You and other Ready for action

You’re in love! That’s awesome! In a relationship, we tend to abandon ourselves to the happiness we’re feeling, and the trust we have in the other person. But it’s important to be honest about the type of relationship you want. Will you be exclusive when it comes to sex? Will you be an open couple who sometimes have sex with other partners together? Or maybe you want a totally open relationship where you sometimes or often have sex with other people? Whatever you end up choosing, it’s recommended that both of you plan to get tested one to four times a year, as part of your normal health routines.   If you’d like, we can send you a reminder by text or email when it’s time to make an appointment at a testing centre.

Lots of men have fuck friends, meaning a regular sexual partner who isn’t their boyfriend. The sex is good and both partners feel free to let loose.

You’re in a relationship and you regularly sleep with other people. Being in an open relationship always carries higher risk of HIV and other STBBIs. To avoid the transmission of HIV or any other STBBIs, it’s recommended that you use a condom – with all your partners. You and your boyfriend should get tested regularly. Same goes if you use a condom with your other partners, but not your boyfriend. It’s important to remember that if you don’t use a condom with your boyfriend or your partners, the risk of contracting HIV and other STBBIs is high. If you aren’t using condoms it’s extra important to get tested regularly.   If you’d like, we can send you a reminder by text or email when it’s time to make an appointment at a testing centre.
