STD – how do I keep my holiday sex safe

Soon we will be going on holiday again en masse. Sex during the holidays sometimes happens to you unprepared, how do you prevent yourself from coming back with an STD?

What is an STD?

An STD is a sexually transmitted disease. You contract this by having sex without a condom with someone who is a carrier of the disease in question. There are various STDs, all with their own clinical picture and different symptoms. The most common STDs are:

  • Chlamydia
  • Genital Warts
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis B
  • Herpes Genitalis
  • HIV (cause of AIDS)
  • Syphilis


Sex on holiday

For many young people, holidays mean: sun, beach, parties, dancing, drinks and sex . Young people want to enjoy the “good life” during their holidays and go all out. It is therefore not uncommon to end up in bed with your holiday sweetheart or with a one-night stand or to have a spontaneous make-out session elsewhere. You often don’t realize at the time that your exciting date could have dire consequences.

How do you prevent getting an STD?

  • The most important thing is good preparation: purchase (enough) condoms in the Netherlands . Not only if you are male, but also if you are a woman, make sure you have them with you (especially when you go out).
  • Drinking is one of the fun things that comes with parties. However, try not to drink too much, if you end up in a sex adventure with a lot of alcohol behind you, you will certainly not be aware of the dangers.
  • Insist that no sex is had without a condom . If your partner doesn’t want to have sex, don’t have sex, even if he or she says he or she has no illnesses or changing contacts.
  • Oral sex is also not without risks, try to avoid it, unless with a condom (that is, with the male partner).
  • In areas with major tourist attractions such as bars and dance halls, there are more people who have an STD . Be extra careful about this.
  • Never let yourself be persuaded into having sex when you don’t actually want to. It is extra sad if you are also left with an STD.
  • The best thing, of course, is not to have sex with people you don’t know well. If it does happen, never forget the condom!
  • In addition to getting an STD, the ladies are not interested in pregnancy, so make sure you use the pill in addition to the condom, even if it is only for the duration of your holiday.


Still suspecting an STD?

If, after returning from holiday, you suspect or fear that you have contracted an STD because you forgot the condom, or that it has torn, go to your doctor or an STD clinic as soon as possible. Here you can be tested and receive the right medication. Sometimes it is even possible to be tested anonymously if you wish.
