A Man And His Member by David M. Matthews

Lately there has been a proliferation of bad news: Deadlocked Washington legislators, corporate insolvency, war, famine, natural disaster, and the final airing of “How I Met Your Mother.”  Thus, rather than deal with anything too serious in this column, I decided to be a little more light-hearted.  The following is the result - an ode to the bond between men and their “manhood,” aimed primarily at our female readers.

To say, “Penises are attached to men,” is to simply state a fact.  But saying, “Men are attached to their penises,” is to proclaim an absolute truth.

As you may already know, nothing is so prized a possession to the average male as his own penis.  And while straight men have little or no interest in the external plumbing of their brethren (other than as a supporting character in a porno), they can become downright sentimental when pondering their close relationship to their own equipment.  To put it bluntly, most men consider their penis to be their best friend.  Sure, we are hugely attracted to women.  And yes, we enjoy the hell out of spending an evening of football, hot wings and frosty brews with our buds.  And true, our slipper-fetching Fido is among our favorite companions.  But our true BFF is that roll of flesh we keep sequestered in our shorts.

And why is “cherish” the word we use to describe our penis?  Three reasons: Loyalty, reliability and shared common interests.  As long as we can remember, our penis has been there for us.  Before we even understood its function as “party central,” we appreciated it as the visible symbol of our masculinity, the release valve for our bursting bladders, and a dandy way to practice our cursive in the snow.  Then when puberty hit, and all our hormones executed a blitzkrieg of our nether regions, our penises were there to rise to the occasion.  Suddenly the whole world of sexuality opened up for us, and it was our trusty tumescent friends who led the way.  In times of loneliness, frustration or insomnia, it was our penises that helped us relieve our pent-up tensions.  Participation in sports was a fine source of stress relief, but sadly not always convenient or available.  Our trusty wieners, however, were ever-ready for action, even late at night and in inclement weather. 

As I’m sure some of you are well aware, our affection is so great, that many of us even endow our endowment with a nickname.  These monikers can run the gamut from whimsical (“Mr. Happy”) to blatantly boastful (“Sasquatch”).  And so concerned are we about our units’ continued good health, that we faithfully endeavor to make certain our “little soldiers” get regular exercise.  That’s just how considerate we guys are.

Now you may be asking yourself, “What about his testicles?  He hasn’t even touched on them.  What are they…chopped liver (I shudder at the very image)?”  Well, the truth is, as much as we love and respect this secondary erogenous zone and sperm manufacturing facility, our balls are the “Achilles heel” of our genital compound.  They are our weakest link; our most vulnerable spot.  Truthfully, we are barely even cognizant of their existence until they are the unfortunate victim of a blunt force trauma.  Then, however, their presence drowns out our awareness of virtually all the rest of our anatomy.  So, while we wouldn’t want to part with them, the periodic pain associated with our family jewels prevents us from rhapsodizing about them as we do their neighbor to the north.

So you see, our fondness for our own penises cannot be overstated, and our allegiance to them should not be underestimated.  And why would you be interested in any of this (optimistically hoping, of course, that you are - and haven’t been “put off” by my dissertation on “a dude and his dingus”)? Because despite our dogged devotion to our penises, there is an anatomical accoutrement over which you have exclusive dominion that we are even more obsessed with.  I am referring to, of course… vaginas. We’re absolutely nutty about them.  And luckily, so are our little pals.  In fact, this popular destination is the top-rated gated community in which ten-out-of-ten female-seeking penises prefer to reside.  Be it ever so warm and cozy, there’s no place like home.

Did You Miss National Orgasm Day? Tips from The Sex MD.

National Orgasm Day, July 31, 2014, has come and gone but we’re still celebrating and we want you to come with us!  Joking aside, many, if not most of us, have too few orgasms. And it’s high time to fix that!

Here are some great tips for putting the big “O” back on top as a national priority and enjoying bodacious orgasms on a regular basis. These points come from “The Sex MD.,” Dr. Madeleine Castellanos, who is a respected author and sex therapist in New York. She says, “Our sexual functioning cannot be separated from our overall health and happiness.” In other words, good orgasms = good health!
  

