I don't really think unprotected sex is okay outside of something with a marriage-level of commitment (not that you HAVE to be married).

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex pretty soon into the relationship... maybe a month or two? He was a virgin before me, and I had only been with one other person who was also a virgin, so there was no risk of STD's.

Since I've only had one partner all my life, I can't answer this with 100% certainty. The first few times we had sex, we used a condom, and in the two years following it's sort of dwindled down to where we haven't used one in a couple months and before that were several more months of unprotected sex. Most of the time we use withdrawl.

After seeing their negative test results?

Honesty is the best policy on this one. If you care for someone, even if you have only known the person for a month or less, both of you deserve the truth about any potential problems in the safety department.

Voted 'other' because the only reason I can see for unprotected sex is if you're certain the other person is D/D free and you want to have a baby.

I put other because right now, for me, I don't want to have a baby so condoms are a must. As far as STDs go, if I was in a commited relationship with someone and we both had been tested then I would feel fine with not using protection.

I would have to know that they were not sleeping around and that they had an STD test and that they were clean.

It really depends.

I don't think I'd EVER have truly unprotected sex with someone of the opposite sex unless we were actively trying to have a family.

Same-sex is different since although you have to think about STDs, you don't have to worry about makin' babies.

I probably wouldn't feel comfortable until I was married and wanted to have a family

Unprotected, as in no condoms... Probably after we had been seriously dating for quite a few months and we had each gotten tested negative. But I would still take the pill, unless we were actually trying to start a family.

Well, 6 months to a year because that is how long it would take me to be interested in sex with them in the first place.

Definitely marriage or an equal level of commitment.

lots of factors come into play to make that decision

There are a lot of factors to that decision. Time really doesn't matter to me if I don't feel comfortable, or if I do. It's really about how the relationship is progressing.

I'm trying to figure this out now myself (before I even have sex). Maybe I'm thinking of this the wrong way, but I see unprotected sex as having two factors: the risk of STDs and the possibility of getting pregnant.

I am a virgin, so there's no way I have anything, but my guy is not. If he gets tested for STDs and has nothing and I'm on the pill (to cover the pregnancy aspect of the situation) would a condom still be necessary? Granted, I'm aware the pill doesn't always prevent pregnancy but, theoretically?
