would you use a REUSEABLE CONDOM? Trojan is working on the ''The X-Effect Everlast'' reusable condom and I'm wondering about opinions??

Apparently Trojan had noticed condom sales are down due to the recession and (maybe?) want to make sure people are still being safe.. It's from 2009 and I can only assume it didn't last because I haven't found any info on it at the Trojan site, but there are articles about this...

I wanted to know opinions. I could understand this as a guy, but for the girls, even after sanitation I would not be happy if i found out this was being used...

Let me know what you guys think, and explanations below please!!

No even though I'm in a monogamous relationship

I wouldn't do it, particularly when dealing with viral VD. Think about it this way, even if the condom were made of silicone, silicone contains pores that are about 0.5 micrometers. Herpes Simplex virus is no larger than 200 nanometers (or 0.2 micrometers). This means that the pores of a SILICONE toy or object can harbor viral particles. Latex, the compound most often used for condoms, is even more highly porous (about 5 micrometers). Thus, I would not share or reuse a condom, especially made of latex.

However, that doesn't mean condoms are ineffective at preventing the transmission of these diseases! Latex condoms are multilayered and thus, even if a particle enters a pore, it is highly unlikely to come out the other side through a series of pores.

GONE! GONE!
It would just gross me out too much.

I think this is a horrible idea! No way.

Reminds me of this guy on my college campus that everyone called "Creepy Pete". One of the things he'd do was masturbate wearing a condom then wash it out and leave it to dry on the window sill.

Much to the disgust of his room mate.

Weren't some of the earliest condoms reusable? Though even so... ick, no thanks.

My first thought was "Ugh, one more thing to clean" so no. Lazyness wins.

It would really depend. It if was boilable in between? Sure. Buy again, only in a monogamous relationship.

No way, it just sounds unsanitary. I would never be able to get past the "this has been used" feeling.

We rarely use condoms but I would never use a reuseable one lol

I would be too afraid of not noticing if it got damaged.

I don't think I would. It sounds very odd. I'd have to read more about it though to really decide

Nope. I'm lazy, and don't like having more things to clean post sex.

I'm going to guess none of you read my post? lol. Figures! It's not really a problem of protecting yourself, it's a problem of possibly introducing pathogens to your other partner (the one not wearing a condom), particularly if you switch partners and use the same condom. Bleaching does not kill viral particles, nor does boiling. It's unsterilizable. It's precisely the same reason you shouldn't share non-silicone toys.

Definitely not safe if you have multiple partners. I would stay far away from them just for the ick factor. One of the only good things about condoms is easy clean up.

Defeats the purpose of a condom, honestly. Reusable things are only for single partner use, or things that can be sanitized thoroughly.

Not unless they could be thoroughly sanitized.

There are some things that should NEVER EVER be re-used. No matter what! Jesus! Just because it's money saving and earth friendly does not mean we should accept and do it! Could you imagine re-using a 2 day old tampon? Goodness this sounds so foolish to me!

I would, but only in a monogamous relationship and I would not be the one to clean it! But yeah, the inability to sanitize it, ESPECIALLY if you use it with multiple partners, that's gross. And sorry but $3 a pop isn't that expensive either. Anyone horny enough to have (safe) sex would spend $3 on one anyhow, even just to throw it away after.

Very thorough--thank you! Curious about lambskin condoms.

With all of this being said, condoms for me are used for play partners, so the idea of a reusable condom simply doesn't appeal to me.

Lambskin condoms are actually less effective at preventing the spread of STDs than artificial condoms. These condoms have pores, just like us, which shrink during manufacture, but do not shrink completely. They are much larger than 5 micrometers.
