    Do you worry about getting a STD? Other than not having sex, how do you protect yourself from a STD?

    Unless, of course, that partner has an STD. In which case, you've just set yourself up for a life time of chances of catching it.

    Practice safe sex: use a padded headboard. LOL.
    Other than that, just do whatever you can to prevent an STD. If you still get one, that's just nature's way of saying "researchers aren't perfect." If you live your life in fear of what COULD happen, you'll never be able to enjoy the things that DO happen. (of course, that comes from the mouth of an adventurous risk-taker...)

    Ummm... sex? Lessee if I remember that... icon_confused.gificon_lol.gif

    Seriously, condoms... always condoms. It might not be 100%, and I know first hand that they do break, but its the best protection we have outside of no sex. And believe me... no sex is no fun! icon_rolleyes.gif

    You can live in fear of what might happen, or you can educate yourself on the risks and protect yourself as much as you can, every time, with every partner.

    If you do choose the no sex route, don't substitute with chocolate. You'll get fat. Instead, consider masturbation with an astringent, antiseptic soap for lubrication.

    What GC Jock said...use condoms always....but the second part of his advice is difficult...because someone you think youve chosen wisely...may turn out to be a HUGE mistake...so the moral of that story is...dont be quick to jump in the sack...wait until you know them before you have big boy sex...the "choosing wisely" factor goes up then....

    I would have a "golden rule" in place according to your own comfort level and requirements. If you date, you follow a certain course of action and don't deviate no matter how hot the guy is. Always condoms and don't fall for bs. Agree with muscjockatl above.

    I'm increasingly hearing the use of STIs ("I" being infection), at least on Dan Savage's podcast and some other parts. Here's some light reading:

    This might not work with other people. But it work with me and most of my sexual partner since I dont do anal sex anymore.

    Lubricate the areas below your ball , you know between your leg and your partner penis. With the correct squeeze and pelvis movement it feel like a real thing. I prefer this bareback outside penetration over fucking in the ass with condom on. Where do I learn this?, from some old sexual instruction manual book on how to have sex with a wife who is having her period. Be creative, like missionary, he on top of you and you on your back , spooning , even standing (maybe I should write a sexual position manual). I have done the top and the bottom. I know some guy who enjoy being bottom will find it not so enjoyable because it didnt hit certain sport in the ass. But it sure work for me.

    Not sure , how safe it is though. But since the semen spill on your outer skin, I guess the risk is greatly reduce. Of course you have a messy bed spread, but that better that getting STD or even worse HIV.

    Unfortunately, that method doesn't protect you from herpes and/or genital warts, as they can be passed from contact like you described.

    And although they're more of an inconvenience than a health issue, there are always pubic lice ("crabs") to worry about.

    Xanadude,

    Genital wart and herpes is not fatal disease isnt it?.And there cure available for it in comparison to HIV AIDS, right. if I am gonna be worry with every little disease in this world I mere else well be celibate. I dont think is even safe to kiss somebody , because you might catch some flu or other treatable disease. I am human being , with lustful desire, getting horny and etc. All I can do is reducing the risk and I have done that. Frankly, I dont really enjoy using condom. Just like they say it, TAKING A SHOWER WITH A RAINCOAT ON. Admit it , most of us prefer the skin to skin contact while we are having sex. But with HIV out there ,is just something we have to live with to protect ourself. Anal sex is the riskiest sexual act you can do. Even condom can break. I have sex with a lot of men , with those method above and really it feel as good as anal sex.

    Please dont get me wrong. I really think condom is a MUST for every gay sexual encouters involving anal penetration. But we human being are creative and we can use our imagination to enjoy ourself while keeping ourself safe.

    Education time:

    Genital warts are contagious, treatable, will not kill you, and for all intensive purposes can be "cured." If you have sexual contact with a partner that has genital warts, you have a 75% chance of being infected with symptoms appearing within three months. No single treatment is effective in eliminating warts and preventing them from coming back. However, if the warts are removed, the "cure" rates can be up to 91%.

    Genital herpes is contagious and treatable, but there is no cure. It will not kill you, but you may be taking medicine for the rest of your life to control outbreaks and reduce risks of spreading the virus. The virus can be spread even if the infected partner does not show signs/symptoms or have knowledge that he has herpes. Condoms are little protection against herpes. As many as 80% of those infected do not know they have herpes because they show no symptoms; however, they unknowingly spread the virus. If there is to be outward signs of herpes on you, they tend to develop within 3-7 days of skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. Unlike many other STDs that are curable, herpes is a life-long problem. Because of the permanent significance of the problem, if you contract herpes it is your responsibility to be a MAN and inform your past sex partner(s) of your development so that they may recognize potential symptoms. It will not be pleasant to communicate the fact, but it is your responsibility on a human level.

    OK, education time is over.

    As a personal opinion, I believe that we should all enjoy life and LIVE! Yes, play and enjoy your body and time on this earth. That does NOT mean to act sexually without responsibility or reason, but enjoy yourself! If you are active, you should mentally prepare yourself that you will get an STD. It's just gonna happen! Hope that it is a "curable" STD, and always take precautions to reduce risks.

    Its pretty normal to be scared the first time. Most of the time, people are pretty classy about it...for my first test, I went to Planned Parenthood, not knowing they were a Christian group. lol. None of the staff or nurses had a problem with the fact I was sexually active with men, and were professional and frank. Pretty soon its gonna be another routine, just like the dentists icon_wink.gif

    In my world (i color it whatever i want), i choose one man and let loose! He is all i need. I know there are no guarantees (have been burned before) but as of today, i have no reason to not trust him and he claims that i am all he needs. Do i worry about HPV that he or i might have brought to this relationship or HSV for that matter? Sure, but i do not dwell on it. BTW - it helps that we are both not in our 20s - been there done that.
    That is how I deal with STDs in this day and age.

    You are correct! It has been changed to STI's, but people haven't accepted the new name yet and are still calling it STD's.
