WEST MEMPHIS, AR (WMC) -

A city in the Mid-South received the unwanted honor of making the Top 10 in a list of the “Most Sexually Diseased Cities in the USA.”

Using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rentapplication.com compiled the list, using reports of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.

The website measured rates per 100,000 people to compare larger cities with smaller ones.

Montgomery, Alabama ranks first on the list, with 4371 STDs or 1,899 STDs per 100,000 people.

Sitting in third is West Memphis, Arkansas. The study found only 859 STDs, but when compared to the city's population, that equates to 1717 STDs per 100,000 people.

Mobile users can view a slideshow of the top 10 most sexually diseased cities here.
