We’ll be honest: condoms can be a little bit annoying. It can be kind of embarrassing to be seen buying them, choosing one out of the hundreds of varieties can be slightly overwhelming and looking for one in the heat of the moment can sometimes frustrating. What’s even more frustrating is when you start hooking up with a dude who says he doesn’t like condoms. Because guess what? No matter how annoying they might be, condoms are non-negotiable, girls.

If you’ve ever heard a guy say they can’t “get it up” with a condom on, then you know what we’re talking about. And that’s the exact problem this girl in our message boards is having: her boyfriend isn’t a fan of rubbers. Since this is a totally common issue, we wanted to see what you guys would do in this situation. Read what these girls had to say and then let us know what you think.

Okay, so what do you do if your boyfriend hates condoms… and you aren’t be able to get back on birth control for another month?

Ask him if he would rather use a condom or get you pregnant?

There are other options then being on the pill or using condoms. No need to refrain from sex just because one type of birth control doesn’t work for you guys, because there are PLENTY of other types to use:

The sponge
Female Condom

Go to the Planned Parenthood website. They give you plenty of hormonal and non-hormonal types of birth control you can use. And they explain where to get them and price costs.

Our response? Like we said before, condoms might be annoying, but guess what? They’re a million times better than dealing with an unexpected pregnancy or getting an icky STD. Although there are other types of birth control like echojax says, she’s actually wrong because the only type of BC that protects you against both pregnancy and STD/STI’s are condoms. The pill, the sponge, a diaphragm, a shot and the patch are not going to protect you against diseases. Sure, they’ll help prevent pregnancy, but protecting yourself against a disease is equally as important as preventing bringing a baby into the world.

If a guy tells you he doesn’t want to use a condom, you tell him this: no condom, no sex. Simple as that. There are tons of different types of condoms out there, from super thin ones to ones that are ribbed for extra pleasure. There’s honestly no excuse for not wearing them. Your future isn’t worth being jeopardized over the fact that one dude isn’t into rubbers… even if you have been in a monogamous relationship for a while. If he won’t wear a condom, that shows disrespect towards you, and that’s just not cool.

Have you ever dated a guy who didn’t like condoms? What did you do? What would you say if a guy told you he didn’t want to wear one? Tell us in the comments!
