Do condoms have holes in them?
Dear Sex Doc,
Iíve been having sex with my boyfriend for the past 6 months using only condoms. Now, my best friend tells me that condoms donít work. She said that condoms have holes in them larger than sperm and most STD viruses, including HIV. Is this true?
Dear Perplexed Patty,
No, this is misinformation if you are talking about latex or polyurethane (plastic) condoms. Almost all condoms are made with these materials. However, you can also get lambskin condoms, which could have holes that these things could pass through. Also, any condom labeled Ďfor novelty purposes onlyí will not protect an individual from pregnancy or STIs. So if a condom glows in the dark, has a huge plastic daisy at the tip, or if it sings happy birthday as Mr. Happy gets busy, it isnít a real condom.
If used perfectly, latex and polyurethane condoms are 90% effective against pregnancy and greatly reduce the chances of getting a sexually transmitted infection. Forever Pleasure only carries top quality latex and polyurethane condoms.
Further, a great website to learn more about safer sex and STIs is www.sexualityandu.ca.
Best regards,Dr. Brian Parker
