It's Called The Ostrich Effect — And It's Real
It's understandable why people behave this way, but — it's dangerous!
It strikes me as more than a little wiggy that in this study people chose to avoid information that could be relevant to the health of sexual partners. It seems like these test results would put them face-to-face with an ethical decision every time they had sex with a new partner, but they didn't want to deal with that "stress." THAT's worrisome. They don’t talkabout it in this interview, but it’s my takeaway. Makesyou think twice, doesn’t it?
