Hygiene and contraception
These are the most basic and still neglected aspects of safe sex. Learn how to take proper care for both your genitalia and the rest of your body. Now it may sound weirdly obvious, but many people confuse proper hygiene with frequent showers. Taking baths too often may actually result in skin irritation or even contagious fungal infections.
Adequate contraception is not only important from the birth control point of view but also when it comes to contagious viruses and infections. Make sure that you choose a reliable method of contraception that you feel most comfortable with.
Safe sex is also about respecting each other’s emotions, needs, and boundaries.
