A couple of weeks ago I reached out to a friend I hadn’t hear from for a while. We always traded sex stories and tips on Southeast Asian sex workers on a regular basis. It was weird when the conversation dried up on his end. Little did I know resistant gonorrhea was to blame.
After I got back in touch with him, he admitted that he was down and out of the game. He picked up a dose of the clap that wouldn’t go away. He had been to the doctor twice in two weeks, but his dick was still dripping like a leaky faucet. Sex was the last thing on his mind.
Once I found out that my buddy picked up such a nasty bug doing the same kind of stuff I do, I got worried. Of course I turned to Google, which only made me worry more. I spent so much time researching gonorrhea that I finally know how to spell it without using spellcheck. Finally I figured some stuff out. Here’s are my conclusions.
What is resistant gonorrhea?
Gonorrhea is one of the most common diseases in the world. Every year 78,000,000 people get the clap around the world. It’s spread by sexual contact, and we’re all horny. Up until now it was easy to treat with simple antibiotics. Now new resistant strains of gonorrhea have emerged. That’s probably why my friend’s treatment failed.
There’s only one remaining recommended treatment left for gonorrhea. That’s dual therapy with the antibiotics ceftriaxone and azithromycin. In the US the usual regimen is 250mg of ceftriaxone and 1g of azithromycin. In Asia, they’ve doubled that because resistance is so common. Down in New Zealand doctors are told to give “ceftriaxone 500 mg IM stat” plus a gram of Zithromax.
I don’t know if there’s anything official in Thailand, but I’ve heard that doctors in Bangkok now routinely give 500mg ceftriaxone and 1 gram of Azithromycin. If resistant gonorrhea is going to be anywhere, it’s Bangkok! One article I found online even spells it out. “Antibiotic resistant gonorrhea has historically spread east to the US from Asia.”
Gonorrhea has developed resistance for many years. Each time a new medicine was used. The problem now is that there are no more medicines to use. We’ve reached “the end of the line” for antibiotics, and it doesn’t look like anything new is even being developed.
Prostitutes and resistant gonorrhea
I don’t know if prostitutes are more likely to carry resistant gonorrhea. It probably depends on the woman we’re talking about. But chicks who suck hundreds of dicks each year have got to be at a higher risk of carrying it in their throats at the very least.
Even sex workers who are smart enough to get tested for STDs aren’t getting their throats swabbed. It’s just not the way tests for sexually transmitted infections are done. Those pharyngeal infections are apparently harder to detect and even to cure. On top of that, I think they’re more likely to be spread to guys.
Why is that? Well, a lot of guys do wear condoms when they are having sex with prostitutes. Most guys don’t wear condoms when they are getting head. One reason for that is that oral sex with condom doesn’t feel as good. Another is that oral sex is considered “very low risk.” Some experts say there’s actually no chance of getting HIV from receiving a blow job. So why rubber up?
Gonorrhea acquired from a blowjob
I don’t know how easy it is to get gonorrhea from a blowjob. It definitely doesn’t happen all the time. If it did, I and many others would be walking around with drippy dicks too. My friend says he never has vaginal intercourse without a condom, and I believe it. It’s not something he needs to lie to me about. He told me he thinks he got the clap from a deep throater he’s been regularly going to in Bangkok for years. He’s not sure though. He gets his dick sucked pretty often.
It seems like getting some throat would be the most likely way to pick up gonorrhea from a blowjob. Your cock is actually back there rubbing against the tissue. I do know that gonorrhea can infect the throat, so this seems to make sense. Then again, I’m no doctor!
In the US, gonorrhea is a reportable disease. The government keeps records and tracks the development of resistance. Other developed countries probably do too. But what about places like Thailand that are full of blowjob bars? I highly doubt most of the women are getting tested. Even if they are it is being done in small local clinics. No one is probably keeping samples and sending them to a central database.
Chicks in blowjob bars make their living giving head. Do you think they’re going to stop working just because they get a scratchy throat? That’s even if they even notice. Half of women who are infected with gonorrhea have no symptoms and don’t even know it. So what are we going to do?
Treating resistant gonorrhea
My friend was finally cured of gonorrhea after the third treatment. From what he told me, they basically just kept doubling his medicine. Finally it was 1 gram of Ceftriaxone shot into his ass and 2 grams of azithromycin in pills taken together that fixed him. He confirmed it days later with a test of cure, but he admitted to me that he still feels some discomfort down there. I wanted to find out more but he started giving me a cold vibe when I was asking a lot of questions. I can understand where he is coming from. I’m glad he got his gonorrhea cleared up. I knew he would.
Even the guy who picked up the worst gonorrhea in the world has been cured. It took an actual IV drip of drugs to clear him up, but they finally beat the bacteria. That doesn’t mean it will always be that way though.
Resistant gonorrhea is just going to get worse. The University of Minnesota just reported that experts expect it as much as I do. Not enough is being done to battle this new form of the illness. In fact “federal and state funding for STD prevention programs has been cut in recent years.”
Unless governments get off their asses and get more active we can expect super resistant gonorrhea to become more common. That means we are going to have to protect ourselves on our own initiative. No one else is going to do it for us. I might be sticking to handjobs for a while.
