    How often do you guys get tested for STDs, or do you/have you?

    Personally, I'm tested every 3-6 months, depending on how much playing I've been doing.

    Every 3 to 6 months is the best amount of time in my opinion. If you're more active then get tested more.

    any time we have a "party" I get tested before and after. Thats the rules to play with me and my husband you have to have been tested within 10 days lol. So that kinda rules out the surprise threesomes lol

    They weren't really testing much 30 yrs ago, most you could really get could be cured with a shot or shampoo. Been monogamous for about 30 yrs now and never been tested.

    Once a yr for me, and I've been monogamous/same partner for 9 years. If something comes back positive, then he's got some explaining to do. All my tests come back negative :) thankfully, as expected.

    Does that include partners/couples that you party with on a regular basis? Do you have a 'circle of trust' for spontaneous get togethers? But I know that's not something you want to mess with...

    We have a couple that we trust to the ends of the earth and back but for the most part that's it. And there have been plenty of guys who either say screw that its to much trouble. And that's cool with us cause it shows us that he wasn't mature enough to consider or point of view. And we have had guys that have shown up with out the paper work and then get all pissed off when we send them packing.

    Actually, it's "kudos." ;)

    But yeah, I was asking because of the writing and spelling.

    So do you only do guys, or do you bring girls in as well? (Apart from the aforementioned trusted couple). And do you require the same testing from the girls?

    Yes we have brought in girls on occasions and yes the same requirements went for them also. That's why we prefer couples its just so much easier. ( hope I used correct grammar on that. )

    Confused...Why are couples easier? Or are you referring to your trusted couple?
