Overcoming Common Condom Problems
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are still a major issue today. In the U.S. 50,000 new cases of HIV occur each year. But that isn’t the only STI to watch for, one in six Americans ages 14 to 49 have genital herpes. There is even a strain of treatment-resistant gonorrhea going around. One solution, condoms are easy to use, give great protection and are widely available. But many guys have problems using them. The truth is most of these problems are easy to overcome. In fact, lots of guys have happy, fulfilling sex lives while using condoms. Just a little knowledge can help any guy get over the frustration this method can cause. Here are some common condom problems and how to overcome them. Some guys hate having to stop in the middle of things to look for a condom. Why not place them all over the house? That way, there’s always one right in arm’s reach. Instead of stopping the action, make putting one on a part of foreplay.Have your partner put it on you. Or engage some sexy talk as you put it on, telling your partner how good they look and what you’re going to do to them.
One of the most common complaints is the inability to feel anything while wearing one. Luckily, there are lots of options on the market today. There are ultra-thin condoms. Another option is the polyurethane variety. This transfers body heat which can add sensation. If this doesn’t work for you, seek out an Okamoto condom, the thinnest kind allowed by the FDA. Another common complaint is the lack of friction. Most guys are familiar with “ribbed for her pleasure.” But there are ones that stimulate the man too. Some guys say the condom they use doesn’t fit right. But there are so many sizes, shapes and varieties on the market to choose from. Do a little research and see which option is best for you. Why not grab your partner and go shopping for condoms together? There are flavored ones, numbing ones to make you last longer and even condoms that glow in the dark.
