Focusing on the trust and intimacy you're building with your partner, rather than worrying about unplanned pregnancy or contracting a sexually transmitted disease, lowers your anxiety level and makes your sexual experiences more fun. Kissing and orgasms both increase the level of oxytocin, a chemical our brains release that causes us to feel good and helps build long-lasting attachments.

Keep a positive attitude about safe sex -- if you go into the experience expecting it to be less than stellar because it's safe, your attitude itself may ruin your fun.
