Condoms - No Glove, No Love

How to make him use a condom

First time sex? New partner? Condoms are not always at hand when that special moment happens. While some men are sensible enough to carry and use condoms, others will try to persuade you to have sex without one. Stay safe from unplanned pregnancy and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's) by carrying condoms - and using them everytime you and your partner have sex.

  1. If a man says he doesn't want to use a condom, tell him you don't want to get pregnant. Even if a man is willing to risk an STI, he's unlikely to want to risk an unplanned pregnancy.
  2. Using a condom shows you respect your partner. If he doesn't respect you enough to help both of you stay safe, is he really worth having sex with?
  3. If he says he wants to feel close to you, tell him that being able to relax and know sex is safe will make you feel much closer to him than worrying about the consquences otherwise.
  4. Should he persist with not wanting to use one, tell him that you don't want to put him at risk of any STI's. Even if you've only given a blow job to a partner in the past, there's a chance you could have contracted something.
  5. If a man says unprotected sex will make him love you more, tell him that if he loved you, he wouldn't expect you to expose yourself to any risk.
  6. If a man says he loves you so you don't need to have safe sex, tell him love doesn't protect against STI's.
  7. If a man calls you immature for refusing to have unprotected sex, tell him you're mature enough to keep yourself safe. It's immature people who take unnecessary risks.
  8. If he says that condoms make sex less enjoyable for him, that is definetly not the case, as Durex offer a wide range of condoms that enhance sex for him (and you). We produce condoms that can make him last longer and that offer much more feeling, all of which he might not be aware of currently. Explore our range of condoms here. Our Performa condoms make him last longer in bed; while our Fetherlite Ultra and Fetherlite condoms enhance feeling for him during sex.
  9. Make sure that you always have condoms available to avoid disappointment when that moment strikes.
  10. If a man refuses to let you use a condom, refuse to have sex. There are other ways you can have fun in the bedroom, and get pleasure without risking an STI or unplanned pregnancy - though if he's unwilling to use a condom, you may want to question whether he's worth getting intimate with at all.

Condoms - some men may carry them but others don't and don't enjoy using them. So, play it safe by taking the lead and insist on using them. Love Sex. Durex.
