Condom is a kind of contraceptive for men which are very advantageous. Instead of preventing unplanned pregnancy, wearing condoms for men can avoid sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms can help men to stay away from various sexually transmitted diseases (STD), such as HIV/AIDS, genital herpes, and so on.
Aside from those functions above, condoms can also enhance sexual pleasure during sexual intercourse. It is because nowadays condoms are made in various designs which can help both men and women getting better sexual fantasy and pleasure. Instead of those mentioned advantages, there are many other things men and women should know about condoms. Here we are going to reveal condoms facts you may not know before.
The first fact about condoms is that in average, condoms can hold 4 quarts of liquid. It is equal to 3.8 liters. This amount of liquid a condom can hold is higher than the amount of a bottle of milk. Even so, condoms can be used only once.
The second fact about condoms you may not know is that condoms are firstly used by Egyptians as early as 1350BC. At that time, based on the historical records, condoms are made of leather, animal intestines or animal bladders. However, nowadays condoms come in various materials. Condoms can be made by using latex, rubber, polyisoprene, polyurethane, and lamb intestines. Among those materials, latex is considered as the highest quality material for condoms. It is because latex condoms are more protective and strong.
According to condoms facts, latex condoms can effectively stop the transmission of sexually transmitted disease, especially HIV meanwhile the others cannot. Besides, latex condoms are very flexible and stretchable. Unfortunately, even though latex condoms are very strong and flexible, don’t even lubricate it by using oil or lotion. Oil and lotion can cause latex to breakdown easily. Considering that, it is highly recommended to lubricate it by using water.
The third fact about condoms is that wearing more than one condom at the same time is dangerous. Wearing more than one condom at the same time can cause leakage. Furthermore, it can make sexual intercourse no longer comfortable, especially for women. It may cause serious damage on women’s sexual organ as well.
The fourth fact about condoms is that condoms are quite fragile. Unlike the other stretchable stuff, condoms are very sensitive to heat. Exposure to heat or sunlight can reduce the quality of the condoms. Heat or sunlight may weaken and harden the condoms so that they are no longer flexible and stretchable. Not to mention, heat or sunlight exposure can make condoms easier to breakdown. Considering that, it is necessary to keep condoms in cool and dry place.
The last fact from condoms facts reveals that condoms will not make men less sensitive during sexual intercourse. It is just a myth that condoms will decrease men’s sensitivity. In fact, there are many modern condoms which come in very light material which allows men to be extra sensitive during sexual intercourse.
Based on condoms facts, condoms are the best contraceptive designed for men. They are not only designed for penetrative sex but condoms are also designed for oral sex. Wearing condoms will make any sexual activities safe and more protected.
