Question: Sex without a condom
|LPN_76 - Wed Nov 04, 2009 12:10 pm||
my partner and I prefer not to use condoms, it feels more pleasurable. We both were checked for STI's and have none. Can we still cause an infection?

In a monogamous relationship where both of you are free of infection and faithful, you would not pass sexually transmitted infections unless you had something in a latent state that did not yet show up on the test - some infections can take a while (like HIV). But, just having sex does not result in infection.
