For queer women, there are far too many misconceptions about what safe sex looks like and far too many presumptions about what positions can and cannot put you at risk. In this article, we seek to debunk myths about female sex, to explore the risk of STIs and STDs, and to rectify misguided beliefs. It’s time to talk - not just about sex, but about safer sex.
