AIDS is a becoming a huge problem among, non IV drug using heterosexual women...I believe the fastest growing group. If your guy hates condoms, how about the female condom...my clients really like them. If I find a site, I'll post info/picture. Even if you are not worried about AIDS (????) Chalamydia is the # 1 STD now...and Syphilis has made a glorious comeback.
Remember, you may trust your partner, but can you trust every partner they have ever been with, and they have ever been with, and they have ever been with...and so on?
Get tested for HIV and STDS at least yearly or as per you healthcare provider.
I was watching a show the other night on The Life Network (Don't know if you get it in the states)
but it was all about oral sex
and they had 4 men and 4 women on it and they were asked about techniques and things like that and what one person liked better and so on (
okay I can't believe I just admitted I watch sex shows!!) anyway to get to the point and there is one, the hosts asked the people if they used protection when preforming oral and the all said no, then they went out in the street and asked a whole bunch of people and it came back that, oral sex isn't considered actual sex so no they don't use protection. I think they actual numbers from the streets were for every 5 out of 6 people asked 5 didn't use protection. It just boggled my mind. Don't these people know that stds and HIV/Aids can be transmitted through the mouth as well as the usual parts?
Every time my boyfriend and I had sex, we used a condom as well as the pill, even my mom and dad (YUCK to even think about this) who have been married for almost 22 years still use a condom (My mom and I are very open with each other. 'nuff said)
Anyway not exactly on topic, but I didn't want to start a new thread.
Princss Purr, sending
vibes to you and our husband.
