Hi there,

Just want to ask, like, if we have intercourse with a close friend, or anyone for that matter, without penetration of the penis into the vagina. Like, oral stimulation by the mouth and all. Is it safe? Or like, can diseases spread by that?

Yes. Diseases can be spread whenever there is an exchange of body fluids, i.e. vaginal secretions, semen, blood, etc.

For oral sex on a woman, we recommend Dental Dams. If you don't have any, regular plastic wrap will work. For oral sex on a man, a condom is going to be your best bet. Even better, you can use a flavored condom or lube.
