Condom or No Condom?

briluminary briluminary 08/12/2011

I personally don't prefer my boyfriend wearing condoms, I think it takes away from the experience and makes it feel a bit less romantic.

We like condoms because even though I'm on birth control, we feel safer! At 18, we can't take any chances! We're both pretty paranoid!

Does "Yes" mean you like sex with a condom? Or does it mean you like sex without a condom?

I can't really answer the poll because I don't understand how you set it up. Your question was "Do you prefer sex with or without a condom?" And then the answers were "yes" "no" and "sometimes" for a question that couldn't be answered with a yes or no because you set up TWO questions, opposite of each other in the same sentence.

Confused.

I prefer sex without them, but recognize the necessity of them. I'm not on birth control and would prefer to stay that way, and my partner has absolutely no problem using a condom. We used to start sex without one and then put one on, then I had a minor pregnancy scare and we decided pre-cum was still too big a risk.

I'm sorry, I feel so dumb asking, but what does "fluid-bonded" mean?

It means that you share your fluids, you do not practice safe sex since you are together.

I hate condoms with a passion, but that's because I've tried tons and tons of different kinds and I've yet to find one that I'm not seriously allergic to. Being monogamous with my partner (4 years come Halloween) sure helps too.

I wear them when I'm not in a relationship but I'm currently engaged and we have been tested and get tested together ... so I do not use them ... we are getting married and take it very seriously so neither of us have fears of STDs and I'm on birth control and even if we were to get pregnant it would be okay! This is only my personal opinion though

Of course I like no condoms better, but I get paranoid even being on the Pill. I want kids with him, just not yet. But hey, even if no condoms is better it still is amazing with them! I'm really thankful I have a man who feels the same way.

That being said we only use them if I'm on antibiotics.

I love them because I'm not sterilized yet and I always insist on two methods of birth control. (I also insist on them for anal) Once I'm sterilized, we'll still use them for anal and during ovulation just to be safe.

They smell bad, and though the difference is not too severe it feels a lot better without them! (Not to mention more freeing, less hassle before the action ;3) But obviously, if I were to miss a pill and wanted to have sex before I was safe again, I'd use them. The only reason I don't use them is because I'm on the pill.

They tend to cause icky chafing. I'm on the pill and only having sex with one partner right now so we aren't using them.

I chose sometimes. I wouldn't mind not using a condom, but he insists. We are only with each other, but he doesn't want any pregnancy.

The reason I chose sometimes though, is because for anal, we don't always use condoms. We always use condoms for vaginal, but sometimes we go bare for anal. It feels good with all our natural lubes and such, but sometimes I don't want his come in my rear.

My husband and I don't always care for how they feel, but will gladly use them out of necessity. We've been exclusive for a very long time, and didn't use condoms for several years while I was on the pill. After I went off the pill and we had our son, I tried to go back to it. My body just doesn't like the hormones the way it used to and I just don't feel right when I take the pill now, so back to condoms we go!

We never have, because he used one while masturbating once, and he hated it. I wish he'd use it though.

I just stopped using the pill, so condoms all the time for us until we know we're ready to bring a child into the world. If one happens accidentally, we can handle that, but we'd like to be able to plan a little bit if we can.

None for us! We're bad! haha but we have both been tested since being together, and gotten the green light. I am on the Implanon, which is the strongest form of birth control available, so i'm not worried!

We're both 29 atm (I turn 30 in 2 wks) We've been married 8 years and have 2 kids. We don't use them for these reasons. When we were younger and first married we always used them b/c we didn't want the responsibility of a kid until we were ready for them. Neither one of us has STD's, but that's another good reason to always use them though.

Ditto this!

I'm all for arousal and comfort but I don't think those are excuses for stupidity. There are admittedly completely legitimate reasons that you can forgo condoms, such as in a long term monogamous relationship where you don't mind if you end up pregnant, but condoms don't only protect against pregnancy!

Maybe I'm paranoid and distrustful, but I don't think I'd give up condom usage myself just because I enter into a monogamous relationship.

Does safe sex = condom usage?

I've only had one partner and we have never used a condom. I was on the pill before and now I'm protected by my copper IUD. It's even more effective than the pill so there's no concern for pregnancy, and no concern for STDs since we are monogamous. I would consider that to be safe sex.

