Sorry, But the Source of the Problem Has Been Misidentified

10/.25/18 Chicago Tribune:
Primary care doctors 'not doing enough' to curb STDs
 As rates of sexually transmitted infections steadily rise nationwide, public health officials and experts say primary care doctors need to step up screening and treatment.
"We know that doctors are not doing enough screening for STDs," said David Harvey, executive director at the National Coalition of STD Directors. The failure to screen routinely "is leading to an explosion in STD rates," he said, adding that cutbacks in funding and a lack of patient awareness about the risks make it worse.
I would think the unwillingness of men and women to keep their pants on unless in monogamous relationships is what is causing the explosion of STD rates.
