I’ve asked my boyfriends in the past to go get tested at the start of a relationship before having condom-less sex, and its sometimes been hard to convince so I had to be very adamant about it, and really lay down the law.
Has anyone else ever asked anyone to have an STI test? How did they react?

Hi @curiousss not sure if this is super relevant anymore because were sort of stepping out of lockdown in NSW at least #prayfornothirdwave #wearamask #gettested. But…
Something that my partner and I did that helped bring a little bit of spice to our relationship during COVID19 lockdown and isolation period was being a bit more experimental in…[Read more]
@trayl_blayza Too funny… This is not too related to sexual health but just generally I’ve found N95 masks quite good when walking around the city. Theres a bit more space for your mouth so its easier to breath. It also prevents some of the fumes from passing cars from being inhaled. Perhaps this might be the go for sex as well?
PotPlant started the topic Spill the beans. What’s your best or worst dating story? in the forum Sexual Health 3 months, 1 week ago
During the worst date I ever went on the man I met on grindr who turned out to be a cult member. We went for a walk in the park and half way through the date attempted to recruit me to his cult. Needless to say I excused myself and got away from him post haste.
I’m wondering what were your worst dates. Were they through an app? Or an online…[Read more]
A lot of people in my friend groups have had Chlamydia before. I was wondering whether anyone here has had first hand experiences with Chlamydia. It’s a very common STI, and I was wondering what did it feel like? Did you notice it immediately? Did you treat it?
I think men would take it. I think it would be especially helpful because some women experience all sorts of side effects due to the pill. In long term relationships, this would totally help because it would ease some of the burden for women to always take it. However, I think women would still end up taking it more because there would be no such…[Read more]
Canada’s top doctor recently recommended that some individuals should consider wearing face masks when having sex and avoiding face touching and kissing.
How is everyone having sex during this time? Are there any precautions you’ve been taking that you normally wouldn’t? How has it been?

Thanks for sharing, I know these things can be difficult.
This is a very difficult situation you’re in.
You’re not a creep for wanting to develop a sexual relationship with a woman, and although it may feel like no woman would one, many women can and do enjoy more casual sex and friends with benefits. However, clear…[Read more]
It feels like life has been returning to normal in slow motion with restrictions being slowly lifted but also not really… I went out to the pub last week and it has been so strange having to sit at the same table the whole time.…[Read more]
I had this experience the other night where I had to really convince my sexual partner to wear a condom.
He started going on and on about how it was uncomfortable and too tight, and this and that. I had to repeatedly ask (3 times) before he reluctantly did it. After that we got on with it and it was fine…
But I’m wondering. What do you do if…[Read more]
PotPlant replied to the topic Fun (non-penetrative) sexual activities to do with your sexual partner/s? in the forum Sex & Relationships 6 months, 1 week ago
Loving this thread! Definitely think that these sorts of activities can be super enjoyable and facilitate a different sort of intimacy with your sexual partners.
I feel like by having this broader view of sex as not just penetration, we can still enjoy ourselves even when we might not have the energy to go as far with it as we usually would!
PotPlant replied to the topic I’m still a virgin but sorta feel like an odd one out! 😅 in the forum Sex & Relationships 6 months, 1 week ago
Just speaking from personal experience, I don’t think think it’s worthwhile just having sex with anyone just for the sake of not being a virgin. When I was younger I did that and it was not an enjoyable experience!
I think its important to want to have sex because you want to have sex, rather than for the sake of measuring up to…[Read more]
It’s been very awkward! I’ve been using Hinge and people seem even more nervous go out and meet you in person. However, I’ve had some really good and long conversations with people over the app because it seems like quite a few of us are just stuck at home!
My advice would be to use at your own discretion, maybe you’d want to chat with them…[Read more]
I would definitely recommend durex because sometimes if you or your partner have a penis then its good to get the right size condom!
My partner found the standard size condom didn’t fit him too well but we got a different size and now he finds it much more enjoyable.
Just my 2 cents!
I totally agree with this sentiment!
Honestly with the busy hub-bub hum-drum of modern life where we are constantly on the go, it can be so hard to make time for / put the energy into meeting new people or reconnecting with old ones. I’m really craving going out and meeting new people and just social activities in general but I…[Read more]
