How often do you use condoms?

Batty Harlot Batty Harlot
I'll admit, I'm not always the safest when it comes to using condoms. I've only had sex with one person and we're both clean, so I'm not too worried about catching anything. The only thing I'm nervous about is getting pregnant, and it wouldn't bother me too much if I did. I'd be excited, actually.

I've talked to my friends about condoms, and they seem to be smarter than I am when it comes to being safe. So it made me wonder about other people and how often they use condoms. I made the voting private in case some people were a little hesitant to vote truthfully.

For finishing, always. Never have I not.

To me its not about catching anything. My partner and I are clean; that doesn't matter. It's also not about pregnancy. I'm also on birth control. I'm simply saving it for marriage.

For toys, about half the time.

I've never had to use a condom at this point in my life (female-bodied ex, plus we were both clean and each other's first and fluid-bonded) but I probably will be using them in the future. So I'm the "Other".

Very rarely at the moment, as I'm in a monogamous and well-tested relationship. The rarely is because I personally like them so it's just a little added something for me every now and then. I also use them on a few of my porous toys that I can't let go of. However if I weren't at this level with this partner, it would be an always. In shorter or less serious or even less trustworthy relationships, it's an always for me.

I picked rarely. I'm on birth control pills and we have only ever had sex with each other. We used to use condoms but now we just use them if I'm on antibiotics or missed a pill or something. There was one time before I was on the pill where we didn't use one and he pulled out but I found it stressful since I REALLY don't want to get pregnant. So since then I plan on always using one when I need to.

Never yet. My partner and I are married, and there really aren't any issues that would require them.

I had to use condoms for birth control after hormonal issues with the various pills. I finally have an IUD which is awesome.
When we were using condoms, they were always used for sex....the condom was just part of our play. Now, my b/f always wears a condom for anal.

Never, I'm monogamous with my husband, we're both clean and he's had a vasectomy..so no reason for them.

I never use them because I'm married with no other partners involved and my tubes are tied.

Maybe 30% of the time. I just like something different once in awhile, plus I can last longer for the wife.

I haven't used a condom in a long time. My partner and I both do not like them.

We use condoms only during anal sex or when I use jelly toys...which is very rare. I haven't used a condom in a long while...perhaps I should initiate a little anal sex soon.

I only really use condoms when I forget to take my pills on time. My boyfriend has some problems with condoms, so we really try to avoid them.

My tubes are tied and my husband and I are monogamous. There's no need for condoms in our relationship.

My husband and I always use them for ease of cleanup. I'm on the pill so we're not really worried about pregnancy, I just don't like feeling everything drip back out of me, lol

We always do if he's going to finish in me. We're fluid-bonded but really don't want to get pregnant right now.

Now- never. I'm in a clean, committed, monogamous relationship and I've been on bc for ages. Otherwise the answer would be always. I never wanted to look back in regret thinking that one simple, 15 second act could have saved me loads of heartache.

Never. We are married, monogamous, and he had a vasectomy 13 or 14 yrs ago.

We are each other's first and onliest, we are both clean, but still - we always do use condoms. There would be no need for them if I was on a pill, but - sadly - I can't due to some health issues. It's a bit sad, but has its pros like easy clean-up

Other-I dont because Im on birth control with a long term partner. However I use them on toys.

I haven't been on the pill since before I was sexually active, so my husband and I used to *always* use a condom, no matter what, but that was before we were married, and I was petrified of having to tell my mother that I'd gotten pregnant. Now that we're married, we are a lot more lax about it. We still use them to finish but not before that. I'm a lot like you, LeRave, and am not exactly trying to get pregnant but wouldn't mind if I did.

I dont anymore. I have been in a relationship with the same man for a long time. If however I was casually dating or in a new relationship I would absolutely use them everytime.

I don't use condoms with my Master because he's had a vasectomy and he doesn't like condoms. I will use them if I have other partners but I haven't had a poly partner in over a year.

I dont use condoms. Before my husband and I were married he would pull out, then we got married and I went on BC. Now we are trying to have kids so it would be pretty silly to use condoms. We used condoms once for my 1st time. My husband was is my 1st partner and he's healthy and clean. Neither one of us liked them so we never used them since.
