Jennifer Lawrence: ‘I have made it this far without an STI. D–k is dangerous’

90th Academy Awards (Oscars)

Even Jennifer Lawrence’s biggest defenders will probably admit that there’s something very immature about her, like she’s stuck in a sort of awkward-teenage physicality and speech pattern. She’s like a puppy – a big, klutzy, half-drunk puppy who loves to talk about chugging wine and trashy reality television and farting. So is it super-shocking to learn that all of her sh-t talking is just that? That she’s not really slaying dudes right and left and five times on the weekend? No, it’s not shocking. Here’s this week’s J.Law PSA: D-ck is dangerous.

With her stunning looks and cheeky personality, Jennifer Lawrence has no problem getting a bloke. But the actress has revealed she is not the confident party girl she’s made out to be – and says she hasn’t had sex for “a very long time” because she’s terrified of catching diseases. She even hates hugs for fear of picking up bugs.

The Oscar-winner, who has dated Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and actor Nicholas Hoult, explained: “I am all bark and no bite. I always talk like I want d***, but the truth is when I look back at my sexual past it was always with boyfriends. I talk like I like it, but I don’t really do it. I am mostly also a germaphobe. I have made it this far without an STI. D*** is dangerous.”

J-Law’s obsession with catching illnesses means she even hates shaking hands, which she labels rude, and insists all of her boyfriends are thoroughly checked over by a doctor before getting near her bedroom. She adds: “If I was at the point where I could get an STI, doctors have already been involved. That is how much of a germaphobe I am. I am not in a relationship. I am making it clear that I have not had sex in a very long time. I would like to have a relationship, you know. It is hard out there.”

You know what? I’m not going to fault her for any of this? This is perhaps the best message she’s ever sent to the younger girls who admire her. This is like a fart-scented Scared Straight message for teenage girls: D-ck is dangerous. Get a complete medical background on the d-ck before d-ck gets near you. D-ck is germy. One can be sex-positive AND germophobic at the same time – she’s not judging women who DGAF about danger d-ck. She’s not calling them sluts or anything. She’s just talking about her own thoughts and how she’s an undercover all-talk-no-action kind of broad. Cheers to that.

    Yeah, actually I love this.

    • Krill says:

      Same. If you are going to have unprotected sex get tested with your partner and make sure you are exclusive sexually. I dont care if he “looks like such a nice clean boy”. Test. Nothing more bizarre than a girl panicking about being pregnant from a random but never considering the STI part.

      • Ggg says:

        The delivery is crass, but I like the message. So many young women are scared of asking their bf for an STD test and pit their health at risk to avoid hirting his feelings. Or they actually think that he’s clean because “they know him” (???)

        If I hear/read “We’ve been exclusive for 5 months now so we stopped using condoms” without any mention of getting tested one more time, I’m gonna scream. Lady, if being in a relationship with you cures people of their previously-acquired STDs, the medical community would love to hear from you.

      • Mimz says:

        One of the strangest things to me is that seemingly westernized custom to talk to children about birth control i.e. pills, putting it above the use of condoms.
        When i lived in south africa i was shocked to learn my friends got their period, were sent to the doctor to be put on the pill so they wouldnt get pregnant. And they basically had unprotected sex but “were safe because the pill” .
        My jaw dropped. In my country we don’t have the culture of the sex talk – which is a shame – BUT we learn to wear a condom at all costs!! Condom condom condom. AND then add pills or whatever else. But before that we do all the testing. So… yeah lots of people in my country ignore that but we still know what to do, u know?
        I completely relate to JLaw (for once) because i am obsessed with safe sex. I spent most of my adult life using condoms except from one unfortunate occasion, and even after that i was so obssessed that i did like two or three HIV tests afterwards.
        I don’t play games. Am basically a walking abstinence billboard. And JLaw was absolutely my spirit animal in this instance ONLY.
        It was like hearing myself talking (not as crass, but still).

  2. Sassyfrass says:

    After reading that wonderful and classy Viola Davis post, and then reading this one, Jlaw comes across as vulgar and terribly overrated imo. Please just shut up and go away already, your time has passed.

