(MedXpress) Led by Debby Herbenick, PhD, MPH and Michael Reece, PhD, MPH, of the School of Public Health-Bloomington, Indiana University, researchers reviewed a nationally representative study of men and women in the United States ages 18-59 to assess characteristics of condom and lubricant use during participants’ most recent sexual event, and the relationship of their condom and lubricant use to their ratings of sexual quality. Data were from the 2009 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, which involved the administration of an online questionnaire to a nationally representative probability sample of the U.S. adults. Results showed that men and women consistently rate sex as highly arousing and pleasurable with few differences based on condom or lubricant use. More than twice as many women were unsure whether the condom was lubricated (26.6% vs. 11.4%) or from what material it was made (23.6% vs. 8.9%). Additionally, no significant differences were found in regard to men’s ratings of the ease of their erections based on condom and lubricant use.

 

Everybody is talking about this story today throwing out all sorts of facts to disprove this theory. Listen it’s real simple.   If condoms don’t take away from the pleasure of sex why do I last 7 seconds raw dog and 37 seconds with a condom on.   Case closed.
