Davis wants people to know that being diagnosed with an STD is not a death sentence, and people are fully capable of leading rich, diverse, fulfilling and successful lives. Jenelle Marie Davis: It started back in April 2012.We chatted with Jenelle about becoming an STD advocate, The STD Project and being the face of dating with STDs. I was 29 at the time and working full-time as an accountant. Since then, we had over 2 million people come to The STD Project website and we are planning to launch 11 additional sites to expand our reach.Other times, it's because being open and honest about sexual health is a good way to turn up the intimacy and heat.Dating with STDs wouldn't seem nearly as difficult if people made a habit of talking about sex before having it.
Whether it’s taking a sneaky peek at Twitter whilst you’re at work, or browsing through Facebook on your daily commute, it’s become an ingrained part of our cultural conscious.Finding clinical information online was easy, but Davis felt alone and frustrated when it came to finding personal stories on living with STDs.This lack of community led Davis to launch The STD Project, a website and progressive movement eradicating STD stigma by encouraging awareness, education, and acceptance through storytelling and resource recommendations.Dating can be an exciting time of self discovery, where one can learn about life, love, and partnership.However, few things in life bring out more anxiety, doubt, and challenges to one’s self esteem than dating.
