How to Choose the Right Condom
Do you know about the available variety of condoms? Did you know that there are condoms that can make you last longer in bed? There are even condoms that contain a spermicide lubricant that kills sperm; helpful if you really want to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. Some people are allergic to latex condoms, so there are alternatives they can use; there truly is no limit to the variations of contraception. With there being so many styles of condoms it can be hard to decide on what’s right for you.
The Differences in Condoms
One thing that you must take into account is the size of the condom; whilst condoms are able to stretch (lengthwise) the nominal width (the size at the base of a condom) can make all the difference when it comes to your pleasure and comfort. If you’re squeezing into a condom that constricts blood flow due to being too tight, that’s not good. You also don’t want to wear a condom that’s too large for what you’re working with. The nominal width of a condom is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing the right fit for you. If the condom is too big, you run the risk of it slipping off; if it’s too tight, you’ll struggle to get it on and the chance of breakage is higher.
When you and your partner are about to have sex, you want to have ready supply condoms. So, try to keep your condoms in place that’s easily accessible from wherever you are. You don’t want to be scurrying around for your stash right before you’re about to get your freak on. Many people often say that the putting on of a condom is mood killer, so, make sure to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Why Condoms Break
If you and your lover are going at it and the condom breaks, it could be for a number of reasons. Maybe you choose the wrong type of condom, it didn’t fit correctly, or there wasn’t enough lube to ease the friction. Speaking of lube, you should know about the differences between the kinds that are available, such as oil-based & water-based. Understand how various types of lubricant react to certain condoms and read the packaging that comes with the condoms you’re using.
When you’re looking into the different styles of condoms available, be open-minded about what’s on the market. Technology is constantly evolving, so there are new types of condoms arriving all the time. You can buy flavoured condoms, for all of your oral sex needs, to ribbed and textured ones; you’ll also find extra sensitive and dulling condoms (if you want to last longer under the sheets. If you’re feeling wild, you can even buy glow in the dark condoms.
The Death of Spermicide Condoms
Spermicide condoms aren’t as popular as they used to be since there are other options available; options that are much safer for long-term use. Although spermicide condoms are known to be a little dangerous during prolonged usage, they do still mitigate the risks of sexually transmitted diseases. As well as destroying the sperm that comes into contact with the spermicide lubricant, these condoms also destroy the lining of the vagina and cervix.
Now that you know a little bit more about the things you should look out for when picking out the condom that’s right for you, maybe now you can make better decisions. As they say, it’s better safe than sorry.
