Sexual Health for Valentine's Day! by Teddie Raymond The season of love is a perfect time to become educated and aware of the best practice to maintain a healthy and happy sex-life. Here are some reminders and tips for safe and enjoyable sexual health! 1. Consent is sexy! Consent is always important before and during sexual activity, and doesn't have to be awkward or uncomfortable to talk about. 2. Condoms expire. Old condoms are more prone to breaking or can wear very thin, so it is important to check expiration dates. Getting new condoms should never feel shameful. 3. One works best. Using more than one condom is not as effective. Be sure to stick to using just one. 4. Comfort is key. Sometimes improper fitting of a condom, pain during sex and other types of discomfort occur. It is important to communicate with your partner. You have the right to your own sexual comfort, and the right to say 'stop.' 5. Always get tested for STDs and STIs. Testing is covered by all insurance companies. it's fast, easy and accessible. Know your status!
