…I didn’t? The last STD post I made referred to a close family member. I feel awkward sharing what she contracted (I feel like it’s too much of an invasion of her privacy), but one was curable with antibiotics and one is not. I had an unrelated, non-sexual health issue recently (which is feeling much better, for those of you who expressed concern and well-wishes).
I’ve been lucky enough to not ever have contracted an STD or STI. (*Knocks on wood.*) My behaviors in my year of college definitely could have led to one; I used condoms often but not every time, and two of them broke. I’ve never had protected oral sex, which probably isn’t the smartest, but transmission of diseases through oral sex is a much smaller risk (the risk is still there, though, so be careful!) (also I imagine facials are much safer, haha). I wasn’t shy about asking people’s sexual histories and the last time they were checked out, and if I had a cut or cold sore in my mouth I wouldn’t perform oral.
Since college, my sexual encounters have been far fewer but much more satisfying. I take more calculated risks now (though I’m still prone to the occasional bout of spontaneity). Also it sounds kind of lame, but there are literally so many ways you can have fun that are low-risk. You can play with toys, do some spanking, mutually masturbate, take photos or videos, hand jobs, finger bangs, bondage, pet play, body writing- the sky’s the limit, especially with a good humiliation slut.
You can be dumb and still be safe!
