Ya never know what's actually out there, right?
Anything is possible and Planned Parenthood wants people to be prepared if they ever meet the Edward Cullen or Bill Comptom-esqe seksi vampire of their dreams.
The nation’s leading sexual and reproductive health care provider and advocate got into the Halloween spirit with a fun, but informative press release. It warned that if you decide to have sex with a bloodsucker, "you’re going to need more than a clove of garlic to protect your health."
In the hopes that there really are a few hunky undead boys out there waiting to seduce us, check out these helpful tips to avoid any unwanted consequences from getting down and dirty with a vampire!
• Vampires might be immortal, but you’re not. It’s important for both vampires and humans to get tested for STDs. Use this tool to find out if you should get tested for STDs.
• Ladies, just because a vampire says he can’t get you pregnant, it doesn’t mean he can’t give you an STD. And guys, just because a vampire says she’s on the pill, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get an STD. Use a condom correctly every time.
• Don’t wait until you’re in the heat of the moment to bring up safer sex. Vampires have been known to “glamour” people to get their way, so play it safe and make it clear that you won’t have sex without protection right from the start.
The organization was careful to note that if PG-13 movies about hawt vampires have taught us anything, it's that the impossible is possible! Edward knocks up Bella in Breaking Dawn, so don't forget to use proper birth control!
Werewolves and zombies, on the other hand, were not covered in the press release. Unless you want your favorite body parts ripped off, instead of gently nibbled on, we suggest avoiding that crowd.
