To this, m’dear: here are recent Colorado stats:

The rate of chlamydia during 2017–481.3 cases per 100,000 people — represents a 23.0 percent increase since 2013. The syphilis rate was more than two times higher: 14.6 cases per 100,000 people, a 61.5 percent leap over the same span. And the 151.3 cases of gonorrhea per 100,000 people is up 182.3 percent in five years. For my part, as a mature woman, I have every single reason in the world NOT to step out. Apparently I can’t say the same for a great many others. Keep swinging it around unprotected boys, and it will eventually just fall off.

This from a recent article. Horror? You’re goddamned right. PUT. A. SOCK.ON.IT.
