Consent can be withdrawn at any time — even during sex

This is 100% true, always. Consent should always follow FRIES: Freely given, Reversible, Informed, Enthusiastic, Specific.

Correct Incorrect
You need consent every single time you have sex with someone

Absolutely true. Just because you’ve had sexual contact with someone before doesn’t mean they’re obligated every time. Explicit consent is needed.

Correct Incorrect
If you’re in a relationship you should always say yes to sex

False. It doesn’t matter if it’s the first time you’re having sex with someone or the 100th, you NEVER have to do something you don’t want to.

Correct Incorrect

Keep Going!

You can assume consent as long as a sexual partner doesn’t say ‘no.’

False. Consent should never be assumed. It requires active & ongoing communication between both sexual partners.

Correct Incorrect


Condoms are the only contraception that protects against both unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections

This is true. If you’re using another form of birth control to prevent pregnancies, you’ll still need to use condoms to protect from STIs.

Correct Incorrect
Condoms are 98% effective at preventing pregnancy when used correctly

It’s true. But only if you use them correctly! Visit our condom page to brush up on your condom skills.

Correct Incorrect
Condoms don’t have an expiry date

Absolutely false. Unfortunately, condoms don’t last forever. An expired condom is more likely to break during sex, so make sure you always check the expiration date before using.

Correct Incorrect
Sex doesn’t feel as good with a condom

Definitely false. There are so many condoms to try—ultra-thin, ribbed, varying sizes—you will find one that works for you. Plus, sex without the worry of unplanned pregnancies or sexually transmitted infections will always feel better.

Correct Incorrect

You're nearly done!

You should use a condom during oral sex

It’s possible to get an STI via oral sex too, so using a condom—or a dental dam for mouth to vagina or mouth to anus sex—is the best way to stay safe.

Correct Incorrect


Chlamydia can be treated with a course of antibiotics

It’s true. In fact, many sexually transmitted infections are easily treated if diagnosed early. Getting tested for them is quick and easy too.

Correct Incorrect
All sexually transmitted infections have symptoms

False, sexually transmitted infections often have no symptoms at all. It’s another reason getting tested is so important.

Correct Incorrect
It’s important to let sexual partners know if you get diagnosed with chlamydia

True. Letting any current or previous sexual partner from the past 6 months know means they can get tested and treated if needed. It also means they won’t pass it back to you if you have sex again

Correct Incorrect

Safe sex is great sex!

You can have genital herpes and never know

Herpes is one of the most common infections in Australia, but most people who have it get such mild symptoms they never notice.

Correct Incorrect

You are the
condom maestro.
