There is more to it than meets the eye-yes, the more serious and conscientious you are in your efforts to control your libido and opt for safe sex, the more healthy and trouble-free your sexual profile will be for many years to come.

If you manage to adhere to safe sex practices as a first-timer, then there is no reason why you cannot become an expert in protected sex habits. Thus, you will be safeguarding not only your health but also partner’s.
