Female Condoms

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, just wanted to share this with you all!

I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1 at the beginning of Oct. Yes it was devastating at first, but since then I have more or less come to terms with it.

I have also been seeing a guy for about a month. up until this weekend, we hadn't slept together. He didn't mind just cuddling and making out and didn't ask why we we're going to the bone zone yet. Finally, I knew I had to tell him and when I did he didn't care at all. He's younger than me, but it blows my mind how mature he is when it comes to this. We talked about it and he asked if I had ever considered using female condoms.

I hadn't considered it, the thought never even crossed my mind. He told me his doctor suggested it when he was dealing with an HPV infection. The female condom covers a lot more surface area than a male condom (basically covers most of the labia etc) and therefore offers more protection.

Long story short: I went to a women's sex shop and bought myself a bunch of them (they're expensive, but I think you can get them at sexual health clinics for free etc). We have had sex twice using female condoms and while they are a little floppy and silly looking, they don't take away any more sensation than male condoms. They take some getting used to when you're putting them in, but all in all I think it's totally worth the trouble/price. Once it's in and the sex has begun, you don't even notice them at all.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for sharing. I have never heard of such a thing. I am most impressed with your guy and his openness to you after telling him. Gives me hope.
