Pretty sure Gonorrhea doesn't care about one's sexual proclivities. here's an interesting chart which has some not-so surprising stats (DC rates through the roof! Utah/Idaho rates through the floor) and some you might find surprising (CA and MA are relatively low, as is the entire northeast. The South and midwest are highest, with concentrations in many bible belt states.) Do with this what you wish.

In Western Arkansas your best bet for catching clap is by visiting an Eastern Oklahoma bar.

I had several single co-workers catch the clap or crabs there.

Needless to say, we razzed them unmercifully.

“Pretty sure Gonorrhea doesn’t care about one’s sexual proclivities”

Of course it doesn’t. But 1/5 (20%) of men who have sex with men, get gonorrhea.

Syphallis rates are 44 times greater amount MSM, too.

“CDC conducted sentinel surveillance in 28 cities and found the proportion of cases resistant to fluoroquinolone antibiotics (a first-line treatment for gonorrhea) increased from 4.1 percent in 2003 to 6.8 percent in 2004. Resistance is especially worrisome in men who have sex with men, where it was eight times higher than among heterosexuals (23.8 percent vs. 2.9 percent). In April 2004, CDC recommended that fluoroquinolones no longer be used as treatment for gonorrhea among men who have sex with men. These antibiotics were also not recommended to treat the disease in anyone in California or Hawaii, where resistance has been widespread for years. Outside of these states, the prevalence of fluoroquinolone resistance among heterosexuals remains low at 1.3 percent.”

CDC sez:

In 2009, African Americans had 20.5 times the reported gonorrhea rates as Whites.
