Question: How Do You Have Sex with the Same Sex and Is it Good to Do That?
I regularly run workshops for high school students. At every session I collect and answer anonymous questions, submitted on slips of paper. Here's one I got recently: "How do you have sex with the same sex, and is it good to do that?"
Answer: There is nothing wrong with having sex with someone of the same gender, as long as both partners are comfortable with the situation.

There are many ways that people can be sexual with a partner. This is true whether someone is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or straight.

Kissing, penetration, mutual masturbation, oral sex, massage, body rubbing, fantasy, and using sex toys are just some of the ways that people of the same gender have sex together.

Remember, it is very important to practice safer sex. That means using a condom for oral, anal, and vaginal sex, and a dental dam for oral sex performed on a woman, or any oral / anal contact.