  3. Lightpurple says:

    Delivered in her way, whether one loves or hates her, but it is an important message. Be safe.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Yes. I like the naturalness of the delivery. She didn’t change her style to impart this important message, and that gives it a much better chance of actually being listened to by young girls who admire her and are just beginning to be sexually active.

  4. Lucy says:

    Sure. Totally on board with this. Whatever and whoever you do, be safe, peeps.

    • Sabrine says:

      I think this is a good thing to say, especially since some of the diseases out there are not curable. No, she’s not classy but she says it in a way that might resonate with young girls whose dates are pushing them to have unprotected sex.

      • Ksenia says:

        I agree. It’s the message, and not the way (or by who) it was delivered, that counts in this case. If young girls DO look up to her (not sure why the hell they would, except that she’s a “star”) what she says could have a positive impact on them. (Though I don’t buy her “germaphobe” crap for an instant. Unless she’s been lying about ALL her *other*, far from hygienic habits…) Wow, vulgarly as she put it, she might even serve some sort of useful purpose, with this, though. MIGHT.

  5. Nicole says:

    I mean this isn’t bad but I’m not applauding that she can manage to say one thing that isn’t completely stupid.
    Fact is she’s exhausting, @$$holes to complete strangers, a terrible feminist, etc.
    Also fact is that the people who excuse every bad thing she does would NEVER make these excuses for a black women. In fact they would probably dog them.

  6. DiligentDiva says:

    It’s a good message, but somehow I don’t believe the woman who bragged about scratching her ass sacred Hawaiian stones is a germophobic. Call me crazy but all the gross things she’s admitted to over the years makes the idea of her being a germophobic laughable.

  7. Really says:

    I actually like what she’s saying for once.

  8. Paula says:

    Uh, I doubt a germaphobe would pee on a sink?

  9. heh says:

    i legit LOL’d at this headline cause its factual.

  10. V4Real says:

    First off, she’s not that stunning. She’s attractive and that’s it. Secondly, she really needs to shut up for awhile. She is becoming so tiresome and needs to chill for a minute.

    I was watching web interviews where they were asking Koreans what they thought of certain celebrities. When a pic of JLaw came up some said they were not attractive to her, thought she was average looking and didn’t look healthy. I was like wow. It just goes to show that there are other cultures who don’t find those Hollywood standards appealing.

    • Krill says:

      To each their own I guess. She is not the societal standard in my community but I find her face stunning and her body killer. Constance Wu is probably the furthest thing from beauty standards in my community and yet I find her crazy gorgeous too. It happens.

  11. Slowsnow says:

    Wait what? “D&ck is dangerous” is a good message? Being germaphobe is a good message for young people? It’s like saying you don’t like murder because you dislike blood. Being anythingphobe is a terrible condition, it’s an exaggeration of a normal mindset which is making sure that the people you have sex with are clean and make sure you protect yourself as much as you can.

    She sounds completely whacko and hysterical. Unless this is a stint to sound funny in the sense of “look at me, a bombshell and yet I haven’t had sex in years can you believe it”. Either way it’s really unpalatable and sad.

  12. Who ARE These People? says:

    She’s no more a germaphobe than Donald Trump, but it’s a decent if sloppily delivered message to be careful out there.

  13. Rva says:

    Love it! I’m glad she’s said it and I don’t care about the delivery because the message is loud and clear. Bravo

  14. Cate says:

    The word stunning is so overused these days. Anyway, good message. Annoying messenger.

