Its important to play safe while dating. If you must engage in sexual intercourse it’s critical to engage in safe sex. Playing safe has the advantage of avoiding unwanted pregnancies and also in preventing STD. Committing to engage in safe sex helps partners feel more confident when making their sexual decisions. Having safe sex may not necessarily be foolproof. Deciding to consistently practice it also forces partners make conscious decisions to engage in sex instead of letting it just happen. It’s vital to use condoms during both vaginal and anal sex.
There are several important tips that assist partners on how to have safe sex. Below is a detailed summary
If you are using male condoms during sex; you must put on the condom the sooner your partner’s penis erects. Putting on the condom early reduces the dangers of passing skin to skin diseases. Putting it on that early is also necessary since it’s very easy to forget putting on one the moment you are consumed by the heat of the moment. Female condoms should be inserted very early before sex and should be lubricated from both the inside and outside.
Checking the expiry date of the condom is very important before opening the packet. It’s also necessary to ensure that the package of the condom is intact. This is done by checking the air bubble. Using silicone-based lubricants or water is ideal during intercourse. Proper lubrication drastically reduces the danger of tearing and other damages during intercourse. This minimizes the chances of transmitting STD. It’s also important to use lubrications even if the condoms you are using are lubricated. It’s never absurd to keep your favorite brand of lubricant bottle next to your bed.
A majority of people know how to have safe sex but make silly mistakes. If you make a mistake of putting a condom inside out, throw it away and start all over again with another condom. Don’t roll it off trying to use it again
