Is safe sex becoming less relevant for college students?

Editorial Staff

For many of us college years are full of excitement and adventure.  As we improve our intellectual capacity, align our goals and aspirations, we are also inevitably exploring our sexuality.  While we’ve heard enough on safe sex from the media, parents and everyone else but the statistics behind practicing safe sex are disappointing.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the percentage of American students using condoms hit its peak at around 60% a decade ago, and has been declining ever since.  A recent study released by the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada found that nearly 50% of sexually active college students aren’t using condoms.  No matter what your sexual preference is, practicing SAFE SEX is a prudent and healthy choice for both you and your partner(s). After all, who wants to stress about getting a sexually transmitted disease or an unwanted pregnancy?

Both guys and gals have the responsibility to protect themselves.  Guys in general will use a condom that will prevent the transfer of sperm and seminal fluid.  Condoms are easy to use, widely available, inexpensive and come in many varieties.  View safer sex products from EroticToyTown here.

For gals, having safe sex is a bit more complicated. There is a wider variety of options to help them practice safe sex and prevent pregnancy. Girls can choose from safe sex items that can be used before, during, or after having sex to prevent pregnancy. Those items include tests that predict ovulation, items that can be used during the sexual act include condoms, spermicides, and latex dental dams. While items that are used after the act are those that prevent fertilization. In general, most items that can be used to ensure safe sex can be bought over-the-counter, do not have side effects, and are inexpensive. But why go to the store and pointlessly wonder the isles when you can order what you need online – it’s easy, fast, and delivered directly to you in a discreet package. The choice is yours if you are going to have sex – BE SAFE!
