Sand, Scrapes and Scratches
Sand is not soft and when body parts come in contact with the sand there is exfoliation of the skin and abrasions comparable to a rug burn. Sand is used in the process of making glass, so it is able to make small cuts. When sex is part of the beach experience, the body is receiving small abrasions that allow particles to connect with the tissue. Even protected sex is at a disadvantage as sand has been shown to rip condoms and not be useful in protecting the sexual partners.
Don’t bring home any unwanted guests
The tide that washes in and out across the beach brings in bacteria and fecal matter along with other items that have been in the ocean. The ocean has brought many tainted items ashore along with the bacterial diseases contained on them. These bacteria and other materials can go in areas of the body with the sand causing infections and other illnesses. There is a risk with exposure to bacteria and other illnesses spread between humans or animals. These illnesses can weaken the immune system and makes the body more susceptible to sexually transmitted diseases during sexual contact with those that are infected.
Preparing for your Night
When heading to the beach for a moonlight stroll, carry a beach towel or blanket along with condoms for the “just in case” precaution. The blanket or beach towel along with the condom use adds a large layer of protection between the body and what is in the sand.
Regular testing for STDs is one way to make certain that sex was the only thing that happened on the beach. STD testing centers are available to assist with steps taken during the actual STD tests and the forthcoming results. STD counselors can provide testing guidelines and timelines to remain healthy and STD free. Having sex on the beach looks exciting and erotic in the movies, but can result in many health consequences. Take precautions and enjoy your time on the beach.
