What is it with men N freaking condoms!!!!!!!!!!!Page 24 of 24    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24)
I am giving this topic a lot of thought. I have had sex with 4 men in the last 2 yrs since my last STD testing. They have all been bareback. I have a very bad reaction to latex, I carry epipens for it. When I was working in the dental field (which I had to quit due to the latex allergy) I would react from non latex gloves as well. My best guess and the doctors is that since they are typically manufactured in the same plant the dust residue from manufacturing carries the latex particials to the nonlatex gloves. My reactions also come from rubber band and if I write with a rubber grip pen.

So this has been on my mind of how to deal with this for myself. For me yes latex itself CAN kill me. Probably for me a much greater risk than a STD and much quicker than AIDS would. I decided to do a test with one on the non latex condoms to see. I handled it for about 2-3 minutes and yes I put it to my lips because I would probably go down on a man after he had one on. While I didn't need to use the epipen, I did have shortness of breath and my lips swelled. A prolonged exposure of a greater amount of time the situation could require an epipen and a trip to the ER.

I cannot see abstinence being an option for me. I have pretty much decided that I will have to do regular testing and to take calculated risks.

Don't they make lambskin condoms anymore?

Probably, but lambskin condoms don't offer much protection against STDs.

Yes I researched the lambskin condoms and they don't offer much protection. My tubes are tied so I am not concerned with pregnancy. At this moment there isn't anyone I am willing to take that step with. The next person would have to be willing to wait until testing comes back all clear before I would consider it. I am due for testing and a pap anyways so I will be getting that done soon and then being abstinent until I feel comfortable doing so.

It's mostly because it's easier to clean an 'outie' than an 'innie'. As long as a guy doesn't have any broken skin, pees after sex, and washes his penis, the chances of infection are greatly reduced. A woman doesn't have that option. Just because you're exposed to a disease doesn't mean you will always catch it; the duration and amount of exposure are also factors.
Of course, the real reason guys go 'bareback' is because it feels so much better. I'd be lying to you if I said anything different.
Try running your hand through long silky hair. Really nice, huh?
Now, put a glove on and do the same thing. Now do you get it?

Men seem to think bareback is ok even though they have no clue of your past.

From my experience it's the exact opposite. The woman says no you don't need to I'm clean ect. I'll bring it up and they seem offended. Or they are willing to swallow but want you to wear a condom for intercourse. I still always wear one though.

I looked at the OPs question, and.... if ALL these men are having bareback sex, they must be having it with just as many women who think it is ok........
