Do you think about that aspect of checking your health?

My late teens were late 80's early 90's and no one could escape what the new sexual disease HIV/Aids. With no reason I regularly tested to make certain I was okay to date but then go married, got older and was not chancing life and just put it off.

When I decided to internet date I did have a normal check but not the full check for sexual transmitted ( now rectified) . Now Chlamydia is the big thing as it can be so underlying.

Do you sexual health checks?

I do. I seem to recall a similar thread last year. . I do think everyone should get tested at least once a year. Obviously not those who have had no sexual encounters. Some things are better nipped in the bud.

I don't think about it much as I go through long periods of celibacy lol!
I've only ever been tested once for everything last year as I had concerns about the person I was seeing.
It was all good though!
I won't worry about it until I have another sexual partner, probably about 5 years from now!!

After a while having a number of small umbrella's opened inside your Japs eye then pulled out can become a rather pleasurable experience. So I heard.

As mentioned in last years post I was tested three times last year. I am a big nanbie pambie. Blood samples, urine sample sample under the foreskin, yes I have one, very popular with americans they are, and yes a quick nick (not of york i hasten to add) with a cotton bud from the pizz slit. Also another swab from the throat which is swirled over an agar plate. A look around your genitals for warts and crabs. I guess men who are passive in anal, have to go in the styrrups and have tests up there like women. I will ask a pal. I dont do that myself, as it hurts like buggery!

I had that problem earlier with logging off and on etc. Just a glitch I think. I dont think it sounds like the OP is shagging all and sundry just testing the waters to see how many of us are getting checked for a pox when over 40 and I think it has been good as an aide memoir for us all to take our health and well being seriously. There is an increase of syphallis, or however it is spelled, in Nottingham and it's certainly not my fault! A colleague of mine had not had sex for nine years and after one session got a dose of Clamydia (can't spell, won't spell!) so it is good to go. . . To an aside, I have a pal who works in a school and a girl there has the name Clamydia, what a lark. . I can only guess the parents thought it sounds so posh!

This is an interesting post and does apply to those in their late 30's too. I like to date older guys usually about 10-12yrs older. I'm in my late 20's and remain celibate (until i date someone) exclusively. I'm update to date with sexual health issues. The guys I date are not promiscuous and i'm guessing because of their age, they've been there and done that and are looking for exclusive relationships?

But some guys I've dated have been aloof when it comes to STI's and contraception. Not all guys at that age are closed off to that sort of thing but my gentleman friends have been. Depending on the man regardless of age, if he's not sexually active or has little interest in sex, he will go a while without sex and anything associated with contraception and STI testing, is put on the back burner and forgotten. At least that's what i've found with my relationships. One late 30's guy I dated did not have condoms at his house and was embarrassed and annoyed when I questioned this.

anyone not well versed in what used to be a part of a STD test for a male. It did include a number of Umberella's down the Japs eye. Maybe I am one of the few who has been careful for a very long time? ;-)
