How to Have the Big Talk: STD’s, STI’s and Proper Etiquette

How to Have the Big Talk: STD's, STI's and Proper Etiquette

Exposing your sexual health and history to someone new is very vulnerable. Getting tested, asking a partner about their past and sharing your feelings are difficult territories to navigate. Since most of us feel uncomfortable even thinking about it, very few of us possess the wherewithal to have a mature conversation and make the right choices. We’re put off and grossed out by disease, but then in the moments when it counts, we don’t do a whole lot to prevent transmission. Sometimes we make mistakes that we regret. This episode pulls out all the stops on how to handle yourself in the most delicate of situations, including how to share and receive good and bad news and life after bad news.
