Getting the best protection for anal sex
As a sex experimentalist, I always keep my eyes open for new gadgets and toys. So as usual, today I was doing some research into the different contraceptives available and came across this article. This means that soon there’s going to be even options available – yay!
I can’t tell which came first, the Bill Gates Foundation Grant, or Origami Condoms. In any case, this company has some pretty interesting ideas, even if at first I was apprehensive about their name (I was kind of scared at first when I thought of an erect penis being folded up into different shapes) but as I read about the company I realized that the name suits it well. They call themselves Origami Condoms because their condoms (right, not the penis – I guess I had a blond moment!) fold up. When you take these re-designed beauties out from their packages they actually fold out accordion-style. Wow, that sounds like music to my ears!
I have to say that I’ve been using condoms for years, and every single condom that I’ve ever opened be it latex, lambskin, flavoured, ultra-thin, tingly, prickly- whatever the condom, I’m always disappointed that I have to roll that thing out – it’s like putting on tight swim cap! Oh, and God forbid that you start putting it on the wrong direction! It is, what can only be described as, a Pain!
Secondly, I was impressed by its bold statement of having the world’s first anal condom (insert heavenly singing here!). I have to tell you about this so you can fully understand my issue with not having ever used an anal condom. So, my partner and I really enjoy anal sex but we really struggled using condoms in the beginning. When I said earlier that I’ve tried them all, I really wasn’t joking. I left no rubber uncovered in my search for the right condom and while I managed to find something that suited us better… I’m still open to finding an upgrade.
Everyone knows that with anal sex lots of lube goes a long way, so I started out with the extra lubed condoms, which frankly were really good at slipping off – thanks a lot for the protection, lame-ass condom! Next I tried the different tingly, make you harder ones, but honestly after a while I just got sick of that latex smell. Finally I went for the lambskins just out of curiosity. Personally, I find lambskins to be way better than those thin sensation blah-blah-blah fancy condoms. They have a much more comfortable feel that I appreciate. I’ve definitely been converted into a skins-type, but I’ll go for the old latex condoms if ever I’m in a bind.
But let’s get back to these specially designed anal condoms! The advantages of this particular form are said to be the following: “1. Easy insertion method that positions and anchors the condom internally and 2. The tubular structure of the condom provides a natural internal liner for the penis in the internally lubricated condom.”
Of course I’m a little sceptical due to bad experiences with over lubed condoms that slip off, but I’m so looking forward to give another rubber a try. These origami condoms are supposed to come out next year.
Even though condoms aren’t perfect, they’re still a part of my routine to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle. If anyone’s hears of any new contraceptives out there that I haven’t mentioned, be sure to hit me up.
I’d love an excuse to try something new!
