What Do You Want to Learn About STIs and Safe Sex?

I’m going to pick up and finally finish my extremely drawn out blog series on safe sex and STIs. Last spring I finally finished a run down of various STIs and their symptoms, causes, treatments, etc. Now I want to go back to that series and talk a bit about options when you or someone in your polycule has an STI, communicating about safe sex with your partners and a few other things.

But before I get too deep into that, I’d love for you to tell me if there is anything you really want to know about STIs and safe sex in polyamorous relationships. I can’t promise to have an answer, but I’ll damn well try. Leave a comment below, or contact me privately!

  1. Any comments on adding Truvada as a prophylactic and harm-reduction tool? I’m just considering it for the first time.

    • Most of what I know about Truvada is from reviewing the research before it was approved by the FDA. I’m going to need to do some research to make sure my info is up-to-date. Check back for a blog post on Truvada in a couple of weeks.