Dr. C’s tips:
1) Getting to orgasm is easiest when you are relaxed and focused on what’s erotic for you.

2) Learning how to time your breathing can help you reach orgasm more easily.

3) Orgasms cause the release of increased DHEA which is what makes your skin glow and look younger.

4) Using Wet Platinum Premium Silicone Lubricant, accepted as a 510(k) medical device, makes great sex viable and long-lasting even in the shower.  Caution: Very slippery!

5) Orgasms come in all sizes and intensities, so take the time to explore all the variations.

6) Even though orgasms are fantastic, the less you focus on them as a goal in sex, the more likely you are to heighten your arousal and actually reach orgasm.

7) Orgasms help a woman’s brain relax more profoundly than any other activity, even meditation.

8)  If you aren’t getting regular orgasms from sexual activity, take matters into your own hands and masturbate so you can orgasm at least 3 times per week.

9) Using an intimate health and stimulation device strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, which are key to achieving healthy orgasms and also preventing incontinence.

It's Fresh. Clean. Sexy. Fun.

Do You Nuru? The Playboy Morning Show Girls Do!






On July 7th, The Playboy Radio Morning Show hosts Kevin Klein and Andrea Lowell provided a blow by blow commentary as three gorgeous models demonstrated the Nuru body-on-body Japanese massage technique on each other. Thank you, Hugh Hefner!

In the West, massage mainly involves hands-on-body, but not so with Nuru. In the East, they invented a more effective way to stimulate the nerves in the skin by exponentially multiplying the surfaces of touch. Two participants (or more). Totally nude. Coated with Wet® Nuru™ Body-on-Body Massage Gel. Get the picture? Body-on-body enjoyment is the ultimate erotic massage experience. The ultimate “contact high.”

Model #1 began by massaging Wet Nuru gel into her breasts. “I could watch that forever,” said host Andrea Lowell, who clearly thought Model #1 was doing a great job. Next, Model #2 poured the Wet product onto her own breasts and then onto Model #1's back and proceeded to administer “the rack massage,” in which she slid her breasts over the other girl's back, then over her butt, and pretty soon it was hard to tell who was giving and who was receiving the massage. Happy ending: A good time was had by all!

So we know summer is in full swing, but isn't it time to turn up the heat and give your lover a sensuous Nuru massage.  What is Nuru Massage exactly? Nuru is a style of massage that originated in Japan. It is a sensual massage between partners using full body contact to relax the body and stimulate mutual sexual appetites, done with both partners fully nude, using a thick, ultra slippery massage gel. Wet® Nuru™ Massage Gel is available in two formulas, Original and Concentrate, both with moisturizing Aloe Vera, Seaweed and Grapeseed Extracts and soothing Chamomile Flower extract. These formulas are 
designed for long-lasting play. Wet® Nuru™ Massage Gel is made in the U.S.A. with the highest quality ingredients.

10 Reasons to Use Wet Platinum



Why Wet Platinum? Here are 10 of the top reasons to use Wet Platinum.

1. Wet Platinum Stays Wet Longer.
Wet Platinum is a silicone-based lubricant. Unlike water-based lubricants, silicone molecules are large and are not absorbed, so they remain on the surface of the skin. Because Wet Platinum contains no water, it does not evaporate either, giving you longer-lasting, slippery, friction-free love making and play sessions. There is no mood-breaking, stopping to re-apply necessary. Platinum is always slick, guaranteed never sticky, and doesn’t dry out.

2. Wet Platinum Makes Sex Better.
Vaginal dryness and anal sex without lube nearby, is sure to stop pleasurable intercourse in its tracks. At least one partner at this point may feel turned off and be thinking “I could really use some lubricant right now!” With the mood already at stake, you’re going to need something you can grab quick, apply, and be able to get your groove on. Wet Platinum is the best choice because it’s easy as 1, 2, and 3! Grab it, squeeze it, apply it and you’re ready to go. Absolutely no need to worry because Platinum gives you the perfect slippery glide, and won’t become messy, clumped up, dried out, or sticky. Platinum also won’t burn or disrupt your pH Balance. And since it won’t dry out, you just need a small amount. Apply Wet Platinum to your penis, vagina, sex toys*, and interior/exterior of your condom or anywhere else your heart desires, slip right in, work your magic and enjoy the ride.

