Sex should be fun, enjoyable and pleasurable for both you and your partner.
Having unprotected sex can lead to unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV. Condoms are the best way to prevent this, so it is important that you know how to use them correctly.
If you take alcohol or drugs, be aware that they may cause you to make decisions that you wouldn’t normally make.
If you know how to have safer sex it can make you feel more relaxed and comfortable when having sex.
