How to stay safe when having sex this summer
Share This Article:
We both know that you would be kidding yourself if you were to say that the best form of sex safe is to be celibate because that’s not going to happen for many of us. There’s nothing wrong with having a bit of fun this summer, but safer sex is all about protecting yourself without the worries of STD’s interrupting your special moment. In the words of Charlotte Crosby “ If you’re not in a relationship you should be getting tested every six months.” Safer sex can help you stay healthy and make your sex life even better! If you didn’t know, STDs are infections that are passed from one person to another during sexual activity. That includes a long list of oral, anal and vaginal sex, or genital skin to skin contact with another person. Safe sex can be fun, it just means you’re taking extra steps to protect yourself and your partner from STD's when you do decide to get down and dirty. There are lots of ways in which you can make sex safer. One of the best ways is to use a barrier- like condoms or female condoms. I know it sounds annoying but you should use either (or both) every time you have oral, anal or vaginal sex.
