Am I the only one concerned about catching STDs? It seems like a lot of people are nonchalant when it comes to hooking up or making out with random strangers. Is it offensive to ask someone about their STD history or when they were last tested? I can only imagine how many people will be thrown off by the questions and take offense to it.
-Do you ask every partner you sleep with about their STD history?
-How often do you get tested?
-Have you ever caught an STD from someone that lied to you about their history?
-If you had herpes, but weren’t having an active outbreak, would you still tell your partner?
Edit: Would you take offense to being asked about your STD history? All of these questions are exclusively for Reddit. I do not approach my partners with these exact questions.
Accidents do happen and I am not shaming anyone for having a STD.
