Safety Over Comfort: Condoms For STD Prevention

Like it or not, one's sexual health is just as important as any other aspect of our well-being. And with society becoming more and more sexually permissive, it's only natural that we learn how to protect our sexual health from dwindling.

We're not simply talking about keeping our ability to reproduce here. We're talking about keeping ourselves protected from the many sexually transmitted diseases going around.

For some people, using condoms isn't really an enticing idea because: 1. it decreases the sensation; and 2. wearing a condom feels unnatural for some people.

However, you have to keep in mind that using a condom is the best way to protect against STDs. How do most STDs get passed on? Through flesh and semenal fluid contact. Condoms make sure that there is very little, if any at all, of that.

Seriously, what's a little discomfort if it means that you don't have to worry about contracting a sexually transmitted infection and the shame that comes along with it.

  1. Using condoms during intercourse can really make a difference. Aside from reducing the risk of being infected with STDs, they also help prevent unwanted pregnancies from occuring.
