Safer Sex Guidelines

Stick to your limits. Don't let alcohol or drugs or an attractive partner make you forget to protect yourself. The Bottom Line HIV infection can occur during sexual activity. Sex is safe only if there is no HIV, no blood or sexual fluids, or no way for HIV to get into the body. You can reduce the risk of infection if you avoid unsafe activities or if you use barriers like condoms. Decide on your limits and stick to them.
