Man has 'world's worst' super-gonorrhoea
 
A man in the UK has caught the world's "worst-ever" case of super-gonorrhoea.

He had a regular partner in the UK, but picked up the superbug after a sexual encounter with a woman in south-east Asia.

Public Health England says it is the first time the infection cannot be cured with first choice antibiotics.

So we've got a goner here? Too Easy, sorry, doesn't deserve a clap.

Faster than a premature ejaculation.
More powerful than a south east asian condom.
Able to leap tall antibiotics in a single bound.

Look! Up in the medical dictionary.
It's a town!
It's an Italian dish!

It's Superbug! Yes, it's Super-gonorrhoea!

Strange visitor from another country who came to the UK with powers and abilities to make peeing comfortably far beyond that of mortal men.

Yeah, that might beat Florida Man for the title of worst superhero.

The complications of the clap are pretty well documented for women, but I've never heard of any for men, other than some discomfort/blockage.
I can look it up when I get home; I'm sure as hell not going to Google that at work! :eek:

Yeah, back when I was in junior high school, they talked a lot about how you could catch gonorrhea, but didn't really say much about what it did to you. Not like syphilis, which of course can actually kill you.

(This tells you how long ago I went to school -- it was before AIDS was a concern, and I don't remember that we even talked about herpes. Just "VD.")

I know I'm really just speculating here, and I'm sure they're being vague about the details of the encounter to protect the man's privacy, but did anyone else read that part and think "sex tourism"? If the woman he got the infection from was in fact a prostitute there could be a lot more men that she spread it to.

Depending on what kind of clap you're talking about, and how far it advances, there are some pretty ugly symptoms that affect both sexes. Dementia, for one.

The More You Know

Quote:

Some men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all. However, men who do have symptoms, may have:

A burning sensation when urinating;
A white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis;
Painful or swollen testicles (although this is less common).
Quote:

In men, gonorrhea can cause a painful condition in the tubes attached to the testicles. In rare cases, this may cause a man to be sterile, or prevent him from being able to father a child.
There's a great episode of the podcast Sawbones all about the clap. A lot of squirm-inducing talk about slapping or injecting things into the penis.
