Valentine's Day tip: "The gift that keeps on giving" isn't always a good thing.

In case you were considering risking it just this once, consider this bit from the press release:
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released its Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance 2008, which estimated that nearly 19 million STIs occur each year, nearly half of which are among 15- to 24-year-olds."
