What young people think about safe sex


majority Did you know that the vast majority of young people learn about sexual matters and HIV through their friends? Source: UNICEF


"Can condoms prevent all STDs?"

"No. Using condoms decreases your risk of getting HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis. Since condoms don’t cover all skin surfaces they are less likely to protect you from diseases spread by skin-to-skin contact (e.g. Herpes, Genital Warts)."

"Can fingering or a hand job lead to pregnancy or an STD?"

"There’s almost no risk of pregnancy from fingering or hand jobs. If a person has dirty hands and touches another person’s genitals, they can spread germs or bacteria. It’s possible, but not likely, to spread a sexually transmitted disease (STD) this way. However, there’s a very small chance of starting a pregnancy if semen gets on one partner’s finger and that finger is put immediately into the vagina. It’s a good idea to wash hands before and after any sexual contact."

"Can I get a sexually transmitted disease (STD), including HIV from kissing?"

"No, the amount of virus transmitted through saliva in a kiss, is too little to infect someone else with HIV. BUT; if there are open sores in both mouths and blood is coming out, then there is a chance of HIV transmission."
