Religion May Delay Treatment of STDs
A new study, Sex and Secularism, was conducted by Kansas University undergraduate Amanda Brown and Dr. Darrel W. Ray found that those from religious backgrounds receive poorer sexual education. The authors also found that sexual behavior does not differ regardless of religious affiliation, but sexual experience improves after leaving religion. In addition, the more religious the person, the more guilt they experienced.
The take away is that those that are more religious are just as prone to acquiring an STD, but their guilt may keep them from testing and treatment. This is why TestMeSTD.com comes in handy. We offer conveniently located, yet confidential testing options so that everyone has access to STD testing regardless of religious affiliation.
