How To Have Safe Sexual Intercourse

Anyone having sex should know how to have safe sexual intercourse. Being safe during sex may seem like a daunting task and with all these new STDs and a number of ways to contract them, anyone would be scared of even having sex. Knowing how to have safe sexual intercourse will help put your mind at ease.

There are a few ways to be safe, but for this you'll need:

  • Condoms.
  • A keen eye.
  • A dental dam.
  • Lubrication.
  1. Open the condom. Do not use scissors or your teeth while opening it, doing so risks the condom being cut.
  2. Make sure the condom is facing the proper way. To do this, look at the condom and see which way it would roll open. Make sure it would roll open down.
  3. Before putting the condom on, make sure you have an erection.
  4. Put the condom on the tip of the penis, leave a little room at the tip of the condom for semen to collect.
  5. Begin to roll the condom down the shaft of the penis.

Giving safe oral sex is also important. When receiving oral sex, it's suggested you use a condom. When giving oral sex to a female, it's suggested you use a dental dam cloth. To properly use a dental dam, do as follows:

  1. Take the dental dam and make sure there are no holes or tears in it.
  2. Take the dental dam and hold it against the genitals.

When choosing a lubrication, there are some things you should check for:

  1. Water based lubrication is the most commonly suggest lubrication. Oil based lubrication can break down the latex condom and dental dam. It's not suggested to use any type of cooking oil, petroleum jelly, or any other oil based lubrication. If you are unsure about what kind of lubrication you have, simply check the label.
  2. Tingling, numbing and warming lubrications are meant to give more sexual pleasure during sex. While these lubrications are fine for vaginal sex, they are discouraged for anal sex. During anal sex, any pain is a bad sign and means that the anus isn't properly simulated. Using tingling, numbing or warming lubrications can make it harder to sense any pain.

Before you have sex with anyone, it's a good idea to visually see their genitals. If any open sores or lesions are spotted, it's strongly discouraged to have sex with them. These are signs of HPV or Genital Herpes. While someone with these STDs may not always have signs, it's always a good idea to simply look. If you are having any unusual discharges, burning, burning while passing urine, itching, rashes or anything unusual you should talk to your doctor as soon as possible. These are all signs of STDs. Getting tested regularly is also a good idea.
