We can not deny the fact that Condoms have been a great help to preventing sexual transmitted diseases such as HIV and it is also a birth control method which many use to prevent unwanted pregnancies. We could go on and on talking about the advantages of condoms but let’s not forget the disadvantages also.
Well, this article presents five major disadvantages of using condom either to prevent diseases or as a birth control method. Check them out.
1) IT IS NOT 100% PROTECTIVE
Condoms do not protect us 100% from some sexual transmitted diseases such as HIV and scabies infection which is an infection caused by parasitic mites and just like lice, this mites burrow into the skin and could be transmitted during sex, causing itching on the outer areas of the skin that could not be covered by the condom.
Note that this parasites could be seen with the bare eyes and often survive by staying in the pubic hair.
2) CONDOM REDUCE SEXUAL SATISFACTION
It has been discovered that most partners complain when using condom as it reduces sexual satisfaction whereas those that have had skin to skin sex and also had condom sex could testify to the fact that skin to skin is the best form of sex as it gives one this good feeling of being satisfied.
Note that some men even find it very hard to have an erection when using condom which could be a very embarrassing situation and thus cause both parties to get frustrated and not enjoy their copulation at all.
3) IT CAN BREAK DURING THE ACT
Condoms are not very strong and can break during sex. This in some cases cause unwanted pregnancy or even sexually transmitted diseases.
Imagine a situation where someone wasn’t careful while using condom and it breaks, not only can it completely ruin the sexual mood, it will be a disaster if after such encounter, one finds out later that one is infected with a sexually transmitted disease or end up pregnant.
4) IT CAUSES SKIN IRRITATION
Some men are allergic to the latex used to produce condoms. Even though study shows that a very few number of men are allergic to condoms, we can’t still ignore the fact that there are men out there that face such. Not just the men only, as some women too have to deal with the friction that comes with using condom which could cause pains during sexual intercourse.
For such people, instead of enjoying it, the reverse would be the case and they might end up going for treatment after it.
5)THE USE OF CONDOM CAUSE WOMEN TO BE LESS HAPPY
Although this looks funny, a research was carried out concerning this and it was discovered that women that have sex with condom are less happy while those that have without Condoms are happier.
I know you may doubt this, but the truth is that most women complain of being dry during sex with condoms which is not because their bodies stopped producing moisture, but because the excitement one gets from doing it skin to skin is not there thus making them drier.
6) IT REDUCES THE LEVEL OF TRUST AMONG PARTNERS
When a lady insists that her man should use condom before they have sex, sometimes, the man might think it is because she doesn’t trust him enough and vise versa.
Skin to skin sex is mostly translated as love, commitment and trust in most relationships. For someone to have sex with you without condom, it means the person trusts you with their life. This is very common with married couples as most husbands wouldn’t even agree to use condom for birth control and if their wives should insist, they simply see that as lack of trust.
