    Types of Condoms

    One of the ways we can practice safer sex is by ensuring we are using protective barriers, such as condoms. Some people think that condoms ruin sex but along with keeping us safe, many condoms are designed to enhance pleasure. It's all about figuring out what kind of condoms you prefer for which activities. Which one you choose will depend on your needs and preferences.

    Is Oral Sex Safe?

    Is Oral Sex Safe?

    Is it really necessary to practice safer oral sex? A lot of people would argue that it really ruins the experience. It's also a fairly common perception that there is no need for safer sex methods when engaging in oral sex. Since there is no risk of anyone getting pregnant when having oral sex, most people think that using protection isn't important. There are more reasons than just potential pregnancies for using protection when engaging in oral sex. Unprotected sex of any kind still leaves you open to potential risks.

    What Is Fluid Bonding?

    What Is Fluid Bonding?

    Have you ever heard the term "fluid bonding"? Fluid bonding is a fairly simple, but an important concept in a relationship. Put simply, it is the agreement between two people to share bodily fluids. This may not seem like a big deal, but it has some crucial implications for the state of the relationship, trust, and open communication. There can be different and distinct levels of fluid bonding. For example, you may consent to share saliva with someone but that doesn't mean that you would be willing to have unprotected sex with them or share blood with them. In most cases, fluid bonding typically refers to the choice to have unprotected sex with an ongoing partner. For it to be considered fluid bonding, it must be a deliberate choice made by the couple.
