  • Female condom

    When used properly, the internal (female) condom protects against unplanned pregnancy and STIs, including HIV.

  • Fisting

    Fisting (fist-fucking, handballing) involves penetrating a vagina or anus with the entire hand.

  • Fluid bond

    In some monogamous and non-monogamous relationships, partners may feel comfortable and safe enough with each other that they decide to have unprotected sex. This agreement can be called a fluid bond because these partners now exchange body fluids.
