"[A condom] will prevent you from coming into contact with the surface of the toy," said Rachel Worthington, a sex educator at Bedbible, a sex toy reviewer based in Denmark. "It's actually something I would recommend doing with all toys made from porous materials, regardless of whether or not you have an infection."

"If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can also try a perineal massage," Worthington says. "Just add a dollop of lube to your fingers, warm it up a bit and then gently massage the area just below the anus. In penis owners, massaging this area can actually indirectly stimulate the prostate, but it can also feel super pleasurable for vulva owners, too."
"If you have sensitive nipples and enjoy nipple stimulation during foreplay and sex, try dabbing a small amount on each nipple," she says. "Then have your partner stroke, squeeze or flick your nipples, and every sensation will suddenly feel even more intense. Plus, it will have a delightfully cooling effect, which can be intensified even more by gently blowing on the nipples."

‘The fear of judgement from a potential sexual partner is a big problem, as well as the possibility of rumours being spread,’ Rachel Worthington, a sex expert and writer, tells Metro.co.uk. ‘Since STIs are often linked in our society to ideas of promiscuity, many of us fear what people will think of us if we tell them we have an STI.’
‘Disclosing your STI status is an important part of being transparent with your sexual partners,’ Rachel says. ‘Having an STI is not shameful, but it is something that could affect any sexual partners if they engage in sex with you. By disclosing if you have an STI, your partner can make an informed decision about whether or not they want to have sex with you, as well as what kind of sex you’ll be having, and what precautions to take.’
