Which are a better form of protection, male condoms or female condoms?

Male condoms tend to be more reliable in general, mostly because they're easier to use and more comfortable to use. There's a significantly larger nuisance factor with female condoms, and a much bigger chance that they can be unintentionally used incorrectly (it's very easy to accidentally get the penis into the vagina but outside of the female condom, and not really notice it... when that happens, you're not protected at all). Male condoms are the preferred solution for most folks.

male condoms all the way. female condoms are kind of new and still need a couple of bugs to fix. male condoms are much, much, much more reliable, not to mention more comfortable.!
