I know you probably get this question a lot but I'm sick of reading health websites and want to hear it from an actual person. So basically I'm seeing a guy that I have no intention of dating and just want to sleep with. I haven't been with anyone since I got it and only slept with three before it. But it's been way too long and I'm tired of holding out because I'm scared to tell someone. Can you give me a rundown on how to tell someone you purely want to sleep with? Sorry if that's confusing!

Like any other responsible before sex convo… it should go a little something like this.

"Hey, I’d really like to rip your clothes off and make you cum until you cry, but I wanted to let you know I have herpes. I’m on suppressive medication which cuts down on my out breaks and as long as we use a condom there’s a 2% chance of it spreading to you."

When was the last time you’ve been tested?

Do you have any STD’s that I should be aware of?”

Responsible is the new sexy.

(one) guy's perspective on herpes

Living with herpes.  Man, that’s a tough one.  Sometimes, it is the most inconsequential part of my life.  I practically forget that I have it, because doesn’t make too many guest appearances.  

Then, one day you wake up and your back and testicles have this dull ache in them, like you got punched in the kidneys the day before and you know the storm, it’s a-comin’.  Only, even then, it’s not the worst thing in the world.  A couple sores that resemble pimples.  They just last a little longer and end up itching.  No big deal.  

I have had this for over three years and I can honestly say that the most embarassing/painful/shitty part is the stigma.  The worry that no one will ever be able to get past that with you in pursuing a new relationship.  That your friends & family will find out.  That your life is over.  I am here to tell you that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND EVERYTHING WILL BE OK.  Sure, I still get depressed sometimes over it and it is incredibly easy to feel like damaged goods.  An STD means you’re a slut and a stupid one, at that, right?  WRONG.  An STD just means “shit happens.”  Honestly, think of how much worse it could have been!

As for the relationship thing, it might be the best thing that ever happened to you.  It’s an immediate litmus test for weeding out people that aren’t worth your time.  I won’t tell you it isn’t scary telling people about HSV and waiting for their response.  It’s terrifying.  But like anything, it gets easier with time.  Plus, you learn to love yourself.  You take better care of your body.  You eat healthier.  You learn that you don’t need anyone else to feel complete.  You learn that if someone immediately decides not to be with you as a result of this, their feelings were not reciprocated and they would have bailed eventually anyways.  I have been single for six months and have grown by leaps and bounds since then.  I appreciate myself in a way that I never did before.  

I feel like I’ve started rambling and lost my train of thought.  So, I will end with this:  You are not damaged goods.  You have value.  You are beautiful and everything will be ok.  And if you ever need to talk, my inbox is here.  Have a great day/night/life!

Can you get pregnant from semen in your mouth?

Someone asked us

Can u get pregent from sperm in ur mouth

Nope! You can’t get pregnant from having sperm in your mouth. And this is true whether you spit or swallow. You can, however, get an STD from giving or receiving oral sex, even if sperm isn’t involved at all. So make sure you’re using condoms and/or dental dams if you’re diving down under. And read up here on how pregnancy happens so we can wipe out myths like this one for good.

LISTEN THE FUCK UP.

IF YOU HAVE AN STD, IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT.

SHIT HAPPENS AND NO ONE DESERVES IT.

YOU GOTTA OWN IT AND BE YOURSELF REGARDLESS.

BE HONEST WITH PEOPLE AND IF THEY DON’T WANT TO BE WITH YOU FOR IT THEN FUCK THEM, BECAUSE THEY AREN’T THE ONE FOR YOU.

IF THEY DO THEN THEY’RE AWESOME PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE CHERISHED BECAUSE THEY KNOW ULTIMATELY IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE THERE ARE WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF.

TO PEOPLE WHO SHAME OTHERS OR MAKE FUN OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE STD’S:

SUCK MY ASS.

STD’S DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AND IT LITERALLY ANYONE COULD GET ONE. 

I GOT ONE AND YEAH, IT FUCKING SUCKS BUT IT DOESN’T DEFINE ME.

