We all know that eating a lot of yummy cake can be bad for health, as it can cause certain disorders like diabetes and weight gain, right?
Similarly, sex, an enjoyable act that gives immense pleasure, can also pose the threat of deadly disorders, when people do not practice safety.
Now, it is true that sexual intercourse, apart from helping procreation, also has other health benefits, like stress relief, strengthening the bond between the partners, treating depression, etc.

So, to avoid certain infections, which can have disastrous consequences, people must use condoms while having sex, especially if it is with multiple partners.
