    Cannot Understand Why

    I was just bumming through EP and saw an experience about having an abortion. Suddenly I really wasn't having fun and I clicked on a story, then another, then another. I began to cry from the first story. I absolutely CANNOT understand why people are so careless about birth...

    Keep Your Hat On

    I always make sure I have a condom in my wallet, and always put one when I don't know the woman I'm with too well. I only have had sex one time without a condom, but it wasn't my fault, the girl I was with suddenly took the condom off my ****. It was a really a bad experience...

    "who Cares You Only Live Once," About His Not Getting Checked Out For V.d.

    I had a boyfriend last year for a few months and when it came time for us to be together we were protected...on my insistence.  The next time I was checking him out with my hand if you know what I mean and felt a bump!  He tried to pawn it off as a scar he had for years and...

    Two Minutes, Tops

    I hate comdoms, but I know how effective they are. For a long time, I had a girlfriend that was on the pill and we ****** all the time without putting one on. We never had a pregnancy scare (none I knew of anyway) and we didn't have to stop to wrap my **** in a piece of nearly...

    Just Do It

    Protection isn't just to prevent pregnancy, it also helps to prevent getting an STD. Protection during sex is a matter of protecting yourself and every aspect of your life. I'm well aware of the fact that birth control isn't 100% and that's all the more reason to take precaution...

    Condoms, Pills,rings, Shots, Diaphrams I Don't Care Take Your Pick.

    Not only does protection protect you from disease and infection, but can also protect you from having a child. I KNOW you know...so why am I telling you this? Well because I think people focus way too much on only one of the benefits of contraception either to prevent pregnancy...

    Im Pretty Shore My Father Didn't Want Me To Be Born

    Im not mad at him (even though technically I should) because he never did anything bad to me, but I know that because he never cared about my existence, he never wanted me to be born. Seriously dude, would wearing a condom with my mother be THAT bad? I mean yeah, I wouldn't exist...

    I would rather someone be honest with me than lie because they don't want to admit the truth. In the end that would hurt less.
