pink-condom-02Amongst the different contraceptives available today, condoms are the most convenient to purchase. To answer the question about who buys condoms, the answer is any gender. Condoms that are bought at the drugstore, convenient store or the supermarket have different price range and options for you to choose from. It really is not that big of a deal who buys the condoms, but women should always remind their sexual partners of the importance of wearing one.


Condoms are a type of contraceptive that helps reduce the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections and having an unplanned pregnancy. It’s also not a big issue if a woman provides the condom, actually it’s safer to have one instead of leaving it up to your partner and what’s funny is that your choice might be better. Men have different brands or types of condoms that they prefer but you as a partner should also have a say about it.


Even if the most common type of condoms are latex made you might like the non latex one better, there are also different thickness and texture and it’s up to you to explore your options, but in any case men should also have one in hand just for back up. But, did you know that there are condoms for both men and women. That is why; women can choose to buy condoms for themselves instead of buying one for their men. Women can buy and wear their own condoms; in that way responsible women will have more confidence when having the encounter.


A condom is defined as a barrier device that is used during sexual intercourse to reduce the chances of impregnating a woman or contracting sexually transmitted infections. A male condom is rolled onto an erect penis before penetration and works by blocking the semen from entering into their sexual partner. Male condoms are made out of latex; some are made out of polyurethane or lamb intestine. The male condom is easy to use, convenient to buy and in some cases has few side effects. The male condom is only used once.

The female condom is usually obtained at health clinics or with health care professionals. As to how the female condom works, it’s totally different from that of a male. The female condom is worn inside the vagina and is usually 6.5 inches long. It should be put in 8 hours before sex. The female condom should also be disposed after sexual intercourse. Also, never use a female condom and a male condom at the same time the friction might cause both condoms to break.


Now that we are more knowledgeable about the male and female condom, truth be told, men may cringe at the thought of a women buying a condom. But, it’s a different age! Condoms are not something to debate about, women can buy one, in fact women should buy condoms.
