If you should happen upon anything, please send it along.
[edited - posting your e-mail is against the board rules]
I'm interested in collecting any and all related information
about a phenomenon not studied by public health officials
that's going on... potential sex partners getting tested
TOGETHER BEFORE having sex and sharing their tests results... for sexually transmitted infections. The strategy of I'll get tested TOGETHER with you BEFORE we have sex.

(It's against the board guide lines to post your email).

Per your study, you could always ask on part of this forum for people to reply with their own experiences, as a type of poll. You could ask why they do it, if they've done it at all, if they haven't why not, why is it important to them to do so, etc. You could also contact a clinic and ask to speak to a doctor to gather some more information (if he's allowed to share details about his patients).

My current partner (and the only partner I've ever had, for that matter) have not gone to be tested at all. For various reasons, such as the fact we had never even kissed anyone before starting to date and we know no one who has STDs (or many who are sexually active for that matter), many people have said it would not be likely we have STDs.

Other people will have different results. Ask around [Smile] .

Hi Don,

While I appreciate that you're trying to get your message out, Scarleteen doesn't need your special brand of spam. You can stick around and participate in conversations if you'd like, but just reposting information about safer sex like you do on Usenet is going to get you banned.

Thanks!

Erin

a.
How would you know your partner has never kissed anybody
or violated your nonstated agreement about fidelity?

b.
How would your partner know that about you?

Many partners have stated that about themselves.
We have know way of knowing it to be true.
People who claim to be truth tellers can turn out to have forgotten
People who claim to be truth tellers can in fact have suppressed memory
People who claim to be truth tellers can in fact be liars.

c.
How do they know anything about their partner in this regard?

Spontaneous urethritis can be passed along to a sex partner.
Passage through the birth canal can result in asymptomatic
infections.

pathogens that can be passed along during sex
. chlamydia
. ureaplasma urealyticum
. trichomonas vaginalis
. herpes simplex virus
. adenoviruses
. haemophilus vaginalis
. mycoplasma genitalium
nonsexual ones that can cause nongonococcal urethritis NGU
urinary tract infections
. bacterial prostatitis
. urethral stricture
. phimosis
. catheterization
[Eek!]

Listen up, whoever you are...spamming our boards is NOT amusing and will not be tolerated. Registering a new screen name so that you can continue to post here when you have been asked not to do so is NOT cool. So your posting privileges will be removed, again. And if you continue this behavior, your IP will be reported for harrassment.

If you are conducting some kind of legitimate research and would like permission to do so here, then you need to contact our board founder via email and ask for permission. You can reach her at boards@scarleteen.com
