    Getting tested, contraception and keeping safe


    If you do find yourself lucky during freshers week, then it's important that you do try and have safe sex. Whilst being on the pill or having the implant will make it near on impossible for you to get pregnant, it is important to remember that these do not protect you from STI's. So, if you end up taking home a random guy/ girl, try to use condoms as they do help reduce the risk of you catching STi's. They aren't too expensive, and if cost is something that you're not keen on most shine/GUM clinics do provide free condoms (for under 24's I think).

    Ladies, if a guy says he's too big for a condom then honestly I'd be a bit . Not only can you get condoms in a variety of sizes, but no one has a member that is too big for a condom.

    I'm not sure about coverage in the rest of the country, but I know that in east London (I'm sure there are similar schemes in other parts) there are shine clinics all over which provide free sti testing, contraception and advice to under 24's.

    Depending on what you're being tested for, results will typically take about a week to come back and it's ridiculously easy to get tested. Obviously this is a big help if you've had unprotected sex and start experiencing symptoms, but even if you don't have symptoms it's still good to get tested. They offer testing for everything from the clap to HIV, and can give advice on different types of contraception as well as the morning after pill. Obviously it'd be great if you practiced safe sex, but it's nice to know that if you have a bit of an 'oops' moment that the services are there.

    This is probably the wrong website to ask, given the number of virgins.

    If... by some stroke of luck I manage to pull during freshers, I'll definitely try and be safe. That said, I can't be sure about how I'll behave when really pissed so who knows?

    I've been working on my pull out game and personally prefer this.
    9/10 I'd still take a condom and see what she prefers.
    However, if she sleeps around a lot, it would be condom or no sex.

    Plently of guys keep them in their wallets so yes 😂 but if you’re expecting it, as plenty do during freshers then both men and women should make the effort to be safe - it’s really not hard and it’s just not worth the risk. I mean can you imagine all those people who’ve got HIV/AIDS or whatever and just think about how one small thing could’ve changed everything...

    Problem is some people will get so out of it during freshers you don’t know who they’ve pulled and sadly if you get caught up it’s game over.. just not worth the risk especially during a time when you know people are messing around.

    How many people hook up during freshers? Like we talking at least 50% of the people who go to the events?

    Let's face it there's gonna be some sluts of both genders in Fresher's just rubber up, plainly, and simply

    but don't rush it, if you're spending as much time getting laid as socialising and meeting people, you're doing it wrong.
