Safe Sex

15-seksSafe sex is important. Of course it can be sudden, can happen fast, and before you actually know what to do. That’s why its good to be well prepared.

Safe sex: condoms and a few other things you should know. If you have condoms and watch out for a few things, then you’ll already be much safer. Just like crossing the street. If you do it with your eyes open, it will go much easier.

How do I use a condom?Look at the bottom of the Sex page, there you will find information about using condoms. Tip: practice using a condom.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) can be transmitted through a variety of modes of contact, from one person to the other. They are also called venereal diseases.

Sperm-blood contact: for example if you swallow sperm. Sperm in the stomach is not a problem, but it first has to go through the mouth and the esophagus where small “cuts” are present. Just like in the anus. That can cause sperm-blood contact. For example when your gums are inflamed. Or another cut in the mouth. If the one that came in your mouth had an STD, then you run the risk of contracting that STD through sperm-blood contact. And its best not to let sperm come in contact with somebody’s anus when dry-humping.

Precome-blood contact: is similar to sperm-blood contact. Although the chance is smaller, there is a chance of the virus being present when someone has an STD. So when it comes to oral sex and anal sex’s “in and out” method, its just as risky as going all the way.

Do I have inflamed gums? If you don’t brush your teeth thoroughly, there will remain leftover food between teeth. This will cause plaque, and can inflame the gums. Sometimes you will see blood when the inflamed gum area is touched. So if you brush your teeth regularly, floss, and use (real) toothpicks, you will keep your mouth healthy. If you don’t have cuts or wounds in your mouth and you don’t swallow the sperm, then the risk of contacting an STD will remain small. If you’re not sure, you shouldn’t let anyone come in your mouth.

Via saliva – there are also STD’s that can be contracted through kissing, like herpes. A cold-sore is also a form of herpes. If you have a cold-sore you can transmit herpes to someone whom you are having oral sex with. He will then get ‘herpes genitalis’. Another STD that can be contracted through contact with saliva is Hepatitis B. The only thing that will help against Hepatitis is a vaccination.

Have you contracted an STD? Go to your physician or the Municipal Health clinic. Your physician has to keep your medical information a secret, so you don’t have to worry about him/her contacting your parents about your STD. Your doctor will help cure the disease. Don’t wait too long or you run the risk of the disease become worse, and that is never a good thing.

If you don’t want to go to a physician – Then you can also go to an anonymous testing clinic, or your local Municipal health clinic.

If in doubt do something about it – Don’t just sit still. Find test-facilities nearby and don’t be ashamed. It’s for your own good that you take action. And for others you might make love with too.

Panic? If you read all of this, you might think: eeek, better not have any sex at all. But that is a bit exaggerated. You could take it upon your self to do everything in your power to have safe sex. By using condoms for example. And by being honest to yourself and to each other, that will go a long way. You could also both take STD tests, to find out how the situation is. And if something does go wrong, don’t panic.
