I'm not entirely sure how to describe the situation I find myself in, but I'll give it my best shot.

I find that, in certain positions (particularly doggy, but others included), the condom I'm wearing will get really tight. The only way I can describe what's happening is that it seems as though there's some sort of suction effect, but one in which my penis is sucked into the vagina and the condom out, so that it's stretched tight over my penis. This happens to the extent where my foreskin will be pulled forwards over my penis, and my penis becomes bulbous at one end. The sensation decreases, for obvious reasons, so I have to pull out and readjust the condom, which generally involves just masturbating myself until it goes back to normal.

It's a problem not only in terms of reduced sexual pleasure, but also because I sometimes don't notice until the condom breaks because it's being stretched so tight.

I think this may be a result of how I'm putting it on, but I've spoken to a few friends and nobody else seems to have heard anything about the problem, in their own experience or others. I don't see what I'm doing wrong, if I am putting it on wrong.

This has been the case for multiple partners, so I can assume it's something to do with me! It happens for different brands of condoms.

Any thoughts, ideas, stories would probably help a lot.

Are you using a drop or two of extra condom-safe lubricant inside the condom before you are putting it on? Are you using extra lubricant on the outside as well?

Based on your description, it sounds quite likely that this is a lubricant issue. The condom is basically getting stuck and pulling due to the friction. Natural lubrication doesn't tend to stand up to the latex very well, so extra lube is always a good thing.

I've never tried that. That sounds like it should work. Now I just need to wait the 2 weeks to test it - ah, the disadvantages of a long distance relationship [Razz]

Thanks for the advice [Smile]
