Sex still enjoyable without condom

A study of American men and women found that sex was rated as highly arousing and pleasurable whether or not condoms and/or lubricants were used.

A new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine reveals that within a nationally representative study of American men and women, sex was rated as highly arousing and pleasurable whether or not condoms and/or lubricants were used. Condoms and lubricants are commonly used by both women and men when they have sex.

"This may be because men are more likely than women to purchase condoms and to apply condoms," said Dr Herbenick. "However, it's important for more women to become familiar with the condoms they use with their partner so that they can make choices that enhance the safety and pleasure of their sexual experiences."
