    So we all hear how Straight people get pregnant from a condom supposedly breaking. My view is that this is a lie, as someone who has topped more than a few times in my life I have only ever had 1 condom break and that happened while going in.
    So men how many condoms have broken while you've been fucking? either as a top or bottom.

    It happened to me once, way back when I was a slut, before AIDS. Curiously, for me, we were even in a bed. The poor guy was bi and freaked out that he'd catch something and give it to his girlfriend. I mainly remember how incredibly hot he was; hung, handsome, and a body to die for. Ah, memories.

    Happened to me once, many years ago. I was freaked for weeks.

    When I was still dating women I had one break "in service." I discovered it after I had cum and withdrawn. I told her, and she said she thought she had felt it snap.

    I asked her why she hadn't said anything, because I would have checked and replaced it, not having felt anything myself. She said because she wasn't sure and didn't want to interrupt things, but it really wouldn't have been any big deal to me.

    After that I only used XLs and never had that happen again, including when I began topping men. Nor has any top ever broken one with me as the bottom, but I've talked to guys who claimed to have had them break.

    Sometimes even if you can't see a clear break in the condom there are some small breaks in it. After you have sex if you want to see how well your condom held up you can pour water into it. See if there are any leaks. A professor challenged our class to try and do that after we had sex, I was shocked to see how the condoms I had been using held up. I went threw several brands and still had problems. It wasn't all the time but it was interesting to see and the reactions of some of the women in our discussion was fantastic. They looked like they wanted to stock up on Plan B pills…..

    I told my long term partner there was no need for condoms because I was "clean" and therefore would never need one and he was cool with that. So I don't wear one when I am banging the living bejesus out of him. So far, so good.

    I only use Female Condoms. They don't break. Every. Plus they're super baggy and it's like wearing nothing at all.

    Once, when I was fucking a guy. Would that be 1 out of 200 times? 300 times?

    I wondered about those.

    They seem like they'd be a pain in the ass (pardon the pun) to insert though. icon_confused.gif


    Are you having a laugh?

    You don't insert them like you would with a vagina. Vaginas are large gapping holes where inserting a condom is like tossing a sheet in the dryer. Assholes are different....just place on the dick and it just kinda stays put once inside. icon_biggrin.gif

    Unless your fucking like a bull in heat they will not usually break, but pull out a couple of times and take a peak, and double up if its a marathon group day.

    Actually double wrapping is a bad idea. The two condoms rubbing together makes for a lot of friction and makes them MORE likely to break. If you notice a break, stop and replace it, don't just out another one over it.

    Don't double up. I think I've heard don't double up more than just having protected sex. Use Lube, and don't go cheap. if you are using your free condoms from the last pride, they just might break. Condoms have a shelf life.

    I broke two in succession. It was the type of lube, it broke them down quickly.

    I don't trust anecdotal evidence too much, especially regarding sexual matters.

    "In typical use, condoms are around 85% effective, or present a
    15% risk of pregnancy. But in perfect use, they’re about 98% effective,
    or present about a 2% risk of pregnancy. That’s the case whether
    it’s the first time someone is having sex or the 201st: what sexual
    experience you have or have not had does not change the effectiveness
    rate of a contraceptive."

    Of the hundreds I must have gone through in life, I've only had 1 break. One of the very first I ever, ever used, and it was with a girl.

    the lube we used broke it down and it snapped upon entry. we changed it out and didn't lube it and it worked fine.

    Ever since, I've been careful with a rubber-lube combo that won't break down.

    Of course, since my monogamous BF and I have been thoroughly tested and 100% clean and free, we've been hittin it raw.

    Mmmm.....

    Actually, twice or thrice in a single hook-up. But I think it was more due to the quality of condoms. I got it from those HIV testing clinics where they distribute it for free.
    This is the only time it happened to me.