*Please note that Wet Platinum is not recommended for use with silicone toys.

3.  Wet Platinum is Safer.
A 2010 Study by Microbicides: Building Bridges in HIV Prevention, named the Use Of Lubricants, Unprotected Anal Sex and the Risk of HIV, compared five lubricants against each other (Astroglide, Elbow Grease, ID Glide, KY Jelly and Wet Platinum). A sixth product named PRÉ was used as a control. The study was looking for the safest lubricant that did the least amount of damage to cellular walls, during anal sex. Damage to cell walls during sex can cause tearing and increase the likelihood of transmission of STI's. The study concluded that "Wet Platinum and PRÉ were the safest. The hyperosmolar nature of the other lubricant gels was associated with cellular toxicity and may lead to increased risk of HIV infection." Wet was the only silicone-based lubricant in the study. The others were water-based. This and one other study examining the effects of sexual lubricants used in anal sex were presented in April at the International Microbicides Conference.

Safety Precaution:  Wet Platinum is very slippery so take care to clean any spills immediately. 

4. Wet Platinum Has Many Uses. 
Dab it in your hair for some shine. Condition your skin and Latex Fetish Wear. Use it for vaginal and/or anal sex. Masturbate in the shower or in bed. Use a palm size amount to give your partner a sensual massage (and it won’t dry up!). Use it to get a really close shave, but be careful not to slip on it in the shower. Put a drop of Platinum on a sticking door or cabinet to stop the squeaking, or use it to untangle knotted bicycle or jewelry chains. Glide it over your body and slip easily in to your wetsuit. Detangle the tail and mane of your horse. The possibilities are endless!

5.  Wet Platinum Uses the Highest Quality Ingredients and is a 510k Accepted Medical Device.
Wet Platinum uses ingredients that are non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism), gluten-free, vegan friendly, and contains only plant derived glycerin. Wet Platinum is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) accepted, Class II medical device. It is also certified Kosher.  That’s right!  Platinum contains no animal-based ingredients and is manufactured and self-certified according to guidelines set forth by the Rabbinical Council of California.

6.  No Smell. No Taste. 
A common complaint about personal lubricants is the way they taste and/or smell.
We take this complaint seriously. While Wet Platinum is an accepted medical device, it does not smell or taste like an antiseptic or any other chemical. It’s completely odorless, has no taste and is considered harmless if ingested.

7.  Doctor Recommended.
The Wet Platinum formula is non-irritating.  Since it has no pH, it won’t disrupt a woman’s pH balance.  Wet products are sampled in medical offices throughout the United States and Canada and have received stellar patient reviews and recommendations from medical doctors. Read more about why Wet is doctor recommended.

8.  Available Everywhere.
Wet has been widely available in love boutiques since 1989.  We understand that not everyone is comfortable visiting their local adult boutique and not all of us live in a city where adult boutiques exist. The adult boutiques do offer a wider selection of Wet products and other intimacy products so check them out if you have the opportunity.  For your convenience, Wet is now widely available in all major pharmacies and mass market retailers across the United States and Canada, and is available online as well, with discreet shipping at www.buywet.com.

“Not a day goes by that I do not mention your products,” says Dr. Jacob Klein. “The availability in CVS and Walgreens has certainly helped.”

9.  Can Be Used in Water.
There really is nothing better than hot sex in the shower. Besides installing handles on your shower walls to hold on to during your steamy sessions, the next essential item is a bottle of waterproof lubricant. Take silicone-based Wet Platinum in the shower with you, squirt some on your fingers, apply to self and/or partner and you’re ready to go. Wet Platinum can also be used in Jacuzzis, lakes, rivers, oceans, bathtubs, and swimming pools. The water will roll over the lube like a bead of water on a leaf. When you’re done and want to clean up just lather up and rinse off, or carry a package of baby wipes on you for fast efficient clean up.
Caution:  Silicone lubricants will break down the silicone seals on your hot tubs, spas and pools over time so it’s best to use it sparingly.

