Straight Online Sex: Uh, What Condom?

According to this article and recent study:

"It's confirmed: Online dating is the way to go if you're looking to get lucky. According to a recent survey published by the Sexuality Research and Social Policy research journal, one-third of women who meet people online have sex on the first date, and a whopping three-quarters of those surveyed do not use a condom. Meanwhile, a mere 27-percent engage in oral sex on the first day."

Researchers attribute the sex-on-first-date to be caused by the sense of familiarity people gain by having several casual or lengthy conversations online prior to meeting. This sense also causes people to feel more trustworthy or knowing of their partner which makes them less likely to use a condom.

Uh...hello, straight women? Despite how crude this may sound: You can get rid of that unwanted pregnancy. You can never get rid of those unwanted herpes. Wrap it up!

No kidding! And they like to call us sexually irresponsible.

One-third of women who meet people online have sex on the first date? I don't believe it. I recently signed up to a STD dating site named pozgroup.com. They claim they are the most trusted, largest and anonymous STD dating and support site. Women on that site are very caution to give out their personal information, not to mention go out for a date. Maybe, that is because they have been infected with STD, even hurt by some men in the past?
