December 1st, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection.

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that leads to the disease AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome).

The best thing you can do for you is know your status. If you are HIV negative do everything in your power to remain that way. If you are HIV positive, it is not a death sentence, people are living longer with the virus. Get the proper medical attention, counseling, nutrition and exercise to help fight the virus. Take precaution, protect yourself and others by not spreading the virus.

 Condoms are sold under many brand names. Trojan is one of the popular brands. They come in all sizes from x-small to x-large. Use one each time you have sex. They can protect you if used properly from unwanted pregnancy, HIV virus and other STD's.

 Condoms come in all colors and flavors. If you are allergic to latex condoms, you can use polyurethane. Don't use lambskin condoms as they don't protect against HIV.

 There are female condoms are also available. Using them can sometimes be a pain. You have to make sure to use plenty of lubricant and follow the instructions for proper protection.

 Female condoms don't come in flavors or colors. They are sometimes used by men. (That's another post).

The Dental Dam is a square piece of latex which is also used to provide protection during oral sex.

 The Dental Dam comes in assorted flavors and colors and can purchased at most adult stores. The dams should be used when performing cunnilingus(vaginal oral sex, eating pussy), or during anilingus (anal oral sex, rimming).

 Use finger cots to protect yourself when inserting your finger into the vagina or anus. They can be purchased at your local drug store near the bandages.
 Finger cots protect you and your partner if you have cuts, warts or a rash on your fingers. It is better to use a protected finger when inserted in the vagina looking for the G-spot, and when inserted in a well lubed anus.
 Don't forget to use only water based lubricants when using condoms and sex toys. There are many on the market to choose from.
KY Jelly is a very popular water-based lubricant. Never use baby oil, Vaseline, cooking oil, or olive oil. Oil breaks down the condom and protection is totally compromised.
 Remember STD's  are real. Condoms help protect against Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Such as:
Herpes, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis A,B,&C, Syphilis and HPV. Remember you can't look at someone and tell if they have a disease. Most likely they won't tell you if they are infected. So don't take a chance with your life. Protect yourself!
 My challenge to you is to get tested , know your status and protect yourself.

  1. Man, this post made me uncomfortable!! LOL!!

    Good tips. Down with HIV!!

    Thanks for stopping by my spot Queen.

  2. The best, shortest to the point coverage of protection that I have ever seen.

  3. K. Rock, Down with HIV is right, spread the word about protection when you can. I know you don't have to worry about it because, you are in a monogamous relationship with your husband. That, my friend, is a real blessing.

  4. Lady-Cracker, thanks for stopping by. The spread of HIV can be wiped out with a knowledge and protection. Spread the word.

  5. I got tested earlier this year. I think it's important for all people to have annual physicals to ensure that something we did years ago doesn't come back to bite us on the ass.

    Where are my Magnum XLs?!?
