My friend Matt told me this afternoon that he had unprotected penis/vagina intercorse this weekend with his girlfriend, Miranda. I gave him a bunch of links to this website and all of your great information (the Risk Assesment chart) but he said that since he did not ejaculate there was no reason to worry. Au contrair! Now he won't even listen to me. I offered to drive him and Miranda down to our local Planned Parenthood, but he dosen't believe me that Miranda has a moderate to high chance of pregnancy and they both have an STD risk. What can I do to make them both wake the heck up!?!
I'm so worried for both of them...

Since this is a rather time-sensitive issue, you need to act fast. First of all, if you can't convince Matt that he's wrong, try talking to Miranda. Have you gotten him to actually read the website? Perhaps you could make him sit in a chair and read some ST articles. Forcibly make him sit in the chair and read aloud to him. Show him the countless sites that say "Yes, pre-ejaculate contains sperm". Grab a book from the library that confirms that STDs can be transmitted without ejaculation. In any case, make it impossible for him to deny the fact that he's wrong.
If you can't do it, your first priority is to get Miranda to PP.
