In 2007, the District of Columbia reported a far higher rate of AIDS diagnoses than any other area (though the rate in the wider Washington area was surpassed by other metropolitan areas). A 2009 local government report found the capital city had an HIV prevalence rate of 3%, including figures as high as 7.2% for 40-49 year olds, and 6.5% for black males.

AIDS diagnosis rates in New York State, Florida and Maryland were much higher than the national average of 12.7 cases per 100,000 population per year.

Please know that it’s not a game out here in the DMV area. My fellas, wrap it up each and EVERY time. You are not IMMUNE!!! Sistas, don’t let a guy sweet talk you into having sex unprotected. A few minutes of fun is not worth a lifetime of pain.
