I've often wondered how different individual people (with their respective
individual predispositions) would be if we didn't have STDs. Two forms of
"permanent-you'll-have-it-all-your-life-type" STDs, while not lethal, can
be passed on to partners during sexual intercourse EVEN IF condoms are used:
the human papilloma virus (aka "warts") and herpes. Compounded by the
problem that many people who have one or both of these STDs don't even know
it (and subsequently pass it on to others).
