    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    just found out that i have herpes. I told my mate. He said that he went to get tested and his results came back negative. We have been sleeping together unprotected for nine months. Is that possible?

    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
