we were conditioned by the tv, school and of course our family's that you should not be with multiple partners because you will catch herpes, hiv, ect. but in your experience in life, do you find that to be true ?

You can catch an Std even with 1 partner so.... Practice safe sex regardless of partner count otherwise you're in for a nasty surprise!

Herpes, HPV, clamidia......yes


HIV........[Mod cut.]. While you can get it from vaginal sex, the chances are low regardless of what we were taught in school. The same goes for getting a girl prego while correctly using the withdrawal method.

I'll get flamed for saying this, but the numbers don't lie.

Even if the odds were low... Why take a chance when it's easy to take steps to help prevent them?

Why would any rational person who cares about their health take any chances?
