What is 'fluid bonding?'

When we talk about 'fluid bonding' or 'fluid exchange,' we're not talking about a glass of water shared with your partner, but about body fluids released during sex. As you can see, this sexual practice is far from being unknown and is regularly performed by couples.

However, not using a condom (male or female) during sex, fellatio or cunnilingus can be risky if you are not careful. While the mutual decision to use 'fluid bonding' is synonymous with a serious relationship or fidelity for some, when other partners enter the dance, the situation is quite different.

The risks of 'fluid bonding'

As for all sexual practices or paraphilias, before taking action, it is necessary to talk about it. Thus, before devoting itself to the pleasures of the 'fluid bonding' with its darling, a discussion is essential. Even more so when you want to have a threesome. It is necessary to make sure that everyone is willing and ready to drop the condom. Even if the blessing is given, you must not forget the risks involved: the first being the transmission of STD (sexually transmitted disease) or STI (sexually transmitted infection).

The second is, in the case of heterosexual couples, unwanted pregnancy. In this second case, it is recommended to use contraception before having recourse to fluid bonding, such as the IUD, the contraceptive pill or male contraception.

As a reminder, screening before each sexual encounter is essential for the health of all partners. And if you haven't had the time to plan your screening test before you fall in love with your partner, forget about 'fluid bonding' and use a condom!
