The rise of infections is directly correlated, in my opinion, with the ease of MSM sex being facilitated through random, anonymous sex hookups facilitated by new smartphone geo-locator apps that are for that very purpose - to hookup. It has turned the process of meeting someone out in public (old process) to the modern day McDonalds drive-through/convenience store of sex. I can personally attest to the increased availability and frequency of sex due to the new apps originated during this time.

"But he looked so clean and disease free on Grindr!" The increase of syphilis in the MSM group is not surprising, and I don't see the attitudes that contribute to it changing anytime soon.
