Hey everybody. I was just wondering how many of you have ever had a condom break during sexual activity.
I've been using condoms for about 6 months and I've never had one break.

I've never had one break during sexual activity, and you know why? Cause lube is a wonderful thing.

Although I have to admit that I once got a great variety of condoms and stretched them out to see which one would break the first - trojan, by the way. It was a fun way to spend an hour on a rainy day, haha.

Well even though everyone here seems to hate them...I've been using Trojans..

And with lube, I've never had one break. Remember to put lube on the inside too!

astroglide is ideal. thanks to astroglide, i've never had a condom break. i've tried other brands, and they get sticky too quickly or they've caused odd rashes.

I would have to agree with gumdrop, Astroglide is ideal. We had to use KY Jelly when we practiced putting them on in Health 10, and it was so gooey and sticky. (in my opinion, that just wouldn't work)

I did. I had one break and of course they were Trojans.

It was bad, I went kinda crazy when I saw it was broken. We didnt use lube. I know, I know, I should have but we just didnt that time.

Always use a good lube and a good condom, and you will be in good ol' shape!

I have,
there was no lube around, it was like a spur of the moment thing, and yeah. But it wasn't that big of a deal, i don't remember what brand it was. But i do remember taking a trip to planned parenthood the next day.

I've had one break once. Luckily, I'm also on Depo, so I didn't have to worry.
