POTD 2/1/12 Some Straight Talk on STDs from (the ever awesome) Mollena

Over on her blog, Mollena has written an excellent post about her experience being diagnosed as HSV positive. Perhaps more important than the excellent information she provides about the incidence of HSV 1 & 2 in the U.S., she also talks very openly about the emotional impact of being diagnosed with an STI, even one as ubiquitous and generally harmless to people with reasonably strong immune systems as HSV.

note: Mollena is all-around pretty damn awesome and a kick-ass presenter, even if she does intimidate the hell out me
