  • STI's |

    SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS STIs are more likely to be passed along when we are too embarrassed to talk about them. We encourage you to help eliminate the stigma around sexuality and STIs by talking to your friends and partners about testing and condoms with confidence, and being accepting and affirming of partners who have an STI. We should get tested 1-2 times a year if we’re in a monogamous relationship and 3-4 times a year if we change partners more often (or just any time we’re worried about it!). MOST COMMON SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTION Chlamydia Chlamydia is the most common STI at UW-Madison! A bacteria passed along through fluids. Condoms are 98% effective at protecting against the spread of Chlamydia. It can cause clear discharge from the urethra opening of a penis, burning, itching, and scratching. Some people describe it as like“peeing razors”. But is often sneaky and we may have no symptoms at all. We can be tested for free at UHS! Chlamydia is curable with antibiotics, antibiotics cost about $15 with insurance depending on the plan. it's important to Follow the treatment regimen carefully and abstain from sex 7-10 days; even after symptoms go away to make sure it has completely cleared up. ​ What happens when we don’t have health care? ​ The Planned Parenthood (Madison South Health Center) on the south side of madison offers a lot of sexual health services, such as STI testing, pregnancy testing, emergency contraception, and birth control counseling and placement. They accept most insurance, including medicaid, but no one is turned away because of an inability to pay. ​ Lack of insurance - There are a lot of people who have less access to healthcare due to a lack of insurance. This can make seeking out sexual and reproductive health much harder, and it impacts some people more than others. Don’t be afraid to advocate for your health and learn resources in your community; there are always people willing to help.

  • Barrier Methods | Sex Out Loud

    BARRIER METHODS Barrier methods are the most reliable way to prevent STI transmission between sexual partners, and can also be used as a form of contraception. At Sex Out Loud, we recommend using a barrier method and a second contraceptive method if any of our partners may be at risk of pregnancy. Check out our page on contraceptive methods! INSERTIVE CONDOMS What Are Insertive Condoms? Insertive condoms, also known as male condoms, are barrier methods that are used by the insertive partner during sex. They are the most common barrier method in use today and are 98% effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy and STIs. They can be used to prevent both pregnancies during male-female intercourse and the spread of STIs between any partners during anal, oral, or vaginal intercourse. They're available in a variety of sizes, shapes, textures, materials, and also flavors for oral sex. How do you use an Insertive Condom? Insertive condoms are rolled over what is being inserted, such as a penis, toy, or fingers. It is important to know how to properly use insertive condoms, because not properly using them can lead to failure, increasing the chances of unplanned pregnancy or the spread of STIs. ​ ​ ​ ​ Once this is complete, begin rolling the condom onto the penetrative object. Make sure to leave room for fluids to collect inside the condom by pinching the tip while you roll it on. Leaving some extra room also decreases friction, lowering the chance of breakage. If using a condom on a penis, make sure to pull out right away after ejaculation. If a penis goes flaccid before you pull out, the condom can slip off and expose you and your partner to unwanted fluids. Once out, turn away from your partner, slip the condom off, and throw it away. Condoms are one-time use only and should always be tossed in the garbage, as they will clog toilets. ​ Also, remember not to double bag: the increased friction between two condoms can increase the chance of breakage. There are three steps to follow before opening a condom: Wash your hands (oils—such as those found in lotion, pizza, and naturally on skin—degrade condoms). Check the expiration date. Feel for the air bubble in the package to ensure that the condom isn't compromised. What Are Receptive Condoms? Receptive condoms, also known as female condoms, are a barrier method used by the receptive partner during sex. They can be used to prevent both pregnancy during male-female intercourse and the spread of STIs between partners during anal or vaginal intercourse. They are 98% effective at preventing unwanted pregnancies and STIs. How do you use an Insertive Condom? Receptive condoms are inserted into the vagina or the anus of the receptive partner during intercourse. It is important to know how to properly use receptive condoms, because not properly using them can lead to failure, increasing the chances of unplanned pregnancy or the spread of STIs. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Once this is complete the receptive condom can be inserted into the vagina or anus. Receptive condoms include a ring on the inside for vaginal use. This holds the condom in place against the cervix. To insert into the vagina, twist the ring into a figure-eight and begin feeding it into the vagina. Once inserted, there will be material left outside of the vagina, covering the vulva. To use anally, the ring should be removed. After this, the condom can be inserted into the anus using a finger or two to feed it in. Some material will remain outside the anus covering the area around it. ​ There are some things to consider when using a receptive condom. One is that you should "shoot for the hoop." Make sure the penetrative object is being inserted into the opening of the condom. If it goes outside the opening of the condom, that defeats the purpose of using a barrier method in the first place. Also, if the condom is being used anally, but also vaginally, make sure it is not being pushed to far into the anus or vagina to the point at which it either needs to be fished out or fluids are able to escape the condom. ​ Once you're done, the condom can be removed by twisting the material left outside the vagina or the anus so that fluids inside the condom cannot escape, after which is can be slowly pulled out and thrown away. Receptive condoms are one-time use only and should be thrown in the garbage. They will clog a toilet. ​ Also, remember not to double bag: the increased friction between two condoms, even between an insertive and receptive condom, can increase the chance of breakage. There are three steps to follow before opening a condom: Wash your hands. Check the expiration date. Feel for the air bubble in the package to ensure the condom isn't compromised. RECEPTIVE CONDOMS What Are Sex Dams? Sex dams, also known as dental dams, are a type of barrier method used for oral-anal contact, oral-vulvar contact, or any other type of oral contact on the surface of the body. They can be used by individuals of any gender or sexual identity. Sex dams are available in a variety of scents. How do you use an Sex Dams? Sex dams are easy to use. They are sheets of latex that are placed over whatever area of the body is being stimulated orally. They cannot be used more than once, moved to different parts of the body, or flipped over. This increases the chances a partner gets exposed to STIs. Remember to wash your hands before you use them, because oils can degrade a latex dam. SEX DAMS What Are Latex Gloves? Well, latex gloves are exactly what they sound like: they're much like the ones you would find at the doctor or dentist's office. How do you use Latex Gloves? Latex gloves can be used for a variety of things. They can be used for any form of manual sex, including fingering or fisting. They're especially good if one partner has a cut or open sore on their hands or fingers, but would like to finger or fist without exchanging bodily fluids. In addition to that they can be used during kink play that may include exposure to bodily fluids that can transmit STIs. LATEX GLOVES LORALS What Are Lorals? Lorals are sex dams underwear that come in different cuts, colors, scents and sizes! They come in sizes 0 - 20 and include shorts and bikini cut. They even come in black or pink and are scented like vanilla.

