How to Broach the STD question

Q: I am a very careful guy. I buy my condoms, I have two girlfriends who are both tested and me as well, but when it comes to meeting a new woman the first thing is that she must be tested. My girlfriends do whatever they will do and live in different cities, but I demand they are honest with me, and I think they are. I'm certainly honest with them. I have a new playmate, but I have no idea where she has been. I have health/life insurance and I can show medicals records of no chlamydia, Hep A, B, C, syphilis, herpes, HIV, gonorrhea, genital warts, let's see what else ... What is the etiquette for requesting a woman get tested off the bat? -- STD-Free

So there you have it — the perfect start for the latest little goodie on Ask a Bachelor. Moving forward, I plan on posting funny tidbits — the naughtier, the better — as often as I can in the Daily Dish, as I’m tentatively calling it. So send ‘em if you’ve got ‘em!
