THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUTERCOURSE

THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUTERCOURSE

THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUTERCOURSEThe only way to ensure that you do not become infected with HIV is to only have sex with yourself.  Even if you have what is considered Safer Sex, you still might contract HIV.  You can only get HIV from another human being who has the virus, the problem is that oftentimes you do not know who does or does not have it.  The virus can be passed through blood, semen (male cum), vaginal secretions (fluid from the vagina), and breast milk.

There have been documented cases of HIV transmission during all forms of sexual intercourse with and without condoms:  this includes oral, anal, and vaginal intercourse.  In order to protect yourself you have to know the risks associated with everything that you do sexually.  Unprotected vaginal and anal sex is ten times more deadly than unprotected oral sex, and according to the Centers for Disease Control, “latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.”

In less than optimal situations or when a condom is not available, if you cannot abstain, you should always opt for a safer form of sexual intercourse; the most protective action is the correct use a lubricated latex condom without spermicide.  If you do not have access to a condom or your partner refuses to wear one opt to: Go Down Right  & Feel Right.

FOR HIM

Each time you put your penis in a woman’s vagina without using a condom, your risk of contracting HIV is 10 times higher than if you had have put your penis in her mouth.

Each time your penis penetrates a woman’s vagina without a condom on, your risk of contracting HIV is 20 times higher than if you had have received oral sex.

Each time you allow a penis to penetrate your anus without a condom on, your risk of contracting HIV is 100 times higher than if you had have simply had oral sex.
