Sexual Health FAQs

Q. What is an erection?

A. An erection is a hardening of the penis that occurs when tubes in the penile tissues fill up with blood. Usually, an erection causes the penis to enlarge and stand away from the body. Erections away on their own or after ejaculation -- the release of semen through the urethra, the small hole at the tip of the penis.

Q. What is oral sex?

A. Oral sex can take place in various ways when it involves a man & woman, (or a woman and a woman, or a man and a man): Heterosexual oral -- The woman can stimulate the man's genitals with her mouth and tongue (called: fellatio, “blow job”). The man can stimulate the woman's vulva, clitoris and vagina with his tongue (cunnilingus).

Either partner can stimulate the area round the other partner's anus (“rimming”) with his or her tongue. Always use a dental dam, condom or plastic wrap (if you don't have a dam) when doing this. If you are married and in a monogamous relationship, you make the decision if you need the STD protection. For more, see the above question.

Dental dams now come in different sizes and flavors. They are made for oral sex and rimming, so they are better than using a condom. Read the article for instructions, and so on. I think I explained them pretty well. Dental Dams - Go there...

Q. Is It normal to get erections during the day? I am 16 years old.

A. Yes. Erections are a perfectly normal function of the male body, especially in guys who are going through puberty. Many erections are caused by sexual arousal, such as watching a sexy movie or from sexual fantasizing. Many seem to happen for no reason at all. If you've gotten an erection during a weird or embarrassing situation, like in the middle of a really boring history class, there's no reason to worry that something is wrong with you. Your body is just acting naturally for a guy your age.

Q. Do I have to go to my doctor to get birth control?

A. You don't have to go to a doctor to get condoms, the female condom,  the “Sponge”, sexual lubricants or dental dams. Condoms are sold in most drug stores chains, in some super markets and via the Internet. The female condom is called "Reality" Click here to go to a Reality shop for the best priced female condoms on the web.

If you decide to take the Pill, use a Diaphragm, Depo-Provera, or “the Patch” (a.k.a.) Ortho Evra, or NuvaRing you will have to see a health care provider or a clinic. For more information visit those pages.
