Dating, relationships and sex

Just as there are different forms of sex, there are also different kinds of ways of relating to the men you have sex with. For example, you might 

  • be single
  • be in a relationship
  • live together with your steady partner
  • be in an open relationship
  • have a number of different fuck buddies
  • have sex with men only in darkrooms or outdoor cruising areas.

Each way of relating to your sex partner is different, and regardless of which form applies in your case, there are a number of things that you can keep in mind to keep sex safe and healthy.

Communication plays an important role in that respect. By talking together about what you most enjoy doing, but also by being clear about whether you or your sex partner has HIV, you can make better choices during sex.
