Condoms and Youth

Written by Mystic on Tuesday, January 29, 2008


  • Condoms don't give 100% protection against STDs, AIDS, or pregnancy. Only Abstinence from sex can do that!

  • Sex with a condom does feel different but not worse.

  • Improper knowledge of using condoms is the prime reason for it's failure.

  • Some of the STDs that condoms can help protect you from are AIDS, herpes simplex virus (HSV), human papiloma virus (HPV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), Chlamydia trachomatis, and Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

  • Latex condoms afford greater protection against viral STDs than natural membrane condoms.

  • Condom users and their partners are less likely to get gonorrhea, pelvic inflammatory disease and cervical cancer.

  • For STD and AIDS protection it is essential to use condoms during oral sex.

  • You should never use an oil based lubricant (baby oil, cold cream, vaseline, hand cream or any cooking oil) with a condom since it can cause the latex to break.
