Does pre-cum spread STDs?

Someone asked us:

can you get a std from pre cum?

Absotoodlelutely.  Any STD that’s spread through sexual fluids (like semen and vaginal secretions) can also be spread through pre-cum (pre-ejaculate). 

Also, remember that there are a few STDs that are spread through skin-to-skin contact, even if no fluids are present.

To protect yourself against STDs, use a condom from beginning to end, every time you have sex.

Talking about STDs with a partner—whether about getting tested, getting treated or hearing that your partner has an STD—can be difficult. But we know teens are having these conversations every day. And we know that other teens want to hear how you’ve navigated these tough conversations.

Have you ever tested positive for an STD and had to tell a partner? Has a partner ever told you that he or she has an STD? What was it like for you getting tested or treated for an STD? What would you want other teens to know?

If you have a story about STDs, testing and talking with a partner, we want to hear from you! Send us a short paragraph describing your experience along with your name, age and location to sexetc@rci.rutgers.edu. One of our writers may quote you in a story or we may ask you to write about your experience on Sexetc.org!

P.S. While we need to know your real name and information, all stories can be published under a fake name to protect your privacy.

What situations do you think kids 8-12 need to be aware of and prepared for regarding sexual abuse, sexual harassment, relationship abuse, other types of abuse, STIs, HIV/AIDS, and contraception?

What do kids this age need to know about these subjects?

Continuation to the Conversation topic:

What is bad about having an illness, sickness, condition, or disease?

Let’s get deep here people! “Why someone wouldn’t want to have an STD” may seem like a ridiculous question but let’s really think about it. What things do you hear about STDs or about illnesses and conditions make you not want to have them? Where do these messages come from? What are your personal experiences with illness and how might that affect your feelings about having STDs/STIs?

Life Expectancy for Young People With HIV Is Nearly NormalFrom 2000 to 2002, the life expectancy for an HIV-positive 20-year-old in the United States was about 56 years. But over less than a decade, the figure jumped nearly 15 years, meaning that many HIV positive youths, if treated and connected to care can live well into their 70s.

Just think about what we could accomplish if we worked more on promoting sex education, safer sex methods, and more STI testing!

Myth or Fact

masakhane:

Anal intercourse is a risk-free way for women to avoid becoming pregnant. 

Myth engaging in anal intercourse is  one of the easiest ways to spread HIV infection and some other STDs. Because the anus is not as elastic as the vagina and is not lubricated, it can tear more easily, allowing viruses and bacteria to be transmitted directly to the blood of a partner. It is possible for a female to become pregnant from anal sex if semen from the male’s ejaculation seeps out and gets into the opening of her vagina. This is why it is very important to always use lubricated condoms when engaging in anal sex.

Five Best Condoms For Anal Sex

The FDA currently considers anal sex very dangerous— so dangerous, in fact, that they won’t approve any condoms for anal usage. The call has gone out for a better anal condom, but so far, nothing is available for…

I grant you STD’s but back in the day when I was in school, condoms were enough.  Proper lubrication, preparation, and protection and you were able to engage in the act.  Called it safer sex.  No sex was ever truly safe, but using a condom was ‘safer’ than not using one, but at least back then they encouraged the use of condoms for such a high risk activity.  This was back in the late eighties, early nineties.  But now you’re saying that no condom is good enough for anal sex and it shouldn’t be done without protection, and there is no protection because condoms don’t protect.  There are politics behind this, especially considering the current political attitude regarding the stereotypical anal sex practitioner.  Be Safe, Kids.  Wear a condom when you have sex. 

I agree that it’s ridiculous the FDA considers it dangerous even with condoms. I think that has to do with our lack of sex education. People just don’t know to use and how to use lube or to go slow. That’s why one of my most popular posts is the Beginner’s Guide to Anal Play.

I agree that part of the reason we have our lack of sex education and anti-sex attitude is heterosexism and monosexism. I misunderstood your original reblog in that you were saying that the claim that anal sex was more dangerous was wrong, I didn’t realize you meant the claim that there were no safe condoms (I agree with you on that, which is why I post so much on safer anal play and different condoms to use).
