So you want to be safe?
When it comes to sex, we all want the same thing: a good time. And a good time is not just having sex, but doing so safely and finding pleasure. To be safe means to protect yourself, your partner, and your future. This piece is for you if you want to be safe but don’t know-how.
There are many ways to be safe when you’re sexually active. Unfortunately, some people don’t realize the importance of being safe and end up putting themselves and their partners at risk.
One of the most important things you can do to be safe is to use protection. This means using condoms whenever you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex. It’s also important to use a new condom each time you have sex and to make sure the condom is properly lubricated. If you’re unsure about how to use condoms, plenty of resources can help.
Another way to be safe is by getting tested for STDs regularly. If you are sexually active, you must get tested at least once a year. This allows you to catch any STDs early and get treatment if necessary. There are many types of STD tests available, so talk to your doctor or healthcare provider about which one is right for you.
Finally, communication is key when it comes to safer sex. It would be best if you communicate with your partner about what activities you’re comfortable with and what protection you’ll be using. It’s also important to discuss any STDs that either of you may have before having sex. Communicating openly and honestly can help ensure that both you and your partner have a good time while staying safe in the process.
