No, I always disagree on this premise: Tinder, Craigslist, any dating website, et al are just communication mediums. If communication was/is a barrier to finding partners, then I suggest, there are larger problems that needs to be found and addressed. These mediums have no impact on:

  • morality
  • health
  • education
  • responsibility

of the adults choosing to engage.

Exactly. We all know, by now, that it's the rock'n'roll music that's the problem.

That communication medium you talk about being in surplus of is not in surplus for discreet sex or sex with cocaine or sex for cocaine or needle drugs.

Tinder and CL do raise STD rates slightly according to a study authored by students at UniofMinnesota and UniofNewYork https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2035585

anything that facilitates hookups will increase STD rates, espcially if a good chunk of its users are whores and hard drug users too skettchy to meet people in public. The women i might fuck in my town i know who was with someone with herpes, or who likes crack cocaine or stuck needles in their arm. Tinder not so much, people arent always honest but sometimes Very Very horny.

There is because set "mediums" are not only mediums but also brands and influencers that influence people. If it's cool to go on dates from tinder people will want to do it as opposed to go on dates other way.

Wanna check out this cool new app, it's called Tinder bro, it's so cool you must get on it!

Tho not wearing protection and not having safe sex is beyond retarded, regardless of your age, gender, orientation, etc.

That's a weak premise. These mediums might be influencing a slight increase in promiscuity but they dont have any influence on the person you choose or the decision to have unprotected sex.

Tinder is no more to blame for a rise in stds than whiskey or bad techno music. Kids like to fuck and it's easier than ever to find someone else who wants to fuck. If it wasn't tinder it would be something else.

Oral syphillis is the most common STD in my community...rubbers ain't enough. Motherfuckers need to get tested and take a month or two to vet a sexual partner. Plenty of other kinky shit you can do in meantime to get off.

Wanking is the safest form of sex- no STDs, no pregnancy, no rape accusations, and you don't have to worry about finishing first.

it sounds to me that the uneducated kids having sex are to blame.

The generation raised on ABSTINENCE ONLY education. Loved that D.A.R.E. program shit too.

The same generation of millennials that were provided condoms in kindergarten? Do you realize how fucking retarded it looks to keep blaming some old 50s style fantasy conservative society for all of our self induced problems?

No, our society is one where we teach children who are by virtue of their immature brain chemistry physically incapable of thinking about the consequences of their actions how to fuck because "they're just going to do it anyway". Then we're left scratching our heads wondering why the kids we taught to fuck are all oversexed and idiots come out of the woodwork to exclaim, "We should have taught them to fuck more!

Tinder's a tool which has enabled Syphilis infected people, many I expect were willfully ignorant of their STD status to begin with, to find people to pass along their infection to, nothing more. To blame Tinder for a persons own irresponsible behavior is a poor rationalization, at best.

Tinder might be to blame for rise in syphilis among millennials | New York Post

'Sure, some sexually transmitted diseases can lead to infertility, but most effects of STDs can be cured with antibiotics. '

'In an article for Vanity Fair last year, author Nancy Jo Sales asked young people how Tinder is different from just going out to a bar. '

'Syphilis is hard to detect because its symptoms look like a lot of other ailments. '

'Some experts have pointed to the “Tinder effect,” the idea that online hookup sites are making casual anonymous sex easier and more common than it used to be. '

'In other words, it is hard to put the fear of God in young people with these kinds of problems. '

This has been an automated message.

I remember a time when you actually had to go out to meet people... See them in person, maybe buy them a drink, be able to see them without strange camera angles or flattering lighting, spend a little time deciding if you truly wanted to spend some time with them.

Tinder (and most of the others) are just a way for people to skip all of that and hook up with people who have decided "I want to fuck, so here's some pictures of me that make me look like I will fuck you better than other people will fuck you. Want to fuck me? Then let me see your pictures that make you look like you will fuck me better than someone else. Hey! We both want to fuck, and we both think the other's pictures are fuck worthy? Cool! Come out of your parents basement and I'll come out of my shitty apartment and we can go fuck away our sorrows and then retreat back to our dark depressing windowless world until the next time we want to fuck. Maybe we'll fuck each other, but we probably won't remember who on our list we fucked or when, so the odds are we probably won't fuck each other again, but we will most likely fuck lots of people."

So why exactly is it a surprise that STD's are on the rise?
