“You should get tested.”

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are definitely the LAST things you want to be thinking about when getting hot and heavy, whether it comes up pre-or post-play. But with 110 million Americans infected at any given time, chances are you’ve felt that pang, knowing something isn’t quite right down there.

According to the American Social Health Organization, one out of four teens in the U.S becomes infected with an STD each year. By the age of 25, half of all sexually active young adults may contract an STD. Continue Reading
