i have a potential partner (we are considering sex, in fact, talking about it as an inevitability), now, i dont know her as well as i should; it as come down from her not wanting a condom at all to me insisting on a condom or no sex, (to which she agreed, we are going to use a condom), however, i also would like to get tested, but she doesnt. she claims that she has been tested "no less than two weeks ago", now: would it be considered nosy to ask to see the records? because i listened in health and i read the sexYOUality articles, and i am very aware of my risks. and i really dont want to contract ANYTHING. and if she doesnt pony up the papers, should i just forgoe sex period? im thinking about it. but then again, as every other teen, i really badly wanna have sex. lol. (to be frank)

You should definitely make sure that you see the papers, or talk her into coming with you to get tested as well. Particularly considering that this person encouraged you to not use a condom, I, personally, find it difficult to believe that she would take safer sex seriously enough to get tested unless there were papers to prove it. Asking for the papers isn't nosy. It's smart. If she's serious about both of your health, she won't mind. And if she's not serious about your health (which already seems likely considering how she didn't want to use a condom), then she might not be the right person to have sex with.
