(Gonorrhea can infect the throat and herpes the lips (cold sores), but most other STIs are rarely transmissible orally.) So older daters generally assume they don’t need condoms. Since 2005, risk of syphilis among older adults has jumped 67 percent, chlamydia 40 percent, which is why health officials recommend condoms every time for everyone who dates until both lovers test STI-free and pledge monogamy.
Only one in five said they used them every time, 32 percent of the women, 12 percent of the men. Age is, indeed, a key risk factor for syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, genital warts, and HIV, and STIs are by far most prevalent among those under 30.
Risk after 50 is much lower—compared with twenty-somethings, around 90 percent lower.
