are there STDs that lesbians have a higher chance of giving to each other? how can lesbians have safer sex?
Anyone who has sex with another person is at risk of getting a sexually transmitted infection. A gay person’s chance of infection is no different from a straight person’s. Gay, straight, or somewhere in between, it’s important to practice safer sex.
Compared to vaginal and anal intercourse, oral sex is less risky, but there’s still a risk of infection. To further reduce the risk of infection during oral sex, use a Sheer Glyde dam, cut-open condom, or plastic wrap to cover the vulva or anus.
