A public health announcement for young Londoners

Sarah Teather, a Londoner, and believed to still be date-less, has asked the following: "How many people were diagnosed with a sexually-transmitted infection in each London health trust area in each of the last five years".

The figures she got in return were fairly limited, bar for Chlamydia which has figures at primary care trust level for 15/24 year olds. I have assumed that PCT areas are much the same as council areas, so on that basis, steer clear of suitors from Lewisham, Southwark, Lambeth and Greenwich. Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham would appear to the safest, and Ms Teather's home turf of Brent makes a middling showing. It could be that folk from boroughs on the right side of the Thames are more likely to take tests whereas as those out west are not. Croydon is in the top quarter, but it is not my problem as I do not fraternise with those young enough to be my offspring.

Anyway, the figures:



Elsewhere, a French survey has conclusive proof that sex makes liars of more people than politics and angling put together. Especially page 19. As I try to keep this place PG, I will merely note that for one particular practice (which sounds a bit like an Irish airline) the percentage of men who say that they have performed it is little short of double the percentage of women who say that they have received it.

Ryanair?

I think that any sexual or parasexual activity named for Ryanair would have to be on the outer fringes of BDSM at the very least, and more likely would involve what are known as Belgian vices.