  • Lubrication |

    Lube, Lube, Lube The Wetter the Better! Deciding which lube is the best is really a matter of personal preference and figuring out what you want to get out of your slippery sexual experience. WATER BASED Water-based lubrication is the most basic and generally the least expensive variety of lubrication. It is made by many different brands, so it is easy to find and it is a good place to start if you are just beginning your experimentation with lube. Simply add some lube to whatever you want and slip and slide away, but keep the lube bottle handy because water-based lubrication often requires reapplication. Water-based lubrication can be cleaned relatively easily with plain water, no soap required, and it also won't stain sheets or clothing if a spill should occur. One thing to keep in mind if you decide to use water-based lube is that many varieties—such as K-Y, Wet, and Astroglide—contain glycerin (sugar) and if you or whoever is going to be using the lube is prone to yeast infections, it will be worth your time to find a brand or type that is glycerin-free. Some water-based lubrication that do not have glycerin as an ingredient are Liquid Silk and Play. Other lubes that are water-based can be flavored. Flavored lube is for ORAL use only. There is a great deal more sugar in flavored lubrication, so it is in your best interest to keep them involved in oral situations only. ​ At the Sex Out Loud office we carry the following brands:​ Slippery Stuff One Oasis Good Clean Love, Vegan Lube SILICONE BASED Silicone-based lubrication is really great if you are looking for a lubricant that is going to last for a long time. This is an "apply it and it's there until you wash it off" sort of lube. Silicone-based lube is great for anal sex because it is long lasting and you won't risk a water-based lubricant drying up. Silicone lube is not for use with silicone toys because the enzymes that keep the silicone a liquid at room temperature will bind to the silicone toy and literally melt it. Silicone-based lubrication is also not the lube to use when you have your favorite sheets on your bed because this lube will stain if it gets onto fabric. But don't let that deter you because silicone is a great lube to try, just lay a towel down and get to it! ​ At the Sex Out Loud Office, we carry the following brands: One Move Velvet Backslide: Anal Formula LUBE WE CARRY *Descriptions from suppliers Almost Naked "delivers a smooth, long-lasting experience. So much so that it’s the top-selling organic lubricant in the U.S.* Almost Naked is water-based with silky, organic aloe that reduces irritation and enhances pleasure. It’s formulated to work with your body, not against it - pH balanced and with a touch of beneficial lactic acid. Almost Naked is also iso-osmolar.

ONE, Oasis Silk ​Premium hybrid lubricant specially formulated to contain optimal amounts of both water and silicone to provide the advantages of both experiences. Longer lasting and silky. Easy to clean. pH balanced to match natural lubrication. Tested and proven compatible with silicone toys. Compatible with latex and polyisoprene condoms. Leaves skin smooth and hydrated.

Made from the finest quality ingredients Compatible with natural rubber latex, polyisoprene, and polyurethane condoms Waterbased, oil-free lubricant for easy clean up Leaves skin hydrated and smooth Überlube "High-end luxury lubricant. Instead of just being slippery, Überlube is designed to transfer sensation while reducing friction. Überlube feels amazingly silky and performs as long as you’re using it. When Überlube stops being manipulated, it starts to dissipate, leaving skin soft and moisturized, never wet or sticky." Slippery Stuff "Slippery Stuff Gel is made with a special paraben and glycerin-free formula - making it safer for people with sensitive skin and allergies. Using a revolutionary new preservative derived from grains and plants, this all-purpose lube is specially blended to feel like your body’s own natural juices. And it's just as sleek and long-lasting as ever! The extra-thick gel is great for almost anything, including backdoor penetration, fun in the shower, toy play and marathon-long sex! ​ Sippery Stuff is a water-based lube so you can use it safely with all types of condoms and sex toys." Backslide Thick, cushiony, smooth, and long lasting; ID Backslide is the perfect formula for anal sex and pleasure. This unique silicone lubricant not only has super slip, but also contains clove and spilanthes that act as a mild muscle relaxant. This makes penetration easier, but doesn't dull any of the pleasure.
