Condoms are necessary to practice safe sex, but as a man, there are plenty of reasons why you would hate using condoms. Condoms are known to reduce the sexual pleasure that men experience during sex, but given the protection it provides for both men and women, using condoms is an essential compromise. Wrong condom choices are often the cause of the negative experiences that men have with condoms. In this article, we’ll show you how to choose the right condom type so you get to enjoy all the benefits that safe sex has to offer.
Size is Important
Getting the right size is important to maximize sensation. Loose condoms tend to slide around which reduces friction and sensation. That being said, do not buy magnums if you know that you’re average at best. Sure, it looks cool when you buy magnums, but you won’t be fooling anyone in the bedroom. The right fit ensures that your condom stays on and it would give you just the right sensation while having sex.
When in Doubt, Go Thin
Should you go for dotted or ribbed condoms? Online polls in women’s magazine websites show that only a small percentage of women prefer “kinky” condoms that are meant to “pleasure” them during sex. If you’re having sex with your partner for the first time, it’s best to go THIN or REGULAR to be safe.
Go for Non-Latex Condoms
There’s no way to tell if your partner is allergic or sensitive to latex, so it’s best to choose non-latex condoms just to be safe. Non-latex condoms are arguably less elastic and more expensive than latex condoms, but the marginal size difference could go a long way.
Choosing the right condom shouldn’t be complicated, but it helps if you know exactly what you are getting. At the end of the day, what’s important is that you and your partner are both protected from unwanted consequences of having sex.
