Seriously. CDC says gays should stop banging random strangers to flatten the monkeypox curve

The CDC has spoken, and has advice for people with overactive sex lives: Slow down.

In published government advice that covers everything from masturbation to fetish toys, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advice for the gay community, and we quote it here, unedited:

Make a habit of exchanging contact information with any new partner to allow for sexual health follow-up, if needed.

Talk with your partner about any monkeypox symptoms and be aware of any new or unexplained rash or lesion on either of your bodies, including the mouth, genitals (penis, testicles, vulva, or vagina), or anus (butthole). If you or your partner has or recently had monkeypox symptoms, or you have a new or unexplained rash anywhere on your body, do not have sex and see a healthcare provider. In some cases, symptoms may be mild, and some people may not even know they have monkeypox.

If you or a partner has monkeypox or think you may have monkeypox, the best way to protect yourself and others is to avoid sex of any kind (oral, anal, vaginal) and kissing or touching each other’s bodies—while you are sick. Especially avoid touching any rash. Do not share things like towels, fetish gear, sex toys, and toothbrushes.

Even if you feel well, here are some ways to reduce your chances of being exposed to monkeypox if you are sexually active:

  • Take a temporary break from activities that increase exposure to monkeypox until you are two weeks after your second dose. This will greatly reduce your risk.
  • Limit your number of sex partners to reduce your likelihood of exposure.
  • Spaces like back rooms, saunas, sex clubs, or private and public sex parties, where intimate, often anonymous sexual contact with multiple partners occurs—are more likely to spread monkeypox.
  • Condoms (latex or polyurethane) may protect your anus (butthole), mouth, penis, or vagina from exposure to monkeypox. However, condoms alone may not prevent all exposures to monkeypox since the rash can occur on other parts of the body.
  • Gloves (latex, polyurethane, or nitrile) might also reduce the possibility of exposure if inserting fingers or hands into the vagina or the anus. The gloves must cover all exposed skin and be removed carefully to avoid touching the outer surface.
  • Avoid kissing or exchanging spit since monkeypox can spread this way.
  • Masturbate together at a distance without touching each other and without touching any rash.
  • Have virtual sex with no in-person contact.
  • Consider having sex with your clothes on or covering areas where rash is present, reducing as much skin-to-skin contact as possible. Leather or latex gear also provides a barrier to skin-to-skin contact; just be sure to change or clean clothes/gear between partners and after use.
  • Be aware that monkeypox can also spread through respiratory secretions with close, face-to-face contact.
  • Remember to wash your hands, fetish gear, sex toys, and any fabrics (bedding, towels, clothes) after having sex. Learn more about infection control.

    • That comment made me laugh, thanks!

      I can’t believe the CDC is only issuing such guidance in light of monkeypox… it’s just disgusting.

    • They should take the lead in this health crisis and inform us as to what they are doing to modify their lifestyles and what restrictions should be placed on the high risk community. Outdoor bath houses only? Gay restaurants and raves prohibited? Male interior decorators and fashion designers closed until the curve is flattened? All musicals cancelled until further notice?

  1. CDC whistling through the graveyard with their Monkeypox IS NOT a sexually transmitted disease schtick…
    .
    As the timeline rolls out, it seems that there is an exceedingly high potential that the CDC will reach the end of its potential to publicly out-stupid itself, if it hasn’t already. What is the mission here? Collapse the public’s faith in the agencies that we have been led to believe we can trust?
    .
    June is done, but Monkeypox Pride Month rolls on.

  2. Seriously? Or has the CDC failed to realize that the outing of gayness and promotion among youth is designed to eliminate fear and increase the very thing the CDC is warning about? This will be about as successful as the “Just say ‘No’ to drugs” campaign. The gay community has “HIV nights” so hesitant people can lose their fear by deliberately getting infected. Having the disease is better than being afraid of it? “Pox nights” anyone? While behavior change is certainly the way to stop the spread of this disease, we’ve been promoting the behavior for too long to change any of the participants’ activities. This is the way they want to live – let them – but don’t ask me to subsidize it or promote it or even call it “good”.

  3. Who cares about CDC? I mean we have Nine Dictators. It’s a small town. Everybody knows everybody eventually. It has its down sides. They need to start dictating. Anchorage Health Department must mandate greeting cards to exchange and turn in monthly. This is dangerous. The whole town needs guidance and trembling Tuesday soliloquies, or we con’t go on.

  4. How to have homosexual sex, by the CDC. Reduce number of strange partners from 10 randoms per day to only 5 per day. 50% reduction. But to be really safe, just pick up one stranger per day and you will be 90% safer. Homosex is based on a combination of compulsion and mental illness. It’s Mother Nature’s strategy for reducing this overpopulated planet.

    • Agree, doctor. They will weed themselves out of existence due to Natural Selection. Survival of the fittest will rely on the ones who follow the strict Rules of Nature and compete for health and longevity. The non-fit will die off early due to disease and immunity failure, but will struggle first, using politics and influence in a corrupt world to stay their existence and try to take many
      down with them. We are seeing this happen now, before our very eyes. The weak will perish. The strong will survive. It’s the way of Life on this planet.

