It seems that if people choose to get involved in high risk behaviors they should at least have the common sense to practice safe sex. I'm still wondering that many people are old enough and still can be so naive,I think that we human beings are tend to think when it comes to safe sex,that we think it will not happen to me,maybe to someone else but not me and that's another reason of not doing anything that prevent spreading sex diseases.
Some people deserve what they get. And some people I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. Does this only refer to the rusty metal chain swings, or even the new ones with the plastic covering the chains?

Probably because the rate of infection is much smaller and not as scary-sounding as " The article claims older swingers have unsafe sexual habits, yet they likely have an infection rate much lower than younger people both swinging and nonswinging, so if they aren't practicing safe sex then they must be having many fewer encounters.
Laura, The number of swingers, and in particular older, 45 swingers, in the study wasn't anywhere near How many of those are 45? My guess is a substantial minority, since the lifestyle appeals to married people and not single people who can have new partners anytime with less criticism. As I claimed in my other comment, there is a reason the author never mentioned the STD infection rates of older swingers: That being said, your brainy critique is a big turn-on.
The entire survey population is of people who were tested for STDs. Just how does this fit in with the concern that older people don't know enough to get tested? Swingers, in fact, are probably more likely to be tested regularly.
The basic problem with this study: Prostitutes in the netherlands that go to an STD clinic may be getting tested frequently i. Straight folks and swingers are more likely to only go for STD testing when they have a symptom.

Yet when you donate blood one of the exclusion questions is "have you been with a prostitute" Something is screwy with this study, and it is not just the swingers.
Karen "the concern is that because older people are not as well educated about sexually transmitted diseases as their younger partners, they don't regularly practice safe sex or get regular screenings to detect infections.

Barbara on Get Some Sleep: And as couples get to know each other, they tend to trust that everyone is "clean," she added. Randi recalled being at a party once and she asked one of the men she met if he had condoms.
At another dinner party later on, she mentioned this encounter to another couple. A new study suggests that older swingers, as a group, should be considered high risk for sexually transmitted infections. Researchers from The Netherlands found that older swingers made up 12 percent of clients who visited an outpatient sexual health clinic. Based on their findings, the researchers concluded that, "[s]wingers, like other groups with risk behaviors, need to be identified and treated as a risk group in STI prevention and care.
In the study, swingers were defined as heterosexual couples who swapped partners, engaged in group sex or visited sex clubs for couples. They registered as swingers when they visited the clinic.
All it takes is one person to infect a number of others," said Dorree Lynn, a Washington, D. The study findings are also consistent with statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that show that people between the ages of 55 and 64 account for about 10 percent of all gonorrhea cases and 9 percent of all chlamydia cases nationwide.
Indeed, past research suggests that age is no barrier to a spicy sex life, something to which Dale Koppel can attest. Koppel was no "swinger.
I wasn't going to make a big deal about it," she said. But Koppel, now 67, said her wild times started relatively late, when she dated more than men she met online after she split from her husband of nearly 25 years.
But while she was dating -- and though she said she only had sex with a few of the men she dated -- she said she discovered that most of the men she met were not interested in practicing safe sex. Despite her habitual risky behavior, she never contracted a sexually transmitted infection. Koppel said she believes that Viagra is partially to blame for the promiscuity she encountered.
