Um... didn't young men in ancient Greece do a LOT of things...?

I thought young men in ancient Greece weren't interested in chlamys.

Ah yes, the plural of chlamydia.

Yup, and that's how they caught chlamysia...

I don't get it. Is this humorous?

On Saturdays, Hippoplidius washed his chariot in the driveway and dried it with a chlamy.

For a very small value of humor, the chlamys at the end is meant to mean clams.

I'd have done it this way:
"In ancient Greece, young men would often don their short cloaks, head to the cruising bars, and end up with chlamys'"

STD jokes are always funny.

I thought it was the shellfish industry awards, the Chlamys.

You jest, but a chlamys is the female equivalent of a banana hammock for loose wimmin.
