5 Condom Myths Exposed

5 Condom Myths Exposed

Posted by Kenny Condom on Jun 11, 2015


As a rather experienced condom supplier in Australia, we have heard it all when it comes to condom stories. Sometimes we have to shake our heads at some of the misinformation people believe about condoms. We thought it might be a good thing to debunk some of the more common myths about condoms.

Myth #1: All Condoms are Safe

Sadly, not all condoms are safe. Some brands are more likely to break than others. It is important to choose the right brand. Imagine taking great care to use condoms and have safe sex, only to find out that you caught an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) or your partner got pregnant. At CondomSales, we go out of our way to make sure we only handle brands that are safe. If it’s worth wrapping, it’s worth wrapping right.

Another caution: always make sure you check the date to make sure your condom hasn’t “expired.”

Myth #2: I Don’t Need a Condom Because I Know How to Choose my Partners

Sadly, no matter how great you are at choosing partners or how nice they are to you, you can never know whether someone has an STI or not. Many people who are infected with STI’s don’t even know it. No matter classy, nice or selective your partner is, they could still be infected.

Myth #3: We Don’t Need a Condom for Oral Sex

Wrong again. Herpes, chlamydia and gonorrhoea can all be spread by oral sex. It’s a classy thing to do for your partner, too.

Myth #4: Condoms Make Me Less Sensitive

This is a half-truth. They can make a person less sensitive, but not enough to be a detriment. If anything, they can help some people last longer before they have an orgasm, allowing them to please their partner more.

Myth #5: It’s Safer to Use both a Male and Female Condom

If you use them at the same time, they are both more likely to break.
