According to a recent U.S. study, only six cities have a higher rate of sexually transmitted diseases than this Wisconsin city known for apparently a little bit more than just a good time.

Nobody wants to know this information, it's disgusting!

That's exactly why I want to know, it's why you should know, too.

That's what I overheard two people say to one another with this STD rate study on the computer screen in front of them.

When you share this information you're about to get with someone else, you really don't want to lead with what city it is. It's more fun just to let them think about all the places around Wisconsin they may have been on 'one of those nights' when the clothes came off.

What will come to mind once you know the city that just made it very close to the top of this nasty list? It might make your skin crawl a bit.
