Safe sex always has the consent of both parties and will endeavour to consider highly the opinions of any of the parties if not both.
Safe sex reduces the chances of acquiring an STD/STI/HIV and is always pleasurable and exciting. Safe sex could be hugging, cuddling, kissing, foreplay and if the desire can not be controlled, condoms or other contraceptive methods are used.
Practicing Safe Sex
This is when you and your partner agree on having protected sex either by using a condom (which the cheapest and easiest or access) or any other contraceptive method.
Practicing safe sex starts at the very beginning of the relationship where both partners get to discuss when to start having sex, how and with what protection methods to use to prevent unwanted pregnancies and acquiring STDs/STIs/HIV.
