Safer sex

Safer sex means looking after your and your partner's health and emotional wellbeing. It means being respectful, consensual, talking, and listening.

Safer sex is pleasurable. It reduces the risk of an unplanned pregnancy or passing on any sexually transmitted infections (STI).

Using a condom every time you have sex is the best way to protect yourself from getting or passing on an STI.
