This is almost exactly how safe I strive to be. With knowledge comes shivers. You want to be able to relax and enjoy sex, but you also want to keep safe! Stay safe y’all!
Yeah, OK, pun intended. Couldn’t help it.
Sexual health — and particularly safer sex skills — are key considerations in any relationship or connections that involve sexual contact. This is true even for monogamous relationships (because most of them are only ostensibly, not actually, monogamous) as well as for nonmonogamous relationships and more casual encounters. And fluid bonding (having barrier-free sex) can significantly increase most serious STI risks — if you don’t handle it consciously at all times.
Fluid bonding is not something that anyone should embark upon cavalierly or by default, not even monogamous people — not if they care about their own health and that of their partners.