10.  It’s Good Karma! 
We believe that companies are like individuals, each creating their own "Karma." Giving back has been paramount to us since our inception. Through our charitable giving program, we contribute to the work of more than 300 non-profit organizations worldwide.

5 Reasons Doctors Recommend Wet Personal Lubricant



Sex. It’s something we all do. It’s something we all think about. It’s something we all desire. But what happens when sex becomes painful or you just can’t get aroused?

For men, arousal disorders typically come in the form of failure to have or maintain an erection long enough for sex to occur. The solution is simple: Viagra.

For women the answer is not so easy. Women face a number of issues that can decrease her libido, making sex painful, irritating and quite frankly a chore. It’s a frustrating topic because the vast majority of reasons for a decreased libido are things out of a woman’s control: menopause, breast-feeding, disease, and side-effects of medications, to name a few. All these issues result in unenjoyable sex with their partner, which in turn leads to a lack of intimacy in their relationship(s), which in turn leads to having less sex. It’s a vicious cycle so serious that professions exist solely to solve it: marriage counselors, sex therapists, post-menopausal practitioners, medical doctors, and so forth and so on. We here at Wet decided to speak with some of these doctors, and were overwhelmed by their enthusiasm for our product and how it has helped their patients regain a new sense of intimacy in to their lives.

Here are the top 5 reasons Medical Professionals recommend Wet Personal Lubricant:

1.  Wet is an over-the-counter solution for temporary relief from vaginal drynessVaginal dryness is a common sexual arousal disorder. The causes of vaginal dryness are numerous, with the most common being: menopause, breast-feeding, disease, medication side-effects, stress/anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and low self-esteem. When vaginal dryness occurs, and a lubricant is not applied to either party prior to penetration, the likely result is that sex will feel like sandpaper. When that happens, her muscles shut down and her vagina says “No More. Game Over”.

The good news is, this situation can be prevented and fixed.

Doctor Lauren Streicher, Associate Clinical Professor of OBGYN at Northwestern University’s Medical School and author of Love Sex Again, recommends a silicone-based lubricant as a solution for vaginal dryness during sex. “Silicone is slippery, long lasting, latex compatible and does not carry the risk of causing a vaginal yeast infection,” Streicher says. She recommends a silicone-based lubricant over a water-based lubricant, because it is longer lasting and less likely to cause irritation.

Dr. Erin Gertz, Instructor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at Mount Sinai Hospital also recommends Wet Platinum for vaginal dryness. She tells us “I’ve recommended Wet to many of my menopausal patients and they love these lubricants. They are so happy to have a non-hormonal alternative for vaginal atrophy systems.”

2.  Wet is an excellent choice for menopausal and breast-feeding women.
Menopause can be an emotional time for women, not only because of the mood changes brought on by the vast decrease in her estrogen levels, but because she often believes it means the end of having a healthy sex life. Breast-feeding women also experience a decrease in her levels of estrogen, which often leads to the emergence of temporary menopausal like symptoms.

We discussed vaginal dryness above, which is an inevitable side effect of going through changes to estrogen levels. However, burning and painful intercourse are also hallmarks of decreased estrogen levels. Using a Wet Personal Lubricant that meets your needs will certainly help overcome these problems.

“I prefer the silicone-based lubricants for my post-menopausal and breast-feeding patients,” Dr. Stephanie Lee tells Wet. “I end up writing ‘Wet Platinum’ on pieces of paper and sending patients off on a search to their local pharmacy!”

