Seniors' sex lives are up and so are STD rates (Up 43% in five years!)
Los Angeles Times ^ | April 16, 2011 | Marni Jameson

Across the nation, and especially in the Sunshine State, the free-love generation is continuing to enjoy an active — if not always healthy — sex life.

At a stage in life when many would expect sexually transmitted diseases to be waning, seniors are noticeably ahead of the national curve.

In the five years from 2005 to 2009, the number of reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia among those 55 and older increased 43 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

In Central Florida, the rise is even more dramatic. Among those 55 and older, the reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia increased 71 percent in that same five-year period. That puts Central Florida ahead of the state, which saw a 62 percent rise in those two sexually transmitted infections among the same age group.

The rates at which syphilis and chlamydia increased among older adults outpaced the nation's average. Among all age groups nationwide, reported cases of syphilis increased 60 percent between 2005 and 2009; among those in the 55 to 64 age group, it went up 70 percent. Meanwhile, the incidence of chlamydia rose 27 percent among all ages, and double that among the older group.

Gee sure is funny that 10 or 20 years you NEVER heard stories like this. Ya ever though that the immoral “Baby Boomers” could be the cause of this type of thing?

Who said the ‘boomer’ generation wouldn’t ever be older and wiser? They’re older, aren’t they ?

It’s the LA Slimes, so what they are saying to America is we need the death panels of ObamaCare, because irresponsible old people are driving up the STD’s. /S

The LA Times actually picked the article up from the Orlando Sentinel, hence the Florida-centric nature of the piece. I happened to come upon it at the Times website, though.

Baby Boomers are still trying to find peace in their souls through the worship of sex.

Didn’t work for Solomon in the B.C. 600s, didn’t work in the 1960s, won’t work in the 2010s...

True! It has allowed 50-somethings to pound 20-somethings loaded with STD's.

So, I say, to pay for the medical care for these STD’s, we should raise the rates on all those folks who are overweight by 10 lbs, because those are the folks who are going to the doctors all the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone knows that this is gospel truth.

Also, raise the rates on the smokers - we have to do this to pay for the high medical costs caused by promiscuous behavior which has now infected even the older members of society.
