Condom is a sheath-shaped barrier device, used during sexual intercourse to reduce the probability of pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection (STI). There are both male and female condoms . With proper use—and use at every act of intercourse—women whose partners use male condoms experience a 2% per-year pregnancy rate. Their use greatly decreases the risk of gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, hepatitis B , and HIV/AIDS.
However, Don’t let us forget the disadvantages. This article presents some of the reasons you should stop using condoms.
1. It Causes Skin Irritation
Some men are allergic to the latex used to produce condoms. Even though study shows that a very few number of men are allergic to condoms, we can’t still ignore the fact that there are men out there that face such. Not just the men only, as some women too have to deal with the friction that comes with using condom which could cause pains during sexual intercourse. For such people, instead of enjoying it, the reverse would be the case and they might end up going for treatment after it.
2. It Can Break During the Act
Condoms are not very strong and can break during s*x. This in some cases cause unwanted pregnancy or even sexually transmitted diseases. Imagine a situation where someone wasn’t careful while using condom and it breaks, not only can it completely ruin the sexual mood, it will be a disaster if after such encounter, one finds out later that one is infected with a sexually transmitted disease or end up pregnant.
3. It Reduces the Level of Trust Among Partners
When a lady insists that they must use condom before they have s*x, sometimes, the man might think it is because she doesn’t trust him enough and same goes to woman if her husband insists that they must use condom she might think otherwise. Skin to skin s*x is mostly translated as love, commitment and trust in most relationships. For someone to have s*x with you without condom, it means the person trusts you with their life. This is very common with married couples as most husbands wouldn’t even agree to use condom for birth control and if their wives should insist, they simply see that as lack of trust.
4. Condom Reduce Sexual Satisfaction
It has been discovered that most partners complain when using condom as it reduces sexual satisfaction whereas those that have had skin to skin s*x and also had condom s*x could testify to the fact that skin to skin is the best form of s*x as it gives one this good feeling of being satisfied.
Note that some men even find it very hard to have an erection when using condom which could be a very embarrassing situation and thus cause both parties to get frustrated and not enjoy their copulation at all.
5. It’s Not 100% Protective
Condoms do not protect us 100% from some sexual transmitted diseases such as HIV and scabies infection which is an infection caused by parasitic mites and just like lice, this mites burrow into the skin and could be transmitted during s*x, causing itching on the outer areas of the skin that could not be covered by the condom. Note that this parasites could be seen with the bare eyes and often survive by staying in the pubic hair.
