Websites with sex and safer sex information.
We each have to decide on the level of risk of sexually transmitted disease that we're willing to take. Some STDs are more dangerous than others, some are more easily transmitted than others. Should we use condoms? Dental dams? Should we always require our partners to be tested before having sex? Which sexual activities are most risky? Which are relatively safe? Various email lists go through periods of vigorous discussion about these issues. Ultimately we each have to find our own comfort level, and communicate about it with our partners. Here are some websites that will help you get the basic information so that you can make your own decision about what works for you.
