    Presumably, we all learned about it in health class: sexual encounters with strangers brings with it the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Stay safe, use protection and get tested. Now, Tinder is making sure its users know where to get tested with a new "Health Safety" section on its website, a simple page urging users to use condoms, be honest with their partner and to seek out free testing facilities. If you've been paying attention to recent news, you might have picked up on the health section's ulterior motive: to get the AIDS Health Foundation off Tinder's back.
