Not sure if this is already a post somewhere on EF, but I'm really curious to know.

I have not had the need to wear one in over 15 years as I am married and have since had a vasectomy, but many years ago I had one break.

We had one break once, but we caught it before he came, so it was all good.

Haha, no, though I'm terrified of it! We use them properly though so it's unlikely. ^^

I think it's a myth, personally.

While hanging out at Denny's after a 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' performance, one of the girls opened up a condom and put it on over her foot and leg, all the way up to her thigh. Not a single tear, even with the ballet flats and fishnets she was wearing.

A friend and I also once decided to use them as water balloons, and began to fill our first one up in the bath tub. The sonofabitch filled the entire tub before it burst.

And our smooth as velvet insides manage to break them while being worn by something that will never be larger than a breadstick? Doesn't scan. Use another form of birth control and be more discriminate about partners.

I've only ever had one break in 7 years, but it wasn't a big deal because I was on the pill as well. My freshman year of college one of the girls on my hall had to get the morning after pill around 3 or 4 times in the first semester before she decided to go on the pill. I find it very hard to believe that the condom broke that often in a few months so I'm guessing they either had no idea what they were doing with them, they got a defective batch, or she was just lying and saying the condom broke when they didn't actually use one.

Back about 18 years ago we had one break but I kept it in my wallet for awhile before hand. Have not had one break since then.

Chilipepper, that is funny. However, they will break. I have personally had it happen as noted above many years ago. For all I know they have improved in the years since. However, I have a personal anecdote to share that is non-sex related. I work in the theater industry. It is very common in live performance for the wireless mic packs that the performers wear to be covered by condoms (non-lubricated). This keeps sweat and other moisture out of the mic packs. I keep a case of 1000 non-lubricated name brand condoms in my mic case for this usage. We swap out the condom on the mic every performance. Thus, for a regular show that goes on for 6 shows daily plus a week of dress rehearsal, we go through a lot of condoms. It is standard and routine for at least 1-2 condoms to tear while we are pulling them on these small, smooth plastic boxes. Granted, the boxes a tad bigger than a penis or a vibrator but not much. They really can tear/rip not from usage but because of a slight catch on a fingernail or other thing, or sometimes from no apparent reason at all.

I've never actually had one break, but twice when I was riding my partner cowgirl style, I had the condom slip off inside of me.

Thanks to a vasectomy, we almost never use condoms (although, we do when we're playing with others!)

I haven't had one break yet, and hopefully I won't have it happen anytime in the future either.

I definitely appreciate this story. Seems, besides 'catching' on something from the outside, that it might actually be a lube issue.

I've had very limited partners (and know their sexual history better than they do), and have hardly used condoms because I'm on the Pill. The few times I've used them were sort of 'meh' encounters by the end of it, and none broke.

It's definitely something that will be on my mind for a bit... until I put on the next condom!

we used condoms for about 5 years. it has been along time since we have used one. But we never had one break or come off while using. I have a hard time understand how a condom can break when used properly. But I guess stuff happens.

Decades ago, as a teen..was very scared till my monthly little friend came to visit. I was never regular so it was a LONG period of "sweating it out". Not fun. Funny how time changes things however. Years later, that same "stress" came from waiting each month, HOPING no little friend would come and doing all things possible to GET pregnant!!!!

Anything made by humans can and will break sometimes. Condoms are no exception.

Not a myth..believe me. We too made water balloons, and yes, these are tough little devices, but give them a little heat and stress..especially the THIN, THIN "great feel" kind and POP....they DO rip. Been there...personally.

It happenned once. I was on the pill and both my guy and I had been tested for STD's. It was just an extra precaution but it wasn't that necessary.

Only once so far thankfully, but it freaked me out when it happened.

There's bound to be a defective condom every now and then just like everything else man made.

It didn't break but I kept going once long after I had ejaculated and the combination of that inside it and it shrinking back to normal size made it come off all together.

Nope, I have never had this happen, thankfully.

That's true. I've had two break and I'm more than positive they were used properly. It was during intercourse and lube was used. No catching was involved. I think it's a manufacturing issue. Any item mass produced in a factory has a chance of being a defect, just not often.

I've had multiple breaks and a few slip off in side of me; just a trade off for having a lot of rough sex. Thankfully I haven't caught anything thus far in my life. ( :

I broke several but never during sex. I was experimenting with oils and testing the stretchiness. If your dick is dry it shouldn't slip. If you use proper lubrication, then it shouldn't rip. I see no way of that happening with proper use. How on earth does it happen?

I've never personally had one break during use, but we have had a few that have torn as he was tearing them off. I have a friend that breaks condoms if there's not enough lube, and it's happened to her numerous times.
