A girl's guide to real protection in a hooked-up world

Chances are you found this website because you're searching for an answer to a question or an explanation to a problem. Perhaps you want to help a friend who's falling apart after a disappointing relationship. Or maybe it's an STD you weren't ever supposed to get.

This isn't the standard anything-goes-as-long-as-you-use-protection kind of sex ed website. 'Safer sex' guidelines were developed before you were born, but now we live in a different world. Now we're fighting a horde of bugs, and the bugs are winning. It's no longer enough to communicate with your 'partners', get tested, and use condoms. In this century, if you wish to avoid genital infections, you need a different plan.

This is a protect-yourself-because-no-one-else-will kind of sex ed website. The information you'll find here generally isn't taught in traditional sex ed courses. It isn't glamorous or sexy, either. It is pure medical science - about you and your body - compiled by a physician with years of experience counseling students at a major university health care center.

Whatever the question or problem, we hope you find what you're looking for.

Hook-Ups are a roll of the dice. What are your chances of perfect sixes every time?
