One Night with Venus, Pt. 1

One Night with Venus, Part 1

Happy VD! It’s Valentine’s Day, so you may think we’re debuting our Horrific History Podcast on the horrible gifts people have given for the occasion (and, you may be right, from a certain point of view). No, we won’t be talking about candy and wine; we’re focusing on venereal diseases! Our co-hosts, Eric Slyter and Curtis Bender, will specifically be discussing period accounts in western culture of the symptoms and gruesome historical treatments of gonorrhea and syphilis, in stomach-churning detail. Rashes, prostitution, burning sensations and blindness… you’ll find it all here. Listen to Part 1 of our 2-part debut episode through your favorite podcast service or through our website!

 

Just can’t get enough? In two weeks the second part of this episode will be released (Find it here)!

As always, if you do decide to spend a night with Venus (or anyone else for that matter), safe(r) sex practices greatly reduce the likelihood of contracting STDs or STIs.
