Safe sex in erotica

One of the criticisms I received recently about my work is that my characters don't use condoms. There's a reason behind this: Fantasy sex is ultimately the safest sex. These stories are basically my fantasies and in the fantasy worlds I create, there are no STDs or STIs and no one ever has to worry about getting knocked up if they don't want to be. There's also so much semen consumption one might imagine that my fantasy come tastes like maple syrup but I stop short of making such descriptions. I can appreciate the desire for other authors to want to promote responsible behavior but for my own purposes, I'm not really getting on any soap boxes in this particular genre of writing. I just want to see my characters engaging in consentual activities for their own fun and pleasure and the voyeuristic enjoyment of myself and my readers.
