Preventive Services Task Force says everyone should get tested -- so I did

Sex is fun. In all its various forms and wild positions, it's the single greatest thing you can share with another human being (or multiple human beings, if that's your bag). But you can share more than fun. So that's why I decided to go to the Denver Metro Health Clinic at 605 Bannock Street to find out if I was clean and clear. Yes, waiting for the results can be scary -- but getting tested is definitely the right thing to do.
