Prevention Sites Are Catching On

Cyrus Sullivan is the creator of online STD carrier database with the ominous tagline, "If we know, you will." Sullivan, of Oregon, founded the site after a roll in the hay with an infected mate. He claims that his partner did not inform him that she was infected with herpes, and had been for over a year, until after their steamy, contagious encounter.

Sullivan’s site hasn’t amounted to much beyond a few unsuspecting citizens and a handful of porn stars, but he hopes that the idea will “catch.” It’s only a matter of time before jilted lovers are lining up and reporting away and Valtrex is offering sponsorship.

The moral of the story: Use Protection!
