Girlish Gab on Safe Sex by Geneva Thomas (Sasha Bruce P.O.W.E.R. Program)

safety first1Having safe sex is so important. When you don’t practice safer sex it’s like playing Russian roulette with your life. It only takes one wrong decision and one good feeling to become a victim of an STD, and or the incurable STDs known as the four H’s (HIV, Hepatitis, Herpes or Human papillomavirus) and so much more. To all my, “I got this” or “my partner good, which means I’m good” people, please stop and think that diseases don’t come with a name or face. If you are sexually active go get tested and encourage your partner to get tested as well. Just because you are having sex with one person, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Getting tested should be just as important as making good grades in school, paying a bill, or even getting fresh. When you are in a relationship it’s very important to have an open line of communication with each other. By having unprotected sex and not getting tested is not the smartest choice because you could contract an STD, have no symptoms and live with it not knowing you have it.
