condom vs. natural?

Cherry21 Cherry21 11/13/2011

So what do we all prefer, and why? While condoms obviously have their good pints (birth control, std prevention), I know many people who just don't use them because of the feeling it gives or takes away from. so whats your opinion, and do u know any people like this?

My husband and I have used condoms in the past, and I've used them with other partners, but we have been fluid bonded for more than 20 years, and use withdrawal as a bc method. I'm allergic to latex, and finding (and paying for, as we often have sex once or twice a day) non-latex condoms in a Large is difficult.

If we weren't fluid bonded, or either of us had an other partner they would definitely be used by us.

If it's just protecting against pregnancy, sure. But those do NOT protect against std's/sti's.

Bareback if I'm in a stable long-term relationship (and am of course using other birth control), but condoms until the relationship becomes stable. Without condoms just feels better for so many reasons, but I wouldn't risk it with someone I don't know is clean and do not have a solid relationship with.

I also dislike condoms, and being with a steady partner and on birth control I don't really worry about them. They sure do make clean up easier though!

When I was in a steady relationship with a guy, we used Crown condoms until I got on birth control, and when that made me crazy, we went back to Crown. Those are the only condoms I'll use.

I've never not used condoms, even with a steady partner. So far hormonal birth control has too many side effects for me, so I'm okay with condoms.

I have always hated condoms! We don't use anything, but we're married and have been for together for 6 years. He hasn't been with anyone else, but he knows that he can, as long as he uses condoms with them (may be part of why he hasn't...he hates them too) he also had a vasectomy, because after 6 kids, we're done having babies.

We are waiting to get the okay post vasectomy. In the meantime however, I had found an incredible brand by durex called 'Avanti bare'. So good, we had to keep checking to see if it was still on! My husband and I both love skin on skin bareback and this is the closest to it we have found. These are non latex and smell somewhat pleasant. One of the nicer features of this brand is that we can feel each others temperature more and it has little to no resistance like latex. We used to use only Durex's sensitive brand but I don't think we will ever go back to those should the need ever arise. After all, we are 10 weeks and two sperm free specimen checks away from safe, bareback. Can't wait...

I've tried the crown brand as well. But we have found a new, awesome one made by durex, called 'Avanti Bare'. I like that they can easily be found at Walgreens so we're not ordering them online anymore. If you are going for a nothing feel, try these.

Less Pregnanty is good. Until my tubes are cut and cauterized (yes, they can do that, they just usually choose not to as it's less reversible.) there will be condoms for all sexual activity.

I prefer no condoms in cases like the one I'm in, where I'm on an alternative form of birth control and with one partner in a mutually monogamous long term relationship.

We both get tested once a year, even if neither of us has strayed from the relationship or shows any signs of a symptom of anything. We just do it because it's the responsible thing to do, and even if you trust your partner, you never know, and again, it's the responsible thing to do lol.

If you get the right condoms, like lambskin you can't feel anything. Also if your partner is really good sexually it shouldn't matter that you can barely feel the condom.

I agree I hate latex condoms, more because I think I have a mild latex allergy and the after effects are not fun. But keep in mind lambskins are not as effective in preventing the spread of a number of STD's as latex, just remember if you are going to use them make sure you have STD testing done!

Sorry the nurse in me had to point that out!

Condoms are a necessity for me because I react really poorly to hormonal BC, and we're not ready for kids yet. Unrelated plus - easy clean-up.

Condoms are much safer when it comes to STD's than their counter part, barebacking. They also protect against any pregnancies. Yet many people feel that they hinder the sensations of sex, or they are too much to worry about while sex (seeing if they ripped, slippage, etc.).

I definitely think having sex with a condom feels different. I like to feel skin on skin.

I've never had a condom rip or slip. I honestly feel little difference between having a condom and not having a condom, by such I just prefer the condom outright. The sensation is the same and I don't make kids.

Barebacking, or not using a condom, can feel great. But it can also be dangerous if you're not sure of the person you're sleeping with, or if you're unsure if you're ready to be a parent.

Yes there are a lot of risks if I don't know the person well I will use a condom. I also get tested and would want my partner to as well. But I am not the kind of person to go out and sleep around either. Just to much stuff out there these days.
