Thank goodness for technology!
Now we can prove to sexual partners that we're STD free! Just by bumping phones!
The new smartphone feature called "safe bumping" uses an app called MedXSafe where people can quickly exchange contact info and STD-free status.
The CDC reports that almost 50% of sexually active high schoolers account for almost half of the 19 million new STIs reported yearly!
Don't they teach how important condoms are in high school??
After getting the all clear from your doctor, they can enter your clean bill of health into the app.
We're not sure how many people will freely share their medical history with strangers but hey, whatever keeps the kids STD free!
So remember to bump your phones before you start bumping uglies! LOLz!
