This entry and its accompanying video are both dedicated to those who inhabit the city of New York.
A few weeks ago I read an AP article that said one-fourth of the city’s residents have herpes.
According to that article, a survey stated that about 26% of all New York adult residents have genital herpes. It seems the herpes rate is higher among women, black people and gay men. Sounds like someone’s trying to kill off my core readership. I’m glad I’ve been reaching out to Romania, the Ukraine, Japan, the U.K. and Australia.
Anyhow, today I came across another article that says more and more New Yorkers are contracting sexually transmitted diseases because fewer people are using condoms.
The department surveyed 10,000 adults in the five boroughs, and found that many are putting themselves at risk by having unsafe sex.
Forty percent of all New Yorkers engaged in sex without a condom with multiple partners.
In a year that has seen sex scandals involving top local politicians, the survey also addresses the issue of cheating. Five percent of New Yorkers admitted to having sex outside their relationship.
Men are three times more likely than women to report multiple partners.
That explains why New York is Bumpy Town. Thanks to that article now whenever, “Where Brooklyn at?” I’m going to assume the answer is the free clinic.
