I know this is a touchy subject. Please don't feel obligated to answer if it makes you uncomfortable.

There are numerous infections that can be transmitted sexually, so I think this is a fair poll that could possibly correlate, considering multiple infections are often seen in ME/CFS.

(It will not show who voted, just the raw number of votes)

I came into contact with more people (not sexually) that had mutant flu like diseases on my life's journey.
After a while I came to loathe those who brought their diseases to work and passed them around :mad:
