Safety First - Sex Next - Safety Sex Practice

How to practice safer sex.
Deciding to have sex is a big step. It can be scary, nerve-wracking, and--most of all--super exciting. Practicing safe sex means that you can more easily enjoy having sex with a new partner, confident in the knowledge that you're protecting your body and your health, and that you'll be able to have fun exploring your sexuality with a partner you trust. You need to learn to stay safe against STDs, unwanted pregnancies, and how to avoid other risky sexual behaviors.

Staying Safe Against STDs
1-Get tested regularly. Go to your doctor or a free clinic regularly to get screened for HIV and other sexually-transmitted infections or diseases. Get tested together before entering into a new relationship, and get tested regularly while you're in relationships, to be on the safe side.
Go with your partner and do it together if you're nervous. It's not lame to request that your partner do this enthusiastically and willingly. If your partner is not willing to practice safe sex, find another partner,

2-Use latex condoms. Male condoms should be used for any kind of sex, including vaginal, anal, and oral contact. The male latex condom is easy to use, efficient, cheap, and widely available for free at Planned Parenthood locations and other counseling services. Consistently and correctly using latex condoms during sexual intercourse can reduce the risk of STDs and pregnancy with up to 99% reliability.
If you’re allergic to latex, you can also use polyurethane condoms, which offer some protection against STIs. Natural or lambskin condoms offer reliable protection against pregnancy, but the material isn’t fine enough to prevent the transmission of some infections, making them less reliable for that purpose

3-Consider using a female condom for penetrative vaginal sex. They are effective against most STIs and can help reduce the chances of pregnancy, though the failure rate is higher than with hormonal contraception.
You should never use a female and male condom at the same time, which can cause friction that will tear one or both of the condoms, making them ineffective.

4-Use a dental dam for oral sex. Dental dams are latex sheets, or condoms that have been cut open to form squares, used to reduce the risk of passing blood and other fluids to the mouth from the genitals. These are effective in preventing STIs and HIV.
To use a dental dam, first make sure the latex doesn’t have any holes, tears, or other damage. Rinse off any cornstarch if necessary, as this can promote vaginal infection. Cover the genitalia or anus while performing oral sex.
Never switch back and forth between the vagina and anus without first replacing the dental dam. Discard after use. Never reuse a dental dam.

5-Understand that oral and anal sex are also risky. The risk of infection when having intercourse anally is greater because the skin of the anus is thinner, making infection and disease transmission more of a possibility. Likewise, sexually transmitted diseases and infections are transmittable between the mouth and the genitals, making unprotected oral sex also a risky behavior.

Preventing Unwanted Pregnancies
1- Consider using hormonal birth control. Hormonal contraception methods regulate a woman’s fertility cycles to prevent pregnancy. The most common type of hormonal birth control is often referred to as "the pill" and is taken orally every day. When taken correctly and regularly, hormonal birth control is 99% effective. If you're interested in hormonal birth control, talk to your gynecologist about a prescription.

Other hormonal methods are also available and quite reliable, up to 99% effective. Hormonal patches and implants can last for several weeks and are quite effective. Injections of estrogen, progestin or Depo-Provera are also used in some cases, administered every few months, making them less prone to misuse than other forms of hormonal contraception. Vaginal hormone rings are typically worn during the month and removed during menstruation, offering a similar 99% efficiency.

2-Always take hormonal birth control correctly. Hormonal birth control is incredibly effective, but only when taken appropriately and consistently. You need to take your pill at the same time each day, and avoid smoking, which can increase your blood-pressure and cause dangerous health concerns.
Pay attention to how your body responds to the hormones, and discuss any concerns. It sometimes takes some experimenting to get the right medication.
Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to take your pill and do it at the same time each day.
Never skip your period purposefully by going straight to another pack of birth control. This can have extremely negative effects on your health and reproductive system.

3-Consider other varieties of barrier contraception. The following methods offer no protection against the transmission of HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases, but are somewhat effective at preventing pregnancy. Diaphragms, contraceptive sponges, and cervical caps contain spermicidal gel and are placed over the cervix. These methods of contraception are typically worn for at least 6 hours after intercourse.

