Who the hell writes the scripts for these things?
So I'm watching TV and a Valtrex commercial comes on. Depicting an attractive, fit, younger couple, and their talking casually to the camera man about how the guy has genital herpes, and they used to have sex between outbreaks. (She KNOWs this for a fact, and she is apparently completely unmoved by this fact, as though she is totally fine with the risk of just doing it between outbreaks with the infected guy).
The Valtrex statistic flashes on the screen indicating they are still at increased risk without Valtrex. So the interview continues, and they talk about how know that they are on Valtrex, they are STILL having sex, and she is still uninfected.
HELLOOOOO!?!!? How about this -- STOP HAVING SEX! You know the guy's infected, and you're just dating at this point, so instead of being so nonchalant about it, why not STOP the sex?
Also, how much did they have to PAY this guy to play the part of the herpes-infected dude on TV?
