There’s a TON of misinformation out there about sex. So here’s some real TRUE info that will increase your knowledge, impress your friends and possibly even keep you from getting an STD or pregnant!

  • Having sex in a bathtub DOES NOT prevent pregnancy. You can still get pregnant.
  • There is no cure or vaccine to prevent HIV. Once you have it, you have it. Condoms are a must to help prevent the spread of HIV.
  • You can buy condoms at any age. There is no age requirement.
  • You DO need a condom even if you’re only having oral sex. Gonorrhea, chlamydia and herpes can be passed this way.
  • Sometimes birth control doesn’t work. If you forget to take a pill one day or get sick and take antibiotics your birth control may not be effective… Another good reason to always use a condom.
  • Condoms can stretch to 18 inches round! Meaning they won’t cut off circulation.
  • Condoms can make some men last longer. This is good news for the both of you!
  • Using TWO methods of birth control is the smartest thing to do. Sometimes birth control doesn’t work and a guys condom AND her birth control (such as pills, depo shot or an IUD) is the only way to go.
  • Using Vaseline on your condom can break it. In fact, any oil based product (such as lotion, hand cream and even lipstick) can tear your condom. Only use water or silicon based lubricants, such as KY Jelly or Astroglide.
  • “Double bagging” or using two condoms at once is a very bad idea. This can actually increase the chances of ripping due to the two of them rubbing together.
