How To Avoid STDs (List of Common STIs)

AVOID 19 Sexually Transmitted Infections (new list)

Sexually transmitted infections (also known as STIs, or STDs for ‘sexually transmitted infections/diseases,’ or VD for ‘venereal diseases’) are infections that have a high probability of being spread from person to person through sexual contact.

People are hooking up like crazy!

It’s like “sport sexing” out there right now. And you just have to be super careful to protect you and your partner’s mind, body and spirit.

As women–because of our hormonal cycles–each time we make love our boundaries and desires change. And with our vaginal mucous membranes being so delicate, we have to be extra careful not to get an STI (STD).

Watch this video from my YourTango expert series with John Gray, the famous author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, Women Are From Venus, and Melissa White, CEO of LuckyBloke condom samplers, about how you can be VERY safe and still have a lot of sex partners before going exclusive.

Note: If you already know the size condoms you wear, you can go to Amazon and get these Trojan Supra Polyurethane Condoms. They are polypropylene condoms which do not breakdown when you use organic oil for lubrication.

PROTECT YOURSELF

Listen, some guys will “bareback” (go without a condom) whenever they think they can get away with it. Not all guys, but enough that as women we must insist on the safe sex talk and establishing our boundaries around what we are OK with and what is off limits.

Before you have sex with someone, please have the “safe sex” talk.

The safe sex talk is where you go over:

1) any boundaries or issues you have
2) the date and results of your most recent STD tests and
3) what kind of sex (protected, unprotected) you’d had and with how many people since your last test
as well as
4) your safe sex practices

WHEN should you sleep with them? As soon as you both want to as long as you are able to have the issues above clarified first.

Just remember, for women, we pretty much fall in love with every guy we have sex with. So make sure you consider your feelings for each other.  Because there’s an emotional connection happening when you’re this intimate.

Be really clear you’re not having sex because you feel it’s expected.

You can always kiss, hug and play with each other’s genitals. There is no rule that says you need to have oral or intercourse until you’re both ready.

Listen to your hert. And know your facts!

Condoms cannot protect you from some of these infections. That’s why it’s ALWAYS important to do a visual check of your partners genitals and really their whole body.

If you read the Herpes STD update link below you’ll see that herpes can present as a “zit” or lesion on the skin without even being on the genitals.

And though many people do have herpes, if you don’t you’re lucky. Try to do everything possible to avoid it. It hurts like hell and for some it can make having the safe sex talk that much more embarrassing.

People feel ashamed about having it and often don’t want to bring it up, thinking it’s no big deal. But if you don’t have it, it IS a big deal.

That’s why having the safe sex talk is VITAL.

Here are some resources from my website to keep you and your lovers safe:

I’m all for having lots of partners SAFELY.

If you’re a man, initiating the safe sex conversation is a sign of masculine sexual leadership. Asking her for her boundaries also creates that safe environment where she can surrender to her pleasure with you.

If you’re a woman, carry a selection of condoms on you and insist that a man wear it. My friend and the CEO of LuckyBloke, Melissa White has condom sampler packages you can put in your purse.
