We have all heard about the need to practice safe sex...
but just how safe is safe sex?
What is safe sex?
Safe sex usually means having sexual relations (sex) with
another person in a way that prevents the chance of
catching a Sexually Transmitted Disease/Infection
(STD/STI) or getting a girl pregnant. Condoms are given
as the answer - but are condoms really the answer?
The implied message is that you can have sex and no bad
consequences will happen to you - all you will get from
the experience is pleasure. What an absolutely perfect
situation (it appears)!
Very thin rubber covering placed over your
penis to prevent actual skin-to-skin contact with your
sex partner. Designed to prevent semen from entering
the other person as well as transfer of disease from
person to person.
Sex using your mouth to stimulate another person's
genitals or vice-versa.
How effective are condoms?
Genital Warts STD
Add to this the fact that 3% of condoms break
or slip off and less that 50% of teens 15-19 know how to
correctly use a condom - the statistics above become even
(Information is from The Medical Institute)
Is oral sex safe-sex?
Absolutely not! You can get any STD through oral sex,
whether you are giving or receiving oral sex (sucking or
licking). Most people with a STD/STI do NOT show any
symptoms - see the STD/STI page.
So - what now?
From a physical perspective (disease and pregnancy
protection), condoms do not have the complete protection
we have been led to believe. Condoms DO NOT seem to make
sex safe enough!
From a spiritual (soul ties) perspective, condoms offer
no protection - see Virginity
The only absolute protection and best "big picture" deal
is to decide not to have sex before you are married.
Caution - this decision will take courage!
Where do you want your life to go? Don't rely on chance.
Be deliberate - you can stack the circumstances in your
favor for a full and successful life.
