The FC2 condom is a great alternative to the male, aka external, condom. The FC2 works for both male and female bodies, and it is often used for anal sex.
Have you ever used an internal condom like the FC2?
A study published in Sex Roles journal by Lisa Rosenthal from Yale University investigates how perceived “normal” gender roles impact confidence in sexual situations and safer sex practices.
The study participants were 357 women and 126 men that were all undergraduates at a Northeastern U.S. university. They all reported being heterosexual and sexually active. The study had participants fill out a survey on their sexual confidence and sexual assertiveness. There was also a bowl of female (aka internal) condoms placed in the cubicle with a sign that read: “Protect yourself and your partner. Please take some! Free Female Condoms.”
Since I’ve been on a condom kick lately, let me tell you about the HUGE news for safer sex. Ben Pawle designed a condom wrapper for people with hemiplegia, a condition that leaves one side of the body paralyzed.
Little did Mr. Pawle know he was creating a product that thousands, maybe millions of people have fantasized about. The condom wrapper is designed with a perforated seam on the middle of the wrapper, so the user can snap it between his or her fingers. No more tearing the wrapper with your teeth or fumbling with lubey fingers (you should always use a dab of lube on the inside and outside of condoms because it decreases the likelihood of them breaking, not to mention it feels amazing!).
