Experts warn that there is no such thing as “safe sex” because any sexual activity (vaginal, oral, anal sex or genital contact without penetration) puts you at risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The only way to be 100% sure that you are protected is to practice complete abstinence. refrain from any sexual activity. But there is also the concept of “safer sex”, which is defined as the sexual activity of people who have taken measures to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases. The idea is that simple strategies can increase security without sacrificing sex life.

The safest protection against sexually transmitted diseases is the use of a condom. Use a condom for every type of sex. Always use a condom, especially if you are with a partner you do not know well enough and you are not sure does not have STDs. Some diseases, such as HPV (human papilloma virus) and genital herpes, can be spread by a person consciously or unconsciously, although no symptoms are present. A condom is an effective way to protect yourself, but remember that it does not offer 100% protection. Use a condom during vaginal, anal and oral sex.
Of course, if you often have sex with different partners, you should not accept sexual intercourse without using a condom. Young people in particular need to be aware of this because they do not realize the seriousness of sexually transmitted diseases. Using a condom is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your partner.
California could be the first country in the United States to consider condom removal or stealthing illegal if there is no verbal consent from a partner. This is a bill because current law does not cover this act in California. The adoption of this draft law is pending. If this bill is passed, this could allow those who have faced such an act, without their consent to have their condom removed by their partner, to be able to sue the perpetrators for emotional and physical harm. This was advocated by Cristina Garcia, who herself gave this bill. She believes that this act is illegal and that those individuals who have faced it should be given help and taught how to get out of it all.

This law proposal has encountered several shortcomings, the US Department of Justice has talked about the ambiguity of what behavior is considered sexual assault, whether those who survived such an act are considered victims of crime and how data will be collected about the crime. They were worried that the number of prisoners would increase. The Ministry of Justice considered that the introduction of such a law was risky due to the facts that are necessary to combat sexual assault. Several professors, lawyers, etc. have given their opinion on this bill. Most agreed that the act was a kind of psychological trauma similar to that experienced by rape victims. They say it is a violation of someone’s autonomy, however there is a risk of unwanted pregnancy and testify to the words of women who have experienced stealthing as a feeling of rape. They explain that these people suffer trauma and feel distrustful of their partner or partners who will come in the future.
