Using a condom

The thought of try­ing out dif­fer­ent con­doms just occurred to me. Yes, for a per­son that do not believe in the use of latex, I sud­den­ly thought of that.

Well, seri­ous­ly, how many of you out there have been think­ing of this kind of ‘exper­i­ment’ before. Hav­ing a latex wrap­ping your dick and then you make love with your lover just doesn’t give you the kind of feel­ing that you will get if you pre­fer the oth­er­wise. In a nut­shell, you have peo­ple review­ing dif­fer­ent tech­nolo­gies of a car, dif­fer­ent com­put­er chip, dif­fer­ent this and dif­fer­ent that and yet one for some­thing that has been in the his­to­ry of man kind for so many years, it was neglect­ed.

In the fast paced mod­ern world, many peo­ple just come and go. You do not know their health sta­tus, and often you just fail to ques­tion them. It comes to the only assur­ance that a gay guy can have, is a latex in between. Seri­ous­ly speak­ing, how effec­tive are these grody smelling thing against the dis­ease that one do not speak of? Accord­ing to the research done world wide, con­doms are deemed high­ly effec­tive, but even at CDC’s web­site on the effec­tive­ness of con­doms pre­vent­ing HIV, I could not find any num­bers that indi­cates the suc­cess of pre­ven­tion method. In fact, as quot­ed by the CDC, the only 100% assur­ance that one can get is not to have sex­u­al inter­course. Of course, there are also arti­cles out there that states HIV some­times trans­mit via oral sex.

What is life with­out sex?

Condoms

Well, we know that some form of pro­tec­tion is bet­ter than noth­ing. A lot of peo­ple that I know out there, were ‘forced’ to use the latex than to actu­al­ly enjoy­ing sex with con­doms on. In some rare cas­es, peo­ple are think­ing of hav­ing a cock in their ass is much more nicer than hav­ing latex. So why did I decide to make these ‘exper­i­ments’?

Well, for the sole pur­pose of prac­tic­ing safer sex, and to edu­cate. (Notice I don’t use the word safe sex here?)

Through­out my sex life, I have tried many dif­fer­ent kind of con­doms. One that that I have not tried is the sheep intestines con­doms, which by the way, is not effec­tive in HIV or some STI infec­tions.

My reviews will be based on the actu­al account of using it, and before any smart alec decid­ed to say any­thing, no I am not a sex mani­ac, I am just a lover to a lov­able boy whom I have am fond of being togeth­er with him. Hav­ing sex is just part of a rela­tion­ship, and I think is equal­ly impor­tant in one.

As a bench­mark and guide, the con­doms will be used by me, and I mea­sured at 5 3/4 inch on a good day with the diam­e­ter of 1 3/4 inch. There is a prop­er way of mea­sur­ing the penis, but let’s go with the gen­er­al method first. For the review, I will also be using lubri­cant from ID Glide which is a water based with Nonoxynol-9 that kills the swim­mers. I have used this lubri­cant for non con­dom sit­u­a­tions, and it per­forms well. I would pre­fer the sil­i­con based lubri­cant which is also con­dom friend­ly but unfor­tu­nate­ly I have run out of those.

I hope you guys would enjoy the upcom­ing reviews as much as I have enjoyed mak­ing them.

Remem­ber, play safe, it is what keeps us from per­ish­ing from earth.

    famez, I agree. Then again, if you sleep around too much, you have to prac­tice that. Else, get a boy friend lor
