So I don’t think those free condoms universities hand out suck as much as guys say they do.
Okay, but seriously. If you’re ever considering sexy times with a guy and he tells you that he can’t wear a condom there is a 100.3% chance that he is a liar, and you should definitely not have sex with him. Don’t have sex with liars. Have sex with a cute honest people that bring you ice cream the next morning. Liars do not bring you ice cream. And if they do it’s ice cream made of lies. Ice cream made of lies is very emotionally unfulfilling. Don’t trust liars or their disease-ridden ice cream.
that was the best safe-sex talk ever.
Why I am suspicious of those who say they got pregnant because a condom “broke”…
HAVE ANY OF YOU EVER USED A CONDOM. HAVE ANY OF YOU HAD SEX YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CONDOMS. SHUT THE FUCK UP. I’m sick of this shit. Just because a condom has a tensile force high enough to withstand inflation does not mean it can comfortably fit any penis. No one wants latex literally stretched against a boner like it is in this pic. A condom that is too small causes added friction which can lead to the condom tearing. If someone tells you it is too small, you LISTEN. YOU DO NOT HAVE RAW SEX WITH THEM. THAT IS NOT WHAT I AM SAYING. YOU GO BUY A MAGNUM. There are even sizes above that. SO NO THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO SAY THAT A PERSON CANNOT WEAR ANY CONDOMS BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT FIT IN CERTAIN SIZES. And whoever the fuck said they don’t believe condoms break is literally fucking stupid as hell. You didn’t even try to think you slut shaming ignorant ass. Condoms do not break from things not fitting in them. They break due to frictional forces without sufficient lubricant and air bubbles trapped in the reservoir tip that push through the latex upon ejaculation. Proper application requires that the tip be pinched to remove this air while it is rolled down the shaft. Very few people know this due to the rampant lack of appropriate sex ed. Proper condom application technique and education is crucial to effective birth control and STI protection. So before you go spouting your ignorant crap, how bout you think about your penised partner and the overall function of a condom and try to spread real education rather than shaming people.
Most guys dislike condoms because there is less sensation. I’m not defending not wearing a condom, but…yeah. Just sayin’.
If men are going to expect women to have sex with them when they couldn’t find a clitoris with a GPS, they have no right to complain about a millimeter of latex “reducing their pleasure.”
I’m not fond of dudes who push for bareback when they have problems with condoms, but there is more than one solution.
For background: The overwhelming majority of guys who have problems with condoms are circumcised. Male circumcision takes away a lot of things from the penis, including thousands of nerve endings in the penis, some of the most sensitive areas of the penis are lost/damaged, AND leaves the head (which is a mucous membrane and supposed to be covered) bare. Over time, the glans penis becomes dried up and extremely desensitised because of this. The penis is supposed to provide lubrication to both partners, and studies show that circumcised men have sex differently (more roughly, primarily) than intact men.
I have never met an intact man who had a problem with sensation in condoms, even when older.
So. What you can do:
* Try different condoms. Some guys with sensation problems find condoms with things like bumps and other “sensation adding” things better.
*I also learned a neat little trick. You need to have the right kind of condom and condom-safe lube, but you put just a little drop of lube into the tip of the condom before you roll it on. It provides extra sensation for the dude who finds condoms difficult.
*You can also try extra thin condoms.
*Try different brands. If I didn’t have a very large condom collection, I’d stick to Mates Skyns, as I find them the best for the widest range of people (including me).
*Or, if you’re only concerned about pregnancy and not STDs, you can try lambskin condoms. One of my partners, who is circumcised, found those really nice and were the only condoms he could wear. Not that we used condoms often. These condoms are also my favourite, but these days I’m more concerned about STD protection than pregnancy prevention…
Failing that, obviously any man/penis-person should learn at some point that there’s more to sex than just penis-in-vagina/anus banging, and you should, of course, enforce your boundaries.
If you were in a relationship with the person having condom troubles, and none of those options worked, I would suggest talking to him about foreskin restoration. It can’t restore the lost nerves or structures on the penis, but it can help give more sensation.
And that’s my soap box, lol.
