Does Making Love Feel Better And Safe Without Using Protection?
Sept. 13, 2019
What if your boyfriend can't orgasm with a condom on? What comes first for you: pleasure or safety? Or can you have both?
The way to enjoy sex with a condom is getting plenty of variety into your lovemaking. Are condoms a damper? There are ways to maximize your pleasure.
Condoms are one of the only ways to protect yourself from HIV and other STIs, they can also prevent unplanned pregnancy.
They provide a physical barrier between the guy’s semen (cum) and the woman’s vagina. Female condoms are put inside the vagina before sex, while male condoms are put on the penis.
If you want to have sex but you’re unsure about how to use a condom then practise, practise, practise! Take a condom and a banana (or any other suitable object) and try putting on and rolling down the condom. That way you’ll feel confident and ready when the moment comes.
It can be easy to get carried away in the heat of the moment and not use a condom. Talking about it beforehand means you are both clear on what you want.
You may not know the person you’re planning on having sex with very well – you’ll get to know them better by talking about how to protect yourselves from HIV, other STIs and unplanned pregnancy.
If your partner pressures you into having sex without a condom or doesn’t agree to use one then it could be a sign that you’re with someone who isn’t taking care of themselves and doesn’t care enough about you.
Remember that you should never use a condom more than once, neither should you double up, as this creates friction and the condoms could break.
Condoms usually come pre-lubricated, but extra lubrication reduces HIV risk and feels good! If you’re using latex condoms, make sure you use a water-based lube as oil-based lubes can cause the condom to break.
