    Do women who have sex with women need to use any prophylactic methods?

    @ellebelle I have always been wondering about this as well. Gays can use condoms but not sure if lesbians should also use some kinds of protection.

    Aren’t there sheets (the name escapes me) to protect against STIs?

    @ellebelle great question! Condoms can be used when sharing sex toys like a dildo to prevent STI transmission between women.  In other words: use a new condom on the dildo for each person being penetrated.

    @kit the sheets you’re thinking of are called dental dams! These can be used to prevent oral-genital transmission of herpes when anyone – male, female or nonbinary- is performing oral sex on someone with a vulva/vagina.

    Lesbian, bisexual or queer women can also use a condom to avoid STIs whenever they have vaginal sex with a person who has a penis.

    If you want to know more, check out this comprehensive article on safer sex & STI risk for women who have sex with women!
