And it was just the usual swab up the japs eye, no teaspoon required; thanks for your interest.
it wasnt actually in YOUR interest i made my comment, it was in the interest of those that might read your misleading post and be discouraged from attending an STI clinic, under the misguided impression that they might be "encouraged" or otherwise to name their sexual partners.

as Pedant says there, they will ask you non-specific questions about numbers. and your STI test results are confidential, hence why you only get referred to by a reference number, and they wont go contacting any of your previous sexual partners either if they find anything, they will just contact you alone, the responsibility is up to you then whether or not to inform your previous sexual partners.

I just want to clarify that no teaspoon goes up the japs' eye.

i think this grossly misleading statement ought to be clarified.

I would be and have been put off by someone's number. Mine is very low. And I like it that way. I have only had very strong feelings for the men that I have had sex with and have ended up being in love with and having relationships with them. The sex definitely improves too.

I was single for three years between them, and still didn't have sex casually! Just not for me

But when the proverbial hits the fan, it can be used against you!
A relationship where a person would be jealous about my past before I'd even known them, and where they would use honest information that I had discussed with them as "cannon fodder" against me, is not a relationship I would ever want to be in, to be honest.

Safe sex isn't really about numbers. You could have been with only one person in the past, and be riddled as a result! Or you could have had safe sex with twenty people, and have nothing.

And what if he got tested for STIs, etc., and knows his clean (and has records to prove it), then is it okay?

Is that only because you're worried about STIs?

Hey OP, has this poll been adjusted to take into account the "rule of 3"?

Not necessarily, if your under 20 then yes, you are a slut.
If you are over 25 then that's pretty normal.

And who made up that little rule? You? Why is it okay after 25? Why not 22, 23, 24? You can't just make sweeping statements like that.
