Is it okay to ask your boyfriend about his sexual history? *e.g. How many girls he's been with?* I wanna know but I'm kind of afraid to just bring it up in a casual conversation. We've been dating for over a month now and we've already had sex but I was wondering if it was okay if I asked him about it...

YES! It is very much okay to ask your boyfriend about his sexual history. In fact, I would advise that you do. Especially since you two are having sex, it would be a good idea to sit down and have a talk about all that kind of stuff (past partners, STDs, etc.).

As far as your awkwardness about bringing it up goes, I think it's easiest to lead into a 'sex chat' with a classic "Snugglemuffin? I think we need to talk..." Of course you may replace Snugglemuffin with any name or petname of your choice. :)

It's encouraged to do so. Communication is very important and so is honesty in the relationship.

My partner and I talked about sex and our histories early on in our relationship for our future knowledge should we decide to have sex.

I want to tell you though, regardless of how many girls your partner's had sex with or done things sexually with, don't get jealous. He's with you now. He loves you. You guys are together now. If you guys should proceed into having sex together, or doing sexual things, it's all about you guys and being in love. Don't compete with the past. Focus on you guys and enjoy in the moment. That's my two cents!
