Old Folks Have Sex Too

Most times if not all times, safe sex messages are tailored and directed towards younger people. That is so biased though I mean aren’t ‘older folks having sex too?  😐 The fact is, ALL sexually active people of regardless of age should be aware and be encouraged to engage in and practice safe sex. Safe sex is about taking precautions regardless of your sexual preferences. Sexual intercourse between those of the opposite sex could lead to an unintended pregnancy; and sexual contact of any sort can potentiously lead to the contraction and spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Safe sex is an essential commodity to avoiding such unwanted and often times unforeseen consequences or circumstances. And let’s just say safe sex begins in the mind, before you’re anywhere near ready to have sex.

The ‘natural’ outcome of engaging in unprotected sex can be deemed as pregnancy, right? So one should be in the know about condoms along with other contraceptive methods. I mean let’s face it, a condom may not be in the forefront of your brain if you’re in the heat of passion with your partner, especially in the case where you’re both partially or fully undressed – BIRTHDAY SUIT! Contraception isn’t difficult but it does takes some planning and commitment . The most reliable method of preventing pregnancy is celibacy!  But just incase you feel you just MUST have sexr visit a doctor or family planning clinic. Others necessitate is at least a trip to the drugstore – postinor 2, always available!

Don’t ever feel threatened to do what your partner wants, if he loves and wants what is best for BOTH of you he would never try to guilt you into unprotected sex. See that right there is NOT a good trait of a man to be the father of your children. So yes you may love his ass but if you are absolutely, positively sure you do not want to make a baby, then don’t have sexual intercourse — be abstinent!  Do not go on a guilt trip and mess up your track!

The ‘alphabeth disease’ and those of it’s kind also comes into play. Even if you guard against pregnancy, you still run the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection. In fact, some contraceptive methods don’t offer any protection against STIs. The condom is really the ONLY two in one method of birth control and disease control although it’s not the most effective method of birth control. So you may have to use two types of contraceptive to maximize the effect.

Sounds tedious right? Can arguable say this is why so many people just don’t bother to use any form of protection, like most times. As a result this has contributed to being one of the reasons why there are so many unintended pregnancies and why STIs are so rampant amongst us. But let me urge you in saying that if you’re going to engage in sexual intercourse, please make the effort to learn how to prevent the circumstances you have no desire to succumb to.

Having intercourse has three potential outcomes: causing pleasure, contracting an STI and making babies. You will have moments in your life when you’ll want to combine two of those three being pleaseure and baby making. But most of the time you’re going to want pleasure without babies and most definitely you would never want an STI. That’s where safe sex comes in. And the less worried you are about causing an unintended pregnancy or risking an infection, the more you’ll enjoy sex — sort of a two-for-the-price-of-one deal. This also works the other way, so if you opt to have sex without using contraception, and you don’t want to get pregnant or contract an STI, you’ll enjoy sex a lot less. Safe sex has never subtracted from the pleasure of sex shun that myth about condoms makes it feel less enjoyable.