I don't like condoms, but I'll deal with them for safety's sake, definitely. (Also not on any BC right this minute, so if sex suddenly appeared, a condom would be a necessity.) It's hard for me to enjoy sex as much if I don't feel safe disease and/or pregnancy-wise.

Can't say I've never been bad about it in the heat of the moment, but I'm pretty adamant these days. I've never had a guy say "Oh, condom? Well, never mind the sex then."

I'm on BC and I trust it. My boyfriend and I are committed to each other & we've been tested before we started dating. That's why we don't use condoms. Funny thing, when we first started dating my boyfriend said he'd have to be with me for awhile before he wouldn't use a condom. He was very iffy about it haha that made me feel comfortable about his past hooks ups.

I don't use condoms with my boyfriend,as it takes away from the whole spontaneity and fun we have(including some types of 'roleplay'), but I ALWAYS use them (and gloves too,for certain things) with any casual thing. I'm on the depo. shot and have been for almost 4 years now, with a lack of a period for almost 3.
I don't really need to worry about protection from STDs with him, and he rarely comes inside. If a pregnancy were to happen, I've got an emergency abortion fund to take care of that issue.
I prefer to use condoms with those I'm not fluid-bonded with,and since they're non-latex, no chance of ripping. (unless he's got something sharp on his cock....then we've got something different to worry about.)

For several reasons, we just don't use condoms.
1) I have a latex allergy. Not a bad one, just some skin irritation if I experience prolonged exposure.
2) Neither of us like how they feel.
3) We're completely monogamous and know we're both clean.

We did buy condoms about a year and a half ago because I was in between birth controls (switching from Depo shots to Implanon) and there was a 2 month time span in which I wasn't on anything... But I think we only used 2 of those condoms before deciding it didn't matter.

I had negative reactions to the various hormonal birth control options so it was always condoms. Got used to them but the latex odor was a turnoff for me. I now have an IUD, just love it!
Sometimes we use condoms for anal but have to admit, the clean up using condoms is just so easy....
12/05/2011
Valentinka Valentinka
I'm not on birth control, unfortunately, so we have to use condoms most of the time. We sometimes go with a pull-out method as we got tired of using condoms all the time. I know it's a huge risk, but we don't really hate the idea of having a baby if it happens. Condoms are great in terms of clean-up though!
12/05/2011
Silverdrop Silverdrop
I don't think it's less romantic with a condom, but it certainly feels different. My first (non-masturbatory) orgasm happened the first time I had sex without a condom. It helped finding the right size for my boyfriend, but we really don't have any other options as I can't seem to do well on hormonal birth control.

Just hoping he'll get a vasectomy soon. I'm pretty sure he will, he's just working his way up to it, and I'm standing back and letting it be his decision. If I'm ever in surgery for anything else, I'll have my tubes tied at the same time, but I'm not willing to undergo the risk and recovery time for just that. So until then, condoms it is.

Cherrylane Cherrylane
Hate them. It doesn't feel as good at all, don't feel as close to your partner, etc. It helps to lessen anxiety over becoming pregnant though, even though I'm already on birth control.

SweetSurprise SweetSurprise
I dont really like them but sometimes its a good idea to use one. If you have multiple partners or no birth control method id use one. Im on BC and monogamous with the s/o so we dont usr them. And you can always make using one more sexy. Slide it on for your partner with your hand while touching them with your free hand or use your mouth. Go condom shopping and have fun picking out different styles together.

We don't use condoms because Trojans, a common brand, has something in them I'm allergic to. I got a kidney infection when I last used them and was almost hospitalized. I had a reaction and wasn't aware.
We also don't use them because he goes limp at the sight of a condom wrapper. Can't really keep it hard with one on.
We're just happier without them.

But I'm on the Depo shot and haven't had a period since January, so no need to worry about babies.

I voted "No" but we really should be using one since I'm not yet on birth control. If my boyfriend gets me pregnant, that's just a bridge we'll have to cross but I hope that never happens. If I happened to have sex with another man (That will never happen), I would definitely make them wear a condom.

