‘Sex superbug’ may sound like a cheesy teen sex comedy from the late 90s, but it’s no laughing matter. It’s in fact a drug-resistant strain of the STD gonorrhea that has people around the country worried.

It was reported last week that a drug-resistant strain of gonorrhea was found in two people in Hawaii. The finding led people to assume that it was the same ‘sex superbug’ that has been found to be immune to all forms of antibiotics. Fortunately, the Hawaiian Health Department says the case of gonorrhea it found is different from the ‘sex superbug’ strain found elsewhere.

Despite it being a different strain, the emerge of a gonorrhea that’s immune to medication should have people concerned. For years, the sexually transmitted disease was on the decline thanks to antibiotics and medication. The number of infections may rise, however, as the disease has evolved immunities to the medication used to treat it.

Peter Whiticir of the State Department of Health’s STD/AIDs Prevention Control branch confirmed that the the Hawaiian ‘sex superbug’ is, in fact, not the dreaded strain that’s completely immune to all drugs, but he does say that the current news helps remind people that these diseases are evolving.

“There is no multi-drug super resistant superbug yet in Hawaii or the United States. We don’t have the superbug in Hawaii that I repeat again, but I think it does raise people’s consciousness that gonorrhea is out there, there are new strains that are developing and evolving and we need to be aware of that and protect ourselves.”

Even if its not the dreaded ‘sex superbug,’ gonorrhea can still evolve to a point where it becomes one. As such, health officials fear that such a form of gonorrhea could be worse than AIDs. The Center for Disease Control has even asked Congress for $50 million in funding to research new treatment for gonorrhea infections just in case things go South.

Even if you have no intention of catching gonorrhea, it’s always advisable to use safe sex. You should also never be afraid to discuss STDs with any potential partner.

    I WISH PEOPLE WILL LEARN HOW TO SAFELY PROTECT THEMSELVES MORE CAREFULLY. SOME PEOPLE DO NOT CARE ABOUT GIVING YOU AIDS STDS GON. OR ANYTHING OF THAT MATTER. YES I DO HAVE CHILDREN AND YES I COULD HAVE CAUGHT SOMETHING, BUT THANK GOD I DID NOT. BUT GUESS WHAT WHEN YOU LEARN BETTER YOU DO BETTER. THAT IS HOW YOUR MIND IS SUPPOSE TO OPERATE AS BEING AN ADULT. BUT THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE WHO YOU THOUGHT WAS THE ONE AND ONLY DIAGNOSED YOU WITH A PROBLMEM THAT WILL BE WITH YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE COULD BECOME A LIFETIME OF DIASTER. SO NEXT TIME YOU GO OUT AND HAVE A NIGHT OF FUN BE CAREFUL. I DO NOT CARE IF YOU ARE WHITE, BLACK, HISPANIC, CHINESE, JAMICAN…..WHATEVER…. STDS NO KNOW RACE.

    Obama came from Kenya,where aids, syphilis, and gonorrhea are their main exports. Then he goes to Hawaii. Now Hawaii has a drug resistant virus. How is he going to blame Bush for this? Time to disinfect Martha’s Vin yard?

    Sign of the times. Many diseases that we thought were eradicated in my childhood (measles, chickenpox, etc.) are back – with a vengeance. As the moral barriers have been broken down, so have the pathological barriers against disease come down. Get back to God’s natural remedies for physical health and his unfailing remedies for spiritual wellness, and you will be blessed. He is the only cure for what really ails us all. God bless.

      Yeah, I guess your God was smiling up a storm as he watched King David with his 300 wives and 700 concubines getting it on big time.

    the CDC has debunked this story

  • Jesse

    Okay, the second to last sentence beginning “Even if you have no intention of catching gonorrhea…” Who really wakes up in the morning and thinks ‘I think I will intentionally catch gonorrhea today’? Course, with today’s youth making pregnancy pacts and whatever, it wouldn’t surprise me…

      I caught AIDS from a blow-up doll.

    Let’s all just stick to anal and everything will be all right. You in, mom?

    Yes, read the bible…”judge not lest ye be judged yourself” comes to mind. It’s not for anyone to judge someone else. No matter how they feel about it, if they think it’s wrong, or even if they know it’s wrong. God will judge those who sin NOT man.
