Los Angeles California (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
PositiveSingles.com, the online dating website for people who live with Herpes, HIV, HPV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD), today announced the results of the survey it carried out on Monday, 10th March 2014 to its 1,500 online participants.
The survey was created so that the PositiveSingles team could gage how much information its members knew about Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s) before being infected and to raise awareness about STD’s, which is vitally important.
The results were surprising as the survey yielded that nearly 80% of the people asked knew little about STD’s. Interestingly, 25% of the participants asked did not know how they got infected, but did know how STD’s are transferred.
As the 80% margin had no real concept about STD’s, there’s little wonder at all why they did not use protection whilst having sexual relations. It is important to note that many never fully grasped how severe the consequences of contracting an STD were, which explains the millions of STD carriers worldwide.
Even after watching movies and reading stories related to STD’s, many have thought “That could never happen to me”. The 2013 biographical drama film: Dallas Buyers Club, which recently won Oscars at the 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood, portrayed the lives of people who are living with HIV and AIDS and how they struggle to fight against it. There are parallels with the survey conducted by PositiveSingles and the movie as many people know little about AIDS until it is too late.
As the largest and most trusted online dating site for people living with Herpes, HPV, HIV / AIDS, Hepatitis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and other STDs, PositiveSingles.com is completely anonymous and cares about members’ privacy more than other sites. You are not required to submit any information that you are not comfortable with on this site.
