So it finally happened. I can not, for the life of me, use condoms. I feel no pleasure at all, despite whatever specialists have to say. I've tried a lot of condoms, a lot of sizes... but to no avail. Make no mistake, I can "function" within a condom... but I feel no pleasure from the act, to the point where I have turned down sex when condoms where imperative. I was completly into the girl and next minute I was like: "whatever, let's watch a movie". (this is no blaming on the girls... they are more than right in demanding a condom). Well... it turns out I had to spend some quality time in a hospital last week. Got some intensive care, plus some medicines for ovr a week. Luckily, I got no serious STD (like HIV) and I'm all clean now. It's a sad fact, however, that I still can not deal with condoms. As it stands, I have a few options on my book: 1) Get a steady gf (not in a mood right now) 2) Stop having sex altogether... or get some paid sex for foreplay and oral only (still not 100% safe) 3) Go on risking my luck. This is not a thread where I'm asking for advice... I'm well educated enough to know where I stand right now. It's more of a need to share my pain with this wonderful community. So there... Pax all.
