S2 Ep 9: An STI Primer for Straight Spouses

Guest: Dr. David Malebranche

On today’s episode, we get schooled in all things related to sexually transmitted infections with Dr. David Malebranche, an expert in HIV and STI prevention and treatment, and associate professor of medicine at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta. Many straight spouses (and adults in general) find themselves dating again at mid-life, post-divorce. Navigating the new landscape of sexual health, risk and safety has changed dramatically in the decades since many of us had sex education, if we even got it. Back then, condom use was usually demonstrated by a gym teacher using a tube sock and a banana! It’s a different world today, and Dr. Malebranche walks us through the need-to-know basics of prevention, testing and treatment for the biggies: HIV/AIDS, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HPV, and HSV (Herpes). Tune in, learn, and stay safe our there!
