Safer sex

  1. 1. SAFER SEX<br />SEX IS PURE PLEASURE BUT EXPOSING OURSELVES TO A NASTY DISEASE ..NOT VERY MUCH <br />
  2. 2. TALK THE TALK<br />Talking with partner about STI’s before having sex<br />If you think one of you has infection WAIT until you both get tested<br />Don’t believe in STI myths such as<br />You can tell by looking if someone’s infected<br />If he pulls out before he comes, I won’t be exposed<br />Lesbians don’t get STIs<br />
  3. 3. SAFER-SEX GUIDELINES<br />Use barrier protection for sex. Latex condoms, squares of latex, dental dams are some choices.<br />Use protection even if you don’t need birth control<br />Washing up before and after sex is good hygiene<br />Direct contact with blood can transmit infections<br />It’s never too late for safe sex. If you have not been safe in the past then do it now<br />
  4. 4. ACTIVIRY-SPECIFIC SAFE SEX TIPS<br />Vaginal Intercourse: use a lubricated latex, female condom or male condom. No other method works.<br />Anal Intercourse: High risk activity, for sufficient protection your male partner should use a strong latex condom with plenty of lubricant<br />Oral sex on a man: Not as risky, especially if man does not come in your mouth. Use a non lubricated latex condom<br />Oral Sex on a woman: It carries some risk, use a dental dam, a cut open latex glove, a non lubricated condom. <br />
  5. 5. ACTIVITY-SPECIFIC SAFE SEX TIPS 2<br />Fisting and finger play: Tissue can be torn, somewhat risky, for protection use latex gloves<br />Rimming: Risky, for protection use non microwaveable plastic wrap or a dental dam<br />Dildos, sex toys, vibrators: Put a condom before use, do not share it without washing it well<br />Water sports: Low risk, as long as there is no blood<br />
  6. 6. Least risky sexual activities<br />Intimate touching and pleasuring that do not include vaginal, anal or oral penetration are less likely to spread STIs. <br />Kissing, hugging, rubbing, hand jobs, mutual masturbations, massage, fantasizing<br />
  7. 7. Most birth control methods-such as the pill, Norplant, the diaphragm, and the IUD- DO NOT protect against STIs<br />
  8. 8. CHALENGES TO USING PROTECTION<br />OUR OWN ATTITUDE: We have to be safe and keep our partner safe unless we are very sure<br />OUR PARTNERS ATTIDUDE <br />DRUG AND ALCOHOL USE: When we get drunk or high we compromise our judgment and weaken our power to protect ourselves<br /> LACK OF INFORMATION: WE HAVE TO LEARN ABOUT HOW TO PROTECT OURELVES<br />
  9. 9. Discussion question<br />I think that even someone that we have been for a long time together with, we can not trust that much because they might go and cheat on us while in the relationship and we might get a disease. What do we do to make sure we are very safe, but also be able to have unprotected sex with our husband or long term relationship?<br />
