 The Condom Talk

He wants to stop using condoms. It may just be a little piece of rubber, but it has big implications. “Sex is sex is sex and any guy would rather have sex with a condom then not at all.  Until you are 100% absolutely comfortable going bare back, tell him he better deal and that’s all there is to it,” dating expert Lauren Rich advises.

We talked to real women about how the condom conversation went down, and how to make it go smoothly.

1. Have the conversation: You may not want to bring it up because you don’t want to have a serious conversation and appear “needy,” but sorry, your health and a possible pregnancy is something you have to talk about, so if he keeps bringing up not using condoms, you just need to talk about it and pick the right time to talk. While you are getting all hot and heavy on the couch next to an empty bottle of wine and he is begging you not to use one is not the time. Pick a time during the day, in person, when you are both sober.

2. Get tested: One gal we talked to asked any guy she got serious enough with to stop using condoms to get tested. “If he really likes you and is a good, health conscious person, he will agree,” Alexa from Los Angeles says. “If he accuses you of not trusting him or of being dirty, then he is immature.” Suggesting being tested also helps you weed out douchebags who you wouldn’t want to be with long term anyway.

  1. Years ago when I was dating and before anyone worried much about STDs and pregnancy was still the big fear I had one guy who insisted he was actually confirmed to be sterile so I wouldn’t make him use a condom. I pointed out to him that since I seldom wore underpants it would leave me too messy on the way home. That worked!

  2. I really hope that women are smart enough to use condoms, and get tested as a couple before having sex without condoms. There’s nothing shameful, wrong or dirty about you and your guy getting tested — it’s evidence that you respect yourselves an each other.
