Fox News put together a little guide to what states have the most common occurrences of STDs, according to Center for Disease Control and Prevention statistics. Based on the prevalence of STD reports in each state, they put together a “best” and “worst” ranking, meaning that the state with the lowest score is the “best state” for STDs, and the state with the highest is the “worst state” for STDs. Obviously it’s a little unfair to apply such a qualifier when you consider the population size of a state like, say, Utah or Wyoming vs New York and Texas, both of which has massive populations.
Conclusions: Way go West Virginia for keeping it clean. Ask for a full doctors report if you sleep with someone from Louisiana.
