Ok, now that I have your attention, lets talk about you having unprotected sex. Are you? With the person that you are dating, or with a mate that you suspect of cheating?
Is it worth your health? Is it worth your life?
This is NOT about having babies. This is NOT about having fun. This is about dying. Every time you have unprotected sex, you are having sex with every person that your partner has ever had sex with. You may think you know your partner well, but do you know every single person that your partner has ever had sex with?
If your husband or wife is cheating on you, then you are playing with a loaded gun by having unprotected sex with them.
Think they look healthy? The majority of people with AIDS today don't even know they have it. Men can carry STDS without knowing it. And, whether you want to hear this or not, people will lie to get sex! They can tell you that they have been tested, but how do you know that they are telling you the truth?
Don't be a dope! No sex is so good that it is worth dying for!
