How do I deal with my partner’s sexual history?

  • Take your time with this. If people have differences in their past, it can bring up a lot of anxiety or shame.
  • If their past has been painful, validate their pain.
  • Sometimes it can be more productive to focus on your sexual preferences in the current relationship instead of what it has been historically.
  • Realize that there is a reason the past is in the past.
  • Everyone has a past – including you.
  • Focus on making the present better.
