Lets Talk About Sex Baby

LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX BABY 

WHAT IS SAFE SEX?

Sex can be HOT and FUN with pleasure but there are risks involved:

  • STI’s
  • Unplanned pregnancy
  • Reduced self esteem
  • Sexual violence

Safe sex involves communication with your partner. Before you have, sex talk with your partner about intimacy. Considering what you like and what you do not like is an important conversation. Discuss how you will protect yourselves.

Ask for:

  • A sexual report card (clean bill of health)
  • Get tested (you can do this right at CSUSM Hope & Wellness Center)
  • Get vaccinated (HPV)

Why is sex so hard to talk about?

  • You may be ridiculed
  • You may not be well acquainted with the person
  • You don’t want to kill the “mood”
  • You may not know how to have sex let alone use protection
  • It may be your first time
  • You may feel fear or anxiety
