Sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBIs, sometimes called STIs or STDs) are quite common. Many of us have or will experience getting an STBBI during our lifetime. They can be spread through vaginal, oral or anal sex, as well as by sharing sex toys. Armed with all of the facts, it’s easier to have the sex you want and take good care of your sexual health!
Some STBBIs are spread through body fluids (blood, vaginal fluid, semen/cum, pre-cum and saliva) while others are spread through skin to skin contact (like rubbing your genitals against another person’s genitals). Some STBBIs can also be transmitted through non-sexual activities such as sharing needles.
