What is it with men N freaking condoms!!!!!!!!!!!Page 1 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)
its only a double standard if you make it that way. when I was single...I always had at least 1 condom in my purse. & no that doesn't make me a slut. it just means that I take my safety seriously & am not going to leave it in the hands of some man.

jenjen...I said AT LEAST 1!
& as to their reasoning...no clue but I've heard all the lines too. "it just feels better" "I can't cum if I wear a condom" "latex allergy"
personally..I think we should all walk around with a picture of some nasty STD in our pocket & next time a guy starts up with a line....pull it out & say this is why we use condoms.

one of my female friends told be that she had sex without a condom. I yelled at her and gave her one of mine and my ol' mans cause I told her that she did not need to have a child yet.

Me and my bf have been together for 4 years have one kid and some of my friends ask why we still use em. We do not need another child. That is what I always say.

The way you girls are carrying on...sounds like you have/had something.


NOPE .... clean, clean, clean ... and want to stay that way. What's the guarantee that everyone else is clean ... just because they told me? Yea ... right!!!!

That's why the b/f and I are going together to get the testing done ... just so we both can have the proof in hand that all is well. And he's not going anywhere on me until the test results come back.

I test on a regular basis because I'm a nurse and due to new privacy laws, we are not always told if our clients have diseases that can be transmitted through body fluids. I try to protect myself as best I can when working with my clients, but one never knows. Gloves have flaws in them and my hands get papercuts not to mention cracked and dry from washing my hands all the time and I'm allergic to powdered gloves ... so I get an occasional rash on my hands.

I agree, bbg...it's the height of stupidity for anyone to assume that because someone is clean cut looking, or a decent person that they must intrinsically be disease free.
I wouldn't touch anyone that had that kind of reasoning with a lysol coated condom...

But if one gets to know their partner well enough before being intimate with them, it's not so much of an issue. Where is it engraved in stone that we should just jump into bed with someone?

I didn't say anything about promiscuity or knowing a partner, and I am in a relationship in which I trust my partner and have moved past using condoms....BUT, I find it idiotic to make the assumption that someone is disease free because of societal factors.

just a bit of information...you don't die from AIDS. you die from opportunistic infections that result from having an immune suppression. such as Pneumocystis carinii, cryptosporidium parvum, cyrptococcus neoformans etc.
& yes if you have unprotected sex you increase your chances of contracting AIDS or other nasty stuff. & although as one poster said there should be a home std test available...the variety of stds prevents such a thing from being possible. Some are parasitic, some are bacterial, some are viral. all these require different testing methods which is why they are done in labs & not at home. It would cost a fortune to have home testing kits & you'd have to get more than one type to cover everything out there.

I can only speak for myself and it hasn't happened to me. And yes, I have exchanged my 'test' with every person I've been intimate with and vice versa. It's what educated, responsible adults do



just go with the flow....
throw caution to the wind.
Roulette?
take a chance


well, pardon me ....but with the bits in bold quoted above,Joy... I just assumed that you were taking chances...I missed the part about the tests in your first post ;)

with a one-night stand i don't have oral sex.and i won't let him go down on me either.

but it's true...we have this tendency to think oral sex is not risky.
