That's is an excellent idea. I hardly ever go to clubs anymore, but if this had been around when I used to go I am sure I would have been tested (at the time I was regularly tested at a clinic as I still am). I think by getting tested in a public place it lets people know that you are aware of STD's and that you don't live in denial about the consequences of your actions.

I recently went to the Cat Club with a few of my friends, and one of my friends took the test. I found a lot of people didn't take it too seriously, though, and I heard a lot of people mocking it. Personally, I think it's a great idea, but a lot of people aren't open enough about their sexuality to actually take advantage of it.
