Syphilis is making a comeback. In the last 4 years cases have increased by 81%. On Ep 157 of American Sex Podcast Danarama joins us to talk about syphilis past and present. Learn about the stages of this disease, how it’s treated, and how to protect yourself. Plus its long and tragic history, from its start coinciding with the genocide against the Indigenous Peoples in the Americas right up through today. Dan tells us about notable figures throughout history stricken with the disease and how it affected their decision-making and legacy, the beauty and fashion trends that spawned from treatments (some we still wear today), the horrific Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment supported by the CDC until 1972, and more.
