So, we're all in agreement that drug companies should not be allowed to advertise directly to the consumer...right? Okay. Good. Great. Grand.
Ever see the Valtrex commercial? Sure you have, but have you ever really watched that fucking thing? It's got a decent looking brunette standing with some guy. She announces that she has it, and he doesn't --- because they are careful and take Valtrex. Blah. Then the 'voice' goes on to say, "Did you know that you can contract the herpes virus from your partner even though they have no physical symptoms?"
70% of people say they contracted genital herpes when their partner had no sign of breakout.
Fair enough - I mean, 98% of statistics are made up on the spot. But, let's hypothesize that this one is accurate. That means:
30% of you herpes-havin' motherfuckers got it when your fuckbuddy had a visible outbreak that you saw before doing the hibbity-dibbity.
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
You deserve herpes if you saw it before doing the deed and still went to town. That's gross. That's worse than earning your redwings...
