    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Does ejaculating outside your partner prevent STD's?
    Tusl1 posted:

    My wife has always had the notion that safe sex meant that as long as her partners (past) ejaculated outside of her, she was safe, and immune from all STD's. In her opinion, this (bizarre) scenario constituted safe sex. I think this is ludicrous....please enlighten her!!!
    Torcal responded:
    It's a rediculous notion. How's that?
    FCL responded:
    She can catch herpes, HPV and syphilis from skin-to-skin contact. Other STDs (including HIV) can be transmitted via precum as by ejaculate albeit with a lower risk.
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
    FCL responded:
    There are STDs that are communicated via skin-to-skin contact, syphilis, herpes and HPV for instance. There are also the same risks for other STDs (including HIV) from pre-cum albeit lower.
