Preventing Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Preventing sexually transmitted diseases is not a subject for fun. This website is about having fun with the battle of the sexes. But there has to be a page like this to warn all my readers about the dangers of sex. Is sex dangerous? Yes, if her husband finds out about you. Yes, if her father realises his little girl is pregnant, and you are responsible.

But this subject is far more serious than that. Sex is dangerous, because it can lead to AIDS, Hepatitis, and many other nasty diseases which can be debilitating or lethal. You really do NOT want to die of sex. So this is my page about safe sex and preventing sexually transmitted diseases.

If you are sexually active, please please please take precautions. The easiest way to do this is to carry condoms at all times (you never know when you might get lucky). It doesn’t matter whether you are male or female, make sure you keep a condom handy.

And never be tempted to have unprotected sex. If your girlfriend says it is safe, don’t believe her. If your boyfriend says ‘bareback’ is the only way to enjoy sex, don’t believe him. An unwanted pregnancy is bad enough, a sexually transmitted disease is bad news, and HIV infection is VERY bad news.

The problem is that you don’t know the sexual history of your partner. You might think you do, but truly you don’t. I once heard it said that you are only SIX people away from every other person on the planet. In other words, you know somebody (1) who knows somebody (2) who knows somebody (3) who knows somebody (4) who knows somebody (5) who knows somebody (6). By the time you get to (6), you have covered every person on the planet. That is how close you are to somebody who has AIDS, hepatitis, syphilis, chlamydia, or any one of a number of different sexually transmitted diseases. It pays to be careful. NEVER have unprotected sex with somebody whose sexual history you don’t know.

The only way of totally preventing sexually transmitted diseases is never to come into contact with another human being, but that is a rather depressing approach. Sex is fantastic, either as a recreational activity or as a way of being intimate with the love of your life. I don’t pretend to be an expert on safe sex or on sexually transmitted diseases, so I am going to give you all a link to a website, where you can investigate them to your heart’s content. There, my job is done. I’m going back to enjoying myself. Please enjoy yourself too, but PLEASE be careful. Don’t have unprotected sex unless you know your partner VERY well and would trust them with your life, because that is precisely what you are doing when you have unprotected sex.
