Twitter can be a source of information, advice, entertainment, commentary and, well, ick.
Last week, the Centers for Disease Control’s sexually transmitted disease prevention account tweeted some (obvious?) advice: don’t wash condoms or reuse them.
The account, which also advises that a couple’s first date should be at the STD clinic to get tested, posted the tweet on July 23.

The responses to the tweet are interesting, as well.
The very first response was "turn ’em inside out."
Others were interested and/or horrified to find out "that’s a thing."
The UK’s Daily Mail wrote a story about it, which includes a history of the condom. To read it, click here .
