Condom related question Positive/Negative intercourse.
« on: October 08, 2012, 04:54:37 PM »
To your knowledge is one condom far superior than the rest when it comes to disease prevention me (+) to partner (-), comfort for me, sensitivity for me & I tend to be on the larger side of the fence if you catch my drift. I have been doing some research and came across information for Microsheer, Polyurethane & Tactylon over latex and wanted to see if anyone had personal experience with any of these and what you thought. I know condoms are not 100% but trying to get as close as possible for partners sake.  :o

Below is the Consumer Reports condom review.  I've read polyurethane condoms can be better for sensitivity and for being able to use oil based lub, but can break more easily.  I have read somewhere that the condoms Planned Parenthood gives out rate poorer--they burst more frequently in tests.  And, never use a condom from a gas station bathroom machine..lol.  I remember when I was about 10, my friend and I bought one and filled it up with water.  It had so many leaks in it.

If you get the chance, check out Moderator Ann's signature line in her posts. She has a remarkably turgid amount of condom links.

There are a staggering variety of shapes and styles of condom. Part of the fun is finding the perfect fit. I suppose it's a bit like true love in that regard.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
