Right, I read about those hand dryers too & I try to avoid those as much as I can too.

Actually, I've been to the Bahamas already like over 20 yrs ago, so I really don't have to go back. My SO hasn't, but we'll probably go somewhere else anyway.

You SHOULD go to the Bahamas. It's an amazing place.

As others have pointed out, you're from Southern California. I'm not sure, what part you're from but I'm originally from San Diego, and have definitely seen MANY, MANY warnings about STD's. In my early 20's I lived in Pacific Beach (small beach community in SD) and there were constant reminders about how this little beach town had some of the highest STD rates in the nation. Not only were there constant reminders about this, but free STD clinics all over the community. So unless you're from some little small community in Riverside or Inland Empire in So Cal, there is no avoiding this were you live. In fact, I remember just last year reading an article how STD's are in the rise in SD. I even did a favor and found the article for you. If this is not a significant reminder that you're NOT in the clear where you live, I don't know what is....
