship, or not? OF COURSE monogamy will increase when marriage is available.

Gay marriage is an oxymoron. That's why there's so many divorces, when people find out it's not as happy as they thought it would be.

WTF are you talking about? Gays get divorced at MUCH LOWER rates than heterosexuals. Part of it, of course, is the relatively short historical duration of legal gay marriage, but your claim is total --------.

And OXYMORON?!? You're a moron.

"He made a claim and I'd like to see evidence."

Well, try asking yourself: did YOU become more monogamous when you got married? I mean, this isn't rocket science, it's "Which way do the macro dials turn?"

In this case, marriage turns the macro dial towards monogamy.

I suggest people look up a book called "Slang and Its Analogues", originally published in 1891 but reprinted many times since. You can find text or pdf versions of it online for free. In it you'll find the original connotations of the word "gay" (apart from its literal meaning of "happy") and see why it was a bad idea for homosexuals to appropriate that word in the first place.

What does that even mean? Are you implying that non-gay people do not have those body parts? Or that they do not interact with those areas?
