Hit or myth: Virgins are always STD-free

November 22, 2018
It seems logical for two virgins to not be able to contract an STD after sex. After all, you can’t create an STD from nothing right?
That’s where you’re wrong: a person could still have an STD even though he or she has not had sex before. That’s because STDs are passed on in a variety of ways other than genital-to-genital contact. Therefore, the best way to keep your first time worry-free when it comes to STDs is to use a condom during sex.
