The most important reasons married and unmarried peoples use condoms.
Maybe one or both of them isn’t monogamous
Maybe they’re swingers, or polyamorists, or unfaithful. Maybe they have threesomes and orgies.
Maybe one or both of them has an infection
Maybe one of them was born HIV positive. Maybe one of them contracted herpes from a previous partner, or from childhood sexual abuse, and doesn’t want to infect the other. Maybe one of them works in a career that has them coming into regular contact with blood-borne pathogens.
Maybe they don’t want children yet or ever
but the woman can’t take hormonal birth control because she has cardiovascular disease and it would put her at high risk for stroke, or because it gives her severe nausea. Maybe it’s against her religion, or she just doesn’t like synthetic hormones in her body. Maybe condoms are a back-up in addition to birth control pills for a woman who is known to be forgetful with taking them, or has gotten pregnant while being on the pill before and prefers a condom as a safety net.
Maybe they like condoms
Maybe they think the ones that have warming and cooling sensations, or ribbed ones with tingling lube, feel good and add to their sexual enjoyment.
Maybe one or both of them was raped by someone not wearing a condom, and bare ejaculation in the body is triggering and traumatic.
Maybe those have a danger of allergies. Women upto 12 percent of women could be allergic to semen, some so severely that exposure could cause anaphylactic shock.
Women aged 20 to 30 are thought to be worst affected, displaying symptoms immediately or up to one hour after exposure.
Symptoms include irritation, itching, painful urination and eczema, but in the most severe cases, exposure to semen can cause a potentially fatal allergic reaction. Lynne Moraa 28 year old who has been married for two years now says she has tried everything else to get over her semen allergy but it’s not working.
When a woman is more attractive, a man is less likely to intend to use a condom during sex with her, a new study finds.
Previous research has suggested that there is a link between perceived attractiveness and a person’s willingness to have unprotected sex, the researchers, led by Anastasia Eleftheriou, a graduate student in computer science at the University of Southampton in England, wrote in the new study. Eleftheriou’s research focuses on using computer simulations to study and influence attitudes towards sexual behavior.
The findings suggest sexual behavior is irrational when it comes to avoiding infections: Men in the study were less likely to intend to use a condom with a woman they found more attractive, even if they thought the woman had an STI, the researchers wrote. Conversely, the men in the study were more likely to intend to use a condom with a woman they considered less attractive, even if she was less likely to have an STI, according to the study.
Based on the findings, a one-size-fits-all approach may not work to educate men about condom use, the researchers wrote. Rather, education efforts may need to differ depending on if the men are more attracted to women who they believe are more likely to have STIs or more attracted to women who they believe are less likely to have STIs.
