Can You Have Safe Unprotected Sex?

Updated: Apr 5, 2023

If you're wanting to avoid contracting any STIs, which are sexually transmitted infections, then there's really no other way to spin it: unprotected sex isn't safe. While we have finally stepped into a new day and age where medical advances have allowed for the treatment and prevention of most communicable diseases, the possibility of becoming infected with an STI is vastly higher than it would be, if you were to practice sex with protections.


Here is just a small list of different consequences that you could potentially face, or even transmit to your partner/s, if you neglect to use a condom or other forms of protection.


1. Chlamydia: A bacterial infection that is spread via unprotected sex. It can cause painful burning sensations during urinating, abnormal discharges from the penis or vagina, and pain in the lower abdomen. If left untreated, it can lead to infertility in both men and women.


2. Gonorrhea: A bacterial infection that is spread through unprotected sex. Similar to chlamydia, gonorrhea causes painful burning sensations when you urinate, abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina, and pain in the lower abdomen. Left untreated, it can also lead to infertility in both men and women.


3. HIV/AIDS: An immunodeficiency virus that can be spread through unprotected sex or by blood transfusion with infected blood. It can lead to AIDS, which is a life-threatening condition. HIV can also be passed from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding. It is important to remember that HIV, when treated properly, is not life-threatening and when a person is non-detectable, they cannot transmit the virus. HIV can also spread through needle sharing via drug use.


4. Syphilis: A bacterial infection that is spread through unprotected sex. It can cause a rash, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and other symptoms. If left untreated, it can lead to serious complications, including blindness, paralysis, and even death.


5. HPV: A virus that is spread through unprotected sex. It can cause genital warts and can lead to cervical cancer in women.


6. Unwanted Pregnancy: Unwanted pregnancy is a risk of having unprotected sex. It can lead to emotional and financial stress, as well as health risks for everyone, including the child. Unwanted pregnancy is not a disease, but a complication of unprotected sex that arises when no precautions or steps are taken to prevent it.





We at Elevate Your Kinky are not telling you to avoid unprotected sex, as this goes against our ethos of promoting a shame-free, judgment-free environment, but we also feel obligated to inform our readers of all the various risks and consequences of unprotected sex, and to encourage you to take proper precautions when hooking up.


If you're familiar with the "pull-out method", it is important to remember that seminal fluids are occasionally released during the act, and are a conduit for STI transmission and unwanted pregnancies.


It is also a good idea to know your partners, and have your own screenings up to date as well. Outbreaks can occur at any given moment, and there are plenty of people who carry on with their lives never knowing they might be infected with a serious disease. Always make sure to check your status frequently and communicate with your partners before any sexual activity commences.
