3 SEX Facts You Must Remember

Sex should be exciting, but it should also be safe. Here are a few things to keep in mind every sack session.

1. Oral sex can transmit STDs. If you go down on a guy who has gonorrhea or chlamydia, you'll likely contract it in your throat. And, receiving oral from a man with oral herpes can result in genital herpes. To be safe, before you try anything with a new guy, make sure he's been tested.

2. Sex toys may harbor harmful bacteria. Bacteria that thrive in body fluids can breed on the surface of a toy after it's used, possibly causing an infection the next time you use it. After a steamy session with a sex aid, be sure to wash it with soap to kill microbes.

3. Lots of intercourse in a short time can trigger a UTI. All that thrusting means your man's penis constantly rubs against your urethra, which can propel bacteria into it. Reduce your odds by peeing before and after sex, and taking a break if you feel any discomfort.
