    I think there is quite a bit of idealistic moralising here. As I said, I did admire my girlfriend's up front honesty on this and when I researched this sti, it is not such a risk or indeed big deal. But I imagine that a lot of people have some low risk sexual skeletons in the closet - perhaps of the order of slightly careless encounters - which are put to the back of the mind rather than easily shared with a new partner. Also in relationships I think both parties have a responsibility to weigh up the risk, to ask questions and to make a decision when unprotected sex is appropriate. I agree that it was encouraging on this matter that many replies offered some advice rather than a tirade of condemnation.
