An interesting stat from New York City's Health Department reveals that nearly 86% of men living in the hipster 'hood didn't use condoms in 2012. (Not surprisingly, the area also had the third-highest birth rate that year.) Ridgewood/Forest Hills (80%), Northern Staten Island (78.7%), and the Upper West Side (78.4%) were also remarkably pro-bareback, which will certainly give you something to think about the next time you make eyes at a hottie in Bar Boulud.
So, who does practice safe sex? Raise a glass to the gents in Central Harlem, where 43% claim to wrap it up. Union Square/Lower Manhattan, Flushing/Clearview, and Bed-Stuy/Crown Heights hovered around 40%, too. Update your online dating filters as you see fit.
Numbers aside, let's make one thing clear, fellas. It doesn't matter where you live. If you're not 100% pro-condom when you're with us, fuhgeddaboudit. (Gothamist)
