If you are a guy who can have multiple orgasms, is it necessary to change condoms inbetween?

--------------------
In a strange room, before you are emptied for sleep, what are you. And when you are filled with sleep you never were. I dont know what I am. I dont know if I am or not... how often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.

Depends on how you qualify "multiple orgasm." If you are referring to a guy who has a very short refractory period in between orgasms, and each orgasm results in ejaculation, then
it is necessary to change condoms after each orgasm. You don't want to have sex with a partially filled condom, as it could increase risks of breaking and slippage. Chances are the refractory period, however small, will give you a chance to change to a new one.

If you are referring to a guy who has a series of non-emissive (dry) orgasms separated by a very short refractory period, I would guess it would only be necessary to change after he ejaculated. You might want to have someone back me up on this one, though.

ps -- and if he doesn't ejaculate, period, you should still change the condom after each individual sex act.

So presumably if I ejaculate and she hasn't had an orgasm yet, I need to change condoms if I want to carry on for her?
(If that was a chauvinistic way of putting it it wasn't supposed to be) [Smile]

Yes, a new condom must be put on when changing sexual activities (especially anal/vaginal) and between ejaculations. Bear in mind too though that intercourse isn't particularly satisfying for a lot of women, in which case changing condoms isn't necessary but using say, dental dams for oral sex, would be.
