Well, gay, so we all have to put a finger on most of the time. I think. I'm wondering, should I have kept that? I'm trying to think if I actually love that character. I don't think I did. I just enjoyed his character. I don't know if I've ever fallen in love with the fictional character. I've fall in love with my own characters. Give me a SEC, I don't not even a relevant like I'm gonna come my fromer down because I already did. It was wild. Oh, but like, I don't think I fall in love with him. I don't think I fell in love with characters before. Now. I fell in love with Max from two broke girls. Is that a TV show? Yeah, grandma, sorry, it's literally a sant calm about two girls living in New York. Oh, I don't really watch TV. It's on prime and I used to watch it like camping as a kid, but I never understood what they were saying because it like it's a lot of dirty jokes and you didn't know them as a child. Shocking. I did not understand what Clamidia was as a child. I'm sorry, I have Columbitiar Calamnitia COA. Ha, wait, just curious. How old were y'all? Like, we don't have to put this in the podcast. How old were y'all when you read your first like intimate scene. I nine. My French Charlie at like my friend a wow, I was like ten. My friend Charlie at lunch was like hey, look at my search history and it was like Oh my God.

And my uncle got me a horror book. I want her books. But you know, there was a sex scene in it where the it goes very in detail about one female as this Halfan PR assistant and it was very like whole white but I didn't understand up was I was very confusing and then I read it back I was like, oh, he means hopea talks her, but top actually it was all about like this woman goes to an island and hurricane hit. This finds two children and she finds out both of the children are undead and one of the children can shoot lass out of his eyes and the other child a man. The other time it was it was so strange. I don't remember the book title. I just like back. Actually, no, you find out that the main character, the woman, is actually also one dead, like she died in the school, but like she didn't. She died, so she came back. That's so claiche. I don't know, I just remember the the tentacles. Oh okay, anyways, yeah, okay, let's Tuck sex. I was just curious. House be sex. We are literally talking about how wasn't? What is our topic? He very if you want to say what it is, as we about to get into it. Contrast, Seption, my favorite topic. So the three most basic cont of conception correct. Yes, yes, our absency, as abstinence, outer of course, and both control or fertility awareness methods absoluti. Yes, is a hundred percent effective in that it's just refraining from engaging sexual activity. That being said, it is a choice and it is not the same as a sexuality. A sexuality, it's a sexual don't feel sexual attraction. abstances. Don't choose not to go into sexual activities. Plus, a sexuals can have sex if, if they want to. It is to yeah, yeah, out of course is nearly a hundred percent, nearly a hundred percent effective. Want to do that? Nearly. It is strictly non I know the ward, sorry, guys, non penerat role. The doesn't go in sex, it doesn't go in the penis, does not into the vagina. However, because out of course includes other forms of intimacy, such because or a hand sex, you still the possiblity of being pregnant whenever this swarm gets near the vagetal clan or an STD. If you're not, the chance of not being pregnant happening. Just to clarify, you can get pregnant from anal. If there was, to say, leakage. Use a condom. Yeah, because any time that s firm gets like near the vagina, you haven...

...and if you're a man and this happens, you don't know who is actually a Greek God, and full you know you're going to get pregnant from a great God. So we're a condom, no matter what. Exactly exactly, okay, forms of birth control that can range from temporary to permanent, and it's always best to discuss your options with the doctor if you're interested in any of these methods. Honestly, from personal experience, if you're looking to have hormonal birth control as a female, find a female doctor. It's so much more yes, it is so much more comfortable. anyways, less you know, they won't write you off as hysterical. Exactly, exactly, exactly. anyways. Um, back to the topic. There's five different types of birth control. Low maintenance schedule used birth control used every time, permanent and lifestyle, starting with low maintenance. You can get birth control implant or an IUD. Implant is a tiny thin rod about the size of a match stick that releases hormones to prevent pregnancy. A doctor inserts it into your arm and can last up to five years. It does not protect from STI's can cost up to one thou three hundred dollars and is ninety nine percent effective. And IUD is a small t shape device that put into your uterus. There are two types, copper and hormonal. They both work in directing sperm away from the uterus, in that copper repels sperm, which I actually found out this morning. I was I thought it was super cool, but anyways, that way. Oh my goodness, wait, I'm sorry, what drap the Penny? One more thing, copper, copper IUD's can also be used as emergency contraception. Hmm Huh, the like a plan beat. Yeah, well, it's called for for of your emotions, anyways. And the yeah, so the hormonal I you d basically all types of birth control that are home monals use the same two hormones, which is estrogen and protein pro dressed drone. Yeah, as so. It thickens the Cervix Wall and postpones ovulation, which is when the egg is released from the ovary and down the flopian tubes. The copper IUD can last up to twelve years, whereas the home home hormone, thank you, hormonal I ud last anywhere from three to seven years, depending on the type. It has the same range of price as an implant, doesn't protect from Stis and is ninety nine percent effective. I'm I'm just sitting here as a man, like why is kicking? Why did doing not two stuff? Sorry. I would like to say one more thing before Jackson continues. So certain birth controls can use either estrogen or progesterone, or both, depending on what works with your body. See what you're alleged to. Yeah,...

