You don't get it. You NEVER will. You have opinions about something you know nothing about. I'm done talking to you about this. Go hang out with the people who agree with your every utterance.

This is not an opinion. It's knowledge about the definition of words.

Wow. That really is kinda southern gothic. You and I could probably share some stories. I totally forget, sometimes, that Texas is as southern as North Carolina but I guess it really is. :wave

Remind me to tell you sometime about my Uncle Seth, who I never met (or even heard of) until he came to our door late one night looking for my father...when I was 15.

However you don't "carry it in your blood". You are cured. Unless exposed to it again, you will not ever, EVER get it again. You cannot give it to anyone. It is done. Gone. Cured. It's not just laying dormant. It is cured.

Cured means it no longer exists. That is inaccurate. It still exists in your blood.

No, that's not what cured means. And it doesn't "exist in your blood".

Maybe he's thinking of HPV. Doesn't that sort of "lay dormant" forever once you've got it?

In parts of the adult industry where it is legal to have sexual intercourse for money- ie, in porn and in the few parts of the US where prostitution is legal- I believe regulation and oversight is appropriate, and I believe laws enforcing that participants use protection is not out of line.
If it's legal, then it's a job, like any other.
There are safety regulations and state and federal oversight when it comes to occupational safety in every legal line of work. Deal with it.
I'm tired of hearing "But it's porn!"
All that means to me is that most of the workers in this field are very young, and it makes me even more determined to protect them. They may be naive (and you might find that funny, but it's not. Eighteen and nineteen year olds can be naive and impulsive, whether or not they work in adult entertainment). They may be uneducated. They have their whole lives ahead of them. Many of them do not yet have children, but will want them in the future. They deserve safety and protection.
It's legal. It's a job. Employees have a right and a responsibility to be safe on the job. The state has a right and a responsibility to minimize occupational hazards, as they do in every field.
