If you sincerely believed the headline, you've already made a big mistake.

The idea of unprotected sex may seem fun and exciting on paper, but it is one of the most common sex mistakes that can easily be fixed with education.

It may feel better, it may make things more convenient, there are a bunch of excuses to let him not wear a condom but they all have a downside one way or another. Whether you're just having fun or are in a committed relationship, always consider practicing sex responsibly.

Here are some "excuses" to NOT use a condom:

1. "But I'm on The Pill"


The Pill is a groundbreaking advancement in women's health, but unfortunately, it cannot do it all. Yes, you will protect yourself from an unwanted pregnancy but you would still be exposed to STDs and infection.

2. "I'm gay."

You still should consider a condom! Just because there is no possibility of you getting pregnant again does not mean there is no possibility of contracting an STD. If there is any penis entering you in the scenario, wear a condom or get tested.

3. "But we pull out"

Sometimes the pulling out method works, but you cannot 100% rely on that everytime. A little bit of a delay on exiting or even pre-cum can but a damper on the encounter and you will not even know until it's too late.

4. "I do the rhythm method and it's worked thus far."

The rhythm method is extremely popular, it tracks your menstrual cycle so you only have sex on days where you are at your least fertile. However, just like pulling out it still leaves you unprotected from STDs.

Also, you may be tracking your periods but unless they are medically regulated it's not safe to assume every cycle is just the same as the last. Sperm can live inside the body up to five days so one miscalculation could have lasting effects.

5. "But he offered to pay for Plan B"


Why pay $40 or more for that when you can pay less than $5 for a pack of condoms? If he thinks that is valid logic maybe you should be reconsidering him.

6. "We've done it before."

And it all worked out in the end, but there is no guarantee it will again. Talk to your partner and make sure this is something you two are both mature enough to handle if something were to go wrong.

7. "It feels better without one."

That may be true, it may feel ten times better to not wear one in the moment but once everything dies down you are bound to have a nagging feeling that something went wrong. Believe me, nothing feels better than knowing you are protected in every possible way.

8. "It's just one time."

It only takes just one time to come in contact with an STD or have an unplanned pregnancy.

In the end, no one is forcing you to have sex a certain way. Educate yourself on all your options and possibilities so you can make the best decision for you or your partner's needs and lifestyle. Have fun, and do so responsibly!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
