Sex and the Cities: The Top US Cities with the Highest STD Rates

STD ratesSex. It’s something that almost makes up for the all the things we have to put up with during our hectic week schedule. Well, almost. But do you really know what is going on inside your partner’s pants (or dress)? We doubt it.

Recent statistics show that STDs cases are on the rise all over the US. Chlamydia, Hepatitis B and C, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HIV – 1 and 2, Herpes 2 – you name it, they have it. With so many STDs floating around America, there is no telling what you may encounter while walking about your city. The zombie epidemic might not happen, but the STD epidemic looks to be approaching real fast. So, we came up with a list of the 5 most STD infected cities in the US to give you some idea of what to look out for:

  1. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis has one of the highest STD rates in all of America. Recent statistics show that approximately 554 in 100,000 people have Gonorrhea and 1,283 in 100,000 people have syphilis. So, if you live in this city, remember a rubber might be your best friend.

  1. Austin, Texas

Austin registers one of the highest STD rates among all US cities.  Approximately 601 per 100,000 and 165 per 100,000 residents in Austin have Chlamydia and gonorrhea respectively. You might be a proud Texan, but having an STD is nothing to be proud of.

  1. San Francisco, California

San Francisco’s HIV rates have declined recently. But other STD rates have risen considerably. With a per capita rate of syphilis and gonorrhea at 18.1 and 203.1 respectively, we might say that the people of San Fran might be living it up too much for their own good.

  1. Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore is a great city to live in. It is also big in STDs with per capita rates for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea at 503.1 and 150 respectively. With these numbers, the city of neighborhoods might need an STD neighborhood watch to bring things back to normal.

  1. Chicago, Illinois

The ‘sweet home Chicago’ that mythical blues musician Robert Johnson sang in his legendary song has disturbing rates of gonorrhea and syphilis at 141.6 and 11 respectively. If you live in the city or the surrounding area, then we highly recommend taking medically-proven precaution on your next sexual escapade.

While some STDs are transitory, others like Herpes stay with you for life. But just because you have an STD does not mean that you are forever banned from experiencing human affection. Rather, it is nice to meet and connect with people who have the same medical condition as yours.

With such high numbers of STDs registering all over the country, it is no surprise that a very strong market is developing for people who have unfortunately contracted STDs. If you are one such person, then you don’t need to worry about the social aspect of your life. All you need to do is to find the right people to connect with and then your social and sex life can resume as normal.
