Safer sex practices. Condoms.
      #20046 - 07/31/01 07:01 AM

If so called safer sex practices and condoms really worked the epidemic would have
  peaked and the infection rate would not be out of control.
  For so called safer sex practices to work they have to be used
  every single time. Failure to use them every single time is behind
  the out of control infection rate. The biological imperative is too powerful
  a force in us. Nature designed us in a way that safer sex practices
  require more diligence than is possible for most people.

For heterosexual partners using condoms to prevent pregnancy,
  the pregnancy rate is significant because of failure to use them every single time.

For STD clinic doctors, the STD infection rate is no lower than in the general population
  because the biological imperative is more powerful than education and status.

Getting tested together first before beginning the sexual component of a relationship
  requires less diligence than so called safer sex practices.

Even so, attempting to use safer sex practices and condoms would be still a good idea.
  Getting tested together first before beginning the sexual component of the relationship
  requires perhaps more paranoia about getting sick and dying.
