The internet is a wonderful tool for cultivating
romance awkward booty calls. But while it’s great to get a peek at what goods your online date’s got before you do the deed, it’s even more important to know what special, uh, viral surprises they’ve got for you. That’s where Qpid.me comes in; it’s a new, free online service that’ll store and share your STI test results, sparing you from having to tell another one of your lovers about that time you had chlamydia. Isn’t the modern world amazing?
Sporting the tag line, “Spread the love, nothing else,” Qpid.me says their aim is to help make STD test results more transparent, both for the testee and his or her sexual partners. You can request to have your medical records and test results sent directly to Qpid.me, where they’ll ostensibly hold them for you online and not email them out to all your Gmail contacts. Plus, you can “privately” share your results with whomever you choose, so instead of having to use speaking words to let someone know you’ve got gonorrhea, you can send them a nice medical text message instead. There’s a handy FAQ section addressing any possible questions and concerns that could come up. Our favorite question, if you’re wondering, is, “If my partner and I both use Qpid.me, could we still get pregnant?”
It is important to note that STDs should not be taken lightly. It’s important to maintain an open dialogue with your sexual partner, which, after a few shots at Union Pool, can be difficult to do. That being said, have we really reached a point where we can no longer communicate using our voices, and must instead rely on the internet to practice safe sex? O millennials, have we lost our way?
