    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Cannot Understand Why
