When you HAVE to do it & there is NO protection… ORAL sex is best!
Oral Sex poses a very reduced level of risk for transmitting HIV & Hepatitis.
Barebacking & being the “bottom” poses the greatest risk!
Remember: Other STD’s are of equal risk no matter what you do when sharing skin time & fluids.
LOTS OF LUBE!!! THE WETTER THE BETTER!!!
It is the micro tears that happen in the rectum so easily that cause the increase in the spread of viruses & bacteria. You can greatly reduce your risk by using lots of lube. But remember lube alone does NOT prevent the spread of infections.
Know your partner, Negotiate safety, Know your limits & have a “way out”, Communicate!
When there is no protection… there is… mutual masturbation!
Cleanliness is key! When feces and friction mix, tears are more likely to happen. And whether you are top or bottom, cleaning afterwards is a reduction in risk.
If you are on the DL… you can get confidential, non-judgemental information from the staff at HRS anytime!
Think Outside “The Box”
Lube it up! The Wetter the Better!
Remember that lube does NOT protect from infections by itself BUT if it is all you have it can protect you from the tears that matter.
Know your status & your partners status.
Foreplay CAN include talking.
Mutual masturbation poses almost no risk at all.
Think about where you ejatulate… you can prevent a lot of infections by cumming outside the body.
Remember that PRE-cum can also pass infections.
If there is NO protection, ORAL sex can save your life.
Anal is the most risky, Vaginal is 2nd, and Oral sex is a GREAT option.
Vaginal fluids can pass HIV and other STD’s.
Moving one persons fluids to the next person can pass viruses & bacteria, even yeast infections & bacterial vaginosis.
Any toy that is anatomically the same as a penis can be used with a condom.
Use your own toys.
Clean toys thoroughly. Warm, soapy water works for some toys. Silicone can be boiled.
Clean toys or apply new condom in between each partner.
Also clean or apply new condom when switching from one body part to another.
ORAL sex is a safer option when no protection is available.
Open cuts on fingers, hands, or feet should not be exposed to vaginal fluids or anus.
It is very easy to get a bacterial infection in the vagina from the butt.
When fisting use LOTS of LUBE and TAKE YOUR TIME! Also latex gloves are an option for safety.
