Whether condoms ruin sexual pleasure or not has been a matter of debate in the recent past, in which unprotected sex has become quite common. There is a constant tussle between the viewpoints of people engaging in intercourse and brand owners occupied with endorsement as well as research workers as to the drawbacks and advantages of using a condom during sex.
While condoms have the advantage of preventing the spread of venereal diseases, it has drawbacks too, which include occasional leaks and a seizure of pleasure. So how exactly do they ruin pleasure?
CREATES A BREAK IN THE FLOW OF LOVEMAKING
Lovemaking does not merely comprise intercourse, it includes very many things that precede it and follow it. It consists of foreplay, intercourse and cuddling afterwards. During moments of arousal, while touching and feeling our beloveds, we tend to move, shift, budge and swing over and under each other in the heat of extravagant passion. Amidst that kind of intense intimacy, to have to take a condom out of its bag, to put it on so that it fits perfectly and check as to whether it has leaks is like pouring water to a new born flame, so that you have to start it again from the prelim. So damn strenuous and irksome isn’t it?
CAMOUFLAGES THE NATURAL SCENT AND FLAVOUR OF THE BODY FLUIDS
There was a time when condoms had extremely repulsive smells to them that it tended to stand out distracting one, from the moment of utter pleasure during lovemaking, also hindering oral sex. Nowadays even though flavoured condoms does away with the otherwise repulsive smell of the traditional condoms, it blocks out the original flavour and taste of the sap and releases a pungent odour after a while, its smell having blended with the smell of the body fluids.
ACTS AS A BARRIER TO DIRECT CONTACT OF SKIN
Condoms may not be as thick a material as a jean covering the man parts of your mate but they are like a fake layer of skin that obstructs the real skins from meeting with each other in an unadulterated manner. It is as if you’re eating your favourite dish with a burnt tongue. You know you are eating it but you can’t savour it can you? The natural friction that is caused by the meeting and rubbing of the skins against each other is lost. The journey feels too smooth to be real.
OBSTRUCTS THE WARM LIQUID OF PLEASURE FROM SEEPING IN
It is an amazing feeling altogether to have your man’s potion trickle into your body. It emits a feeling of love, unity, togetherness, and immense intimacy. Condoms block the natural body fluids from flowing freely, making the whole process of lovemaking way too mechanical and less passionate so that the act of lovemaking cannot be enjoyed in its courser and truer form having left behind conscious thoughts and letting oneself be overcome with passion and ardour.
CREATES A PSYCHOLOGICAL OBSTACLE TO PLEASURE
Pleasure is very much psychological as much as it is physical. The thought of having sex wearing a condom itself is very repelling. We have a preconceived notion of the fact that condoms prevent the wholesome feeling of pleasure during sexual intercourse. So that wearing a condom in its self can diminish feelings of contentment. Much of the pleasure is lost not only because of the obstruction that condoms cause but because of the feelings of defiance towards it.
There are plenty of variants to condoms that you can opt for to see which ones suit you better and if you are against using one at all, you could consult a doctor regarding the use of any kinds of pill or drugs that can compensate for the pleasure wrecking condoms. Have fun and stay safe!
