Los Angeles County health officials have opened an internet website on which users can anonymously notify their sex partner of having been infected with a sexually transmitted disease.
The site, www.InSPOTLA.org, which opened on Wednesday, offers different types of electronic postcards to simultaneously e-mail up to six sexual partners of being infected with an STD.
“You’re too hot to be out of action,” reads one card, featuring the back of a handsome man covering his behind with a towel. “I got diagnosed with an STD since we played. You might want to get checked too.”
The site gives information about several of the most common STDs and how to prevent them.
Another card reads: “It’s not what you brought to the party, it’s what you left with. I left with an STD. You might have too. Get checked soon.”
The internet is all about bringing people together with common interests, but I’m not sure anyone saw this one coming. Who knows, perhaps this will catch on in other states as well. Leave it to California to lead the way!
