When we think of April, we think of warming weather, the Easter Bunny, and the clap. Oh, you don’t? Well, then you must not realize that April is Sexually Transmitted Diseases Month! And to help celebrate, an organization called STD Carriers profiled 100 Celebrities with STD’s. The group is trying to keep the spread of sexually transmitted diseases to a minimum. We’re amazed that they were able to keep the list at 100 celebrities who have STD’s. Among the afflicted are actress Anne Heche, who has genital herpes and Keith Richards, who has Hepatitis C. Their website shows pictures of each celebrity in a before and after shot to show how the disease has affected their looks over the years. We were surprised to learn that it wasn’t just Hollywood celebrities that were listed. There are some carriers right here in D.C. Author Andrew Sullivan has HIV and WaPo’s own Gene Weingarten ALLEGEDLY has Hepatitis C. In this swamp of casual sex that we call Washington, make sure that you don’t follow their example and throw a joy bag on before you make the beast with two backs.