  15. Shannon says:

    I love this, and I don’t blame her. I never thought I’d call her wise, but here she totally is. She honestly reminds me of the way I talk with my good girlfriends after a few glasses of wine, like – she honestly seems to think the whole world is a group of girlfriends on wine night. Which I realize can be grating but I also find it kind of endearing (sorry not sorry LOL) If I had a daughter, that’s probably almost verbatim the sex talk I’d give LOL

  16. Tobbs says:

    Actually this kinda bugs me. While I think it’s important to promote safe sex it always gets me down when words like clean is used since it implies that the one who gets the disease is somehow dirty. STD is just like normal diseases and when you get one you’re mostly just unlucky. When you catch a cold virus few people would call you dirty or irresponsible. You can have unprotected sex with loads of people and not catch anything or you can have sex once and be unlucky. So many diseases have atypical symptoms so that people don’t know that they have it and thus infect others. I have met so many girls who have had their confidence and self image shattered because they have gotten a chlamydia infection which is mostly harmless and can be cured with a simple antibiotic treatment.

    So many young girls will read her interview and feel so much worse about themselves if they have contracted an STD. We should try to avoid getting diseases and be responsible about it, especially when resistance to antibiotics are on the rise. But people who get diseases are unlucky – not gross or unclean.

    • Slowsnow says:

      Completely agree. STD’s are stuff you catch- you can even carry without knowing. I have UTI’s that can be triggered by sex. It’s not that I’m dirty (at most dehydrated). Of course the one time I told a co-worker I got a really obnoxious comment. I’ve noticed that a lot of people enjoy suggesting that others are not clean (a big favorite: KStew, who probably get more groomed in a year than we’ll get in a lifetime).

    • pan says:

      i totally agree… although i don’t think this is what she means(?), in her direct, hyperbolic way, she is delivering a good message but you have a great point: shit happens; clean it up, don’t spread it. get tested and know your (and you partner’s) status. i’m with her in that, condoms make my yohoo rage and therefore… (yikes, i behave like a germaphobe and) folks be getting tested left and right.

    • DesertReal says:

      …this is such an odd comment.
      Yeah, if you get an STD you are “unlucky”.
      But it’s not as if it’s random.
      It’s not a sore throat from sleeping with your mouth open lol
      It’s having a broken condom inside you (or none at all) or unprotected oral sex from someone with…an issue.
      “Unlucky” oh my goodness lol
      It’s not exactly the same as rubbing your eye in public.

      • Adubs says:

        You can still get some STIs if you use a condom. You can even get both kinds of herpes from kissing someone. Nearly 70% of the world has some form of herpes, whether they know it or not, so while it’s not quite the common cold, it is absolutely a “normal” disease and about as random as shaking hands with the “wrong person” who has a different kind of infection. Since sex and kissing are pretty common activities, it really is just a matter of odds. Maybe if we stop blaming & shaming “dirty” people for these diseases, more people will actually get tested & protected and then eventually it won’t be as common.

  17. JennyJazzhands says:

    Is she incapable of giving one normal, professional interview?

  18. Sara says:

    Condoms are a wonderful thing.

  19. Katherine says:

    This is a great message, especially for the younger ones. Sex protect and a STD are essential to make everything safer. This is an issue that should be discussed and highlighted more often.

  20. Aren says:

    I would do the same, if I ever decided to have sex that is :)
    I don’t think it’s a bad message, it’s good to spread that there can be many ways to approach sex.

  21. RspbryChelly says:

    One should always be protected when engaging in casual sex, and even in LTR it’s still scary and much as you think “birth control is enough” you don’t ever really know what your partner is up to on the side. Unfortunately, aside from completely abstaining condoms are your best bet against STDs although they can break or slip. Idk. More power to what shes trying to convey I guess, but at this point I think I’m just all “J-Law’ed” out. I’m seeing her or reading about her everywhere & it’s like she’s still talking?

  22. Frosty says:

    She yabbers so much and so often that I kind of just tune her out now.

  23. stinky says:

    Jennifer and i are sex-twins, apparently.
    It’s lonely out here!
    Who knew?

  24. Her Higness says:

    it is a great message.

  25. Nic2k says:

    Oh my god, I can’t believe how many people here are willing to twist her words to fit their agenda. Do you really think she was trying to spread the message of safe sex? If a man said the same things (i.e. vaginas are dangerous) would you still think it was about safe sex?

