I gave you head and you gave me herpes.(The importance of safe-lesbian-sex)

I know what you’re thinking, “Gross,” “I’m a lesbian I can’t get anything,” or “Only men are susceptible to disease or passing diseases.” Well, none of this is true, and I feel that it is important to be aware of what is out there and what could harm you, even if you never have sex with a man. Lesbian sex can be just as dangerous, but if you protect yourself and your partner then you will be on a road to safe and sexy sex.

Besides the fact that lesbian sex is hot, there are women out there who do it just for fun or for their man, watch for these girls, they are at a higher risk for passing something along to you because they have sex with men. It is easier for men and women to pass STD’s or HIV through heterosexual activity. If you just meet somebody you should always protect yourself, using dental dam, which is basically a mouth condom that is used to cover the mouth and prevent disease spreading through oral sex. In my opinion, you should always use a condom or dental dam of sorts with partners until you are in that monogamous, committed relationship, and tested which is never 100%.

Safe sex for lesbians is when the active women are at no risk of receiving or passing an STD or HIV. Ways to lower the risk of contracting an STD would be to not share toys unless they are sanitized properly, do not pass any bodily fluids between each other, make sure your partner does not inject or do drugs (and don’t share needles), avoid having unsafe sex with men, think it over about sperm donation or insemination unless from a legit sperm bank, and avoiding rough sex or sex that could cause cuts, bleeding or bruising around or inside the vagina.

Contracting diseases such as herpes, thrush, pubic lice/crabs, syphilis, Chlamydia, bacterial diseases, genital warts, hepatitis and others, can be prevented with proper protocol, such as washing hands, using protection, and getting tested. Most places that provide testing to straight people will also provide the GLBT community with the same treatment. There are also places that cater to the GLBT community in forms of HIV/AIDS testing as well as other forms of test.
