We're not really NEW anymore, but I can say that we truly do insist on condoms when we play. It's not that we're really worried about pregnancy, so much as we still have STD fears. I guess, as we get older and those in our peer group are soccer moms and more settled in, we may change our minds. Actually, we've considered it with one couple, but haven't had an opportunity to play with them since we've discussed it and we don't know how they'd feel about it. I absolutely abhor condoms (the smell, the taste ), but right now, I'd hate to contract a disease worse than I hate rubbers.
