Warning: No Guarantee "Real World" is STD-Free

An assortment of condoms is lined up on a table.

You know that D.C. "Real World" cast member you've been macking with (or more)? He/she might have an STD.

Or a mental disorder.

But maybe you knew about that possibility, after signing the waiver from MTV contract company, RW Productions.

I UNDERSTAND THAT PRODUCER DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE CAST MEMBERS IN THE PROGRAM OR OF ANY OTHER PERSON WHOM I MAY ENCOUNTER IN CONNECTION WITH MY PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE MENTAL OR PHYSICAL HEALTH OF ANY SUCH PERSON.

It's all in clause No. 5:

IF I CHOOSE TO ENGAGE IN CONSENSUAL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR OR INTIMATE CONTACT WITH ANY SUCH PERSON I DO SO VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY AND I ASSUME THE RISK THAT BY ENGAGING IN SUCH ACTIVITY I MAY CONTRACT CERTAIN SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES. PRODUCER MAKES NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION THAT ANY SUCH PERSON IS STD FREE.

And in case you weren't clear on all that:

I AM COGNIZANT OF THE RISKS AND I SHALL BEHAVE IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH GOOD JUDGMENT AND CAUTION AS I WOULD IN MY DAILY LIFE. I EXPLICITLY INCLUDE ANY INJURIES OR HARM THAT I MAY SUFFER AS A RESULT OF ENGAGING IN SUCH CONDUCT WITHIN THE MATTERS FOR WHICH I AM RELEASING YOU FROM ANY CLAIMS OR LIABILITIES.

A contestant at the "Put Your Best Foot Forward" date auction Wednesday night signed the waiver, then promptly leaked it to The Washington Examiner when the fifth clause caught her off guard.

(Pssst, MTV. D.C. is FULL of lawyers. They read EVERYthing, especially contracts. Particularly when you PUT IT IN ALL CAPS.)

"Real World" rocker, actor and artist Josh Colon almost stole the show at the auction with a striptease that won him $175 toward the charity, which gives disadvantaged people tools for employment. But he was beat out by a contestant who could both moonwalk and handstand.

Colon then took his bidder out to Tattoo Bar, where he and fellow cast member Ty Ruff drank and "rubbed up against the bidder and her friends," the Examiner reported.

Eeewwww....

So be careful out there, dear locals. And remember: no glove, no love.
