Do condoms kill the feeling?

Hey there! It’s a common misconception that condoms kill the feeling during sex. But is it true? Let’s explore this topic and see if condoms really do ruin the experience.

What are condoms?

Before we dive into the main topic, let’s talk about what condoms actually are. Condoms are a type of barrier contraception that can be made from latex, polyurethane, or polyisoprene. They work by preventing sperm from entering the vagina during sexual intercourse, reducing the risk of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

Do condoms really kill the feeling?

The short answer is no, condoms do not kill the feeling during sex. In fact, they can enhance the experience in several ways.

Condoms can increase stamina

Wearing a condom can actually increase stamina and make sex last longer. This is because condoms reduce sensitivity slightly, which can help prevent premature ejaculation.

Condoms can increase comfort

Using a condom can also increase comfort during sex. It can help reduce friction and irritation, especially if you’re using a water-based lubricant.

Condoms can increase trust

Using condoms can increase trust between partners. By taking responsibility for your sexual health, you’re showing your partner that you care about their well-being too.

Condoms can increase spontaneity

Using condoms can also increase spontaneity during sex. You don’t have to worry about interrupting the moment to put on a condom, as you can do it beforehand.

Condoms can increase pleasure

Contrary to popular belief, condoms can actually increase pleasure during sex. Some condoms are designed with added features such as ribs, dots, or texture that can enhance sensation for both partners.

When do condoms kill the feeling?

While condoms do not kill the feeling during sex, there are some instances where they may not be as enjoyable.

Poor fit

If a condom doesn’t fit properly, it can cause discomfort or reduce sensation. It’s important to choose the right size and shape of condom for your body.

Lack of lubrication

Using a condom without enough lubrication can also reduce sensation and cause discomfort. Make sure to use a water-based lubricant to increase comfort and pleasure.

Latex allergies

Some people may have a latex allergy, which can cause itching, irritation, or swelling. In this case, non-latex alternatives such as polyurethane or polyisoprene condoms can be used.

In conclusion, condoms do not kill the feeling during sex. They can actually enhance the experience in several ways. However, it’s important to choose the right size and shape of condom, use enough lubrication, and consider non-latex alternatives if you have a latex allergy. By taking these factors into account, you can enjoy safe and pleasurable sex with a condom.