I'm just like you. Will definitely read the fine print. I on my very on my first birth control, that the pail that I tried, I ended up getting ridiculously sick for like a full week. Yeah, and I want made me so suicidal. I'm gonna like say some things as we're going through the next pot. But so see, onto schedule. Both control, which includes a Pat, a patch, a pill, a shot or ring one, that the patch is replaced weekly and can cost up to a hundred and fifty. H Too much. Look and talk and if ninety one percent effective. Holone deep through the patch into the skin when it is placed on the belly of a arm or butt, and it stops over relation, over over ovulation, oblation of relation. I'm sorry if I'm not saying it wrong sex. That does not teach men how females walk at all. The patch works most often with etchrogen and proxygen. Is that correct? Protogen, Progesteron, forgester on, for Justi on. Same with the pill. The pill is taking daily and cost up to fifty. Still too much for a book. Control and is Niney one. was that effective and uses hormone blockers to block the egg from going down? I'm not going to even try to say it, but yeah, both control pills have other help benefit such as regulating mentual health and kennys PMS. The shot is taken every three months and can cost up to a hundred and fifty. That's a little. That's a better deal, just saying, compared to like the patch, which is like replace. We can and as hundred you know, and is ninety four percent effective. The shot stops overlation. Saying that wrong. So you're doing good, buddy, and doing terrible but pain with the use of the Gestrian, pedestrian, and he's usually inserted into the butt or upper wrong. A vagable ring is replaced monthly. It is ninety one percent effective and cost up to two hundred dollars. That is in way too expensive. The reason place inside of a Gina and looks the same way. It's the PAT and releasing hormones into the badge in the lining and stop the egg being stops the egg. It goes. No, no, thank you. None of these protected against STI's. We ain't making omelets. Oh my God, it Look Oh God. Okay, so I would just like to say I'm taking my broken role right now and I just you. I just remembered, Um, the pills cost can be reduced to a dollar with insurance. So get insurance. That's true. Oh, it's hi. Turn. Okay, every use. Birth controls are diaphragms, condoms, internal condoms, sponges, spermicide and caps.

Diafragms are eighty eight percent effective and honestly, the kind of suck and they're really outdated and to seventy five dollars. Diagram is a shallow Bendable Cup made of silicone that covers your cervix. It should be used with a spermicide to increase efficacy. Dia frams on their own don't prevent stis and can cause beauties, which is a urinary tractor, or cost toxic, toxic shocks in from here, which is a bacterial infection and can also for when a Tampon is left in too long, or a diva cup. Yeah, because the body absorbs. Yeah, because the body basically begins to absorb computer thing which has back here. Um Condoms are eighty five percent effective. I feel like that's wrong. I hope that's wrong. anyways, and about eighty kind of CO acted or are free at US sexual health clinics. That's true. This fi you can get like a bunch and use lube. Um Condoms are small, thin pouches of latex, plastic or Lambskin, depending on if a person has an out of these. Yeah, that cover the penis and collect seamen. Only latex and plastic condoms can protect against STI's. Internal condoms cost up to three dollars individually and are ninety s Nope, that's wrong. Seventy nine percent effective. I set it backwards. They're also referred to as female condoms, since they are soft plastic pouches that go inside the vagina. They stop sperm from entering the vagina and can protect against stis. SPONGES can cost up to fifteen dollars and can be ninety six to eighty eight percent effective, which is that's actually that seems like quite the big gap. It's a small round sponge of squishy plastic that goes deep inside the vagina to cover the cervix. They have fabric loops that make them easier to take out and contain spermicide. The only brand in the US is called today sponge. They don't protect from Stis, though spermicide is seventy one percent effective and can cost up to eight dollars. Spermicide is a chemical that you put deep in your vagina that blocks the service cervix and stop stirring Nottnot rowms sperm from reaching the egg and once it rhymes, shooting for real. SPERMACIDE doesn't protect from Stis and comes in cream's gels, foamed films and inserts. CAPS should be used with spermicide can cost to ninety dollars and are seventy one to eighty six percent effective. They are similar to diaphragms in their make and shape, but can be left in for...

