Question What's with the STD reputation in The Villages?

We told several friends about the villages and we were buying a home and two said you heard they have the highest std numbers of any retirement community.

Is this fact or fiction.

We're very concerned what are the facts about this?

If you aren't sleeping around, it doesn't matter.

Well, if you are exposed you could catch a STD. So you know what to do about that!!

And...I am guessing that it is yet another rumor.

Part of this Urban Legend came from the book Leisureville. And the culprit is MR. MIDNIGHT!

Actually it is a rumor started by the..........

Check one;
WCTU. FBI. YMCA. VOA. LAPD. MSNBC. Fox. TLC. CBS. TTN. BBC.
Please feel free to add your own.

Personally I think rumors like that are much better than those that say we are all death adjacent.

Here is the FACT on the story.... some locals do not like the villages because they do not like change.They want to keep things like it was yrs ago...so a Doc told a story about a high count on it...truth is there is STD all over the USA...I am a single person who lives her for the past 6 yrs and has not been around nor heard of a problem like the old story has been pasted around. If you sleep around I am sure you may catch something just like if you were anywhere else... The Villages is a very nice place to live. No need to worry!

If it were true then perhaps it would be due to the fact that many, (excuse the word) seniors, only used condoms back when it meant stopping pregnancy. Since that isn't much of a concern with this population then perhaps they don't use any protection? Just a thought.

If it is true, then perhaps it is because the people in TV recognize a medical problem and seek treatment for it rather than hope it goes away!

Another rumor from that nut that wrote Leisureville.

When we first visited here in 2008, we took the trolley tour. Someone on the bus asked the guide about a recent newspaper article that apparently mentioned the high incidence of STD's in the Villages. Despite the fact that I thought the question to be rude and uncalled for, the guide never missed a beat. She said "Well, we ARE an active adult community!" If you live in the Villages, you can probably avoid STD's, but you won't be able to avoid the humor !

It is simply not true. Below is a link that references board of health statistics for the area.
