Yes, the idea of crabs is funny. The reality, on the other hand—not so much. Safety-wise, responsible sex practices aren't any different than they were in college (i.e., cover your stump before you hump), except now there is a significantly larger pool of people with a greater wealth of sexual experience to possibly get STDs from. Though crabs don’t have quite the same cachet as the clap or inspire the same fear as HIV, they are a serious issue that needs some less than serious attention.
