Myth Busted: Condoms Do Not Hinder Sexual Pleasure
The common myth that condoms hinder sexual pleasure has been debunked, with research showing they have no effect on the enjoyment of sex.
Research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, by scientists at Indiana University, found that sex was just as arousing and pleasurable when condoms and/or lubricants were used compared with when they were not.
People often believe condoms hinder sexual pleasure because they reduce sensitivity. There are also many instances where men refuse to wear condoms for this reason.
A 2007 article in the Nursing Standard said: “Some people suggest that they lose sensation when using condoms. Men sometimes indicate that condoms are restrictive and uncomfortable to wear.
“Some men and women would like their partners to use a condom but their partner may refuse because of their need to exert power and control.”
No more excuses…..
