In brief: Safe is relative
Condoms and inspecting your partners stuff does not equate to being safe enough to prevent syphillus.
For that disease you are truely exposed to every partner your partner has had sex with. Only avoiding contact with an infected partner prevents transmission. The best setting is only sharing sex with one partner who has never shared it before.
