Safer Sex

There are 2 things you need to think about if you want to be safe when taking part in sexual activities.

 

 

 

1. Condoms

Condoms protect people from getting an STI, pregnancy and HIV.

 

You should always use a male condom if you or your partner has a penis.

Even if you or your partner use other kinds of contraception like the pill, you should still use a condom as it will protect you from getting an STI or HIV.

2. Consent

Consent is a big part of good, healthy, and safe sex. But it is more than just ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Talk with your partner about what you both like and what you both will allow each other to do to your bodies during sex.

You must both agree to stop when you or your partner ask to stop being touched in that way. If they say no then stop right away.

Remember

If you continue to touch when they have said stop or no, you can get in trouble. It is illegal to force someone to have sex or to make them touch you.
