They must have outsourced the writing to offshore..

Herpes Complex 2 - WTF is that?
Herpes Suck - Clue here, Herpes is not plural for herpe
Bad Flare Day - Your roadside incendiary warning device didn't work? Your Temper flared?

At least it's increasing awareness... I guess..

   That just pisses me off like you wouldn't believe!!!!

The more and more I think about how we were chatting about humour maybe helping destigmatise this, the more I think it might actually not be a bad idea.

Humour is powerful! It got us into this mess, maybe it can get us out.

I keep thinking about how successful plays such as Vagina Monologues and Puppetry of the penis were.

Alix (sex educator) told me she got into sex ed through drama at university, and I think its not a bad idea. Its animated so people (and even kids)relate to it and it makes an impression.

How about "Herpes - the musical"! Kidding really - but it would make a great sequel to "Hair"!

Well, the Bad Flare Day is for lupus, but I sure could use that on some bad jeans days or bad hair days.

But come on. I wonder if there is a Herpes Complex 1. Is that milder than herpes complex 2?

And I wonder if W is worse than just one herpe, or if it takes more than one herpe to make W worse?

   I got one of these t-shirts! They are really nice!! I am thinking of having "debunking the myths" printed on the back, so that when I'm standing in the grocery store line up people can read it!

(Also it saves them staring at my boobs to read the fine print!)

Of course, I'm all talk! Not sure I would actually have the guts to do the grocery store thing! LOL

Come to think of it, my mother says the grocery store is a good place to meet men! It hasn't worked so far. But maybe if I wear the t-shirt I'll have better luck!! mmmmmmm

I thought that's why we wear sparky's tee's - so folks stare at our boobs more? he he he

Really I've worn my sparky tee many places now. You have to get really close to see what is written under the slashes - it's pretty discrete. Most folks aren't bold enough to stare THAT much at my boobies...he he he

The first step in stopping the perceived stigma about genital herpes - is to stop believing in it yourself

More people read the tshirt if you get two of sparky's buttons and pin one on each boob. tee hee hee

When we all wore the tshirt at the STD conference no one in the elevator had any problem staring at my boobs to read my shirt. Naturally, someone said "what does your shirt say?" and the entire elevator full of at least 10 people turned to read me. At least they were STD people so I wasn't totally horrified.

If you go to Sparky's site, you can read a couple of true stories about wearing the tee shirts. One of them is mine.

oh wow, i stumbled upon these shameless plugs today. cool! i should venture into this folder more often.

the design on the women's tees is much smaller (because those american apparel girly tees are super tiny!). i do feel like i'm busting out of mine whenever i wear it, but then again, maybe that's good for awareness?

looking forward to it being warm enough to wear short sleeves again soon!

Yes, they are really nice. The women's tees are a very soft, comfortable material and they fit nicely. Also, the herpes print is small enough that people really have to get in close to read the shirt.

Believe it or not, there is actually an awesome one man show/play called Herpes Tonight! www.herpestonight.com. It's running in Hollywood right now until July 12th. I saw it and it was great.
