Our country is at an all-time low as sexually transmitted infections are at an all-time high, according to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention's 2014 National Data for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis Fact Sheet.
The report reveals cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis have gone up for the first time since 2006. An estimated 1.4 million cases of chlamydia were reported in 2014, a nearly 3 percent rise from 2013, which is the highest figure of any STI the CDC has ever seen. Gonorrhea and syphilis also increased for the first time since 2006, with just under 20,000 cases of syphilis and more than 350,000 cases of gonorrhea.

We bet you've never heard this before, but by not using a condom, you're missing out on some amazing sex—and Trojan suggests a lot of you are missing out.
