They say there's no fool like an old fool, and here's your proof - retirees are having problems with VD.
I guess if you're ever going to get the clap et al, that's the time - you're probably out of the reproductive race anyway, and you're likely to croak before any real long-term effects like cancer hit you.

Oh stop it - if half a century or more of near-constant messages about sex isn't enough to pound something in your head you might as well give up. And these are generations who would remember as I do when condom machines and packages always bore the warning "for prevention of disease only".
Think of that, Mom, the next time you're forcing the kids to kiss that older relative...
