If the only way she would consent to sex was my usage of a condom, then I guess I am not having sex with her. I leave to go somewhere private to think about her to fix the urge… better than condom sex to me. Before it even gets that far, even when it is casual, I make sure I know her stance on wrapping it up. If those are ever even considered, I consider other people.
It might seem like common sense that if you don't want a baby or an STD, you use protection. But according to a new study , one seemingly irrelevant factor plays into whether or not a guy wants to wear a condom: how much he's into his partner. For the study, University of Southampton researchers showed 51 straight men photos of 20 women and asked them to rate their attractiveness, how likely they were to have STDs, and how willing they were to have sex with them—with and without condoms. Unsurprisingly, the more attractive they found the women, the more they wanted to sleep with them. But the weird part was that attractiveness made them disproportionately want to have sex without a condom. Which could be flattering if you weren't worried about, you know , getting pregnant or an STD.

But trust me, forgetting about condoms can make your life hell. What baffles me is that even though we know that using condoms prevents the spread of STDs and STIs, we still tend to be reluctant to use them every single time we have sex.
