Philly #1 in std cases

Something to keep in mind...

The vast majority (I'd wager 95%+) of people with STDs aren't dropping hundreds for an hour with an Asian girl. Can I prove this? No. But it is logical when you consider all aspects of this hobby and the population in and around Philadelphia.

That's not to say mongers can't catch shit, absolutely they can. And of course your chances are way higher than people who are monogamous or abstinent.

But the high cost of entry does affect access and I believe that restriction helps keep mongering safer. I would never say "safe" because that's unrealistic, but, if this many people in Philly monger scene had STDs most of us would had multiple instances of infection.

I never did a survey but just based on all the threads over the years, it sure doesn't seem that's the case. So which is it? Everyone is hiding/lying about their STDs or mongering STD instance is no where near what it is in Philly "generally"?

I think the latter is the most likely. My 2 cents.

I don’t think those numbers are just men who have STDs. And, I agree, I have never seen statistics that high.
The statistics mention did not break it down to men and women. The only reason I said "men" was there are not any (very few, lol) women going to AMP's. I would actually be more nervous picking up a civilian girl at a bar and having unprotected sex. I agree a lot with what Jim H said too. It is a little like Russian Roulette, all though, you have only one bullet in hundreds of guns to choose from. So far, I have not found the bullet yet.

To your other question, I have heard that some of the providers do occasional testing, to ease their own minds.

whether these stats are exaggerated or on the mark, it is should serve as a key reminder to be on top of your sexual health; routine testing for STDs is a must, consider looking into PREP (free w/health insurance), and also think 2wice b4 considering BB. As someone who learned the hard way, I stick to my guns now and keep it wrapped, even when the temptation arises. Also keep in mind that bbj doesn't make you immean to stds, and you can catch oral gonorrehea/chlamydia just from kissing someone (learned this the hard way!). A lot of yall have a bare oral fixation, please make you guys get throat swabs when you get tested!

A bout a year ago, I had a date with a provider (indie, non-amp) and she told me something interesting during an intimate conversation. She doesn't always do it, but she does go bare with providers if they ask. I asked her if she had ever been tested or any cared about catching STDs, her reply simply was "its the risks you take in this world". That scared the living daylights out of me, and even if its a bit extreme I just assume every chick doing the same thinks the same way. AMP or not. Yall should think the same way. Good day.

I was at an old amp on Samson once and the girl left some kind of antibiotic cream for her vag on the table. I ran out and honestly I never stuck my dick in an amp girl again.
I am not brining anything home. I have learned to settle for a good massage and finish. Way safer. These people getting blown under the L and eating out amp girls are wild.
I miss backpage when you could see a good Indy massage girl and develope a relationship. Sometimes it could escalate over time but you had to earn their trust. Y’all trying bareback a girl that sees 10 guys a day is insane.

My hot take is the stis are probably mainly among teens and early twenties, elderly people in nursing homes, drug users, and the poor. Don't get me wrong this hobby is high risk, but if stis were super common there would be a lot less people regularly enjoying spas.

Is it insane? Life is also sexually transmitted, we are hard wired as human beings. Between the history of cultural repression about sex in the US and whatever is going on now with the aftermath of "Me Too", incels, etc....this could be its own thread.

@Willywild - with what you and Jim said I worry about the guy who has a couple of bad months financially and takes their mongering to the street level. Then returns to places guys on here frequent when they can afford it. Maybe I'm just paranoid. It may start with teenagers and the poor, but there will definitely be opportunities for cross pollination into other high risk areas.

I can't imagine going to the streets for any reason. If that was an option, why would be going to spas or more expensive options in the first place?

Absolutely agree. And that is a risk. But you know what's likely a bigger risk?

There has been an uptick in posts of guys seeing transgender, there's even a thread in the general forum about would you let a guy give you a BJ, and many mongers in there admit to being bisexual.

I'm not against gay people but its a fact of life that gay sex is more risky for STI transmission. So these guys have sex with other guys then going to providers, scares me more than the scenario you described because I think that scenario is clearly more likely and happening more than I realized prior to reading these threads.

High stats for STD's in Philly is driven by the huge numbers of poor, extremely poor, stupid, extremely stupid, drug addicted, homosexual, transwhatever, low self esteem, and devil may care population in Philadelphia. Philly welcomes and encourages these subsets of humans. The dumbfuck policies created and sustained by the city government are designed to keep simple minded people feeble, needy, and completely dependent on society to barely keep them alive. When vast numbers of people are on their knees, acting like wild savages, with no hope for a better future, only then do the powers to be keep the stoking the fire, keeping everyone stupid and helpless. THAT is why a stat for STD's in Philly is disproportionately high, the city created a petri dish of organisms prone to activity that surges STD. People on the Main Line like to fuck as much as anyone in the city, but not much of an STD problem there.

Yup, stay away from the Street gals and the super cheap Skip the Games girls. You get what you pay for. Philly has the biggest open air drug market on the East Coast and I am sure all kinds of desperate types are willing to do the riskiest things. It doesn't take much for the averages to spike up. Most hard core addicts aren't spending this kind of money for West Coast services let along even AMP level services. Most will party with a $25-$40 street gal. Yes, this is pure speculation on my part but I don't think I am out too far on any limbs here.

Always be on the look out for hard drug use with any professional lady. That is usually the big flag, that leads towards these kinds of problems. While rather rare at an AMP I have seen signs of it a few times but it was rather obvious and the responsible AMP owners usually kick those girls out quickly. There are busts but a bust along with drugs found creates a whole new level of problems that is never worth the hassles especially if the media gets a hold of it. I have encountered may addicts at AMPs usually they are running off to AC for an all night bender at the casino.

I know with most independent sex workers they would religiously test. I’m talking the tryst, and Eros ad girls. I’ve always wondered about the AMP girls. But I feel like the cost of entry to AMP girls usually bar the typical suspects of STD carriers. IE dudes that randomly sleep around with whoever they can get and same for girls that do the same.
