The Other Side Of Internet Sex Dating

Growing epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea and syphilis.




​​Modern sexual etiquettes require that sexually active individuals are up-to-date on their medical ​reports and share the same with potential partners; also that given the discovery of an STD in an individual, all previous sexual partners are sounded for necessary surveillance and treatment if required. However the speed dating facilitated by sex dating sites like ​tinder and grindr excludes any meaningful courtship; there is no opportunity for sharing relevant details nor is there ever a second date; no personal details are revealed and no medium of any possible future contact established. 

This has led to a growing epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhoea and syphilis among sexually active adults in US, where such diseases had become very uncommon in immunocompetent individuals. India would not be much behind either.
