Engaging in sexual activity involves mutual consent, communication, and understanding. It's important to have open and honest discussions with your partner to ensure a consensual and comfortable experience. Here are some questions that you and your partner should ask each other:


What are your boundaries and limits regarding sexual activities? Are there any specific acts or behaviors that you are uncomfortable with or want to avoid?

Have you been tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs)? Have you had yourself tested for STDs and STIs? What protection methods, such as condoms or dental dams, will you be using? Years ago, a doctor on a TV talk show said, “If you are having sex, you are participating in a high-risk behavior.”

What contraceptive methods are you using to prevent unintended pregnancies? Are you currently using any form of birth control?

Are you at ease discussing desires, preferences, and any concerns or fears? How will we both ensure ongoing communication during the experience?


Are you emotionally ready and willing to engage in sexual activity? Is there a level of trust and connection between us?

Remember, these questions are meant to be open and honest. Communicate in a respectful and non-pressure manner. Permission and ongoing talks are key aspects to a healthy and enjoyable sexual happening.♥
