Tammie Tse 1 Homework #2 Part 1: Interviews Interview Tammie:   Ok… so how easy or difficult is it for you to talk with a sexual partner about using  protection? And you could also elaborate as much or as little as you want, however you see fit  to answer the question. Interviewee:  I find it not difficult at all. If I want it bagged, it’s going to get bagged. Albeit, I'm  really the less responsible one in this department; for me, it isn't about controlling STDs, but  about stopping conception. Tammie:  Mm, so diseases have never been a problem for you? Interviewee:  No, because I'm not really a promiscuous person and I know my sexual partners --  or at least, their sexual history pretty well before the deed happens.  Tammie:  Ok, so it seems like your partner would be the more confrontational one in this matter  since you're not the responsible one? Interviewee:  Yes. If for instance my birth control is out, since that's the method of contraception  I use, and I have to switch to condoms, I'm the one that might say, “Who cares, let’s just mess  around.” And if that were to happen, I wouldn't necessarily always be able to control my urges. Tammie:  Haha, I guess that moves into, how do you usually ask about protection? I guess in  this case, your partner. Well, it seems very different in your case, so how about the first time or  your experience at the beginning. Interviewee:   Haha, if I were in a situation with a new partner, I would want to use protection,  and I would probably pull it out before things got too hot and heavy, you know? It would be less  tempting to have a laissez-faire attitude that way. Tammie:   And how do you respond if your partner resists? Interviewee:  Hmmm, if it was a stranger or someone I didn't know very well, I probably would  insist and if they simply said no I would say, “Well, too bad.” As a sexually active member of