3.  Wet Brings Couples Closer Together. It doesn’t take a doctor’s advice to figure out that physical intimacy is an important part of any romantic relationship. When arousal disorders arise in either partner, it can create friction and feelings of grief. Every relationship experiences its ups and downs, but an arousal disorder can create long-lasting ‘down times’.  Fortunately, Wet Lubricants, Inttimo by Wet™ Aromatherapy Massage and Bath Oils and Wet® Nuru™ Body-On-Body Massage Gel can help bring that spark back in to your life, to make you and your partner feel as good as new and feel closer than ever.

“Wet Lubricants products are a great ‘ice-breaker’ for patients that have arousal disorders to go home and try,” says Dr. Christine Isaacs.

Since Wet makes many products, ranging from silicone-based, water-based,  hybrid (water + silicone), cooling, warming, anal and flavored lubricants, to Wet® wOw Clitoral Arousal Gel, and a ‘his-her together’ lubricant, Dr. Isaacs is right. There are an array of options to choose from, that will certainly spice up your sex life.

“When my patients simply ask their partner to apply Wet Lubricant, that itself is a positive factor in helping many inhibited couples learn to make love to one another. It gives people permission to be openly sexual and be ‘daring’,” says Dr. Kenneth Pollock, Director of the Sexual Health Practice at New York Medical College.

4.  Wet Is Available Everywhere.  Wet has been widely available in love boutiques since 1989.  We understand that not everyone is comfortable visiting their local adult boutique. And not all of us live in a city where adult boutiques exist. Wet is now available in all major pharmacies and mass market retailers across the United States and Canada.  The adult boutiques offer a wider selection of Wet products and other intimacy products.  Wherever you choose to go, you’ll find Wet there. 

“Not a day goes by that I do not mention your products,” says Dr. Jacob Klein. “The availability in CVS and Walgreens has certainly helped.”

To locate a store near you, that carries Wet, please visit Wet Locator.

5.  Wet is the best. Wet is worth it.  Dr. Michael Goodman, pioneer of the development and advancement of Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery and author of MEN-opause, The Book For Men, tells Wet, “I LOVE your products and they are #1 on my list of recommended personal lubricants for my patients (as well as #1 off the shelf at home, but that is another matter). A major part of my practice involves sexual medicine, and I always counsel regarding external lubricants. Favorites are your 'Wet Original' and 'Wet Platinum'. I just bought a bottle of Wet Platinum and have it at my girlfriend’s house.”

Dr. Lauren Streicher recently appeared on The Steve Harvey Show, holding a bottle of Wet Platinum in her hands, recommending a silicone-based lubricant to the 40% of women who currently experience a sexual arousal disorder. She explains that “...while household products such as olive oil, baby oil or lotions may be more affordable, they are not recommended because of their potential for yeast infections, irritation and not being condom compatible. Cheap household items Are not designed to be used in or around the vagina.”

What it boils down to is you get what you pay for. Wet Lubricants can enhance your life. Dr. Colleen Swayze, board certified Obstetrician Gynecologist agrees. “Wet is a Godsend,” she says.

Sexual Adventures are Better with Lube!

Lube


As a college girl, I’ve never really been a fan of having a bottle of lube in night stand. Somehow, I had it stuck in my head that pulling out lube in the heat of the moment would be a turn off. After all, getting wet is a natural bodily process - and admitting that your lubrication isn’t always up to par was kind of like admitting a biological defeat.

For a very long time, I was the kind of girl who could get wet just by brushing up against a hot guy at the bar. Then, after going on some allergy meds, my tropical paradise turned Sahara dry, and even my favorite vibrator produced barely more than a lick’s worth. As I started to journey into the lube section of the toy store, I realized there were many more options than met my little lube-virgin eyes. Suddenly, a world of possibility opened up, and I discovered all the many types and uses of lube!

Now that I’m happily off my allergy meds and my vagina is back to the flourishing jungle it once was, I still haven’t gotten rid of my lubricants. In fact, I’m still trying more and more, and finding more ways to use and love them! Whether you’re using it as an aid for dryness or a fun way to spice things up - there comes a time and a place in every gal’s sexscapades that a bottle of lube can come in handy! Here are some of my favorite reasons to reach for a bottle of lube - and why it is one sexy accessory that every girl should have in her naughty drawer!