    • All major religions issued such guidance the last few thousand years. My Lord! I thought it was about marriage…..NOT!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. This is the same cdc that gave our stupid dunce of a governor and his side kick lunatic zinc stink the expert advice on how to screw up your state with Covid advice
    Idiots hanging out with idiots

    • ……isn’t that what Bill Walker did with Byron Mallott for four years,……….hung out together? Two idiots. One dead. The other thinks he’s still alive? Only the underaged girl victim moved on.

  6. FALL OF ROME, END OF AMERICA WARNING/INDICATOR!

    When many won’t even be shocked by our government telling Americans:

    • Condoms…may protect your anus (butthole)…
    • Masturbate together at a distance…
    • Have virtual sex…
    • Consider having sex with your clothes on…. Leather or latex gear also…; change…gear between partners…
    • ..wash your hands, fetish gear, sex toys…

    “WITHOUT VIRTUE there can be NO LIBERTY.” – Benjamin Rush

    “Perfect FREEDOM consists in OBEYING the dictates of RIGHT REASON … where licentiousness begins, LIBERTY ENDS.” – Samuel West

    “History fails to record a single precedent in which NATIONS SUBJECT TO MORAL DECAY have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a SPIRITUAL AWAKENING to overcome the moral lapse, OR a PROGRESSIVE DETERIORATION leading to ultimate national disaster.” – Douglas MacArthur

  7. Much has been said over the last twenty years about how homosexuals are just “normal” people and that, therefore, they should not be discriminated against. That may be true in some cases. At some point, however, I saw statistic that caught my attention: That the typical homosexual had many, many more sex partners than the average heterosexual. That is a significant difference. It is interesting to see that the CDC is now discussing how to control monkeypox while skipping over this circumstance. Maybe “normal” isn’t so normal. And maybe it matters.

    • Mental illnesses should not be discriminated against. They need treatment. Normal does exist. Needing to butt plug any man is an illness. Being afraid of a penis is an illness. Illnesses can be treated. You can’t rewire a broke brain, but you can treat it.

      • We have the right to shun those not of sound mind as public servants who would receive a stipend from public trust funds.

  8. Please read the CDC’s recommendation out loud at the next Assembly meeting. And record on cell phone and report back to MRAK. Can’t wait!

  9. Wonder if Chris Constant and gang will create mandates for the gay population, for their own safety of course.

    • Of course he will. Assembly members, please reduce your banging. Time out. And get tested for Monkeypox before each live meeting. Inform all others of your medical condition, or STAY HOME!

  10. Avoid having anal sex with strangers at raves.
    Generally good advice all the time. 🙄.

    Our assembly would normally impose mandates restricting gay anal sex, but that would be too much of a personal hardship. “Rules for thee, not for me,” is their slogan.

  11. Well they were thorough. Interesting how they felt the need to explain further ‘anus’. And the ‘guidance’ fits for all sexually transmitted diseases as all are typically picked up via promiscuity. Tragic reflection of our entire culture. It isn’t just monkeypox and it isn’t just homosexuality. Lord have mercy on all of us.

    • Yeah, I’ve been saved by the welcoming community at MRAK! If only I had more guns, no vaccinations, and a fear of learning I could fit in around here. Oh, and maybe contempt for anyone not white, Christian, heterosexual, or American… (If only Suzanne would actually publish all of my comments!!!)

      • ZT:
        You sound like a lunatic who can’t find any audience. Have you tried writing an opinion piece to your psychiatrist? She might listen to you and publish it as part of her clinical diagnosis. Have fun.

      • Z Thomas, I have nothing but contempt for those, like you, who DO have contempt for people just because they happen to be white, Christian, heterosexual and American —- which describes the large majority of this nation.

      • Ah.

        So, what you seek is martyrdom, is it Z?

        Seek it somewhere else, as what you describe as you see MRAK commenters is far from what they truly are.

        What you want is abject sympathy for how you see yourself, the ultimate victim.

        What you are offered is simple empathy unto your misbegotten existence, which is not enough for one such as yourself, because you believe that WHO you are is not as important as WHAT you are, and the rest of us believe that WHO you are is far more important than WHAT you are.

        Grow up, and strive for a better SELF for yourself, rather than expect others to support your self- supported weakness, ad nauseum.

        This goes for Lucinda and others as well.

        Do not expect to display pathetic weakness of oneself and have others support it so as to somehow give you a voice.

        Either strength lies within you, or it does not.

        It is not for others to give you said strength, nor take away from it.

        Your strength is not within your perceived victimhood, and never shall be.

        If you cannot validate yourself, there is no one else that can do so either.

        Best of luck to all of you ‘victims’.

        Sigh…

  12. To flatten the curve, the CDC should: make all gay bars close by 10pm, all gays should wear masks, all gays should socially distance. Non essential gay stores and businesses should be ordered to close until further notice. Sound familiar?
