Eeeew! Old heads are poppin’ Viagra, having unprotected sex and contracting STD’s at an alarming rate. Pop it to see why the lil blue pill got Grandpa burnin’.

Shiver. Gag. Lurch. A new report says that cases of STD’s are on the rise. Apparently, these old farts are poppin’ Viagra and going raw dog because they aren’t concerned about pregnancy.

A recent report in the Annals of Internal Medicine, says the rate of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in older men taking erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra is twice as high as in their non-medicated peers.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were more than six new cases of STDs per 10,000 men over 40 in 2008, up almost 50 percent since 1996.

While the reasons for this development aren’t well understood, he said more divorces and better health might have conspired to boost sexual prowess and activity among graying heads.

The problem, however, is that older adults appear to ignore safe sex practices. For instance, the researchers note, 50-year-olds are six times less likely to use a condom than men in their 20s.

“We are typically unaccustomed to practice safe sex over the age of 50, because the risk of pregnancy is eliminated,” Dr. Anupam B. Jena of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston told Reuters Health.

To test whether the introduction of Viagra in 1998 might explain some of the STD surge, Jena and colleagues examined insurance records for more than 1.4 million U.S. men over 40. The average age in the study was about 60 years.

The most commonly found STD was HIV, followed by chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhea.

Studies also discovered that older women seem to have a greater risk of contracting HIV if they have unprotected sex because the vaginal mucous membrane thins with age and can get tiny tears without proper lubrication.

People over the age of 50 make up about 11 percent of new diagnoses in the U.S. and the life expectancy for those infected with HIV after 65 is only four years.

All you gold diggers and old-head hunters, take note. Old men got the heebie jeebies and cougars have the mange. Wrap that sh*t up, B!
