    If you're still getting a urethra swab as a guy you should find a new doctor/clinic and avoid such archaic places, that is old technology which is no longer necessary. Nowadays it's as simple as peeing into a cup and doing blood work if you so chose.

    I believe the peeing in a cup can only be done first thing in the morning(?), and most of the planned parenthood type free clinics still use the q-tip... and it sucks!

    To be fair though its been quite a while since i got tested, but not long enough if the q-tip is still in play.

    For me it'd depend on how long you knew the person and type of person they are, of course its better to be safe than sorry.

    Would never let anyone go without condom unless I'm 100% they're free from STDs.
    You always sounded quite active or had been at some point, thank you for confirming my thoughts.

    Both should get tested, preferably before having sex at all because as said a few times already, condoms aren't 100% effective and you can pass things via oral sex. Herpes and HPV are STDs that condoms don't always protect against, since it can spread to different locations that condoms don't cover, it can also be passed through oral sex, and is often spread when the carrier is asymptomatic.

    Asymptomatic is why you should never take anyone's word for it.

    Very much doubt my bf would be cheating on me though.

    We both got tested quite early into the relationship. Taking someone's words could end badly, as said person might not know that (s)he has an STD.

    ... Of course tested. If their word is good they'll be more than happy to do the test for you. How could they even be remotely offended that you want to be safe. I demand that all the people I date get a test if I feel comfortable enough to proceed sexually in any way with them, and I'm glad I have. As it turned out one of them had apparently gotten gonorrhea. Glad all I did was kiss the guy (closed mouth). Bit of a nasty shock for him, but at least he could go resolve some bad issues with his ex and left me to move on. I am always willing to go get tested with them (but I usually get a test done before I ask so it's on-hand for them).

    I'm just going to sit here with a stern expression, and wait for you to realize the implications of that post.

    When someone on a forum basically says "Yeah I figured you were banging a lot of people".

    The problem is the tests takes to long so you can never be 100% sure, unless you believe in whatever they are saying about it. I mean you can go test yourself then have unprotected sex with random person before the test results are back.

    Condom until I know that they're clean. I have had unprotected sex a few times before with girls I've met on parties, don't think I'll do it again any time soon though.

    My wife and I were virgins so we didn't get tested.

    I'm not sure,

    Everyone I've been with, I know was clean because I know them,

    There was one girl on a Spanish beach when I was pissed though, if that turned into anything I probably would of called the pest control

    If one doesn't talk about these things because of awkwardness or shyness, they really aren't ready to have sex either.

    Hope you got tested and know for sure, since many STDs are asymptotic..

    Because it totally takes a slut to get a STD. Even if you're having sex with someone who's had only one partner who was virgin when they got together, that one partner still could've cheated and got STD from outside the relationship.
    Point is, you can never know for sure until you get tested. Don't fool yourself.

    I've only agreed to sex without a condom aslong as I knew they were free from STDs, such as casual sex with close friends, with ONS it's always been condom or nothing for them. With my boyfriend he was using a condom until both had been tested.

    Well when I first met my GF I did just trust her off the bat. She'd had a test just before we met at any rate it turned out.

    Rubber all the way until we both get tested. I have trust issues so I don't really take "I'm clean" seriously.
