Safer Sex Practices
This is the ONLY way to protect yourself completely. Many college students are choosing not to have sex.
Say NO! to casual sex. Having one partner for a short time and then moving on to another partner (serial monogamy) is high-risk behavior.
Be direct and honest with partners. TALK first!
Alcohol and other drugs lower your ability to make sensible self- protecting decisions. Drunk sex is rarely safer sex.
Use a lubricated condom every time you have sex, even if you are using another form of birth control
RUBBER DAMS or plastic wrap---Use with oral sex to prevent transmission of STI's.
CHOOSE LOWER RISK SEXUAL ACTIVITIES
Kissing, hugging, massaging and touching are generally safer activities than intercourse.
