Abstain: Condoms really are the only prevention we can against stds. Both female and male condoms may be used. Otherwise abstinence is the only other thing you can do. Remember there are a variety of condom types, so if they are the issue try changing which type you are using.

Safe ? from what ?: The only truly "safe" sex (no pregnancy, no disease) is no sex or self sex. Once you involve a partner, you bring in risk of pregnancy or STD's.The adage that you indirectly sleep with any partner your partner has ever had is true.Condoms prevent some but not all STD's and pregnancy. The "pull out" method is not BC since sperm leak out continuously during intercourse.

Impossible: Sex with a new partner is risky even with a condom. The potential exposure to disease cannot be eliminated.
