    There are all sorts of available contraceptives out there. I've never had any scares or other issues when using alternatives to a condom. Also, just read this article that I found very interesting (discussing condoms and sexual safety within an adult entertainment setting)...

    Anyway...

    I'm wondering what other people think on the matter of condoms as compared to other forms of contraceptive.

    I freaking hate condoms. I was on the pill in highschool, got pregnant once. I rarely ever used condoms. When I got together with my husband I stopped using the pill and we used spermicide film instead. That stuff hurt going in because the way I had to fold it it would have sharp edges. Stopped using birth control after that. Now I'm using condoms (polyisophrene), ovulation tests and spermicide.

    I personally prefer no contraception at all but I really do not want anymore children. Waiting for my husband to get his vasectomy and then I'm getting my tubes tied. Until he makes his appointment hopefully no sex. It's been months.

    I don't mind condoms but I prefer just using birth control. If there's anyone involved other then my husband though, condoms are a must. I don't want accidental pregnancies or STD's that I have to live with for the rest of my life.

    I'm currently on the pill and have sex without condoms with my husband. On days where I get sick and it "may weaken the pill and cause pregnancy" (according to the leaflet) we use condoms for the suggested 48 hours. It's no big deal.

    I don't understand people who hate condoms. 90% of the time, I can't even feel that he has one on. We use the ultra thins and lube up. They are skin tight and so thin I can still feel his warmth. The only downside is not feeling him shoot his cum inside me. THAT is a feeling I love.

    I'm actually pretty sensitive down there and can feel the latex condoms. The ones I use now I can feel if it starts to come off.

    Why are the condoms coming off? If being used properly that shouldn't happen.

    I think when I squeeze my muscles it pulls them off. It's the only time it happens.

    Condoms can come off depending on how vigorous and prolonged activity is. (Something mentioned in that above posted article.) I've never had that particular issue with condoms. My main complaint is finding one that is a good/comfortable fit for me. I have found a few brands/types - but they tend to be pricey. :eek:

    I've had a condom come off once and it was with my first partner. I figured it was just from his inexperience. Mr Mitt and I can go for long periods and it doesn't seem an issue. I guess we just found the right type.

    10_3XL- what types do you tend to use, if you don't mind me asking?

    I've found that Kimono and One brands work well. Also occasionally use Profils or Lifestyle Skyns.

    Another very important note on condoms:
    You get what you pay for, so NEVER be "economic" when it comes to you and your partner's safety and pleasure.

    I got a pack of the Skyns for free, I don't use condoms often so we haven't used them. Do they feel different than normal condoms?

    Yes, they do. That's what we use. Better heat transfer and can barely feel them.

    They feel different than normal in that they are made of a pretty significantly thinner material - just as durable, though.

    Condoms make awesome party balloons; they blow up enormous before coming close to exploding.
    We also used them in water fights as grenades as teenagers :)

    I've never been a fan of Condoms. I really don't like the way they feel inside of me no matter how much lube is used. They always used to irritate my Vajay Vajay.

    Husband had a vasectomy about 15 years ago. Then shortly after that, I had to have a hysterectomy.

    I truly feel compassionate for those who must use them (and are irritated by them)...

    I never used a condom in my life. And I think my three kids are all registered to me and my wife.

    My buddies and I sometimes buy cheap ones (or take expired/unwanted ones we have laying around) and see how much water/air/etc we can fill into them before they burst. As I recall we almost got to 15 gallons in one... but I could be remembering wrong - we were pretty blitzed at the time. Another fun condom competition - see if you can roll it down over your head until it covers your nose; then inflate. (Can be done.)

    Condoms are honestly more of a hilarious party favor type item than serious contraceptive to me... because I'm super mature like that. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I don't want to be on the pill everyday if I'm not in a relationship. I don't mind/feel them. I can't speak for how they feel on a guy.
    The pill doesn't protect against std's so until I'm sure he's clean, get a party hat or no party.

    I've been on the pill for years, and I knew the two guys I've had sex with since then have been clean. We haven't used condoms unless he wanted to cum inside. (I really do not want kids and I'm not at a point in my life where I could handle an accident.)

    That being said, I can't feel a difference for the most part.
