I was just wanting to check - I slept with somebody last night and the condom he used was one out of his wallet. I know that you're not supposed to store condoms like that because the warmth/friction can cause the latex to break down, but is the result of the broken down latex that it's more likely to split, or is the condom inherently faulty even if for all intents and purposes it did the job?

Hi techie,

Increased likelihood to split is the risk. As with condoms most of the time. It is still a whole lot better protection than none at all.

Right. So given that it didn't split, the level of protection was I should expect?
