Today I’m back answering your guy questions, and Sammie says: “When my boyfriend and I have sex we want to be safe and use condoms, but we just don’t like how they feel! Is there a certain brand that feels better than others?”
First off, I’m so happy to hear you and your dude want to be safe. It really scares me sometimes looking through the boards and seeing some of you gURLs aren’t using protection with your guys (totally not cool because most of us don’t want to end up a baby daddy, so wrap it up!).
But just as one guy’s junk is not equal to another’s, neither are condoms for that matter. From my limited glances around the locker room (and trust me, I’m not spending a lot of time checking out packages on other guys), man parts come in all shapes and sizes. Some of them have extra pieces of skin even.
So really, no, there is no brand of condom I could recommend that would feel better than another. It’s definitely specific to your guy, because the kind I might like, he might hate, and vice versa.
My best advice: Go crazy and try out a new brand every time you have sex until you find the brand you really love. And do some digging online. You can often order a trial condom online from some of the bigger brands (although it might be a little embarrassing if mom finds that in the mail!). The most important thing is that you should always use some form of birth control. So if the two of you have exhausted every brand on the pharmacy shelves, maybe you can try out the female version or start talking about the pill (that is, of course, if you’ve been tested for STDs).
So, got any more questions from me? Throw them my way via the comments.
