Hi everyone,
I'm a gay male. I know that in general when you have sex, you shouldn't "double bag" your condoms because that could cause them to rub against each other and break.

In the case of double penetration, when there are two condoms worn by two different men, do the condoms rubbing against each other in the presence of lube still present a risk of breakage? I'm not sure if these two situations are the same, since double penetration allows you to apply and reapply lube between the two condoms.

Thanks for your help.

I think you might be using that term to mean something other than it usually does. What it usually means is that one person is engaging in sex with entry with more than one partner in more than one orifice. Condoms worn be insertive partners would not have any contact with each other.

Oh, okay. What I'm referring to is two penises inside one anus at the same time.

That's something much more likely to occur in porn than in real-life, if for no other reason than the rather large challenge when it comes to the physics of the thing, if you follow me. And no matter what, it'd need to be understood that that would be a very high-risk activity just per injury, let alone STIs. The STI risks would also be quite high due to the high risk of tissue tearing from an activity like that.

In that case, would condoms be more likely to break due to friction? I think it's a given that they would.
