Condoms have been used for years as a way to protect against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Usually, they are made of latex although some are made of animal skins. They are the most popular method of birth control for people who are not in committed relationships.
How to Put on a Condom:
One should always practice putting on a condom before they have to. Condoms should be rolled down the length of the shaft. One should make sure that it is firmly in place before they have sexual intercourse.
One can find free condoms in their local health centers, hospitals and schools. Some places, like Planned Parenthood have budgets that allow for the distribution of free condoms and other forms of protection.
Condom Size Chart:
One should always use the proper sized condom. Every individual should test out several styles and sizes and styles of condoms before they decide which one to use during intercourse.
Sex With Condoms:
Some people think that sex with condoms diminishes the pleasure of the experience. However, condoms make sex as safe as it can possibly be. For this reason, people who are not in committed relationships should always use condoms as a way to protect themselves.
There is no condom that can be considered the best; there is only the best condom for each person. Some men find that a particular brand or style is the most effective for them, while others do not care what kind of condom they use. Some are allergic to latex, making lambskin the preferable condom, while others will only use latex.
A ribbed condom gives a different sensation than a regular one. They are considered to be very good for sexual stimulation. There are raised portions on ribbed condoms that circle it.
A condom catheter is also called a Texas catheter. It is called a condom catheter because it looks like one. Essentially, a condom shaped bag is put on the penis to cover it. It is then attached to a tube that is attached to an even larger bag. This bag holds the urine from the catheter. There is a high risk of infection when it comes to using this type of catheter.
Information in studies vary when it comes to a condom's effectiveness at guarding against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Some say that when used correctly, condoms are 95 percent effective. Others say that they are only about 84% percent effective. No matter what the actual percentage is, male condoms remain the most effective weapon against protecting against sexually transmitted diseases.
Many condom commercials give the impressions that using a condom will enhance sexual pleasure. Some people find that condoms diminish sexual pleasure, while others see no difference or do find that it enhances it. No matter what the condom actually does for one's sexual pleasure, it is one of the only methods of protection that is highly effective against both sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.
