    So I looked at some of the safe sex links and such. But are there any specifically for same sex relations? Its not really taught in schools, y'know?

    Hey lostamongstarlight,

    I couldn't find anything on this site that's what you're looking for. I can recommend the website http://www.scarleteen.com/ for LGBTQ-inclusive, accurate sexual health information. If there's something in particular you're wondering about, I can find a more specific part of the site for you and/or answer your question based on my personal knowledge.

    Take care,
    glitterbear

    Hello lostamongstarlight,

    I think it’s great that you’re taking some time to educate yourself on safer sex. Any time you have sex (genital,oral,anal…) using a condom is important because they are the only contraceptive that helps to protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Communicating with your partner about safer sex practices, what feels good, and what you expect from the experience can help to make the experience even that much better. I’m going to add to what Glitterbear already left for you with some links to fact sheets and additional resources that you can read over. If you have any questions, let us know!
