Condoms & pleasure
Posted on: 06/05/2007
Does wearing a condom decrease the sexual pleasure for the male/female? I heard a lot about that wearing a condom will decrease the pleasure for both female and male is that true?
The trick with condoms is to be comfortable and to use a couple drops of water-based lubricant on the tip of the penis before putting the condom on (to increase the males pleasure) and on the outside (to increase the females pleasure). Practice so you are comfortable before trying to do this with a partner.
