STDFriends Review

STD Friends is a Facebook-type website that caters to people living with STDs. This is a brilliant idea whose time has come. This site offers a non-judgmental space to make friends or even find romance. The stigma of having an STD can be overwhelming and STD Friends provides a much needed website to meet others in the facing similar challenges.

Basic Features

In addition to the normal social networking features, the website contains informational articles about STDs and living with STDs. Another nice touch not found on most sites is a special blog section allows members to share their stories and/or provide encouragement to others.

Searching for Friends

This is where the site really excels. The look and feel of the site is as good as any social networking site there is. You can specify what you're interested in, whether a one-night stand or up to and including marriage. You can refine who you're searching for by sex, age, race, STD type, body type or any combination of variables. There is a messaging feature that allows for private conversations as well as public posts. There is even an option that allows you search for friends anonymously. Still another feature allows you to block or report members who may be abusive or just make the member uncomfortable.

Protecting Your Privacy

The site has a tremendous reputation for protecting its member's privacy. Any information you provide is considered to be completely confidential. The site also makes a written promise to its members that information provided will never be sold or shared with anyone, ever. This promise of complete privacy allow members of STD Friends to provide as much or as little of their information and personal story as they are comfortable sharing with others. The site has no minimum or maximum requirements for providing information. As always, potential members are perfectly capable of determining their own level of comfort but knowing their information is protected provides an additional level of openness on the site.

Costs:

  • Free membership for standard members
  • Gold Membership
    • 1 Month - $19.95
    • 3 Month - $34.95
    • 12 Month - $79.95

Verdict:

There are no negative aspects of this website worth mention. If you have, or know someone who has, an STD, the site is a must see. The functionality and feel of the site are on par with other, major social networking sites. The comfort of socializing with others who are familiar with your situation and the privacy promised by the site operators are a bargain at any price.
