Safer Sex

A fulfilling sexual relationship can help boost good health, but sex and health are also connected in other ways that require serious consideration. The tow major areas of concern are contraception and protection against sexually transmitted diseases, especially AIDS.


AIDS is at present an incurable condition that is usually fatal in the long term. It is transmitted by having unprotected sex with someone who is infected with HIV, the AIDS virus. As there are no immediate symptoms of the disease, AIDS virus. As there are no immediate symptoms of the disease, it is not possible to tell who has already contracted it. This means that unprotected sex with any new partner carries a risk. The only way to be absolutely sure that you do not catch the HIV virus or AIDS is to use a condom every time you have sex. Some couple who do not wish to use a condom decide to take an AIDS test at a clinic for sexually transmitted disease to make sure they are both clear of the virus.

With unprotected sex, you are at risk not only from your present partner, but from each of his or her past four years. If you become infected you can infect your next four years' worth of partners, and any children they might bear, without even knowing it.

A recent survey carried out among young people showed that the majority of sexually active young women had taken responsibility for contraception by being on Pill, but that though they were aware of the danger of AIDS, young people often had sex with anew partner without a condom, particularly if they had been drinking. It is important to remember that AIDS is much more dangerous to your health than pregnancy, and unlike pregnancy, there were no way it can be terminated.


The message is clear : anyone who engages in casual sex or is having sex with a new partner should use a condom even if contraceptive protection is provided by the Pill. Women as well as men are recommended to carry condom with them.


  • Always use a condom

  • Avoid anal sex

  • Don't share toothbrushes, razors or any other instrument that might transfer blood from cuts or abrasions.
