Vote for your favorite design in the New York City Dept of Public Health’s condom contest. It’s good to see a city government willing to pour money into an ongoing campaign to make condoms cool.

Stories from the Field

Posted by Condomologist on April 16, 2009

Contest winners are in. I asked the ladies for the good, the bad, and the ugly from their condom history. One story sheds some light on a key step in the condom-using process and why it’s necessary to pull out the penis soon after ejaculation. The other tale is more humorous than anythng. Enjoy and take heed.

#1 — The most impressed I’ve ever been with a man in bed: the one-night-stand who put on the condom with one hand in two seconds flat.  Even though he was kind of terrible in bed, I totally wanted to do it with him again just to see that trick one more time.

#2 — One time my boyfriend and I were having sex with a condom, and everything was working out great.  Two orgasms later, he pulled out, but the condom stayed inside me.  Big bummer!  The next morning I went to the student health center and took emergency contraception just in case any semen had leaked inside of me.  We didn’t know you had to be so careful about holding the base of the condom upon exit.

Calling all ladies and dudes with man purses

Posted by Condomologist on April 11, 2009

Contest time! Rachael from Just in Case has kindly donated a few of her wonderful compact condom carrying cases. They’re beautifully designed, discreet, classy, got a little mirror when you pop it open to make sure you’re looking fly — then open the inside compartment and there’s two condoms awaiting you. They come handsomely packaged in a red organza gift bag. I’ve got two of the YouthAIDS model, purchases of which help benefit YouthAIDS, an HIV/AIDS education program of Population Services International. To win one, I’m looking for best and worst stories from women using condoms. We focus so much on men’s pleasure when wearing a condom, but we all know that condoms affect women’s pleasure as well. Give me details, make it juicy, thorough, helpful to others who may find themselves in the same situation. I’ll publish the winners — keeping everything anonymous, of course — the middle of next week. For real for real: you want one of these fresh cases. Submit entries on the Condomologist contact page.

Contest Winners: Hot sex with condoms is possible

Posted by Condomologist on March 18, 2009

I asked a few days ago for readers to submit responses to my query about making sex with a condom hotter, sexier, enjoyable while still safe. Winners receive hot new condom carrying tins from Ready Two Go. The following are some responses from the winners:

From winner #1:

1) Use a better name than condom.  Baby batter balloon, rubber mitten, banana peel…

2) Try using flavored condoms in case you finish first and still have a job to finish.

3)  Use textured condoms.  Ribbed condoms are okay but a studded condom may be a bit more exciting for your partner.

4) Try using different types of condoms.  You can get non-lubricated condoms, then you are free to use any kind of lube that you want.

Winner #2 says:

You can only really put it on correctly if you are fully erect, so using a condom encourages sufficient foreplay.

If you use a colored one, it makes your penis look like some sort of superhero appendage.

If you let the lady put it on it can feel rather sexy and ceremonious.

It is cool to leave evidence that you had sex in the bathroom.

If you pull it off only at the end once you’ve pulled out, you can still achieve that pornstar status (if she’s down, of course) while still being safe.

And winner #3 tells us:

My orgasms are much better when I wear a condom. But this is due to my circumstances. And, while the mental and the physcial are certainly intertwined, this has more to do with the mental than the physical (I think). When it comes to having an orgasm, I have two “mutually agreed upon” options. These options are based on whether or not I am wearing a condom: (1)if I am not wearing a condom, I have to climax outside of the vagina; (2) but if I am wearing a condom, I have the option of climaxing while pumping away. For me, my orgasm is better when I climax while pumping away (although there is something to be said for shooting your load over her body). So, for me, condoms make sex better, hotter because I know that I will have the best orgasm available to me. I sent a friend a text a few minutes ago and he said that condoms suck (no surprise), but that they also make sex less stressful.  Because stress has a tendency to screw sex up, and stress-free (or close to it) sex is better than stressful sex,  wearing a condom makes sex better, hotter.

Win a Tin

Posted by Condomologist on March 13, 2009

Yes, it’s Friday the 13th again. And that means the first ever free contest giveaway here on the site. Thanks to the folks at Ready Two Go, I’ve got two sweet new condom carrying cases, complete with two condoms (Lifestyles Form Fitting — though I’m assured that you can refill them with other Lifestyles models that are packaged in a rectangle shape to fit the tins), 1 3ml ID Glide lube packet (a favorite brand of mine, even if just a tiny sample that may not be ample enough for hot anal sex), and 1 STD Information card. The tin is about the dimensions of my iPod Nano, though a bit thicker to accomodate the contents. Great conversation starter. Slick design. And, of course, you’re always ready two go — in the bar bathroom, the back alley, the back seat, a seedy motel room, your Congressional office. And if you’re a winner, you’ll either receive the one pictured below or, if you’re a big fan of The Ramones, I have one of the special edition Marky Ramone tins.


To win, contact me under The Condomologist tab at the top of the page and send me 5 ways to make sex with a condom hotter. Have fun with this, think outside the box, invent new ideas. I’ll choose the best (or only) responses and publish them, without names of course, unless you specify otherwise. The contest is open through Tuesday, March 17th.
