Tinder wants you to get tested for STIs


tinder_sti2Tinder may have gotten its start as the go-to app for finding a nearby hookup, but now the fast-swiping company is boosting its rep and credibility by encouraging users to be responsible and get tested for STIs.

With sexually transmitted infection rates on the rise, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the company has teamed up with patient platform Healthvana to make sure you are thinking not just about their next date, but also about your own health and the sexual health of their potential partners. You’ll be able to access Healthvana’s clinic locator right on the app, so finding a local testing center is as easy as swiping right (or left—your call).

“Staying healthy in today’s dating world means getting tested regularly, practicing safe sex, and having honest conversations about your HIV and STD status,” says Ramin Bastini, CEO of Healthvana. Does the fact that Tinder wants to be (more) involved in your sex life make you feel anxious? Maybe we can help with that. —Alison Feller

As for keeping healthy and happy in the bedroom, you’d be surprised at the difference these foods make, our experts say.