...up to two days. Lifestyle contract cut do you say that contraceptive life style contraceptives include withdrawal and breastfeeding as both control. Withdrawal is most commonly known as the pull out method and is only seventy eight effective, probably less if you got a week four. It's honestly kind of fifty exactly. How when the penis pulls out of the vagina before ejaculation, however, this is only when paired with another condeceptive and has no protection against stis. Remember that pregnancye called Kenna call when someone's anywhere near the vaginal canal. Obviously, breastfeeding is a form of conceptive. conceptive contraceptive. Contraceptive can only be done when you're actively breastfeeding without the use of Formia, because your body and actually stops overlating. This form of not having not having child can only be done for the first six months of after your baby is born or until you get your period. I okay. I would probably also say abstinence is a lifestyle contraceptive. Yeah, just to add on to that. Hmm, yes, okay. More permanent forms of birth control are sterilization or vasectomies. So it's like the slang term for female sterilization is getting your tubes tied. I don't thing is my mom not sterilized up to me, but still my baby brother, so wild. Okay, anyways, sterilization is ninety nine percent effective. Umber least that one percent last for life and can cost up to six grand. Sterilization is more commonly referred to tying it your tubes. Oh my God, I was ahead of the game. anyways, where the tubes refer to the Philippian tubes, which are the canals that the egg uses to travel from the ovary to the uterus. It does not protect you against Sti's and you will still have your Peeri. Oh, that's the lame. Sorry. And estimated one out of two hundred women can still get pregnant after they're sterilized. So your Jackson, your mom's one out of two hundred? What? And one out of two hundred women can still get pregnant after they're sterilized? You can have this pros reversed. The sectomies last for life and can cost up to one grand and are ninety ten percent effective. The secto these block or cut the tubes that carry sperm, and this is a called this is called a vasectomy because the tubes are called vast difference. You can still ejaculate like normal, but you just won't get any when pregnant. Almost all of the sectomies can be reversed, but it's less likely to work the longer you've had one. Much...

...more say you. That's why I say we make men do it until they get married or, how decide to have children. Facts, but then it can be harder to reverse. Okay, still then, you know, make men, then make men teach men that it's not just a boy thing, like I always being boys. He's they got two choices come in the future. I'm already take me to the doctor now. I'll do it if they tell me too, that much more invasive permanent approach for me, a full hysterectomy, where the uterus and ovaries would be removed from the body. You would have literally zero chance of getting pregnant. You have no womb all. You sure? Okay, are you sure? Also a freak. That can actually lead to developing cancers earlier, and also you can grow mustache from that, because it's like forcing your body to go into menopause. Yeah, so I'm that's actually where it says here. It can be like very serious, can lead to major surgery, like, it can be dangerous. It's a big procedure and like, honestly, if you don't have to, then probably don't do it. We never know what can happen. I like you always have to consult with your doctors, even like for males or people with male genitalia and stuff like. If you're looking into birth control to you want to like talk with your doctors. You want to figure out what's going to work best for you. It's like any other it's like any other sort of kind of health you can do. You know, your own research on an offline plan. Parenthood is an excellent source of information, but your doctors are, honestly, like they should be. Your got people, hundred percent. Yeah, and remember that you should try at least, please try to always speak with your sexual partners about like people who've they've been intimate with the past, any like risks for STI's and substance abuse and always, always, always, ask for consent. Yeah, hundred percent. Know if it's like if it's like a one night stand and it's like, oh, like about getting both control, that one is a little iffy if you're in like a little bit of a romantic attraction. Maybe I'm just thinking like that. Always, the boyfriend's choice to go on both control or not should be more of the goals choice. But if it's talking about Sti's definitely talk to your fader about those and each talk to your partners about those. And also not just substance abuse, but substance use in general. It's kind of just like a hygiene thing,...

...but substance use in general can make things taste weird. Yeah, I think that's all we got for today. Again, that was a heavy topic, but it was a very important topic. was a very sick topic, very suck topic picks our mom topic. Oh I do have one more thing. Men In pop tops, men and then in crop tops. That's it. That's all. Men In made up. But that's a reminder. Guys, I believe you hold this one. You fold the support. You hear it again, your validus, fuck your belts, book as Fuck, bitches, but I think that's all we have for today. So we will see you next week and I hope you have a good week. I hope. Yeah. By guys, by.
