Condoms are a thin latex cover made in the shape of an erect penis, then rolled and packaged in a plastic wrap or container. For greater protection against pregnancy and disease, you can also buy condoms that are designed to contain the testicles, although they not easily achieved.
Men who are sensitive or allergic to latex can buy polyurethane condoms. Sheep membrane condoms also obtained, but these only protect against pregnancy, not against HIV and other diseases (viruses and bacteria can pass through the membrane). You will know that you have problems with latex if the skin of your penis becomes dry or burns, or you get a rash or irritation.
In general, one size fits all, but if you’re worried that you’re too big or too small for a standard condom, some brands make them in small, medium and large sizes. As another option, you can find them dry or lubricated, with or without spermicide.
Buy only condoms that have a deposit to contain the semen. This deposit reduces the risk of the condom breaking when you ejaculate. Heat weakens condoms, so never leave them in the sun or the glove compartment of the car. Finally, but not least, use only water-soluble lubricants with condoms.
When the latex comes in contact with oil-soluble products, such as hand cream, petroleum jelly, bronzers and cooking oils, it begins to deteriorate in 30 seconds.
Some people growl when they hear the word condom. It is true that condoms can be a nuisance, but they are much better than the consequences of not using them (infections, diseases, unplanned pregnancies). Make sure they are part of the sexual game.
Ask your partner to put it on the way you like it. But first, put a drop of water-soluble lubricant on the tip to increase the pleasure (not too much or the condom could slip). Or research the shapes and textures that are available in the market. If you do not find something that you can have fun with, then you are not using your imagination. Be sure to carefully read the packaging of special condoms because some are designed solely to add flavor to your sex life and provide no protection.
They offer excellent protection against almost everything. They can slow ejaculation. They are easy to obtain and are not expensive. You can carry them in your pocket or a small bag, so you are always prepared. They are available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, textures, and flavors. Sex is still pleasant for most boys and girls.
Finally, keep in mind that they do not protect against all diseases (herpes, genital warts, syphilis, chancroid, molluscum contagiosum and crabs) that can contract from areas not covered by the skin. Its incorrect use can cause pregnancy. They can slip or break during use.
If they are made of with latex, they can cause allergic reactions in some people. They can mean an interruption in spontaneous sex. Many boys and girls reduce pleasurable sensations during sex. It takes away the fun of oral sex for anyone who does not like the taste of latex (an edible lubricant can help). Requires action as ejaculate (you have to remove it, which means you can not relax in your partner’s arms). A small percentage have manufacturing defects.
