f you know you are going to drink alcohol or take drugs, decide beforehand what sexual things you are and are not comfortable doing – and remind yourself of this later on. And try to make sure you’re with people you trust, who won’t pressure you into doing risky things in the first place.
If you are meeting someone you met online, or if you leave a party or bar with someone, always tell a friend. They can check up on you if they don’t hear from you, and it also sends a signal to the person you are with that people know where you are.
If you decide to have sex, choose the right protection for you. Remember – the pill won’t protect you from an STI or HIV, and PrEP will only prevent HIV, not other STIs. A condom is the only way to prevent HIV, STIs and pregnancy.
