Safe Sex With A Partner With Shingles
Risky: There are so many stds out there (gonorrhea, syphilis, hiv, herpes, hepatitis, genital warts, chlamydia etc), that it is tantamount to playing russian roulette if you have unprotected sex with multiple partners.

Is there any way to have safe sex without using condom or anythng else? I and my partner are 20 and 19 years respectively

The biological purpose of sex is to create offspring, so naturally, there is no safe "natural" way to avoid getting pregnant. A couple can be safe from STD diseases if neither person has HIV, nor has had sex with another person. ...Read more
