Condoms during Strap on sex

StrapOnStud StrapOnStud
It seems as if I am the only stud that uses a condom during strap on sex. Other friends of mine always say "What's the point of using a condom she can't get pregnant?" Yeah, that is true. There are still STDs that can be spread, bacteria on the actual dildo can build up if not kept clean. Even though I am in a long term relationship I still use condoms because I want my toys to stay clean and last long. Also to protect my girlfriend from the dildo material. Do you guys use condoms during strap on sex?

If the toy is silicone and can be boiled, you dont have to worry much about a condom. Boil it between uses and youre good to go.

If the material is anything with the slightest porosity, you are being the smart one by using a condom. You are right, it will extend the life of a toy and keep yucky bacteria away.

As Jobthingy said, it really depends on the material of the dildo.

Then again, I could see myself using a condom even on a silicone dildo if I ever wind up pegging my boy.

I always use condoms for the same reasons you described.

We pretty much always use a condom during strap on sex because for us the dildo in question is almost always going in the butt, and for us it makes cleanup easier to just take off a condom that might have poo on it and get rid of that and then remove the dildo from the harness for cleaning than to try and remove the dildo for cleaning without having it touch anything else.

I never have used a condom w/ a toy, but I've heard about it more and more lately. It's a really good idea with porous/semi-porous materials. Even if you wash them every time, things could still spread. Any you're right it probably does help them last longer.

It depends. Condoms are great for all the reasons you listed. If your dildo is made of anything not body-friendly [pretty much anything NOT 100% silicone] it's definitely a good idea. If your girlfriend has no latex allergies and it makes you feel better about using the toy then go for it! Condoms are not only contraception, they're rather handy in multiple situations.

If you have a dirty dildo then you can just walk over to the bathroom and wipe/wash it off in the harness before removing it.

The big two reasons I usually don't use condoms are that they're expensive (and I have silicone/other nonporous toys) and they don't fit very well on large dildos.

It is a great idea to use them. Especially when bringing another person into the bed for a threesome so transfer of bacteria, and deceases does not happen.

Personally, we don't bother because it's an unnecessary extra expense to use a condom every time. If you do use a condom, be sure it doesn't have a silicone based lube if you are using a silicone dildo.

I've put condoms on my strap-ons before, especially if they aren't silicone and can't be boiled.

I can't feel anything with a condom on ...just kidding.
but no I save the money spent on condoms and spend it on new toys. I have a latex allergy so it would just be way to expensive anyway.
haven't had a problem yet!

We always use condoms especially because I am ultra sensitive to certain materials. Before I was in a long-term relationship I always required my partner to have a strap just for us and still use a condom. You never know and there is just too much out there.

I'm a guy, but I always use a condom on my toys (if able). It sure help make clean up a lot faster!

As people have said, it depends a lot on the toy and the use, but there's no reason not to, really, if you find it useful and it makes you more comfortable.

I think it is understandable, especially if more than one person will be using the toy.

That's a valid point to make. Be cautious of bacteria on your toys and wrap them when you should, they'll last longer.

It's a good idea to use a condom even when in a commited relationship. It preserves the life of the toy and keeps away unwanted bacteria. But you should still wash it between uses.

Condoms always with a porous toy or if you are going to share it or use it on different people within the same session.

Otherwise, if it is boilable and only being used with one person between boils, I'd say don't waste the condom.