I really do not like condoms. I'm on the Pill now, and it worked perfectly for me the last time I was on it, but fluid-bonding is a big step. Also... I wasn't using condoms with my ex, because I was on the Pill, and just found out that he left me with HPV, probably from some of his cheating.

ThoughtsAblaze ThoughtsAblaze
Since I can't use hormonal birth control, condoms are our only form of BC. It took us awhile to find the right condom (he'd go limp as soon as it was on), so there were times we were careless and he pulled out. Now that we have the perfect condom, though, there are no excuses anymore.

We only used condoms for the first 3 weeks of our relationship. I can't really feel the difference. He doesn't care about it that much, but isn't a big fan of them. We're on the pill and feel safe with it, but the added safety of a condom as well is nice. We're at the point in our relationship that if we have an "accident" it's not a huge deal. We've been together for nearly 3 years and will both be graduating from college in May. We've lived together for a while now and will likely get married someday, so a throwing a baby in the mix isn't something we want right now, but we wouldn't be devastated if happened.

When your in a mutually monogamous relationship where you know you are safe and can trust one another you can finally use other forms of birth control. Thanks God, cause condoms make me feel like I'm fucking plastic first and a vagina second, which I am.

I used to be overly demanding of them, but it seems what was causing my problem with them was an evil latex allergy, and there is NO way I can afford those lambskin ones, and I don't trust the non-latex, non-lambskin ones because they're so thin and weird and too breakable. It isn't super often that I have sex anyways. My ex wasn't a fan of them either, but he was willing to wear them for me when I wanted them. It turned out though that crazy enough, my hormonal birth control ended up working well enough. Now I'm on an IUD, and we'll see what happens. If I do have sex again anytime soon, it won't be until at least summer...

Partner and I have to be tested otherwise condom is a must. Birth control is also a huge deal so condom only lessens the risk even more since my future does not involve babies any time soon. Oral sex is fun with or without. Anal MUST have a condom since it is a safety issue and prevents male UTI.

We've been having sex for almost three years and we've never used a condom... I feel the same way, it would take away from the experience. If I was sleeping with multiple partners or something it would be wise to, but since we've both only had one sexual partner(eachother) its not a big deal, so long as he doesn't "do anything" inside of me.

I voted sometimes. Because I always demand a condom because I am terrified of getting pregnant and/or getting an STI. I like to protect myself from anything that could compromise my health. But they are somehow impersonal and can take away from the great feeling of a naked penis.... But I always choose a condom, even though they can be kind of annoying

I've actually never had sex without a condom. 1. I don't want to get pregnant, even though I am also on the pill. 2. My BF has an STD he worries he could pass on to me.
Overall, I feel safer and more comfortable knowing we're using a condom. I don't feel the condom once he is inside of me. I know he doesn't like the condom much.

No condoms for us. I don't think we've used one since high school so almost 10 years ago? We've been together for a LONG time and I've been on the pill since I was 16 so no need for a condom. Personally, I don't like them and I hate the way they smell.

Hate em! Takes so much of the feeling away, we feel so much closer without one. We used them for a few years though, but now I've got an IUD (I HIGHLY recommend them if you hate condoms/pills!) and I'm on HRT (hormone replacement therapy, I'm transsexual) so I'll be sterile soon anyways, thank GOD! The only way we're ever going to use a condom again is to cover jelly toys

I was on the pill for less than 2 months before I stopped because I reacted so badly. I got a Mirena and I love it. The hormones are lower and more localized so I haven't reacted as badly. Plus, there is always non-hormonal IUDs too.

My current partner and I stopped using them when we both got a clean bill of health from the Doc.

He has had a vasectomy for 13 years and I am pretty certain that I can't have children, so pregnancy isn't really a worry for us.

I always insist on condoms until I know that we are both clean, or if we seeing other partners who we aren't fluid bonded with. My current Partner is married and his wife and I talk about our sexual health regularly, she really feels the same way I do about the whole condom issue.

I say sometimes for a few reasons:

Unless I have recently had an orgasm, or not irrigated my urethra since my last orgasm, in which case we use a condom.

Condoms feel gross and oily and sometimes the colors look unappealing.

I'm on the pill and condoms also kind of irritated my lady parts so I voted no.

He didn't like using condoms either because they were pretty tight on him.
