When’s the last time you were tested for HIV?

But I’m not.

I’ve always been monogamous. When my first boyfriend and I started to sleep together in high school, I insisted that we get tested for HIV. That insistence hasn’t changed. I’m all about safe sex — as a single mom, I’m especially absolute when it comes to getting a man’s health stats. Are you?

I’m an affectionate, all-over kind of woman — and, well, things have been heating up with the Biologist. We recently had “the talk,” and it was probably the easiest I’ve ever had. As you might know, these things can be a little awkward. I mean, it’s not like we’re talking about peanut allergies.

But it was a picnic: we were both composed and present. We simply spoke the plain, honest truth about our past relationships. We even talked about going to get tested together (mmm, what a turn on!), but due to our different health insurance policies, we decided to go solo. By chance, we got our blood drawn the same day.

P.S. Oh, we also agreed to get the full STD round-up, too… Ready to roll.

I know this can be a sensitive topic, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please log in anonymously if you want.

Tell me about your experiences re: “the talk.”

How do you bring up HIV and STDs? Have you ever gone with your guy/girl to get tested together?
