I can’t final lengthy bareback and he or she doesn’t like condoms
Q: I’m in a little bit of a predicament close to my relationship with my girlfriend. We’re each in our 20s and have been in a relationship for over a yr now. We not too long ago grew to become sexually lively. She was a virgin. Nonetheless, I used to be not.
Our intercourse life has been okay at instances. The difficulty is that she doesn’t like condoms as a result of she is allergic to the latex. I attempted utilizing the non-latex condoms which works high-quality, however she doesn’t like the texture of the condom within her, as she says she just isn’t feeling me the way in which she needs to. She needs it ‘bareback’ on a regular basis and every time we’re about to have intercourse and I try so slip on a condom, she tries to take it from me.
Utilizing a condom prevents pregnancies, which we each need to keep away from. She doesn’t prefer to take birth-control capsules as nicely, due to the hormonal modifications that have an effect on her. Furthermore, I can’t final lengthy going bareback, as I common about three to 5 minutes, if that a lot. Utilizing a condom permits me to go for 40 minutes to an hour through the first spherical, because the sensations in my penis aren’t so excessive, versus going bareback. I don’t need to be having intercourse for about three to 5 minutes as a result of that isn’t satisfying sufficient for each of us, nor do I desire a youngster right now.
Please advise. Thanks upfront.
