"Talk to your partner about wearing a condom. Q: Don't you trust me? A: Of course. But either one of us could be infected with HIV and not know. I could relax a little easier knowing we were both protected. Q: We've been seeing each other for six months, we don't have to use safer sex anymore. A: Even though six months seems like a long time, it can take years for symptoms to show up. Either one of us could have been infected before we started going out. Q: I don't like the way it feels when I use one of those. A: Having AIDS doesn't feel good either. Why don't we try putting a bit of K-Y jelly inside the condom and that will make it feel better for you. Q: Aren't you on the pill? A: Birth control pills won't protect you from HIV infection. That's why we should be careful and use condoms with the spermicide nonxynol-9. Q: I'll pull out before I come. A: When a man becomes sexually excited, even a small drop of pre-ejaculate fluid can contain HIV and sperm. Q: what kind of girl are you anyhow? A: I'm the type of girl who cares about protecting herself and her partners.