Lube for Everyone!


Don’t be shy about reaching for lube if you’re needing a little extra glide, or just want to turn up the heat in the bedroom. Like me, you may be in your twenties, who thought that lube is for when you get older, have kids, and your parts aren’t working like they used to - but that’s not the case at all. There are a thousand reasons you may need a little extra lubrication. Maybe you are on a medication that dries up your sinuses, and guess what, your vagina too. Or maybe your partner is raring to go and it will take a few more minutes for you to catch up. Or maybe you’re just looking to try something new. Using lube doesn’t mean something is wrong with you, it just means you’ll get a little extra support, excitement, and stimulation when and where you need it. So lube up, let go, and start playing!

Flavored Lube

We usually think of lubricant as part of penetration, but lube doesn’t have to be on just your lady bits. Put it anywhere you want to be licked, sucked, and caressed - like your neckline, nipples, panty line, or other erogenous zones - to experiment with taste, touch, and sensation during foreplay. You’ll start to taste sweet and sexy, like an aphrodisiac was poured onto your body, waiting to be licked off and devoured. Your partner will be instantly attracted to the places you enjoy the most, and he won’t be able to stop himself from getting each and every flavor off of you. There’s nothing better than the sensation of your partner’s lips and tongue as they greedily search your body for more of your seductive, sweet taste. You’ll feel like you’re being served a-la-carte, like the most expensive desert at a 5-star restaurant in NYC, ready to be enjoyed in an erotic feast.


New Sensations

Lubricants with added sensation are a fabulous way to heat things up in the bedroom. Literally, they heat up or cool or tingle - they’re designed to. Regardless of your preference, they are designed to provide some extra stimulation and sensitivity that makes touch and sex feel even better. Lubricants with added sensation are designed to be used during sex but often, women find that having a warming or cooling sensation internally can be uncomfortable. Personally, I’d rather not feel like my vagina is a fire ant hill buy hey, some people are into it. If you cringe at the thought of warming or cooling, you can still use them externally on your clitoris, outer vaginal areas, or even on your nipples. Many arousal products can provide some extra stimulation and sensitivity, without being used internally. It is fun to experiment and switch things up with your partner - and sparking up a sensation storm is a very novel way to do it!


Big Toys and Big Men

Sometimes all the natural lubrication in the world isn’t going to get his fist and forearm of a penis into your delicate flower. The first time I ever reached for a bottle of lube was when I was faced with something that looked more like a toddler’s arm holding an apple than a penis. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Lubrication is the body’s natural response to arousal - and feeling wet actually makes you more aroused, which in turn makes your vagina expand. Just remember, the body has its limits. I don’t care how wet you think you are; your body is never naturally wet enough to prepare yourself for a freak of nature. Apply liberally to yourself and your partner before trying to fit a watermelon through a keyhole. Trust me, you and your vagina will thank lube in the morning.

Anal Adventures

If you’re diving into uncharted waters, you’re definitely going to want reach for lube, lube, and more lube!! The vagina is naturally self-lubricating, but the ass is not - so slather a hefty amount of lube on you and him or you and your toy, and keep applying it to both of you throughout your sexy time. Remember when you got your wisdom teeth out, and the doctor told you to take pain killers before you felt any pain? Yeah, it’s exactly like that. You want to be pro-active with your anal lubrication before your partner starts to feel like a painful #2. Lucky for anal lovers, there’s lubes made specifically for your back door adventures. Reach for a silicone-based lube, which tends be much smoother, long-lasting, and non-drying for the best results. Just be sure to lay down a towel refrain from using it with nice lingerie or silicone toys. Silicone can stain any material it comes in contact with (which means you’ll be throwing out that gorgeous chemise) and is known to melt silicone toys over time.

