10 STDs and STIs (sexually transmitted infections and diseases) escorts should be concerned about

Escorts need to be constantly aware that regardless of how careful and cautious they are with clients, the risk of becoming infected with an STD or an STI is always present. (And, the more sex an escort has, the higher the risk becomes.) Honest and open conversations with your gynecologist can help to educate you on ways to protect yourself from various infections and diseases. Condom use with each and every client is necessary to prevent the spread of STDs. However, in order to truly protect yourself, you should be aware of some of the infections you might encounter. Here is a small list of some common STDs and infections:

  1. Vaginal infections. Because a vaginal area contains several different kinds of bacteria that are balanced together in a healthy way, anything that upsets that balance may cause an infection or things to just be out of the ordinary. Dirty fingers, numerous sexual partners and encounters, fecal matter contamination, latex and other things incurred through vigorous sexual regimen may upset the healthy vagina’s balance. Yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, urinary tract infections and other imbalances may cause irregular discharge, pain and odd sensations.
  2. Crabs/genital lice. Crabs are body lice that live within the nether regions (or genitals). Attaching themselves to pubic hair or skin, crabs bite the host (as they are a parasitic insect) and leave a trail of itchy, red bumps. Crabs are easily gotten rid of with an over-the-counter treatment available at most pharmacies.
  3. Molluscum contagiosum. A skin disease, molluscum contagiosum causes bumps and lesions to break out of the entire body. Although it is curable, it is also very contagious. People with weakened immune systems are very susceptible to this disease.
  4. Chancroid. Passed through skin-to-skin contact, this disease causes bumps and lesions to break out all over the genitals. It is rarely found in the United States, however it is found regularly in tropical regions.
  5. Chlamydia. Usually symptomless, chlamydia may be transmitted through all forms of sexual intercourse (vaginal, oral and anal). Curable, it usually causes no terminal damage. However, if it is left untreated, it may permanently damage a woman’s reproductive system.
  6. Gonorrhea. Curable, gonorrhea is transmitted through all sexual intercourse. It is usually accompanied by only mild symptoms of discomfort and unusual discharge. While it is usually fairly innocuous when treated, it can cause damage to one’s reproductive system, blood and joints that may be lasting and serious.
  7. Herpes. Type I herpes is usually around the mouth in the form of cold sores. However, if someone with an outbreak of herpes Type I performs oral sex on someone, an outbreak of herpes Type I may occur on the genital area. Herpes Type II is highly contagious and possibly fatal to unborn children. People with herpes Type II experience outbreaks of lesions on and inside their genital area. Contagious even when an outbreak isn’t present, Herpes is an incurable disease.
  8. HPV (Human papillomavirus). Consisting of several viruses, HPV can cause different symptoms, but the most commonly noted is genital warts. Genital warts may be removed by your gynecologist. Other strains of HPV affect cervices and cause cell changes related to cervical cancer. HPV often cures itself, unless advanced cells manifest themselves on a cervix. The cells can be removed by a physician, which should usually result in normal pap smears.
  9. Syphilis. Incurable, syphilis attacks one’s internal organs, central nervous system and joints and may cause dementia. Treatment can manage the disease, but it will never cure it.
  10. HIV/AIDS. Another incurable illness, HIV/AIDS infects a person through the exchange of body fluids including blood, semen, saliva, pre-ejaculatory fluid and breast milk. The only way to avoid transmission of HIV/AIDS is through the proper use of a condom each and every time one engages in sexual activity with another person.
