    Do you ask your mate when was the last time she got tested for veneral diseases?

    How do you ask her?

    There is still a 14% chance that one can get a sexually transmitted disease even when they are using condoms.

    SO, how safe are you?

    The direct approach is the best way! No one should be more concerned about your health than yourself!

    Good response Caramelpython.

    It concerns me that more and more of our people are not being careful with their sexual behaviours and habits. It concerns me that we are not doing what we can be doing as a people whn it comes to STDs.

    Why wouldn't a person want to know what they are getting involved IN?

    The sexual secrets in our community could be considered HOMOCIDAL.

    ONce.. again Caramelpython for your answer. It is good to see that their are other men like you and $$RICH$$ that understand the serious of the question.

    I simply ask. You would be amazed at how many men never get checked out at all...some men haven't really seen a doctor in years and that is scary.

    That is terrifying. It should be illegal to have sex without getting tested. LOL

    That is why when I ask a guy that question and if he gets offended that send up RED FLAGS. I even go as far as asking them if they ask the women that they deal with the same question.

    It is illegal to spread certain diseases KNOWINGLY.

    it's a every three month check up for me i do it not only for these reasons but
    for a health body reasons because you can say what another person is really'doing when you working / out or not at home .....Not say a mate will cheat but better safe then sorry

    I think as humans we should get checked or visit our doctor quarterly year round .
    KNOW THY SELF & BODY to the fullness from head to toe.

    YES. A black man here in Washington state was just recently sentenced to prison for having unprotected sex with many woman knowing he had HIV. He did not tell any of the women that he was positive. They said something like 72 people were exposed...due to those women having sex with other people. Some of those 72 who may have been exposed still have not gone in for testing...

    U have 2 nowadays. If they get upset about it, RUN!!!

    Also, it's a good idea 2 go get checked up together so U both will know when the last time their partner got tested personally. Make it a date.
