National Condom Month

Unprotected sex can hurt your health — and the economy. According
to the CDC
, the U.S. spends up to $20 billion each year treating
sexually transmitted infections. That doesn’t factor in STI-induced
sick days: Each case of syphilis costs an estimated $112 in lost
productivity. But as health groups will be shouting all month long,
there’s a simple way to save you and that money — the condom. Our
little/large (remove as applicable) latex friend is up to 95% effective
at stopping HIV and slashes risk of STIs such as gonorrhea and
chlamydia. So cover up. — THEUNIS BATES
