Welcome back to The STI Project’s STD Podcast! Do you remember our podcast from a few years ago? Probably not. I don’t really either. It’s been a long time. So let’s start again by talking about Herpes No Condom or Sex without a Condom…
Are you excited? We are.
This is a question we receive all of the time. Literally, all of the time. And I get it. You’re worried now that you have a long-term STI that you have to wear condoms for the rest of your life. That’s such a miserable idea – not condoms – but that once you contract an infection, which is pretty much inevitable anyways, you have to be sequestered to a certain type of protected sex forever and ever amen. Well, let us be the first to tell you, that’s not necessarily necessary.
What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a Podcast
In an effort to cater to short attention-spans (mainly, my own), we keep these podcasts between 5 and 15 minutes in length. When we have guests on the show, sometimes, they’re a little bit longer, but we know you’re busy. Consequently, we promise to always do our very best to be as concise as possible.
Today’s podcast runs about 12 minutes in length, and we’re talking about herpes no condoms or sex without condoms, whether or not you have herpes or another type of sexually transmitted infection and disease. Wondering if you have to wear condoms for the rest of your life? That idea is not horrible, in and of itself, but we clarify, rather quickly, that that’s not actually necessary if you have an STD.
You’re welcome. 🙂
