Ok, this one may be a little personal. We've read a lot of posts and received a lot of responses to our questions about rules/guidelines that we posted here. Among all of them, one thing stands out....condom use. The reasons to use them are pretty self explanatory. What we are curious about is why some people choose not too. C has some sensitivity issues due to nerve damage from an accident when he was younger, and because of that, condom use makes sex fairly difficult. The issues with condoms and safety (STDs, accidental pregnancy--I'm consistently on the pill so not an issue at home) have been our greatest stumbling block, and most discussed topic. Despite both wanting to explore the LS, we have, at times gotten very discouraged because we don't know how to handle or approach this. Does anyone have any insight to offer or similar problems? Or perhaps any suggestions of condom brands/types that might be worth trying at home to see if they might work for us? We know it is something to be absolutely upfront with when talking to other couples or singles, and in order to go bareback with anyone, we would have to get to know the couple really well, and be tested regularly. Are there any other considerations we need to take into account with this issue?
We realize this can be a sensitive issue.... for any response and information you can offer!!! You guys have all been awesome to us!!!
