Safe sex is sexy

People sometimes complain that using condoms reduces their sexual sensation. Well, here are some tips to make things wetter, because wetter is better!

If you’re planning to use lubricant, make sure it’s water-based. Oil-based lubricant can damage latex condoms, leaving you vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.

Flesh to flesh?

Before putting on your or his condom, put a bit of water-based lubricant inside it. The squishy lubricant will create a flesh-to-flesh sensation. Don’t use too much though, or the condom could slip off.

A tasty mouthful

Add flavour based lubricant on the outside of the condom to make oral sex tastier.

Why is wetter better?

Plenty of lubrication reduces the risks of small tears that can be the result of too much friction while having sex. These tiny tears around the vagina or the anus provide openings for all kinds of STDs. So, lubrication makes sex not just more fun, but also safer!

Hey Caleb, a condom will break or burst during sex when it is not used correct. For instance if one uses an expired condom or uses more than one condom at the same time. It is important to follow the instruction for use to ensure a condom works well. When a condom breaks during sex, it should be replaced immediately if one wishes to continue with sex. Have a look at the following article for directions of use;- https://lovemattersafrica.com/birth-control/types-of-birth-control/condom

I suspect my husband is cheating. I have no proof but now I want to start using condoms. I know he will not agree so I want to use the female condoms where do I get them?

Hey Lizz, there is no way to tell for sure if your partner is cheating but if you have any concerns consider talking about it with your husband. It is important that you try not to accuse him a cheater but rather raise your concerns with them to get to know what could be going on. You can check for the female condom at your local pharmacy and also at government health centre where you might get them for free. Lastly, to use the condom successfully, you will need to talk about this decision with your partner, when both of you are involved the chances of success are higher.

Hi Alfred, a good place to start is to find out what is causing Premature Ejaculation. It is caused by a number of reasons including fear, anxiety or even stress. Anxiety that one will not perform can make him ejaculate much earlier or stress from home or even work. In other cases, particularly in young men it could be the result of sexual inexperience, and so as one gets older and gain more experience, they also become better at controlling their ejaculation. There are a few other things one can do to overcome this;- https://lovemattersafrica.com/making-love/sex-problems-how-to-overcome-them/how-to-overcome-premature-ejaculation
