My own answer:
In the absence of prior suspicion of an infection I'm content with a verbal "I got mine back and they're fine." I believe that if I can't trust someone enough to be honest with me about their results that I shouldn't be involved with them. Of course this requires me to only date people that I think I can trust, but I'm ok with that limitation.
Thanks for your participation!
I ask for them, and I give them readily.
Trust or not trust, it doesn't matter. I have done it equally with everyone I am intimate with.
