How can guys have the best sex possible and feel good about the decisions they are making?
Everyone is different, and gay men find themselves faced with all kinds of surprising situations when they’re hooking up, dating, or cruising. It’s pretty common for gay guys to be dealing with other things in their life that have an effect on the sex they’re having — mental health, relationships, drinking or using drugs, for instance. The world can make us feel ashamed of who we are or what kind of sex we have, making it harder for us to make choices that bring us closer to the sex we want and the good health we deserve.
Taking charge of your health can mean taking some time to check in with yourself, talking to friends, and even seeking professional help if we’re going through tough times.
Most importantly, think through the sex you want, so you can look out for yourself if challenging situations come up.
