GUYS: Can you feel when the condom breaks or comes off?

MeliPixie MeliPixie
I'm not talking about a little rip or prick in the condom, I'm talking about it ripping wide open and being just a ring around the base of your penis, or the whole thing slipping off completely. Here's the story.

Today I had a friend tell me that neither she nor her guy could tell that the condom fell off, and it resulted in him finishing inside of her while she was not on birth control pills. And it made me curious. I certainly can feel the difference between a sheathed penis and one that's not covered, especially when it's just come off, but always really. I mean, lots of guys complain about how sex just isn't nearly as good with a condom on, and my favorite comedian even has a skit about how when a condom breaks or comes off the guy will notice, but try to fool himself into thinking it's still there, it's like "This condom just went into awesome mode!"

My question is for the guys though, because I don't think most women can feel it: Can you really not feel the difference once the condom falls off? Or do you say you can't feel the difference to keep yourselves out of trouble? (Sorry if that's harsh, but I've always had a natural skepticism when it comes to men )

I voted for my boyfriend, who has told me he too can definitely feel the difference. Good thing this hasn't happened to us in a long time. *knocks on wood*

Oh Dane Cook. Yea I can totally tell when it breaks off. Only happened once though. The only way I think you wouldn't be able to tell is if you used a LOT of desensitizing agent for some reason. Which would make no sense if you are already putting on a condom. At that point its just blind robotic thrusting.

Hahaha what an image XD That makes sense to me. Who desensitizes their penis when they're about to put it in a plastic bag, right?! XD

One time the condom fell off and my boyfriend had no idea, but he was drunk. Luckily I saw that it was gone when we changed positions. That was the only time we've ever had a condom fall off (we've never had one break) but I'm assuming that if he wasn't drunk he would have noticed.

Voting for my partner - he can definitely tell immediately if it slips, rips, or comes off. I can tell easily as well.

Wow. 100% yes? That's disturbing for any male who claims they didn't know.
While your "awesome-mode" joke was hilarious, I would not be happy with a guy who continued. You know who will be paying for Plan B!

Right?! This is scary! At least it's only 100% of 8 votes. That means 8 honest guys stumbled across my poll. I mean, it would be a lot worse if like, 800 votes were 100% yes, you know?!

Voting for my boyfriend: It was obvious.
We've only had this happen once. The tip broke and it turned into a ring. There was a loud "popping" noise, too.

@MeliPixie: The first time I used a condom I experienced the "pop" sound when it broke because I didn't know what I was doing and left air in the resevoir. It didn't hurt at all, but it was definitely startling!

That sounds terrifying! I can't imagine how scary it must be to have the equivalent of a balloon popping [italis|around] such sensitive flesh. O_O

I personally couldn't feel anything. Apparently it didn't hurt, just felt like pushing past another hole.

It kinda sounded like when you pop chewing gum inside your mouth.

Well, unfortunately we didn't find out what'd happened until we'd finished, so it was more scary in the "pregnancy scare" sense. But yes, definitely scary!

My guy says that he can feel it tear the moment that it perforates.

As far as I can tell, yes. I wasn't engaged in sex at the time, but I could feel the difference between a torn and intact one

I have had it happen and noticed during rough sex.

I can only speak to the one experience I had with a ripped condom, and I didn't notice...then it ripped right before I came so my mind was elsewhere. I would assume I would if just starting up as it does feel noticeably different to me.