    • j says:

      idk how anyone can take a “safe sex” message from what she said. all i heard was “i lie about how much i like sex to look cool” and “i only have sex with boyfriends” where the subtext is clearly about sleeping around.

    • Anon33 says:

      Nic2k, Please take your MRA bullshit elsewhere. You’re not welcome here and you seem a little stupid honestly. It was clearly a joke.

      I couldn’t care less about her, but give it a rest.

      • Nic2k says:

        @Anon33 Are you saying that I don’t have a point? Clearly. I’m not the only one that didn’t find any message at all from the inane ramblings of Jennifer Lawrence. I get that it was joke, I DONT get where people are finding the message of safe sexual practices.
        But hey, if you’re willing to insult someone for not agreeing with you then I’m sure you’ll find what you want to find, no matter how much of a reach. Have a lovely day!

      • JosieH says:

        “You’re not welcome here and you seem a little stupid honestly.”

        You seem nice.

    • lunchcoma says:

      Her point was that she insisted that her partners get tested, which is a safe sexual practice. This is something that women are sometimes hesitant to ask men about, and it’s good to talk about it openly. If men also want to talk about asking their partners to get tested, that’s a good thing too.

      • Nic2k says:

        but only to add to her brand new “germophobe” persona. She’s not advocating safe sex practices, she’s using it as a quirk.

      • otaku fairy says:

        @lunchcoma: That’s how I read it too. Plus part of it seemed like she was trying to let people know that she’s not seeing anybody right now since she and her co-star are being linked. But she’s ‘bitch eating crackers’ for many right now, plus this is a time where every conversation about a woman seems to be getting interrupted by feverish responses from the ‘What about the Menz!” crowd, so…

  26. me says:

    We need to stop using the term “safe sex” because it’s not a real thing. The only way to be safe is not to engage in sex. You can have “safer sex” by using protection of course…but it’s not 100% safe and we need to teach young people that yes you can still catch STD/STI’s even if you use a condom and yes you can get pregnant even if you use a condom.

  27. lunchcoma says:

    This would not be how I’d phrase some of those sentiments, but hey, people who phrase things that way need sex ed too. It’s probably a good thing for someone with a reputation for being careless and goofy and one of the guys talks about this sort of thing. If J-Law can insist on this stuff, you can too.

  28. Claire says:

    Yep, I agree. I will never forget the first time I had unprotected sex. I was 19 dating a 33 year old (I know) and I vividly remember the first time when he was hovering over me and I asked if he had a condom. He told me he didn’t wear them because he was “too big.” Stupid me was like “okay” and let him do his thing. Fortunately, he didn’t have anything, but I’m still so mad at myself about it.

  29. prissa says:

    I heard this live when she said it. She was a guest on the Howard Stern show. Funny it wasn’t credited to him.

  30. Candies says:

    It is not about dirtying people who have stds no It’s about advocating carefulness no? I think it’s important these things being talked about regardless of how she …
    I think some people has personal problem with her and are negative despite the importance of the matter.

  31. Clairej says:

    She has such a great figure.

  32. Lillian says:

    Jennifer your so busy being a kardashian wannabe ass licker I’m not to sure you don’t have std !

  33. Nibbi says:

    i m starting to find her really crass and obnoxious and she was kinda over to me w the whole Harvey Weinstein thing and all the yammering … she used to seem likeable and funny and “real”, now i kinda wish she’d go away and shut up and quit doing vulgarity-contest somersaults for my attention.

  34. bikki says:

    tbh when she said she wasn’t a “party girl” this struck me as a PR attempt to foil past public opinion (due to her drunkenness etc). look at how many comments on this article are positive compared to past JL articles. I guess it worked, good for you Jennifer.

    I don’t think many young people look up to her as a role model. let’s be real. Katniss yes perhaps, but not necessarily the actress that played her.
    but anyways, yea her message doesn’t hurt. it’s just I don’t buy everything she’s telling me about her personal life. but then again, I don’t give many f&**s about her personal life either because it doesn’t concern me.

    one positive thing I’ll say is that this gold dress is beautiful!
