Venereal Disease

This was written in the happy days before AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) and antibiotic resistant syphilis

Now everything up to now has been sweetness and light and promiscuity. Promiscuity? What about venereal diseases then? As you might expect, god has arranged it so that both syphilis and gonorrhea can be passed through homosexual contact. Theoretically v.d. Should be a major problem for the gay world because of this couchant promiscuity, but it is not. The reason fur this is that the symptoms for both diseases are far easier to detect in the male than in the female and thus it is ear less likely for a guy to pass either of them on without knowing it than it is for a girl. Also gay guys are quite careful about keeping track of names and addresses of all contacts so that if a case is discovered, all the contacts and their contacts even unto the seventh generation can he checked before the foul contagion spreads too far.

Syphilis is by far the more dangerous of the two diseases because it is harder to detect and because if left untreated, in the tertiary (big word for third) phase it rots your brain and spinal chord causing heart attacks, paralysis, blindness, or even (shudder) insanity. Fortunately it is the rarer of the two diseases.

The first symptom is a small painless sore 0.32 cm (0.12 in) to 1.27 cm (½ in) in diameter that can occur anywhere on your body — the penis, the chest, the rectum, (where it feels like a hemorrhoid) or in the mouth. All you need to do is touch a sore to contact syphilis yourself; you do not have to get pus on yourself; you do not have to have an orgasm. The sore shows up 10 days to 3 months after contact and it heals itself in a few days to a few weeks. During this phase the chancre (fancy name fur sore) is highly infectious. If detected in this phase, syphilis is very easy to cure — two massive shots of penicillin are injected into your rump.

If left untreated, the secondary phase begins 4 to 8 weeks after the chancre has disappeared. In this phase syphilis can easily be mistaken for other diseases as the symptoms include: sores in the mouth, sore throat, a skin rash, enlarged glands (particularly about the genitals(, sores on the sexual organs, swollen joints, fever, headache, pain in the bones and joints and even hair falling out in patches. These symptoms will disappear themselves and will reappear occasionally for about 4 years. It still can be cured in this phase but the sores are still highly infectious. They are so infectious that germs from sores in the mouth can be passed even by kissing.

Later (by this time it is almost too late) the disease becomes non-infectious and latent. All the ghastly things I mentioned earlier slowly start to happen. Gonorrhea, er clap as it is commonly called, is more prevalent. If you are an exclusive lesbian you will not get the clap. If you screw someone who has gonorrhea (whether or not you have an orgasm) then you may notice a smarting or burning sensation when you urinate from 2 to 9 days after becoming infected. Drops of yellowish pits may ooze from the penis. The pus is highly infectious and may by carelessly passed to the eyes or rectal area causing additional troubles there. It is easily cured at this stage, since it is still localized in the urinary canal of the penis. It gradually spreads to the prostate gland, sperm canals and seminal vesicles and even the bladder. Then it is possible that some of true ducts will become permanently scarred causing blockage which. Results in sterility you never know — someday you might want to have a kid) or difficulty in passing urine. If someone who has gonorrhea screws you, then perhaps you will notice a mucous discharge from your rectum, but more likely you will notice nothing and you will have to rely on your contact to inform you if he develops gonorrhea of the penis. If you suck the penis of a person who has gonorrhea (whether or not he has an orgasm) you may get a very sore throat and may notice a mucous discharge from your throat.

What do you do if you have the slightest suspicion that you have V.D. Go to any hospital and they will give you a free checkup and if you have it, they will cure you free — including drugs — so don’t worry about the shekels. In Vancouver we have special V.D.. Clinics. The guys who run them are not too moralizing, but that does nut stop them from getting a few digs in. They have seen hundreds of homosexuals before you and won’t bat an eye should it come out that you are gay. There is a clinic every weekday from 2:30 to 3:30 each afternoon at 306 Abbott. The main clinic is at 828 west 10th open 8:30 A.M. To 1:00 P.M. And 2:00 P.M. To 4:30 P.M. Every weekday. If you work during the day tell your boss you are going to a doctor’s appointment. A clinic doctor will give you a note to give your boss that attests that you really did go. To a doctor’s appointment, but that says nothing about V.D..
