Girl Code” is all about being real, and MTV’s first ladies of comedy are going to use a special, upcoming episode of their show to take a comedic approach to a serious subject. Yup, they’re going to talk about STDs and how you can protect yourself.

World AIDS Day is fast approaching (remember that it’s on December 1, folks!) and “Girl Code” and MTV’s Get Yourself Tested (GYT) campaign have come together. The special episode, which will be airing November 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, will have funny skits to help loosen people up and get them to talk about the issues of STDs, HIV and knowing your status. As it is now, about half of sexually active people will get an STD by the time they turn 25. On top of that, about one in five people with an STD don’t know they have one. In other words, they might be spreading it around without even realizing it.

The point of GYT isn’t to scare you about STDs, though. It’s about educating you, empowering you and protecting you. So we totes encourage you to check out the episode (and not just because we’re biased about our “Girl Code” love). We also encourage you to check out the GYT website, which can answer your STD Q’s and help you find a place to get yourself tested. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD or not is to see a doctor, as demonstrated below:
