What is safe sex?
Safe sexual intercourse may carry some risk but it is much better than taking no precaution at all. Simply stated, safe sex means not allowing your partner’s semen or vaginal secretions to get into your vagina, anus, penis or mouth. It can also mean avoiding genital skin-to-skin contact as some sexually transmitted infections spread through direct skin contact. Sex can be protected with every encounter and includes:
- Oral sex with a condom, dental dam, or plastic wrap
- Vaginal sex with male or female condom
- Anal sex with male or female condom
What is the need of having safe sex?
Sex is known to have a positive impact on health. Safe sex with an ideal partner can help you get the following benefits:
- Improve stress response and blood pressure:
- Build your immunity with sex:
- Acts as a pain reliever:
- Lower risk of prostate cancer:
Sex has the power to take the edge off and transport you into another world. The process of arousal and orgasm allows you to experience the apex of your feelings. The whole process is capable of removing your daily life stresses and it also initiates the release of oxytocin which can help lower blood pressure and heart rate. So it’s not only good for your organ down there, but also for your heart!
A study by Wilkes University suggests that regular sex may offer a surge in immunity potency.
Sex can offer a temporary respite from symptoms of conditions that cause pain. Both arousal and orgasm release oxytocin, which then initiates a sensational rush of endorphins and corticosteroids, both of which are potent pain killers.
Frequent ejaculation has been linked with a slightly lower risk for prostate cancer in later life. According to research, in its efforts to concentrate minerals and other necessary substances from the blood to make semen, the prostate can end up collecting a concentration of toxins as well. Releasing the semen along with the said toxins, flushes the system of said impurities.
