Safer sex - for teens

safer; sex; ;

Safer sex means sexual contact that:

  • shows respect
  • is pleasurable
  • is freely consented to by both partners
  • reduces the risk of passing on any infections
  • reduces the risk of an unwanted pregnancy
  • is safe emotionally.

Sex is never an obligation – each partner has the right to say no. If a partner asks you to stop you must respect this.

These sites have topics which will give you information about safer sex
