Baltimore has the highest rate of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the US, according to government statistics.

Data has revealed the Maryland city has 2,004 STI cases per 100,000 people, with chlamydia the most common infection.

In second place with a rate of 1,872 cases per 100,000 was Jackson, Mississippi, followed by Philadelphia, San Francisco and Montgomery, Alabama.

The data reflects statistics for 2018, when cases of syphilis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia hit an all-time high in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

I believe Baltimore is consistently the STD capital of the US. SF appears to be an anomaly but we all know what demographic is responsible for STDs in that city.

Is having an STI better or worse than having an STD? Asking for a friend...

Memo to self: Do not ‘roll the dice’ in Baltimore. The odds are against you.

My guess is that SF underreports. Don’t want to stigmatize anyone...

Are the statisticians saying today’s society is more open than the “free love generation” of the 60’s and 70’s, where everywhere you turned you fell into a hole. Wholly cow. My guess is no one is getting any sleep.

I think STI and STD are just newer more modern names for what used to be called VD.

Baltimore used to be filled with Rats - the city has become too flithy and nasty for them.

It appears that in two groups of people, that is the case.

That was when we had a polite society.

I remembers when I was very young , my mother asked me to say pg instead of pregnant. 'Heck', was about a risqué as was allowed.

I moved to Baltimore for a job ten years ago. I live in the distant suburbs and now work from home office. It’s a cesspool in many ways. This is just one more.
