3 months we came home from a party and fell tipsily into bed after I met my now-boyfriend. Through my boozy haze, we unexpectedly saw without a condom, which sobered me up, quick that he was about to go for it. “Hold on,” we stated. “What’s occurring right right here?”
I’ve been on birth prevention since my belated teenagers, but will always be spiritual about making use of condoms unless I’m in a monogamous relationship. (the language of my aunt, a nurse that is ob-gyn, are burned into my brain: “Never get near that area unless it is wrapped up.”) We knew i truly liked this person, and had been getting reciprocal vibes, but there was no talk of emotions or games. But this specific postparty event type of forced the matter. “Does this you’re that is mean sleeping along with other individuals?” we asked. He stated yes, so we confirmed that people had been now exclusive—physically and emotionally. We dug this development, regardless of if the means it unfolded had beenn’t precisely romantic.
