Safe Sex

Wherever and with whoever you do it: Be Careful.

 

​​HIV (the virus which can lead to AIDS) is present in blood, vaginal fluids, pre-cum and semen (cum). Unprotected sex is an easy way for HIV to pass from one person to another.

That’s why it’s so important to use condoms every time you have anal or vaginal sex.

 

For anal sex with men OR women, it’s always best to use condoms of a known braand like "Durex", "Mates" etc., and ideally those specifically for anal intercourse.

 

Theres always time for lube. Use water-based lubricant, like KY, when you have anal sex. This helps stop the condom breaking, and also helps prevent any physical pain or injury to the person who’s taking it.

 

It’s important to bear in mind that anal sex isn’t the only way you can catch an infection. Some diseases, such as gonorrhoea, hepatitis B and herpes, can be passed on through oral sex. You can significantly cut down the chances of catching anything through oral sex by using a condom for sucking or being sucked- you can get flavoured condoms for just this purpose. Even supermarkets carry a wide range of condoms these days so theres no excuse.

 

Almost any form of sex carries some risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you’re having sex with your wife or girlfriend and also other men, be aware that you might pass something on to her.

 

Many married men don’t use condoms for sex with their wives, relying on other forms of birth control instead. It can be really difficult to introduce condoms into a relationship after years of not using them, so the best strategy is to make sure that the sex you have with men is as safe as possible.

 

Look after your sexual health through regular testing (every 6 months or so). Call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47 for details of your local sexual health clinic, or try your local Gay and Lesbian Switchboard for details. Often the clinics operate outreach centres within bars or sunas.
