The importance of safe sex when dating

Posted last December 10, 2017, 9:00 am in Entertainment report article

You know the line, "Don’t worry, I’m clean." Depending on where you live, you might want to think twice before forgoing the rubber. In an anonymous poll, only 37 percent of single women in the US admitted they use protection when doing the dirty.

Men have been given a bad rap as being the culprits when it comes to unprotected sex practices, but women are just as responsible for not only protecting their partners, but their own bodies as well. We’ve heard all the arguments. Especially guys’ favorite: "It doesn’t feel as good with a condom on." A moment of pleasure could mean a lifetime of regret. So remember, wrap up before you shack up.

Everyone has been guilty of it at least once. Whether it be 6 months ago, last week, or back in freshman year. Mostly everyone has had unprotected sex. But, depending on where you live the risk could be greater when choosing to forego using protection.

Here are some safe sex tips by Intimacy Kit...Choose low risk sexual activities that do not involve fluid exchange, such as hugging, massage or masturbating alone or in front of a partner(s).
Look at your own and your partner's genital area for any changes, including sores, discharge or unusual odours.
Getting tested and treated for STIs regularly will help you to reduce the risk of transmitting STIs to others.
Drinking or using drugs lowers your ability to make good decisions and make safer choices.
Reduce the risk of STIs when using sex toys by sterilizing the toys, using condoms with them, or not sharing them.
