Warning to ABSTAIN From Sex As MonkeyPox Cases Jump 70% – Monkeypox Spreading Primarily Through (Homosexual) Sex
~Post Updated Below, June 3, 2022~
I just saw some news headlines the other day that say that this Monkeypox virus spreads more or faster among homosexual sex acts. I’ll have to link to those headlines later – some of them were in articles on The Atlantic (I already embedded the Atlantic tweets below, way below under the “Related Links” section).
It pays to be celibate! When you’re not having sex with other people, you avoid most of this type of thing.
People use celibacy or virginity as insults to shame people over, as if to say, if you’re a virgin over the age of 18, or you’re sexually abstaining, you may get insulted by some in various cultures for supposedly being a loser of sorts, or being pathetic. There’s nothing loser or pathetic about avoiding Monkeypox, genital warts, genital crabs, and all sorts of other diseases.

Another 71 cases of monkeypox have been identified in England over the weekend bringing the UK total to 179, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) says.
New guidance is advising anyone with the virus to abstain from sex while they have symptoms.
They are also told to use condoms for eight weeks after an infection as a precaution.
The risk to the population is low, but people should be alert to new rashes or lesions, the UKHSA says.
… Anyone with a confirmed infection is now being advised to abstain from sex while they have symptoms.
The guidance says that while there is currently no available evidence that monkeypox can be spread in sexual fluids, people confirmed to have the virus are advised to use condoms for eight weeks after infection as a precaution.

An outbreak of the monkeypox virus in North America and Europe is primarily spreading through sex among men with about 200 confirmed and suspected cases across at least a dozen countries, World Health Organization officials said Monday.
The outbreak has quickly advanced across Europe and North America over the last week and is expected to be far more widespread as more doctors look for the signs and symptoms.
Two confirmed and one suspected case of monkeypox in the U.K. were reported to the WHO just 10 days ago, the first cases this year outside of Africa where the virus has generally circulated at low levels over the last 40 years, the organization said.
…While the virus itself is not a sexually transmitted infection, which are generally spread through semen and vaginal fluids, the most recent surge in cases appears to have been spread among men who have sex with other men, WHO officials said, emphasizing that anyone can contract monkeypox.
“Many diseases can be spread through sexual contact. You could get a cough or a cold through sexual contact, but it doesn’t mean that it’s a sexually transmitted disease,” said Andy Seale, who advises the WHO on HIV, hepatitis and other sexually transmitted infections.
The virus is spread through close contact with people, animals or material infected with the virus. It enters the body through broken skin, the respiratory tract, the eyes, nose and mouth. Though human-to-human transmission is believed to occur through respiratory droplets as well, that method requires prolonged face-to-face contact because the droplets cannot travel more than a few feet, according to the CDC.

UK monkeypox cases jump 70% in just three days to 179 as health chiefs say anyone who develops a new rash should abstain from SEX
Another 71 cases of monkeypox have been spotted among Britons, as health chiefs urge anyone who develops a new rash to abstain from sex.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said the new patients are all based in England. It brings the UK total to 179 since the first was detected on May 6, with the figure soaring 69 per cent since Friday — the biggest jump yet.
Almost all of the infections have been logged in England, apart from four logged in Scotland, two in Northern Ireland and one in Wales.
UK health chiefs insist the risk to the public remains low. But they have urged everyone to be on the lookout for new rashes or lesions on any part of their body — which appear like spots, ulcers or blisters.
The UKHSA has not shared the age, region or gender of those infected with monkeypox. But the majority are men who have sex with men, so it has told these groups to be particularly aware of the virus’s tell-tale signs.
UK health chiefs today published guidelines on how to limit the spread of monkeypox, including advising infected people to abstain from sex until they’re symptoms are gone and to use condoms for 2 months after their infection.
It comes as the World Health Organization today upgraded the threat from the virus to ‘moderate’.
The WHO said the explosion of cases with no links to each other or Africa means the current figure is ‘likely to be an underestimate’.
It has warned that if infections continue to happen then vulnerable people and children — who are more likely to die from the virus — could start to catch it.
So far the outbreak, which was first detected in early May, has spread to 24 countries, with the UK, Spain and Portugal logging the most infections.
Dr Ruth Milton, senior medical advisor at UKHSA, said: ‘We are continuing to work closely with our colleagues in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to ensure we are aligned in our approach to reducing the risk of transmission of Monkeypox in the UK.
‘We are reminding people to look out for new spots, ulcers or blisters on any part of their body.
‘If anyone suspects they might have these, particularly if they have recently had a new sexual partner, they should limit their contact with others and contact NHS 111 or their local sexual health service as soon as possible, though please phone ahead before attending in person.
‘This will help us to limit the virus being passed on.’
Teams from the UK Health Security Agency are contacting high-risk contacts of confirmed cases and advising them to self-isolate at home for three weeks and avoid contact with children.
…. Reported cases have so far been mild but there is a risk the virus has a ‘greater health impact’ if it spreads to at-risk people, including children and immunocompromised people, such as some HIV patients, who ‘may be especially at risk of more severe disease’.
… The WHO warned there is a ‘high risk’ of further spread of the virus though skin-to-skin contact between families and sexual partners, as well as due to contact with contaminated materials, such as utensils, bedding and clothing.

Gay and bisexual men should avoid oral sex and positions that involve face-to-face contact to limit the spread of monkeypox, a charity has said.
The LGBT Foundation has released sexual health advice for men who have sex with men, who have made up the majority of new cases of the virus.
Monkeypox relies on prolonged close contact to spread, meaning it can be passed on during sex — although it is not classified as a sexually-transmitted infection.
…The LGBT Foundation – a Manchester-based charity – has urged people to choose sex positions that are not face-to-face to reduce physical contact.
It said: ‘Consider having sex in front of a mirror if you want to see your partner’s face whilst having intercourse.
‘Think about how you can reduce contact — perhaps now is the time to try out some clothed role-play or that glory hole fantasy.’
The majority of monkeypox cases in the fresh outbreak have been in gay and bisexual men and have been linked to raves, festivals and sex parties in Europe.
The LGBT Foundation said men should also consider masturbating more and cleaning fetish clothing and equipment to reduce the spread of the virus.
…The LGBT Foundation published 10 recommendations for sexually active gay and bisexual men to limit their risk of catching or spreading monkeypox.
Its first guideline tells people ‘the fewer people, the better’ when it comes to sexual partners.
The charity also recommends people avoid having sex on dirty surfaces or use wipes to clean them before and after.
Masturbating together — rather than full penetrative sex — is advised because ‘activity with less close contact will reduce the risk of some infections’.

A man in Texas has warned monkeypox was ‘complete hell’ and ‘100 times worse than Covid’ after catching it — as cases in the United States topped 2,000.
Luke Shannahan, who works as a bartender in Dallas, revealed in an interview that the disease left him suffering a 101F fever, headache and swollen lymph nodes making him look ‘like a frog’ just two days after he was told he had been exposed.
Blisters then erupted all over his body that were so painful it felt like ‘someone was taking a potato peeler to your skin’ whenever they brushed against something.
Shannahan was administered a monkeypox vaccine after he was diagnosed, but still became bedridden for two days and felt so ill he feared for his life.
