To avoid getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or a sexually transmitted infection (STI) it is important to have safe sex. Safe sex is important so it is good to know how to talk about it with your partner and learn to make safe sex sexy.
Yes, this could be the most awkward and unromantic conversation you have with your partner. But! Couples that have this talk end up trusting each other more and having more fun in the bedroom – two big factors for a long-lasting relationship.
Making love is a fantastic part of life, but sex can also carry risks. There’s the risk of catching or passing on HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. And also of getting pregnant, or getting your partner pregnant, when that’s not something you want.
