Tips For The Condom Conversation
A witty but very useful article on how to navigate the conversation about wearing a condom with your partner, in this day and age where 1 in 4 Americans has a sexually transmitted infection (STI). In my work with women that are either involved in newer relationships or are trying out casual dating, the topic of how to have the conversation about safer sex with a new partner almost always comes up. A new relationship is exciting, full of passion and people are riding high on the cocktail of sexual hormones- it is also a time when most partners are unaware of each other's STI status and are less likely to negotiate safer sex. The writer presents some of the common myths and reservations that guys have about wearing condoms such as loss of feeling/sensation, losing the intensity of their orgasms or misconceptions about birth control pills being effective in preventing the transmission of STIs. The sassy comebacks for these myths and reservations are on point and I can see many of my clients using them!
