If you tell women you don’t like to wear condoms, you are probably like half of the men in Australia have been at some point in their lives. Women who are sexually active have heard most of the excuses men use to not wear a condom. Do any of these sound like you?
- You can’t get pregnant; why do we need a condom?
- I can’t maintain an erection with a condom on.
- I can’t feel anything when I wear a condom.
- Condoms take me out of the mood.
- You would trust me if you really loved me.
Why Condoms are So Important
There was a time when STI’s weren’t all that common. There was no HIV/AIDS yet and the common STI’s could be treated with antibiotics. The common ones had symptoms that made their presence painfully obvious to those who had them. So the only reason most people used condoms was for birth control.
Today, however, it’s a different world and a totally new playing field. HIV and Herpes are lifetime STI’s. Chlamydia doesn’t always make itself obvious but is now a common STI. In this era, the facts are clear: if you want to have sex, you need to protect yourself from infection.
Luckily, the art of using condoms has evolved. So have condom manufacturers. There are a lot more choices now than there used to be. There have been advances in materials and sizes. Most condoms now are much more comfortable than they were thirty years ago. There are even flavoured condoms for oral sex.
Traditionally, it has been the male who decides whether condoms will be used. In this era, though, more women are deciding to take matters into their own hands and keep themselves safe. While there is no product or technique 100% guaranteed against STI’s, condoms have the highest rate of efficacy for preventing STI’s.
