Chaser’s World Weird Web: There is Such a Thing as Sexually Transmitted Food Poisoning
New sexually transmitted diseases have not been as frequent in the past few years, so here is one for you.
According to io9.com, there is a type of food poisoning called ciguatera, that’s caused by eating certain predator fish including barracuda, snapper, eel, and grouper. If they become contaminated with toxins, you can get ciguatera from eating them.
But that’s not the only way to get it, it can also be transmitted sexually.
The symptoms include nausea, aches, vertigo, hallucinations, and losing control of muscle movements. It also causes pain during sex.
That means if you can get through the pain, you can transmit it to the person you are having sex with.
The only treatment for ciguatera is to wait it out till it works itself out of your body.
