Our guide on how to score in Brazil, safely!
We, at MTV Staying Alive, are very jealous of all the people lucky enough to be hitting up Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. As one of the sexiest countries on the planet, Brazil is sure to be a fun place to enjoy the beautiful game and beautiful men and women. So to make sure you score the right way, check out our World Cup safe sex guide:
1. Pack condoms and use them
Bring enough condoms to last your entire trip and make sure you use one every single time you have sex. Remember that more than half a million people are living with HIV in Brazil, and STI rates in Latin America can be pretty high. (Image credit: zendritic).
2. Booze responsibly
If you’re planning drinking alcohol, set yourself up for success. It’ll be hot in Brazil, so make sure you drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and prevent yourself from becoming too drunk. Even better, staying hydrated equals a better orgasm!
3. Had unprotected sex? Help is at hand…
Your team has scored, and so have you! One thing leads to another and you do end up having unprotected sex. Don’t panic. If you think it’s possible that you may have contracted an STI, try to get to a sexual health clinic immediately (Brazil has a good health system so this shouldn’t be a problem). Make sure to visit your doctor as soon as you get home too.
4. In an emergency, call 192
The number to dial for emergency services in Brazil is 192. If you fall victim to sexual assault, or any other kind of attack, seek police and medical assistance as soon as possible. If you’re British, the Foreign and Common Wealth Office should provide you with support after a sexual assault abroad. Other national embassies and consulates will be able to provide help for their citizens.
5. Avoid the spur-of-the-moment tattoo
Ok this one is not sex-related, but it’s still important. As #YOLO as it may seem at the time, you’re best re-thinking that spontaneous trip to the tattoo or piercing parlour. You can pick up some truly nasty diseases from un-hygienic needles, including HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C.
Have fun but stay safe in Brazil this summer! #YOLOBYLWTCOYAFYWL (you only live once but you live with the consequences of your actions for your whole life)
