Getting into a new relationship — or hell, even just deciding to bang someone new — can be a pretty fraught experience. There’s the whole process of getting to know the person, figuring out all the things he or she does (and doesn’t) like in bed… and, of course, navigating that pesky little discussion about STI status.
STFree is working to make one part of that equation easier with their Safe Sex License. Here’s how it works: you sign up for the license, and get your clinic or private doctor to send your results to STFree. Then, when you meet someone you’re looking to bone, they can call up the hotline and verify that, yes, you recently tested negative.
Of course, knowing the date of someone’s last STI test doesn’t guarantee that they’re STI free — but STFree is very clear that that’s not the purpose of the program. What they’re trying to do is encourage couples to talk about STIs and getting tested, and encourage people to be educated and responsible. And hey, who can argue with that?
