Beyond just making us feel happier, close, healthy relationships bring important benefits.
Safe sex, also known as safer sex, is when you have sex with the lowest risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as HIV, herpes, and syphilis. It can make your sex life better by improving communication and trust among you and your partners.
Even though it’s called safe sex, it still carries some risk. But it’s much healthier than sex with no protection at all.
