When things are getting hot and heavy, the last thing either partner wants to do is sit down and have a serious conversation about their intimate contact lives: past, present, and future. However, assuming the tryst isn’t a complete spur-of-the-moment deed that is sure to be one-night-stand situation, it is important to have “the relationship talk” well in advance, lest one end up with a life-long reminder of this moment of passion in the form of a partner-transmitted infection or unwanted pregnancy. For the record, even if both partners are in favor of a single night hook-up, this is no reason not to use protection – and perhaps even more reason to do so, as such wild spirits may be more likely to have a history of sensual risk-taking, which statistically increases their chance of infection of some type. It is above all important to stay healthy; after all a healthy male organ is important for a healthy reproductive life.
Are they a virgin? A potential partner may seem experienced, but it is better to ask if they are experienced than to assume they are; after all, taking someone’s v-card is a whole different ballgame. A female losing her virginity may experience pain, and even bleeding, so a man will certainly want to know if such a thing is a possibility.
How many other partners have there been? Not only is it wise to know how many partners have been there before, it is a good idea to know how many partners a person has had since their last partner-transmitted infection screen. Remember, when a couple decides to have relations, they are not just sleeping with each other; they are sleeping with every person that partner has been with, and the people their partners were with, and so on and so forth. If any number of those people had an infection, it could have been passed along from person to person.
