It’s always important to take care of your health, no matter your circumstances. I don’t understand the whole emotional aspect behind fluid bonding but then again I’m not normal. I do like that Solo points out that having safer sex means paying more general attention to your partners and exploring new ways to connect. In my stories, I do include some conversations surrounding safe sex and the consequences of unprotected sex. Although my characters are luckier in that most of them can’t contract diseases. They have a lot of fun making fun of humans for this. Anyway, this is a long read yet it is totally worth it. It’s something I will address more deeply in my Nothing for Granted project (more on this later but suffice it to say most of my books deal with the ridiculousness of nonsense whereas this will deal with people who make sense). So be safe, everyone and be creative!
Yeah, OK, pun intended. Couldn’t help it.
Sexual health — and particularly safer sex skills — are key considerations in any relationship or connections that involve sexual contact. This is true even for monogamous relationships (because most of them are only ostensibly, not actually, monogamous) as well as for nonmonogamous relationships and more casual encounters. And fluid bonding (having barrier-free sex) can significantly increase most serious STI risks — if you don’t handle it consciously at all times.
Fluid bonding is not something that anyone should embark upon cavalierly or by default, not even monogamous people — not if they care about their own health and that of their partners.