YOUR STD DOES NOT DEFINE YOU, BEAUTIFUL MOTHERFUCKERS.

SO GET THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR ROOM, PUT ON SOME PANTS AND LIVE YOUR LIFE BECAUSE HAVING AN STD IS NOT THE END OF THE UNIVERSE. 

this has been a PSA

"I thought a thing like that could never happen to me…"

From a 1950s campaign aiming to bust the “nice girls don’t get VD” myth.

While most WWII and earlier public service posters focused on the “don’t get diseases from prostitutes” side of things, after the war ended, there were a growing number of men and women who weren’t servicemembers or engaged in the sex trade who were coming down with STDs.

These days, syphilis is fairly uncommon. About 3500 cases are recorded per year in the US (mostly men who have sex with men), and during the primary stage, it’s easily treatable with antibiotics.

Gonorrhea, though? Still going strong. Because of the continuously significant rate of infection over the years, there has been enough antibiotic treatment going on to create antibiotic-resistant Super Gonorrhea. It’s a bad thing. Like all gonorrhea, it can cause permanent damage and sterility in all genders, but it’s extremely difficult to treat.

Wrap it before you tap it. Don’t get you some Super STDs.

Cool Down Coconut Glitter  Stick.

Beware: You’re going to want to kiss me more than you already do now.

Here is what you need.

  • Coconut oil
  • small Jar
  • Tea tree oil
  • spoon
  • freezer

You’re going to spoon the coconut oil in the small jar, then microwave it for 20 seconds. When the oil melts, add 4 drops of tea tree oil. 


After it’s mixed up throw it in the freezer for a hour or so.

After it freezes you should be able to take the coconut oil out

Like so,

And you can apply generously to your glitter attack.

This is like a coconut oil/ ice pack combo. It will feel soothing as fuck, and the tea tree oil will help cut down your breakout time.

(be sure to put it back in the freezer when you’re done)

This is great for

  1. Breakouts
  2. After shaving
  3. After vigorous sex
  4. During vigorous sex
  5. and It’s also great for sunburns

Taking you pussy from drab to fab in no time.

Let me know how you like it!

The most common STI in the United States is HPV. The CDC reports that there are currently about 79 million people in the U.S infected with the STI and about 14 million new people get infected every year. There are more than 100 types of HPV that can affect someone, and about 40 that can affect the genitals. Although, HPV is not typically a deadly infection it can lead to cervical cancer and certain other genital and throat cancers. HPV can be spread though oral, anal, and vaginal sex. HPV is a very common STI and nearly all sexually active people with get it at some point in their lives. However, it is a serious infection that should be treated early on. It is also important for people to consistently get Pap Smears and get tested for other STIs as the earlier it is diagnosed, the better the outcome will be.

Can aids be transferred only between (dmab) man/man and (dmab/dfab) woman/man?

HIV/AIDS can be transferred between any two people, DMAB to DMAB, DFAB to DMAB, DFAB to DFAB, etc.  It is transferred through bodily fluids:

  • Blood
  • Semen (cum)
  • Pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum)
  • Rectal fluids
  • Vaginal fluids
  • Breastmilk

Any two people who transfer bodily fluids can transfer HIV between them. That could include:

  • A health care professional accidentally exposed to a patient’s blood
  • A child breastfeeding from its parent
  • Two people having sex in which vaginal fluid, rectal fluid, or semen is exchanged
  • Two people sharing the same needles to inject drugs
  • Someone who has received donated blood or organs from another human
  • And other situations

You CANNOT get HIV by:

  • Standing near, breathing the same air as, shaking hands with, or hugging someone with HIV
  • Mosquito or other insect bite
  • Saliva, tears, or sweat - so it’s fine to kiss someone with HIV as long as both of you do not have open, bloody sores in your mouths
  • Drinking fountains, public transportation
  • Toilet seats

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, and AIDS is the disease that virus causes.  It stands for Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome, and it happens in the late stages of HIV.

I highly suggest all of you go to AIDS.gov and poke around a bit. It’s super easy to read and explains SO MUCH.  Enjoy!
