Like nits in primary school from the girl at the next desk. Like a cold from the bloke who sneezes all over you on the bus. The closer you are the more likely you are to catch whatever the person you're near to has got.
So if you get really close up and personal, if you meet someone hot who makes you hotter still, someone you want to jump on, or you want to jump on you, until you're so all over each other like the proverbial rash, you've got to face up to the fact that if they've got something you're probably going to get it (especially if it’s a rash!).
It may be a sublime kiss in the moonlight, a sloppy drunken snog in the pub car park, a fumble on the sofa whilst babysitting or something full frontal and full on skin-to-skin and penetrative. Hey that's OK - it's called lust, it's what makes the world go round and makes babies. It's totally natural for both guys and girls. It's the most fun you can have with your clothes on or off.
Nobody ever wants to be ill from choice. Follow the advice in this section and you’ll reduce your chances of getting ill in the first place. But picking up an infection is an occupational hazard of being young, experimenting and growing up. So it pays to know the enemy. In this A-Z you’ll find out what you need to know about all the sexually transmitted things Lust might lead you into.
Knowingly infecting even the most casual partner is the single most socially unacceptable thing we can think of. Even when a relationship gets steady you need to ask questions or ‘fess up – especially if you’re planning to start having unprotected sex.
Whatever your sexual orientation you’re still open to contagious diseases. In some cases you may be even more at risk.
It pays to find out the truth so click here…
Some Lust Diseases are viruses and some caused by bacteria, all of which are highly contagious. Far and away the most common cause of contagion is sharing infected saliva, semen, vaginal or anal fluids, or by direct contact with an infected area.
That means the only way to keep safe is to put a barrier between your fluids and those of your partner.
IT MEANS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS USE A CONDOM – or find some other barrier method. Click to find out more…
Some Lust Diseases have few or no symptoms so you should get checked out regularly. Worse still over 21% of 18-24s say they’ve ignored possible symptoms because they were too embarrassed to go to their GP about them. So, even if you always use condoms when having sex you should have an annual check up.
You don’t have to go to your GP, there are testing services anybody can use. It’s completely free and no information about your visit will be shared with anyone without your permission. Click here for more info about the services, how they work, and what will happen when you go.
After years of the same old, same old there’s a new development in the world of condoms – custom fit, from TheyFit. The idea is that a better fit feels better and will encourage men to 'rubber up' - makes sense to us. TheyFit offer a range of custom fit rubbers available in a whopping 95 different sizes with lengths from just 3” all the way up to 10” and widths to fit circumferences from 3.5” out to 7.5”. So it means you’ll have to get that tape measure out and 'measure for pleasure'. But there’s a growing scientific data behind the custom fit concept with multiple clinical studies finding a link between poor fitting condoms and sexual issues like losing your erection or having difficult achieving orgasm. More importantly poor fitting condoms are more likely to fail during sex – slipping off if too big, and breaking if too small. TheyFit provide the common sense solution by tailoring each condom to the erection it will be covering.

Test yourself discretely and quickly and avoid the embarrassment and the wait!
Why Chlamydia is better than flu and what's Gangnam Style got to do with it?
Once into a steady relationship most people adopt the ‘what’s your is mine and what’s mine is yours’ sort of approach to getting each other’s illnesses. As you go through life you sort of appreciate that if your lifetime soul-mate comes complete with a cold sore it’s inevitable that one day you’ll get one.
But let’s be honest – most times lust starts when you don’t know anything about the object of your desire other than the fact they make your pulse race. Especially if there’s a drink or two involved. And there are certain things they could bring into any bout of passion you definitely wouldn’t want to catch. Some are diseases you get simply by kissing. Some you get from more explicit sexual contact. They’re all ‘contagious’ things and in many ways catching one is no different than catching mumps because you shared someone’s cup of hot chocolate.
Some won’t make you anywhere near as ill as mumps. Then again some can kill you! So there are things you need to catch onto about contagious diseases in order to make sure you don’t get caught out. You’ll find the information you need in this section.