June is HIV/AIDS Awareness Month and June 27th is National HIV Awareness Day



This year, Wet Personal Lubricants has partnered with Chicagoland HIV Testing Collaborative’s (CHTC) "Step Up. Get Tested." campaign by donating 100,000 Safe Sex Kits containing a condom and a sample of Wet Platinum Premium Silicone Lubricant.  The Wet Safe Sex Kits will be handed out at mobile HIV testing units across the Chicago area June 5th through July 4th, 2014. The goal is to not only test at least 5,000 people every June, but to reduce the stigma and fear that surrounds HIV testing.

Last year, CHTC’s "Step Up. Get Tested." campaign made 40,000 contacts in one month and tested well over 5,000 people, giving away 100,000 Wet Safe Sex kits in the process. This campaign is one of the many HIV Testing and awareness campaigns happening in cities across America to mark this awareness day with activities that encourage people to get tested regularly for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. We believe everyone should say yes to the test!

“We’re proud to be the exclusive lubricant sponsor for Step Up. Get Tested.," said Michael Trigg, founder and CEO of Trigg Labs. “We hope our safe sex kits will increase public awareness to reduce the stigma associated with getting tested for HIV. It’s so important to get educated, tested, and to know your current HIV status. Information is power and with that information you can protect yourself and others and, if necessary, get the proper treatment and counseling to live long and healthy lives.”

GET TESTED!

The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. Testing is relatively simple. You can get an HIV test from your doctor or healthcare provider, community health center, Veteran’s health center, a local family planning clinic, and other many locations.
HIV testing is available FREE and ANONYMOUS in many places.  For HIV testing resources visit:  www.hivtest.cdc.gov
To learn more about HIV and the stages of the disease that lead to AIDS, visit the Center for Disease Control.  www.cdc.gov/hiv

CONDOM SENSE!

Using a condom is a very effective way to prevent contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or infection (STI).  The catch?  Only Consistently + Correctly = Effectively

Condom Tips:


Check the expiration date!
Yes, they do have one.  Look for it before you purchase the condoms and before you use each one to be sure that it hasn’t expired.

Buy condoms that fit properly.
Like us, condoms come in a variety of sizes. Condoms that are too tight are uncomfortable and don’t leave enough room for semen to burst in on the scene. Condoms that are too loose can hold air bubbles that can increase breakage. They can also slip off easily. For more details on condom sizes, go to http://www.condomdepot.com/reviews/best-condoms.cfm

Store condoms in a cool, dry place.
Latex can dry out and become brittle when it’s stored in summer heat or winter cold or when   temperatures vary throughout the day. Your glove box or your wallet may seem like the most convenient option but they are not the best places for storing them.

Open the wrapper with your hands.
Sometimes they are tricky to open.  It’s tempting to use your teeth or scissors.  Teeth and any other sharp instrument should be avoided, as the risk of puncturing or tearing the condom is higher if you do.

Put the condom on before there is any genital to genital contact.
Any exchange of bodily fluids harbors the risk of transmission.  This exchange can happen well before penetration so be sure you wrap it up before the action gets hot and heavy.

Lubrication is important!
Placing a drop of personal lubricant on the inside of the condom before you roll it on will enhance your enjoyment. Using lubricant generously on the outside of the condom will reduce friction and thereby reduce the risk of the condom breaking. Use an FDA approved Personal Lubricant such as Wet® Light®, Wet® Platinum®, and Wet® Uranus™ Silicone-Based. These have all been certified as 510(k) medical devices for use with condoms.

Be sure it is not inside out before you start.
Both the tip of the condom and the rolled edge should be pointing the same direction.

See illustration here:  http://aidssupportgroupsaba.com/photographs/condom1.jpg

Do not unroll the condom before you put it on.
You must unroll the condom down the shaft all the way to the bottom. This can apply to toys too.  Do not share toys with your partner unless you put a fresh condom on the toy in between uses.

Pinch the reservoir tip while you are rolling on the condom.  Once the condom has been rolled on completely, be sure to squeeze out any air bubbles.

Hold on to the base of the condom when you pull out. 
The muscles of the vagina and/or the rectum are strong. They might peel that condom right off.

Take it out with you to prevent spilling the contents on or in your partner.
