If you're going to do it the woods, you'll need to play it safe - and we don't just mean by using condoms. You’ll want to spray on some bug repellant too, even if you’re not doing what comes naturally in nature during your next camping trip. According to Condom Depot’s Information Center, new evidence suggests that Lyme disease is an STD
