In this piece, we’re debunking 3 more myths about the condoms. The condom is still the only method that prevents pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, so it’s important to use it every time you have sex. Here are some of these myths that we’re gonna dismantle today:
Myth: Condoms take all the fun away
BUSTED: There are many different shapes, sizes, and textures of condoms. Find the condom that works best for you, and you will find sex to be as enjoyable. Even more importantly, using a condom puts your mind at ease- knowing that you don’t have to worry about sexually transmitted infections like syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and HIV.
Myth: Two condoms are better than one
BUSTED: This is absolutely false! Using two condoms increases the risk of tears when the two condoms rub against each other. Use only one condom in each encounter to protect yourself from pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
Myth: Condoms cost a lot of money
BUSTED: False again. Many Clinics, as well as Planned Parenthood offer condoms for free. Also check in with your school clinic as well. Click HERE for locations in Houston where condoms are free!
Safe sex is the best sex- Always.
