Everyone is responsible for their own health and well being. The consensus is that anyone with an STD, then has a duty to look after the health and well being of a current/new partner by informing them of their affliction. While 24.25% of members on the Herpes dating site PositiveSingles.com thought that forced testing for STDs would prove ineffective, 75.75% regarded it as a criminal offence for people with STDs to have sexual relations without revealing their STD status. The general prognosis being that this would cut down the infection rate and make people much more aware of their sexual health.
Education is the key to teaching people that it is NOT ok to pass on an infectious virus like Herpes, without the partner’s knowledge or consent. Education is also vital in helping to understand that an STD like Herpes is not going to a death sentence, but, it is a life-long irritation that is highly contagious and will not go away. It has a stigma attached and that it is a virus that needs to be managed properly, and kept under control. But that of course depends on whether the people with Herpes or any other STD are open and honest about it before having sexual contact. Knowledge is the key to understanding the stigma attached to STDs and education is the tool to use. Everyone has the right as consenting human beings to say yes or no, and deserve the right to be able to make that decision.
