Guys, You Are Not The Only Ones Who Hate Condoms

Exciting things are happening in my lady parts: I’ve gone back on the birth control pill. After a few years of being single and not getting enough sex to justify a Yaz prescription, I’m once again getting boned on the regular. My guy is definitely thrilled the condoms can finally come off—but trust me; he can’t be more thrilled than me. I hate condoms. Keep reading »

The Holidays Are A Time For Unprotected Sex

Around this time of year, even as people spend hours and hours wrapping up gifts to put under the tree, they forget to wrap up something else. More than a quarter of respondents admitted to having had unprotected sex because they were too drunk to remember to use contraception, according to a study of adults 18 to 35 in the U.K. And the holidays are when people tend to drink more than usual, the study found, with almost half of respondents saying they drink more during the “festive season.” So, as you’re heading out to holiday parties, don’t forget to drop a condom into your bag. And if you want to get into the spirit of the season, make it one that looks like a wreath. [Medical News Today] Keep reading »

Tiger Beat: Golfer Didn’t Wrap Up His Wood With At Least Two Mistresses

The first rule of cheatingalways use a condom (and hopefully backup birth control). Tiger Woods, kick ass golfer and dentist’s dream (because of that pearly white smile, natch), allegedly was a big ol’ dummy and didn’t wrap up his 5-iron with at least two of the women he allegedly cheated with. Jaimee Grubbs says that she and the married father of two “never discussed” using protection and that he didn’t even ask her whether she was on the pill (which, as we know, would help prevent pregnancy but not STDs). Meanwhile, Mindy Lawton‘s sister Lynn says her sister told her Tiger never wore condoms. “I was so worried she might catch a disease, especially as we suspected he was promiscuous.” Keep reading »

Debate This: Should Guys Help Pay For Birth Control?

Until you decide to settle down and start making babies, you’re probably doing whatever you can to prevent the formation of zygotes. If you’re in a serious, long-term relationship, this can be costly — a 24-pack of Durex Extra Sensitive Lubricated Condoms costs about $20, and, depending on factors like insurance and brand, a pack of birth control pills can cost between $5 and $50. Multiple that by 12 and you have enough to buy a pair of Christian Louboutins [Or two abortions! Kidding! -- Editor]. Unlike the pill, condoms are something that either person can pick up at the drugstore, so sharing that cost is a no-brainer. But if your protection of choice is the pill, should your boyfriend contribute to the cause? We asked a bunch of sexually active folks — both male and female — whether it’s appropriate for the guy to pay for part of the prescription. Keep reading »

7 Condoms Stronger Than The Rest

Condoms aren’t exactly effective if they tear, break, or don’t hold up to whatever rough stuff you’ve got going on in the bedroom, so ShopSmart magazine put 500 samples of 22 condom models to the test for its December issue. The rubbers were put through the ringer by an outside lab that inflated them like balloons until they burst to test their strength and submerged them in saline solution zapped with electricity to check for holes. The good news is that all of the condoms passed minimum requirements. However, some of them were better than others, and out of these seven, none had a single hole or tear (industry standards allow for a certain number of defects per batch). Click through to see which condom models more than passed the test, and how much they cost per condom. [ShopSmart] Keep reading »
