Sexual history

Explain why (cf nosiness), offer confidentiality

Fear of disappointment/disapproval, parent/authority figure, stigma, genital examination.

Closed questions – curiosity not judgement:

  • Who was it with?  How old is she/he (clarify!).  Regular partner or casual (cf one off, one night stand, other judgemental terms).
  • Did you use a condom?  Did you use contraception (not the same thing)?
  • Did you want to?
  • Did you enjoy it? (!)
  • Do you tend to have sex when you’ve been drinking alcohol