At most, these methods are about 90% effective, on average, making them somewhat less reliable than other methods of birth control. The fact that they offer no protection against STDs and are typically more difficult to obtain than condoms makes them a less recommended, but still a useful method

4-Make use of emergency contraception as a last resort. Drugs like Plan-B, Next Choice, and Ella can decrease the possibility of pregnancy by causing a short but strong burst of hormones that prevent ovulation. Most don’t require a prescription, though some do have age limits that vary depending on the country and state.
Emergency contraception is not the same thing as an abortion. Basically, it acts like a super-charged dose of regular hormonal birth control, and it effects your body in the same way. It's pregnancy prevention.

5-Use both birth control and condoms to reduce the risk of pregnancy. Condoms prevent both pregnancy and infections, it's true, but they're also prone to mistakes, tears, and other accidents. Using other kinds of contraceptives in addition to condoms is the best way to practice the safest kind of sex, so you can have fun with your partner in a more worry-free environment.

Acting Safely
1-Always take time to talk with your partners before and after sex. Each time you enter into a new sexual relationship, it's important to take time to talk to your partner before jumping between the sheets. Be honest about your own sexual experiences and your own desire to practice safe sex. If your partner doesn't want to practice safe sex, or isn't forthright with you about their sexual history and experiences, don't have sex with them.]
You don't need to have the "numbers" talk, necessarily, but you do need to find out if your partner has regularly engaged in risky sexual behaviors. Get tested together before you decide to have sex.

2-Always make sure sex is consensual. Make sure your partner is capable of consenting to sex and that both people in the relationship agree to the sexual activity each and every time. Consenting once doesn't mean consenting to future sexual encounters, and likewise consenting to one activity in no way suggests the consent of another. Never assume consent

3-Limit your number of sexual partners. Try to avoid hook-ups and one-night-stands with people, especially people you don't know and won't have contact with. Choose sexual partners smartly to avoid risks, and avoid sex with anyone who doesn't practice safely and respect your wishes.
When spontaneous nights happen, you don't need to feel guilty as long as you remember to be responsible and practice the safe sex you want to have. Carry a few condoms with you and stay on birth control, even if you're between partners.
It's true that the only 100% effective method of birth control and preventing diseases and infections is abstinence. Only have sex with committed, monogamous partners that you trust.

4-Keep sex toys clean. Sex toys are lots of fun, but they must be kept clean and hygienic. Always wash them between uses, and never use one that you're not sure is clean. A weak solution of disinfectant in a bowl of water is a cheaper option. Rinse the toys well and be sure to dry them before storing them in a sealed bag in a clean and dry environment.

5-Know your body. Learn to recognize the symptoms of sexual transmitted diseases and infections, and pay attention to your body if you're sexually active.
Boys should have regular physicals and examinations by a doctor, aside from regular tests. Make sure you're in good health and nothing is preventing you from enjoying and exploring your sexuality.
Girls should schedule regular check-ups with their gynecologists, especially if taking hormonal birth control. An examination and pap-smear is generally required every few months to get the prescription renewed

6-Avoid mixing drugs and alcohol with sex. Having sex under the influence of drugs or alcohol is never a safe idea. Your safe sex practices can be compromised and less effective if you're not in your right mind, and you also put yourself at risk of making poor decisions. Stay safe.
Go to parties with sober friends who'll be able to monitor you if you plan on getting a little tipsy. Remember they've got your best interest at heart and listen to what they say.

ü  Do not use petroleum- or oil-based products, as these will weaken the condom. There are lots of good water-based lubricants on the market.
ü  You should wear a condom to prevent the transmission of STDs and to prevent pregnancy.
ü  Carry condoms with you just in case, but try to avoid keeping them close to your body (e.g. in your wallet), as heat will accelerate the breakdown of latex.
ü  Sex includes other options besides vaginal and anal sex. Manual and oral sex also allow for sexual activity without the need for contraception. Bear in mind that diseases like HIV can still be transmitted over the smallest injuries in your mouth, for example. Use a condom to be totally safe, especially if your partner has not been tested for HIV recently.
ü  It is a good idea to put on a condom as soon as possible. While traces of sperm in Cowper's Fluid ("pre cum") are believed to be unlikely to cause pregnancy, this is essential to prevent the spread or contraction of STIs.
ü  In India condoms are available free of charge from Government General Hospital and AIDS awareness centers .
ü  Before sex, make sure you use a condom for if you don't you could get pregnant!
