The best way is to abstain from sex or practice safe sex. Using a condom correctly and consistently dramatically reduces the risk. The risk can be lowered by using condoms (male or female) every time you have oral, vaginal or anal sex. Don't share sex toys or if you do wash them before use. Don't have sexual relations with anyone infected with the bacteria; since you can't tell who's infected, you both need to get tested before you have sex.

Remember this: a girl who says she doesn't mind if you don't wear a condom, says the SAME THING to every guy she sleeps with. Read: girls who don't use condoms are the last girls you shouldn't be using condoms with.
Use a latex condom to lower your chance of getting gonorrhea.
Make sure you always use protection when having sex
Protected intercourse (prophylactic) or abstinence
