    Given that the most at risk are those who've had a lot of sexual partners, most people on TSR are safe...

    I got my hopes up and was preparing for the cancer till I realised it was sexually transmitted. Yep, I’m never getting this form of cancer.

      A sudden societal push towards having many sexual partners introduces a new vector for epidemics to spread. Who knew? :rolleyes:
