Five reasons to glove up now

Why do we see condoms as a barrier to sexual pleasure? Make friends with condoms and you will realise that they are capable of so much more than just preventing pregnancy!
Pleasure all the way

We have made so many important advances in life; and one of them is having condoms for sexual pleasure! We have a whole rainbow to choose from – ribbed and dotted, hot and cold, chocolate flavour, and even minty fresh.

Men often complain that having sex with a condom is like getting a massage with a winter coat on. But thanks to the newly-available additions, there are so many varieties of thin or skin-feel condoms out there to explore.
And ladies, if you find sex with a condom annoying or painful, you are probably not using the right one!

Mess-less sex

You probably know that scene from a movie where, after sex, the couple just lays in bed all satisfied basking in the glory of their sexual prowess?

Well, in the real life, it’s just the opposite. Most of the times, post-coital bliss begins to vanish when women have to rush to the toilet, cupping their lady parts as efficiently as possible so that you don’t drip all over the floor. The struggle is real!

On the other hand, when you wear your good old translucent friend, you can just relax and enjoy the ‘mess-free’ moment.

No 'good news'

One of the top reasons why most of us use condoms is to prevent pregnancy. Good choice! According to Planned Parenthood, if used correctly, condoms are up to 98 per cent effective!

While there are many different ways to practice birth control, condoms remain the least invasive and very reliable non-hormonal method.

No side effects

Unlike other birth control methods, which may have various side effects like hormone imbalances or disruption of natural bodily cycles, condoms are completely non-intrusive. As is with birth control pills, there is no recovery period or waiting for your body to regain its natural rhythm if you want to have a baby. Just take the condom off and voila, you are ready to start trying!

No STDs

Condoms protect against most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). STDs range from mildly annoying to life-threatening (including HIV), and condoms are the only form of birth control that prevents many sexually transmitted diseases.

Condoms can be used during oral, anal, or vaginal sex.  So no matter how you roll, it will keep you safe.
With no stress about contracting an STD or getting pregnant, you can actually focus on what really matters in: pleasure!  

So go on, make condoms your friend and orgasm your way to a safe, exciting, and fulfilling sexual life!
